I like an attractive wargames table but it still has to be playable on, and usually has to be set up and taken down in an evening.

This is really important - one of my gaming mates as terrain boards that have hedges glued to all the field boundaries - this looks great. But is really a pain to play on, unless you are playing a bocage fight in Normandy in the summer of 1944. And even then you have all the hedges the same, so all have to be heavy bocage, or just simple hedges.

Whereas plonk down terrain on top of a base cloth, doesn't look quite as good, but is much more versatile, and much more game friendly.

Good one!  Smiley

For some reason - and I can't fathom why this should be the response - the only tune readily available in my head was ZZ Top "sharp Dressed Man"
Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am goin' to.
Silk suit, black tie,
I don't need a reason why.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man

Actually I tell a lie - that was second. the very first was "I've got 25 lighters on my dresser, yessir" but that made even less sense  Cheesy

My mother told me, frequently, not to do that at the dinner table, but she also opined that if one had nothing good to say, one should slag off mercilessly.

I've had more fun playing "Tunnels and Trolls" with unpainted figures than against some rulesmith with a preponderance of Tigers and the innate ability to pull out rule 27.4.3 para 6 saying that PIATs can only fire on a Tuesday.

It doesn't have to be expensive. I would humbly suggest that less that 10 of Pendraken goodies could net you sufficient for a really good skirmish game in just about any period. You can refight the Falklands air war for the same amount with Tumbling Dice models.

The game is the thing. It's meant to be fun.
