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!.
