A bigger river

IMG_5520

Above you see the river I build for my gaming table a wile ago. Now that there will be brown water navy boats available in the near future, at least after the Corona lockdown is lifted, I thought that I would need a wider river to accommodate 28mm boats. I have a modular gaming table layout with extruded polystyrene squares for variety. The approach to the new waterway is a different one. I have a gaming mat permanently beneath the styrene squares which is used for naval wargaming. I thought about just building “shore” tiles and use the gaming mat as the river surface. In that way i can have the river as big as I like or I could even build a shoreline for amphibious landing games. Here is the result:

The half wide “squares” are the new tiles I build.

What do you think?

  1. That is just what I am looking for. I too have the polystyrene squares. What material and process did you use ? I want the same thing for ww1 East Africa as I have paddle steamers that can sail along the river.
    Many thanks as this looks brilliant.
