33 foot by 7 foot "map"

This is the table cover for MillenniumCon 2007. We are putting on a corps-size Napoleonic game, with 24-figure battalions.

There will a styrofoam ridgeline in the center where the big monochrome light green splotch is, and of course it will be decorated with trees, lichen, buildings, and a thousand or two figures!

A ground cloth may not be the most beautiful thing, but it beats plain felt in looks and is a lot more portable than terrain boards when you drive a Honda...

Very impressive . . . just picture how it would look with the SYW "big battalions".

Well...the SYW did indeed have a few battles in Europe, too, didn't it?

What a good idea and well executed!

I stole the idea from a 6mm article in an old Courier...and kind of "supersized" it.

Excellent plan.

I look forward to more report about the results!

Vive L'Emperur!
