Another quick posting today - I am unwell and don't feel up to much else.
Some folks have suggested that even when treated, floral oasis is too fragile for wargames use - they are wrong! I have made a couple of videos showing the materiel before and after a soak in PVA (using an unfinished Spanish mission) My wife kindly dropped a hammer on the samples to show the effects.
Granted, she didn't wallop with much force but this is more trauma than your average gamer will cause unless he is akin to Aunt Petunia's favourite nephew! There is a slight indentation from "take 1" but this is minimal damage.
Remember the treatment is just phase one of the process and that the next stages serve to strengthen the structure further.
With some luck I will be able to get the completion of Fort Kalypso documented on the blog this weekend.
