Well the first weekend we got together proved to be more on planning and scale than actual work but we agreed that the centrepiece was going to be Hougoumont. Having acquired the hovels complete Hougouagged it out and commenced the cleanup of all of the buildings. Matt on the dremel and me with the soapy water to clean the release agent from the resin which is left by the moulds.

The next step was to determine the scale and dimensions of the battlefield. Having a 18m x 10m shed helps but the maths of scaling the distance if in absolutely correct scale would make the length of the battlefield around 48m long and about 20m wide. This wasnt practical so we have settled on 14.4m long and 6m wide. so that equates to 8 tables long and 5 tables wide. Each table is 1.8m x 1.2m which in old terms is 6ft x 4ft. Each table will have three 4ft x 2ft terrain tiles two long ways next to each other and one long ways on the end to make a perfect rectangle.
With that in mind the initial Hougoumont terrain tile needed to be two 4ft x 2ft tiles joined together to make a 1.2m x 1.2m square. We are using high density insulation foam as the basis for the terrain tiles backed by 6mm MDF. A note to the uninitiated in buying timber mdf boards precut to 1200mm x 600mm although they state that they are this size the normal is 650 x 1250 so the circular saw and straight edge come in handy. Measure twice cut once has worked to date. So with that in mind we are on our journey which will continue on the weekend.
