In this event, however, there was a war going on, with the players' side having a command post with a big map. The map needed to be a strange fantasy Britain, so we used a medieval map and printed it out split over 16 sheets of A4 to fit on four large pieces of foamcore.
But what to use for models? We had about a week and a half to get this ready, so we used a load of 1/72 figures I had lying around for the rank-and-file troops. For the rest, we used all sorts of things:
|Painted models I already had lying around!|
|Cheap plastics bashed together to represent specific characters!|
|Reaper Bones! Board game figures! Weird free models!|
|Old toys I'd had lying around for ages!|
|Yet more Reaper Bones!|
In the end, I think the players had a pretty good time.
