After the launch of the first issue of my newsletter it was time to get back to Memoir proper. I’m already lining up some things for my next issue that I think will be of interest to all of you. Speaking of which…
I had an exciting breakthrough over the weekend with regard to my hill making. Initially I had thought about doing them in foam as I had shown in my old tutorial. Although they have come a long way since the big chunks I had originally done they were still after all, just foam cut and painted. My wife had a good challenge for me. “Would you be happy if you paid for these?” she asked. I saw her point right away.
There had to be a better way to get out a good quality set of hills. So I set to work on doing just that and by the end of the weekend I had produced a solid prototype. I now have the ability to offer high quality, standardized cast solid plastic hills for a reasonable price (a little more expensive than I thought, but well worth it and still far cheaper than any other set of hills available).
I will be offering a special price to all of my newsletter subscribers so watch for that in the coming issue. If you haven’t signed up yet, make sure you do, this will be a limited time offer.
This will be a complete set of Memoir ‘44 hills (20 pieces in all) made of sturdy durable colored plastic able to accept paint. They are set in 4 different yet compatible shapes and sizes. You will get 5 Tall flats, 5 Tall sloped, 5 short flats and 5 short sloped. They are the same shape as a hex (no rounded edges which made it difficult to keep a unit on them).
Perhaps one of the most exciting things about this breakthrough, is I can extend my range…cities and towns next!
