For most of this year I have been working on Dark Age stuff. Started off with painting up 30 odd Vikings and then 40 odd Saxons. One of my wargaming buddies, Wayne from http://dispatchesfromthemess.blogspot.com/, suggested I make a Viking ship. That took up a few more weeks. But then the Vikings needed somewhere to raid. So, then it was a Saxon village and with that I ended up making some Dark Age fences as well. Now I just needed somewhere for the boat to land to drop off the Vikings. This brought about the making of the beach. I made this with the thought in mind of using one of our terrain boards and making beach type terrain boards to go around the outside.
On Tuesday night Gavin, from http://tabletoptactician.blogspot.com/ and I set the scene for our first 28mm Dark Age game. We used a Table Tennis table that was blue and set up the terrain boards on that. Gav did an awesome job on the sea with the waves and rocks placed around to help disguise the joins in my beach boards. Then we placed the rest of the scenery and took a few photos.
The game was played on Wednesday night and a full report will be up on our group blog http://southern-strategists.blogspot.com/ as soon we get it sorted.
