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.

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.

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".

Here is a photograph of the Hexon Terrain covered with a mat. The latter has gradually conformed to the shape.

When I get back from travelling then I will dress the table further.

The terrain mat has settled enough to enable some ground cover to be added:

While not directly related to the Anzac Cove landings, here are some X-lighters from PT Dockyard. These LCIs were used by the British for the Suvla Bay landings later:
