Thanks, glad you enjoy them
It's a Rhino which has the turret and 'sponsons' magnetised in a very lazy fashion. To put the sponsons in the proper place would require some cutting, filing, and drilling, and might ruin the Rhino, so I've stuck them in that silly-looking location and just tell myself 'Tzeentch mutated it'. It does bug me every time I look at it though
Regarding the terrain, for some reason it's just how that opponent prefers to set it up, he used to play ITC so I guess that's why. I don't mind the minimum size board so much after a few battles, I think I've just accepted it as 'inevitable' since so many people seem hell-bent on using it. For example last game I played was on an old-style mat but my opponent really wanted to mark out the area for the minimum size, so we did.
