September 1st 1939 – still waiting

So much for not holding up the game when I discovered I had missed creating an entire unit (see earlier post).  When I came to set up the battlefield I found I was short by three slope hexagons, so an emergency order to Kallistra was prepared.  At the same time I ordered some new houses from Total Battle Miniatures to replace the Irregular Miniatures buildings I intended to use, which look a bit small against the new troops.  If they don’t arrive before the new hexagon tiles I will press into use some nicely painted American Civil War models I bought at a tabletop sale last year.  They are a reasonable substitute, judging by newsreel film of September 1939 recently viewed.

So now it’s a race.  Will the new hexagon tiles arrive before the buildings? And in the meantime I can start painting the missing unit.

  1. I spent the summer of 2003 making the terrain for Gettysburg with Geohex, only to find that there were chasms between hex-tiles to lose 6mm figures in. It’s a good medium, but the hexagons are not always accurately shaped. I strongly recommend Kallistra, which has the bonus of connecting clips, but shipping to the USA could be prohibitive.
