I think it may well be worth having a little look at all the work that went into putting this extravaganza on for so many people to enjoy.
When we arrived at the Foundry site midday on the Friday we discovered a Marquee which was unexpected. There were two massive tables, I didn't think to measure them they were massive. Given the cloths I put on them I would guess they were about 6' wide by 10 to 12' long. Unlike the vast majority of the foundry tables they were covered only by a grey green cloth not the usual foundry textured ground. Never mind all we needed was a large table because at the last minute I decided to bring both my green cloths along this covered just enough of the table to allow us a huge area of grassed land in front of the walls of Avalone and behind the walls the table stayed appropriately grey.
|The field of battle, we have just finished setting up the terrain and the troops are being added.|
|Paul's fields and hedges.|
|Mr Rab's Tower.|
This wall was horror of horrors unpainted, though it didn't look too bad in the bare grey metal. The reason for including was not only did it look great but it was contributed by Bryan himself. They were the masters for a never released set of stone walls that were to have come out at the same time as the Mighty Fortress.
|The road to Avalone.|
|Harry's houses with Bryans wall in the background.|
|More of Harry's houses.|
|Thantsants set of gates infront of my own providing the gate house.|
|My brothers Elven tower.|
So there we have it Seven people contributed to the terrain alone for this game. I thought it looked awesome though a bit of me knows we can do better.
