With a horde of Tirolese rebels streaming off the painting table in the final quarter of 2018, they will need somewhere inhospitable from which to descend to plague the Bavarians, French, and what have you invading their homeland. Regular readers may be aware that I already have a fair bit of mountain back drop pieces - 2 tall mountains, 2 long mountain back drops, and a "lonely mountain". I wanted to add to this to better set the stage for my Tirolese games. Thus the above pieces were added to my "Mountain" collection.
This "Village Base" is a sort of plateau; suitable for, well, a village or other Alpine settlement.
Two "Medium Mountain backdrops".
Two "Large Mountain backdrops".
Here's another view of the five new sets laid out.
Each set comes with a small bag of wire "snowy pines", that can be stuck right into the foam of the pieces. Note that these "Mountains" might also be almost as well used lying down. with the straight "base " edge at the edge of the table, representing the foot of the mountains. These pieces (and the others I have) all have the "mountains" with red-brown rock, reminiscent of the American Southwest, whereas the rock of the Alps are decidedly grey in color. I will not be worrying about that myself, however!
Meanwhile, I am working on scratch building some Tirolese style buildings.,..
