Well, I thought I would throw another project on the heap.  I need two, corner position, mountains and part of a valley.  Here are some photos of the opposing positions needing mountains..  Once again the photographs are with and without flash.

Here are the rough drafts of the two designs.  One shows lookout positions, and the other will also, but they will be air accessible only.

To make room in the work area for the next two mountains, I have to, finally, finish up the two enclosed base modules:post-9266-0-33598200-1462587041_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-61479800-1462587327_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-55415600-1462587629_thumb.jpg

As is evident, CAVs will be severely restricted getting on the wall, as well as the road next to the wall.

Well now, I have been remiss in posting the finished base.  That goes with working on five different miniature groups and keep things sorted out at the same time.  In these photos you can see how narrow some of these corridors are.

Even the Jaguar is severely limited in access to the base.post-9266-0-13683000-1480120930_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-37200500-1480121730_thumb.jpg

A Mastodon Mod. (from Sgt0700) cannot enter the base without an Airlift.post-9266-0-20689300-1480121389_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-44493900-1480121096_thumb.jpg

This is project 18 that is Mountain 6, in the above plans, that have been fleshed out to include a partially hidden Air Base. post-9266-0-43513900-1480123567_thumb.jpg

 

The Base is from a Flatbed Scanner box that was drastically cut up to fit the desired space.post-9266-0-25338600-1480123298_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-27808000-1480123381_thumb.jpg

 

The other piece remaining, will probably end up fairly close to full size in another mountain project.

 

These are for an article for Armada in General SciFi:

Good stuff!

 

Doesn't making the super-narrow entry point hurt playability though?

Not really, if you consider what type of force to put in the base and the cover you have available.  If you are attacking on the other hand it may be a problem, but then again it depends on what you bring along to drop on the party.   It is just a matter of learning to make due with what you have to work with.  Besides Battlefield Commanders need to be challenged all the time.

Just played with my maps Friday and Saturday.  Pulling them out I messured 12 feet of boxes to fit all but one map.  Have to get a taller box and repack so they all fit.  Next I am going to make a 3/4" by 3" outside wall to keep the maps neat and tidy.
