While I haven’t had a chance to work on it much, I finally trotted it out for a short game recently. I’m going to finish this one way or another, but I’ve had some aesthetic concerns. First, I’ve been a little concerned with the general look of big ‘mechs on little terrain. Ends up that the unpainted plastic figures from the introductory boxed set work oddly well; being unfinished they strike as being more figurative than representational which fits with the discrepancy of scale. Also, the terrain actually makes their unpainted medium grey color less offensive. I wonder if their smaller then full sized bases also helped. (When a figure with a normal sized base is next to a hill it almost looks like an un-based mech is standing on a higher level). Pulling and holding the wooded hexes when moving into them and noting it for combat wasn’t so much of an issue as I thought it might be, remembering to put them back though was. Simply putting a slip in those hexes would solve that, but ideal to set up the board by moving the trees around without the second step of marking their positions. The hills have been warped for a while, but I was a little disappointed with how the board itself seems to be holding up. While the slight bowing that the spray-mount seems to have caused isn’t a big issue by itself, if I were to make four boards and set them side by side it could get ugly. Finally, no excuse for my poor photography, I promise I’ll get a real camera someday.

    Those are the “plastic figures from the introductory boxed set“. ;)
