First Off a very big THANK YOU to both Tony Curtis at GMT Games LLC and Lee Brimmicombe-Wood who kindly have given permission for us to do a limited print run of the Downtown data cards and Play Aid for use with the Minis game for the Newbury Demo. These two are definitely on my Christmas card list.
The rules changes can be dry so we also need to look at terrain options as the Downtown map is well designed and adds flavour to the games. The team at Fight's On kindly provided a set of target markers for the game which you can see below along with a couple of my home made efforts of specific targets for the game at Newbury. Mine were taken directly from the DT map itself whereas the fight's On markers are generic. Madness can come from the home made route so if you want to get going quickly then these guy's get my recommendation.
Some early shots of the Newbury Colours 2010 table. The base is a Hotz European Fields map with 2" hexes overlaid. The water area representing the Gulf of Tonkin was then hand painted a were the rivers and roads/railways. The idea being to replicate the Downtown play map.
The Target areas are built from 2" hexes with Styrene strip relief added and painted to match the mat.
