English wargamer and gamemaster Martin Knight and I have been corresponding about the order of battle for an upcoming wargame he is running for the 1862 Battle of Antietam. He sent me a few photographs of one of his recent games.
Note the painted teddy bear fur used for grassy fields. Cheap, easy to use, and durable!
Here are three more photos.
A longer range shot shows Martin’s use of the fur, dyed in different patches, as ground cover for his wargaming table.
His troops are nicely done. Notice the unit ID flags.
