Often in CD Moderns games, I try to add in civilians in order to make the scenarios more challenging, and therefore more fun. In order to do this I created these stands out of a mixture of HO, 1/76, and 1/72 scale figures.
|Civilians: - Acting like they live here or something!|
These were painted by spray painting black and then painting with dull and dark blues, greys, and browns. Each stand represents 50 civilians and takes up 1 ton of scale cargo space. This can cause lots of fun in scenarios where one player has to transport the civilians out of an area.
|See that guy with the Sackbarrow? Bet you that's more than just the essentials!|
For Harad games, ebay was able to provide a number of 1/72 plastic Bedouin style Arab males and females. These guys are just great for complicating the Balkan games that occasionally occur.
|Eventually these guys will get fully based up.|
Having civilians on the tabletop makes for a different style of game, even if they are just there as window dressing.
