Return to Tradgardistan or a virtual table top trip

 I decided to set up my 1930s Tradgardistan figures combined with terrain I had been working on. The idea was from the old General Thingy Gigs wargaming page which was/ is crammed full of inspiration. I haven’t been on it for absolute ages. This was my second attempt at making these hills as I abandoned the original effort as it didn’t look right. The pictures below show what I have done.

  1. Well done!

    Reminds me of the old Major Generals webpage. I've often thought that it was a good idea that I could use for some circumstances but I never screw up the oomph to try it.

    1. That’s where I first saw the idea. I would be interested in seeing a bigger version for 40mms or even 54mms . I can’t work out if it would work for the bigger scales.

  2. This is the same approach I am planning to take for modeling alpine fighting for WWI Southern Front games. Very well done!

    1. I am really looking forward to seeing what you do. I will be particularly interested to see it with your 54mm figures.

  3. Tradgardistan...not to be confused, of course, with Tradgardfontein, the capital of the Erstatz Free State, the third Boer Republic, who was led by President A M Gruber in the late war...

    1. I look forward to hearing much more of the Ersatz Free State...

  4. What a great idea, and it would add depth to any table-edge terrain.

  5. It’s all about creating a small imaginary world. Height and depth are things I am currently playing with...
