I had the pleasure of attending an all-day game at Wyvern Wargamers this last Sunday. Ade Deacon invited us down to play a game of Big Chain of Command.
I was struck, yet again, by what a difference it makes to a layout when buildings look like they are a part of the table, rather than simply being placed on the board.
The addition of walls, gardens and flowers, at least for me make a huge difference to the look and feel of a table.
Yet again, Ade has inspired me to look at our own collection of buildings, an aim towards making them a lot more ‘lived in’ looking.
I was enthusing a lot about this during the day (as you do) – Mr Luff (bless him) simply looked at me, rolled his eyes and was heard muttering “For goodness sake, just paint some bloody figures first!”
He may have a point…
