Gamer's Eye View of the City

Merry Christmas!  My own little gift to you is a few shots of my completed cityscape.  Check this bad boy out.  Nine square feet of battleground ready for armies of little plastic warriors.  Of course, if you have more table to fill, and you have a ice gray drop cloth, you could put 4-inches of space between each city block and have a full 4-foot by 4-foot table.  How cool is that?

Pleasant parks, seedy industrial districts, this town has it all.

That big building looks massive centered like that.
The great thing about this set-up is that I managed to avoid a table full of open site lines along the north-south and east-west directions.  Between the angles building supports and sewage plant, there are enough angles that you can't just plunk a heavy machine gun in the center and prevent your enemy from moving out of one corner of the city.

The unified paint scheme ties everything together well.  Here
you can see the ladders used for accessing levels.

I don't recommend playing on the patio.  I had to run
from the rain half-way through taking these photos.

A maze of sight-lines keeps things far more interesting.
You might be wondering how I can justify calling a big setup like this 'portable'.  Just wait until tomorrow...

  1. It's an interesting combination - narrow roads mean you can't get vehicles in, broken sight-lines mean you can't do much overwatch, but breaking cover is likely to be fatal if the other guys happen to be keeping an eye on that spot.

    ...'ere, Top, can we just call for arty?
