Old Style Sand Table

I just stumbled across a gamers blog, Service Ration Distribution (Hobby).  The blog's owner, Simon is from Scotland and has a very clever old style "sand table".

The photo shows the table before the sand has been added - why paint the bottom blue?  Water features can be added by just pushing the sand aside - Brilliant!

He's also got a very impressive collection of minis show the blog is definitely worth a look.

We used to use a sand table all the time, but now a roll-out grass mate does the business - with less sand everywhere!

Quite clever, but the sand would drive me crazy.

We used these thing to great effect in the Army, and I've even gamed on a few, but yeah... the sand gets everywhere. :/

Must be a lot of sand in to this, cool idea ;-)
