|A little small but it'll do.|
We discovered this Revell German Submarine Type IX C 1/72 Model Kit online and were enthused at our options.
At 1063mm long (42") this meant we would have to carefully work out the best way to place this on the board to get the most benefit.
Combining this with our city heights project (the planning and the result) was our solution, as you can see by the video above and the photos here.
Now we have a little work to do.
|Add Boat Here|
Then we need a gantry to go across the boat and some walkways from the boat to the sides.
Lastly - or firstly once the kit arrives this week - will be building and painting the whole point of this board - the submarine!
What else is there?
We then have the fun mission of working on the armies we will be using.
We are considering setting this as a battle just after the Sword Beach landings in June 1944.
We'll see what response we get and how play testing goes.
More next week as we progress.
Our public playtest of this game will be at The Combat Company on Saturday 21 March. We will also be having a second board on which we will be running our Boot Camp.
Let us know if you will be coming along.
