SEVASTOPOL

This Week’s post is just a quick picture dump of my mocked-up SEVASTOPOL board. The idea is to have a multiplayer game outdoors, providing that the Delta Variant of Covid levels off over the next few weeks in the UK.

The plan is to play the game at Front Scale Orbat (FSO) with three or four stands representing a division, and one stand representing a regiment or brigade. My band-saw is up and running again; it took six months to source a replacement blade due to lockdown shenanigans. I have cut a few more river sections and painted them a lurid icy blue, the better to stand out in pictures.

The 14 x 8 squared board is being used for convenience, but the game should play better on a non-squared board. Squares distort the terrain too much, making everything more rectilinear than it should be. For mocking up a game though, squares are unrivaled.

    Sounds great Chris. I’d be interested in playing if you have space (and depending on dates etc). We’ve played a few outdoor games at Tim’s.

  3. Thanks, Pete. I find it helpful to lay out a game to see if it works on the ground first , if it’s going to be a bigger one.

    Regards, Chris.

  4. Looks good, Chris! 🙂 I’ll be interested in following this, particularly since you have naval assets as well!
