One thing I’ve noticed is that wargamers (probably unconsciously) are most comfortable with terrain that looks like the landscape they are familiar with. Blackhat wants hedges, which are extremely English – indeed, post medieval English.  My friend John from Atlanta always lays out battlefields that look like Georgia; we have to take off half the trees.  People from Nebraska own no hills whatsoever. They’ve seen them in photos, but never in real life.

I assume the Lagos Wargames Society always has a certain amount of mangrove swamp in their Napoleonic battles.



I do all my own stunts.
