Roadsigns 1985

on Fri Mar 16, 2018 9:48 am
From our test game the other day, it just didn't have a modern feel to it, so I dusted off the roadsigns that I made up in 6mm and upscaled them for 15s.  They are editable so I can print a strip out at a time, give them a spray varnish and mount. Still trying out some different options as they look small compared to modern armour despite being based on some I took from a HO Railway kit and scaled up

Very nice, looks good! Although i am now pondering how it is possible that the distance between Rastatt and Solingen is only 24 km. scratch
But what is worse, the Soviets have almost reached the Rhine! Evil or Very Mad

The distance between Rastatt and Sollingen is just over 16km Very Happy

At least the Sollingen that's just ouside of what used to be the Canadian Airbase at Baden-Sollingen. Very Happy

Not that close to Dusseldorf though.

On the signs is writen Solingen with one L only and famous for it kifes. And Solingen is indeed near Düsseldorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen.
You mean Söllingen in Baden-Würtemberg, writen with double L and an Ö (thats one of those letters with two little points above it wich are so peculiar to the German language Very Happy ) and not an O. Also i have do admit that the Americans just omitted those points on one of their maps.

But that are just some fine details, what is important that the signs will look right on the table when playing WWIII and that they do.

Will fix that on the next print run. The map in the book isn’t real as far as I can tell so things like the road and autobahn numbering need to be ficticious.

These were the masters I made up so I can change the numbers and names easily. I will PDF them up later and provide a link. If anyone wants specific signs PM me.

It looked like two l's on the sign to my aging eyes. And since I don't think there's a Rastatt near the other one, I drew a different conclusion. I'm also biased by having spent a bit over 5 years in total at the Kanadischer flugplatz there (in the days when everything was painted green) Smile

And yes, I missed the umlaut. My command of the German language was typical of a young infantryman - enough to get me into trouble, but not enough to get out of it. Laughing

Spot on.
I was looking at the HO stuff but most of it seems to be outside of Northag, are German train buffs all Bavarian?
If you share that pdf, I'll be even closer to getting a table built this decade...
