Academy Games has a new game out called 1775: Rebellion. I pre-ordered it, and then had an idea:
What if I could get Scott MacPhee to paint up some 28 mm AWI miniatures from Perry and Foundry to use instead of the wooden cubes?
That would be cool.
But they wouldn't fit on the regular board. Maybe I could make a big version of the board...you know, 6' long. The figures would fit on THAT!
So I contacted Uwe at Academy Games and asked if I could get the file for the game board.
He was very obliging, so I sent the file to my graphic designer, Jim Provenzale at Fast Forward Design in Downers Grove. He was able to make my monster 6' board.
So, the mad idea became a reality, and here is the result:
Yep. I think I can play on this. :)
Thanks to all those involved in making this happen.
And to those who want to play,
I'll be bringing the game to Gen Con.
