ÇNAPSHOT takes shape

I just got these:

I’m now working on using the Cepheus Engine to drive Snapshot.

Here’s an example of where I’m going: Skills in ÇNAPSHOT

SNAPSHOT is a half-inch grid/15mm fig system.

But, since I’m an exclusively 25-32mm guy I needed an appropriately scaled deck plan to play on. So I got these from Far Future Enterprises.

After cropping them and cleaning off the excess info I ran up the hill to my guy and had them printed at 200%.

Not bad …

All my human-size figs are on 1″/25mm round bases. At 200% the grid works perfectly.

Now we can all see what happens, When Space Ninjas Attack!

Both the 100-ton Scout/Courier and the 200-ton Free Trader scale up just right.

Here’s a great overview of SNAPSHOT on BoardGameGeek.
