Continuing the construction of the battlefield I have completed the painting of some roads:
This is what they look like joined up with a unit on them. It also gives a feel of what units will look like on the table in relation to the hexagon size:
This is a ford hex:
It is important to note that a crossing needs to be made on a curved section of river, otherwise the road cannot cross at right angles. The ford can also double as a bridge (scratch built from a Peco N scale tunnel kit):
As mentioned before I plan to use 15mm scale buildings and this is how I think I will configure them on the table:
The same building occupied by a unit, which just fits the hex nicely:
I have also picked up some Lilliput Lane items very cheaply on eBay, this one cost 99 pence, plus postage. I added a little paint to the base to help it blend in (not really ACW, but looking ahead to Command and Colors!!!!):
Now all I need is for the hills to arrive. I need to think about trees for woods. These will likely be mounted on bases and free stand within a marked hex on the mat.
