I've been making some more terrain squares, refining and speeding up the process as I go. I've made another 4 boards with the sides done for a further 4. I've been held up a bit by the lack of polystyrene sheet ( A pox on Bunnings). I'm now pondering what to do with them. The current 8 board "set" is representative of southern and central West Germany. This covers the US, Germans and the French (as well as the Austrians), and to some extent the British as well. However when you get to north Germany things get a bit flatter in Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein (and Denmark)
I'm not sure how it will work on the table top as its a bit more open. Some modern gamers (well, most it seems) like an open board, but I'm not that keen. Smaller towns would be treated like woods, and would only be able to fit 1 stand. Tree lines along roads would only provide cover if the stands are in contact and stationary, and could be seen over by any one higher.
Long term I would like to do some terrain more suited to late WW2 ie Northern France and the Netherlands (though this is probably covered by the lowland/farmland boards), and also Poland, the Baltic states and Prussia, though a snow theme might be more suitable for the Eastern front. The real problem for me is to come up with any photos of prussia and poland in the time period.
