Jungle like a boss

Postby Darby » Mon Apr 25, 2016 8:13 am

I have to admit, this guy can make a table! Seriously dig the amount of work that has gone into this:

Now, I see this, and I want to go back to making my tile setup, but then I start thinking about the flexibility of having just a grass mat with items I can configure however I want and it get all confused and irritated by not being able to make up my mind and then I just do nothing... how about you?

I use mats. With all the different games I play, if I used terrain tiles, I would need a warehouse to hold them all. Not enough flexibility with tiles.

That is insanely beautiful...

Agree that a set-up like that requires a big house for storage, but wow... Why not dream big, eh? :woot

Beautiful jungle - I can practically hear the mosquitoes buzzing and exotic birds and monkeys making noises. :p I have never been a fan of terrain tiles, apart from for demonstration games, as they are too difficult to store and do not offer enough modularity, but that jungle has given me all sorts of ideas for combining that plastic foliage from the $2 shops that has been accumulating in my garage. :cheers

More than once in cleaning up a game a figure or two had been missing. Each time they turned up in a piece of jungle.

guys,
that's his SECOND jungle table. He is a big piquet player and ran a WW2 game at our local con about 10 years back. That table also had a walled village, lots of jungle and a river. table was about 4x6 and incredible. He commented on how all of us approached the table, scanning it for figures. ran a great game and didnt use that many figures. the only thing missing was the smell of feces, wood smoke and fish. This one looks much bigger. He is here in my state and hopefully will bring that to our fall con.

Sure made you think and feel Vietnam.

Anyone know what material was used for the rock face on the mountain? I'm planning a Lima Site 85 game and need to create something similar.
I had thought of using cork bark - but this looks better and not like bark?

I have found that bloggers will answer questions like that. The last one I asked had a wagon I wanted to identify. It was not his but he contacted the owner. I had the information from the blogger within two days.

LS85 would be a cool game.

But I have seen your Nam setup at cons, Tom, and it looks darn good and I would consider it top notch, especially as it has to be transportable!
