The New Blocks and how they look

With a skirmish line to the fore and artillery and cavalry in support the gallant gentlemen of the South prepare to engage the Yankees under the watchful eye of  their commander - Walter Gaylord Mitty the 3rd 

Whilst continuing work with the labels for the Balkan Wars I thought it would be good idea to show exactly how the new and larger blocks look in conjunction with the Hexon tiles and the Town in a Bag buildings.

A desperate assault as the Yankees come under skirmish and artillery fire

The new and larger sized blocks look far better in my opinion as they have far more 'presence' compared to the smaller sizes version of earlier. they certainly add to the look of the thing and you are able to fit 4 blocks comfortably within a single hex.

I have started work on the labels for the Balkan armies and will also need to acquire a few more boxes of the blocks for future use as I have a number of other ideas for this approach.

The rules are also on the agenda although I have nothing concrete tabled as yet.

Hi Geordie,

Many thanks old chap!

I am rather pleased with how they have turned out and the potential for their use is enormous. Needless to say I intend to exploit this fully in due course!

All the best,
