Youtube video : Winter wargames sand table using salt as snow


Decorating a new sand table for wargaming using fine-grain salt to simulate snow.

This was for a 1/72 scale wargame but the technique can be used for games in any scale.



After uploading the video I realised that the sound is very muffled, but the images speak for themselves.

There are subtitles on the video, to see them you'll need to open the video in Youtube itself and on the bottom bar, look for the “Closed Captioning” icon “CC” and click on it.

More videos are planned for youtube so if you want to subsribe to get updates, just click on the subscribe button below



Hope you enjoy it.

We baptised the table on Saturday with an Ardennes game, photos and game report to follow soon.

Action at Collective Twin Farms - Wargame Report

Yet another replay of Charles Grant's "Action at Twin Farms", this time in a Winter setting, late on Saturday afternoon against my arch-enemy Carlos.

Russians were defending the Twin Collective Farms with a Rifle Squad, Maxim Team, PTRD Team & 120mm Mortar.  The Germans had 3 Grenadier squads  with 2 x 251s + light truck as transport

Rules used were Disposable Heroes from Iron Ivan Games.

Scenario used 6 turns max. German objective to oust the Russians from the farms - Russian objective to avoid German Victory conditions.




















We played the scenario twice over a period of 3 hours and switched sides - on both occasions the Russians were victorious.

We plan to game the scenario again shortly, with some tweaks.


There were also some reindeer hiding out in the forest, but they were passive observers to the action and wisely stayed well out of the way
