Having gone some way towards setting the scene for the action between Fezia and Rusland the next stage is of course to fight the battle. The picture above is of the initial dispositions of both forces deployed on a pair of Axis and Allies maps with some Town in a Bag trees and some of my Greek style buildings. The terrain is is very much an improvisation - Hexon will my preferred choice going forward - but I am very satisfied with the approach I have adopted and the the all important 'look' of the thing I must confess I am quite pleased with the end result and am looking forward to fighting the battle on Wednesday evening.
The Rusland forces (naturally in green) are deployed on the right of the map with the Fezian defenders on the ridge of Keder Sirt with the small village in the rear of the position and with the fortress set further back. From the dispositions the plans of the respective commanders can readily be discerned.
I must apologise for the quality of the picture - the maps are laminated and so I had to photograph the set up without a flash because of the reflected glare. Once I get my Hexon terrain properly configured then the photography will be far easier as the flock absorbs the flash to an extent.
Roll on Wednesday evening!
