Building the board for Bull Run. A short movie about how we built the terrain board for the first battle of Bull Run/Manassas.

Hmm, we're in the process of planning next year's convention game and that sort of terrain looks good in any period. Great work, Tobbe, and thanks for sharing. Thumbs up

Thanks for the nice comments all Smiley

We cut the MDF boards at 40cm by 50cm so they fit in a standard Swedish moving box:

Each board is wrapped in bubble wrap and 'stands' on the long edge of the box.

It'll be a while yet - we have until February next year to sort the whole thing out.
