Hey everybody,
I thought some of you may be interested in seeing these pics. It is a WW2 game/ conversion I have designed using the modified Heroscape terrain I posted pictures of previously. A lot more stuff has been added, hopefully giving some more ideas for outdoor terrain. The game (Deploy Destroy) was shown yesterday at a local game convention...enjoy!

In 1944, on a quiant European countryside...


Men arrived on steeds of steel and iron...


Others on mechanized Tigers of death, declaring themselves rulers of all human kind...


Once again, the world was thrust into terror...


As the icey grip of fear took hold...


And the earth became unclean with the blood of the dying...

Are you using the Roco Minitanks line or something else?

Excellent - and I believe you ARE indeed using Roco Minitanks, at least primarily.
Am I correct?

Hey guys,
The tanks and troops are Forces of Valor and Dragon Armor. 1/72 Die cast/ Plastic PREPAINTED models. They are amazing for the price. Aprox $20+ Cdn., which should be about $5 for you in the US... ;)
The Ambulance is Roco and has not been fully "assembled" or painted yet.

Very nice use of the Heroscape stuff. So does it mater that a tank takes up two hexes? How do you do that? One other thing. Does a tank have unlimited range so anything in LOS can be shot at? Those troops don't look much bigger than A&A Miniatures. Are they prepainted also? The lighting is spot on and the photo's are tight! Bravo on this.

Tanks take up between 2-5 hexes but movement is just determined from the front center of the tank. It's actually quite easy and works well. Tanks have limited range, otherwise movement would be almost irrelevant. The troops are aprox. 20mm (they are 1/72 scale). They also come prepainted! You can download the stat cards and reference sheets from my website link if interested in trying out the game.
I'm just having difficult trying to figure out how to incorporate planes. (Basing them could be difficult as the terrain can be uneven and occupied with other models at times.) I may just allow them to do "strafing" attacks across the board. It's something I'm working on...

Blast;

Planes are easy; They can start from anywhere on the owners edge, they move across at a speed that you (the designer) assign, but their minimum, for WW2-era attack fighter-bombers, would be roughly 4 times maximum for tanks, or they WILL fall down/go boom, and IF they end their movement on the board for that turn, they MUST end on an unoccupied hex, or are succeptible to ground fire THAT TURN, from ANY ENEMY UNIT in that hex (The "Golden BB" rule). Heavy Bombers will ALWAYS approach from owners center edge, can NOT be attacked except by AAA, and are not actually represented on the board, they are a pre-determined attack asset that MUST be committed by the user. Once you commit them, they can be "waved off" IF you have radio communication assets with your ground forces; otherwise, they will attack as scheduled, EVEN IF YOUR units are in the target area. tough luck, welcome to the Fog of War. This happened enough for real that it's justifiable in the game.
This could also work for Airborne troops and resupply; just factor in wind direction and speed, and you can allow for supplies going to the enemy instead of your troops, paratroopers captured on drops, etc.

Some pretty good ideas in there...mind if I "borrow" a couple?

Help yourself. BLAST. I'm just stealing from history and experience (look at my sig line).
