What to do when you're in bed with flu? Travel back in time and build a table bedtop terrain.
I made one a few years ago, using an (empty) ammo crate. Never tested before.
I grabbed some 10mm minis (it's a small crate) and tried Fubar Medieval, because thousands page rules are too much of a challenge with fever.

A small game: a band of Orks trying to invade the Patrak Forest, defended by lizardmen.

The crate, and starting position of the tribes: Orks are bottom left and Lizard are ready for an ambush



Morbeer the great Ork warlord cross the river, ready to invade the Patrak Forest



....but Stinkchroom, a Lizard bowman, warns his comrade



and the warlord Morbeer must face Flychroom the Lizard master for an epic duel



The Ork’s left wing slowly cross the impetuous waters (but fail their activations after that)



Watching from the cliff, Stinkchroom spot the Ork’s right wing, as Morbeer is fighting for his life



Stinkchroom let his arrows fly directly in the heart of an Ork bowman, while his friends get in the back of the right wing



Morwater, only survivor of the right wing, fight fiercly



The left wing finally enter the Patrak forest and easily defeat two lizardmen guarding the cliff’s access, but a bit too late



as Morbeer succumb under the Flychroom’s sword



Morwater finally exterminate the lizards on his wing, but his master is dead. The Orks flee away bravely.



Aftermath:
I wish I could have this kind of box when I was a child  Cheesy
Maybe building one with magnetic sheets under the basing to keep the minis in place?

I love it...Smiley

Could you make a comparison shot with something for scale identification. Or tell us what measurement the box has?

Cheers,

That's the right spirit for a wargamer.  Cool
Never give up, never surrender!


BTW, nice terrain!

It's about 30x40cm on the inside. It's an 7.62x39 ammo crate and there was two very heavy metal box inside. A gunsmith give me those in the early nineties, and it was obvious to use it for wargame terrain nearly a decade after.
I made another one, ww2 flavoured, inside a military crate made for military nails. As nails are more useful than ammo, the nail box is bigger (but too heavy for a bed top game).

I'm Warren Abox, and I approve of this message.

That's such a great looking setup, I'd have to think you'd get a lot of takers if you ever brought that show on the road.  You could throw everything you need right in the box, rules included, and just drop it and play.  That's really clever - chicken soup for the wargamer's soul.

I take it the units are not magnetised?  Worried if you shuffle or sneeze!

If so it reminds me of http://www.iandrea.co.uk/wargames/glads/page42/page42.html

Now that's an idea! Really great what you came up with.

Since there was a question hidden between the nice pictures: Do build another one. There's great potential in this sort of things!

Now that's a clever idea, I might have to try that out once I find a box of that size.

Thank you for your comments

Always sick, so another boring battle report with plenty of pictures

However, a bit of a warning is necessary: this post will show frontal nudity (Amazons in 10mm)  Grin and some considerations that could hurt some people tied to an unconditional love for some things on the WEB   Roll Eyes . As the fever grinded my imagination, and the lack of ideas for a Fantasy scenario distressed me, I had a sudden flash: Playing the fight of a barbaric tribe (Lizards) against the plagues of the Internet.

The Lizard Tribe want to clean his Sacred Temple’s ruins located in the Forest of the World Wide Wargh, and invaded by an amount of strange creatures: a  Web Troll and his ferocious Amazonist bodyguards. Some Popup Skeletons haunt the forest, Spamerz Dwarves are trying to sell you mithril junk and a horde of little Fanboiz leaded by a magical Salezman absolutely want you to accept their point of view. The Lizards cannot longer tolerate such blameworthy behaviours in this Forest. It’s a time of war and suffering.


A Web Troll, ready to throw things at hikers



Amazonists wants to kill every living male, for the purity of their race



Popup Skeletons, random and annoying appearance



Spamerz Dwarves, always trying to sell you something with armed persuasion



The Salezman and his horde of Fanboiz



An aerial view taken from a giant eagle, a Spamerz has been shot by an arrow (bottom right)



Full of rage, the Web Troll throws his angry rocks



Lizard blocked by an annoying Popup



As the Lizard are in a narrow wood, the Salezman take this opportunity but lose his business



A hard fight between Lizards and Spamerz, will the Lizard succumb under the number of those Spamz?



Popups are of an astonishing strength, the Lizards are exhausted



The Fanboiz are disorganized after the lost of their Salezman, an are quickly wiped



As the Lizards fights their way across the forest, Amazonists quit their hideout for a more strategic position



The Troll throws all sort of things and inflicts some casualties to the Lizards



Rushing Lizards, but the not 300 Amazonist block the way. An attrition fight begin



A lot of Lizard perish under the fatal fury of the fanatics Amazonists…



…until the last of these harpy finally dies. The Troll is afraid and alone, a lot of unspeakable words come out of his mouth, hurting the Lizard’s ears.



The Mighty Web Troll is shamefully defeated by an arrow. The Lizard’s clean up is a success!

Laugh
Great idea!
And a nice battle report.

This thread is getting increasingly entertaining. (But don't be afraid, no one is going to wish you to have to stay in bed, as this would be too selfish. No, honestly. Trust me...)
Get well soon!
