I have a sheet of felt that I throw on the table and my felt-backed terrain modules go on top of that, creating a light velcro effect that keeps everything in place.
The non-felt backed hills go on top of the modules.
Here you can see my work in progress. What I am trying to do here is build and old-school style “travel battle” game. It uses MDF Napoleonic figures from Commission Figurines (you can see a battalion here), and it will swap inches for centimeters, using the Black Power rules. That means that what you see here is the equivalent of a 6×4 table.
There will be no flocking on this table: just paint. Here you can see six modules, a test forest, what will be a village, and a couple of unpainted hills.
We get slapped around, but we have a good time!
