Improvised Rivers, Ponds and Marshes using X-rays

Some time ago a friend from our wargame group, Juan Reyes (Brazo de Nelson Wargamers Club) had a brilliant idea of using cut-outs from old X-rays that he painted over with gloss paint to use as wargame scenery to make marshes.

In a recent game scenario we needed a wide river section to cross the entire table, and so inspired by Juans marshes, we cut-up some old x-rays with scissors to make improvised river sections.

These are not painted, just the bare X-rays but they actually work very well.

The game was one of a series of scenarios weve gamed from an Arnhem campaign. The bridge spanning the river is an Airfix Pontoon Bridge, mounted on supports made from Lego and painted concrete grey.

Back to the drawing board

Unfortunately the website was hacked last night and most of the information was wiped out.

Hopefully the poor lonely wretch who did this will look for the mental health counselling that he really deserves, and he might even be capable of eventually getting out and making a few friends and even doing something more productive in the future.

Anyway, it's not the end of the world and the site has been transferred today to a much safer domain hosting service on Google.

We'll have all the articles back here eventually, albeit in a different format, and it's a good opportunity to revamp and update some of the old publications with revised text and better photos.

Thanks to everyone for visiting.
