Re: Using Kallistra for "The Great War" board game

Hi, I have been considering putting two "The Great War" boards side by side - although I think it was intended that "The Great War" boards run two deep? For a double scenario - two boards side by side, all that it would take is for the trench lines to meet up in the middle of two single maps - then ...

Re: Using Kallistra for "The Great War" board game

Hi Dane

The little blocks in no mans land are Memoir 44 barbed wire pieces. I have seen some nice barbed wire models in the "Raging Empires" 1914 draft catalogue but I don't know how they are made or where to get them from?

Best wishes

Re: Tigers in the Snow - Memoir 44

Hi Dane There is texture on the tree underlays - I overpainted the green flocked ones - they did absorb some of the paint though covered ok. Also the river hexes were flocked ones originally before I painted them white and blue mixed with white so they also have texture. The hexon II boards themselv...
