Re: Anzac Cove battlefield

Here is a photo of a steam pinnace and tows, heading to pick up ANZAC troops for the landing. The boats are 1:600 scale mounted on ultra thin plywood measuring 1.25" x 2.5".

Re: Anzac Cove battlefield

Thanks Norm. I will post some more pics as the project evolves. Currently there is a terrain mat laid over the Hexon contours. The mat is slowly conforming to the contours. Then I will add the beach, shrubby landscaping, dirt road, etc.

Anzac Cove battlefield

Attached are two photos of the table I am preparing for the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli (25 April 1915). Each Hexon terrain level represents a 20 metre contour. The two stands illustrate infantry companies.

Re: Battle of Somme, July 1st 1916

Norm, if you get a heavier terrain mat (I use the Mat o War from Antenocitis) then there isn't such a need for the slope hex sides. The mat sits nicely and creates the slopes for you. That said, I have plenty of the slope hex sides because some of the valleys get too narrow otherwise.

Re: Battle of Krasnik - August 1914

Thank you both for the feedback. Norm, you are right. Our goal is to demonstrate something of the scale of WW1 battles. The Hexon Terrain is an important part of this, enabling the topography to be mirrored exactly. It helps get away from a large flat table.

Battle of Krasnik - August 1914

In late August 1914, a series of engagements took place in the vicinity of Krasnik, a town in southern Poland. The Russian and Austro-Hungarian armies were locked in battle for several days. My sons and I reproduced the 7th engagement in the Battle of Krasnik at the SELWG Show in London recently. On...
