OK; Possible skirmish weekend 14 Nov 09. Pick up your messages, gentlemen (and lady).
This weekend's progress was another 6' x 4' battlefield. Fourtykay is designed (apparently) to be played on a 6' x 4' board.
There is a suggestion that 40/40 might be played on a 4' x 4' board.
Now we have two, they could be pushed together to an 8' x 6' area for a tank battle. There is still one more to do; this would give us 12' x 6'. So us players can still reach the middle and there is enough space for the apocalypse battle.
We would, however, need trestles. Otherwise the dogs are going to stomp on the armies. I'd ask for help/suggestions, but I'm pretty sure that you arn't reading this anyway...
