    This part depicts 3 villages (Charny, Bras sur meuse et Douaumont) and railways, station, bridge, churches, mill, hill, fortress, canal with lock-gate …
    Many targets for bombers.

    The next part will show the battle front with trenches, factory, castle …

    The landscape has the same scale than those printed on the maneuver card.

    He intends to present this mat to Ares Games to release it or to any partner who would be interested for its production (Aerodrome Accessories ?).

    If you have any comment and suggestion, I'm sure he would be glad to hear about it.

    Here are some pictures of Reviresco planes painted by Cyril Leroy (presented on Reviresco website) :

    Default Verdun Sector

    The map would great for an ongoing campaign. A few years back I made tactical maps for each sector of the Western Front from the Channel Coast to Verdun for a campaign we were playing in Brisbane - this map looks like it covers just as much ground!

    It is the altitude line (map elevation), area where you can't fly at a too low altitude.
    Or a good area to place your anti aircraft guns ...

    it's a very good idea to put this altitude line on the map

    Altitude line: absolutely fantastic! Why has nobody thought of that before?

    I have to dig out my copy of Ricthoffens War, old AH game, and see what they have for scenerios.

    I know I'm jumping ahead of things but it would be nice if it could be printed on the same material of the orignal Nexus' mats: it's light, strong enough to handle and flattens out nicely on the table...

    But like I said ..this is bit premature
