ACW the big picture

Hi gents,

After last weeks transfer of troops here comes the fun bit!
Set this up after work today TSS tiles sitting on some conti board strips resting on trestles from B&Q this set up is only nine foot by four foot,I can make the table up to fifteen foot long but will have to stick to five/six foot wide to allow movement.


Acw on the nine foot by 4 foot table.

nearly two cabinets empty for this set up.

Hopefully pick up more of these tiles at the weekend.

It will be interesting to see the hole Acw collection on the table.

Union cassion by perry miniatures.

Bringing up the guns.

I am going to have to sort the lighting in this room for a better pic.
Off to make dinner now!
Best wishes
Willie

  3. Well now I'm really, really jealous! That said I haven't painted up enough miniatures to fill a table half that size. Must try harder!

  6. This is a feast fit for a wargamers' eyes, Sir. The soldiers and scenery are outstanding; and the shadows in the battle pictures, especially for me the caisson and horses at about noonish, are like super thick icing on a cake. Thanks.
