Carentan Terrain

OK, time to think about the terrain set up for the MayDay convention Carentan scenario. For the subject at hand, I have a nice set of Grand Manner Carentan buildings in 28mm. Also, a few years back, I spent a summer making trees and hedges...which will get a workout in this game.

For the dry run this weekend, I've done a terrain layout in my dining room. Happily, my wife cleared away all the quilting stuff laid out on the table there!

The block of ruins.

The orchard.

The cafe, warehouse and doctor's office.

The manner house.

Movement ranges in Disposable Heroes (the rules I'm running the game with) are fairly short...3" to 9". As such, I've made the terrain as dense as I can on the 6'x4' playing surface. I'll use these photos to rebuild the layout at the convention.

Photos of Fallschirmjagers up next.


  1. Jebus, that setup is nice! Those buildings are simply amazing.

  2. Stunning!

    That's as good a set up as any you'd see at Salute.

  3. Thanks guys,

    I feel pretty fortunate to be able to do a game set up like this. Can't wait to play it out.


  4. Wow! Wow! Wow! I love this table! Excellent work. This is a great inspiration of my various 28mm WW2 projects.

  5. completely awesome. Gorgeous, would be a blast to play on this table. - Jarrett

  6. Great stuff, what era are these buildings from?
