There’s tabletop miniature wargaming, and then there’s housewide miniature wargaming, a.k.a. certifiable insanity. I wonder if these guys ever get out of the house? Oh wait, they *have* to get out of the house, they have no place to eat, sleep, entertain, etc.

BTW: Terrain insanity of this caliber doesn’t have to be a time and money pit. Check out the equally amazing terrain these builders did for a “Got Milk?” virtual boardgame called Get the Glass!.

    What is “wargamming”? :)

    I believe “wargamming” means the same as “wargaming”, but the author used some mad-DIY skilz to make their own word.

    Or else, the author is: a) human, b) on the road, and c) tired.

    This terrain has actually nothing to do with apocalyptic wargaming. It’s a musicvideoset for the band “Strata”. Me and my colleage (i´m in the first picture) makes a lot of model landscapes for films and musicvideos and such. Check out the video! Should be done in a couple of days or weeks. “Stay young” is the song.

    Take care!
