Since I started out in gaming back in the 70s using miniatures, board games were always a fascination and source of intimidation for me. My imagination ran rampant with the possibilities of all the different eras and units to game with. Alas, since I had no gaming buddy to play and learn with back in those formative years I stuck to miniatures.
Now I can happily say that I'm transitioning and finding a way to combine both gaming genres.
Don't get me wrong, miniatures are still my first love but I'm finding that the world of boardgames is worth exploring.
Here's the game map.
It's almost complete. The white hexes are 1/4" thick Terrain Maker hexes from GHQ and are just place holders in the meanwhile so I can practice a few games. I ordered a 4x6 map wtih a 4" hex grid from HotzMats on a 'European Field' pattern and works great for my micro conversion. I'm having a set of flocked and contoured hexes for my hills coming soon.
Just for fun I posed a few figures on the table and took these shots. Those are two Cobras savaging some T72s.
