July 8th - Miniature demo set for The Hell of Stalingrad
I am in the middle of building a full scale Miniature Diorama for use during demos at the upcoming Historicon game convention in Lancaster PA.
Miniatures are amazing and nothing fires the imagination like an eye-popping battlefield. I was very impressed by the 3D versions of Settler's of Catan I saw being used at Origins, visually they were so much fun to look at and admire.
The hard part of doing a 3D version of the game was finding the right scale of miniatures. The tanks were problematic as my Flames of War armor was too large for the battlefield I had created. Fortunately, 1/144 scale armor is a perfect fit.
I am working on a set of miniature rules that will mesh with the cards and provide a new variant for THoS. Obviously it would not be something that sell in a box but for any entrprisinng fan who does not mind building his own battlefield it could be a fun new way to play the game.
