Awesome news! I recently had an idea that using miniatures and terrain pieces in the classroom setting would be way more effective than the simple PowerPoint projections of maps that I've used multiple times (I teach world history). However, to make it more useful, I decided that having everything magnetically-based would be better as it can be a vertical or horizontal learning tool. Well, my district (Colorado Springs district 11) recently sent around a notification that they had grant money available, so I pitched my idea as "Tactile Tactics." This morning, I was informed that they've accepted my grant request! I'll be using cookie sheets with maps magnetically held in place and minis with magnets in their bases. I'll be able to have my kiddos place the Axis and Allied forces in the correct countries. We'll be able to see in 3D what the phalanx formation looks like. We'll be able to see how the mountains of Greece made each polis unique. It's going to be AWESOME! As I continue working on pieces for it, I'll be posting images here. I've already ordered the Persian infantrymen from Wargames Factory on the bay! I'm also thinking I may have some of my more artistically-inclined students join in on helping to paint some of the pieces for it. If anyone's already got some experience with minis and magnets or how to effectively use minis in a vertical format, feel free to share your wisdom :=)
I've had these figures for about 20 years now. They're an old relic from before when I stopped painting some 18 years ago. The figures are supposed to represent some of the Hobbits and Gollum from Lord of the Rings, but I can't remember which. The only one I'm sure of is Gollum. The others I think are Frodo, Pippin and Sam. Frodo (?) Pippin (?) Sam (?) Gollum Group shot!
