Building Bavaria '45 Day One
A few weeks ago I went ahead and committed to the launch of my own Weird War Two rules. Well today I realsied that I have less than three weeks to go to our first gaming session of Weird War Z and I have not made any scenery for it at all! I know I could have just gone for some trees and fields, but I wanted the scenery to ground this game in Bavaria, Germany in the spring of 1945.
Which is an interesting problem in and of itself. If you run a search online, you'll see lots and lots of options for purchasing pretty much anything you'd like for Normandy. Of course, the Eastern Front is the other option that has a lot of scenery in plastic and MDF, pre-painted or not.
But anything specifically German? Nope. Not a lot at all. It's kinda hard to get anything German in general, let alone anything for Bavaria. You can see this is a trip off the beaten path.
But I'm resisting the temptation to give in and set it all in Normandy. I have good reason to. You can read all about it my reasoning here if you are so inclined: The Truth is More Terrible than My Fiction
So, armed with a few photos from an international youth exchange trip to Regensburg and Munich a long time ago, I set to work drawing out my plans onto some off cuts of foam core.
