WIP Ardenne Abbey Normandy

I have commenced a big project, the Ardenne Abbey and its surrounding buildings, after visiting during DDay week with our Canadian guests. The Abbey and grounds are quite huge, around 400m square, with two entrances, surrounded by a 12ft stone wall, extensive gardens surround the main church, and trench positions or the mortar sections still exist at the rear of the Abbey church. It was the defended by the 12SS who used it as a observation post and HQ almost to the end of June. The 12SS executed 20 Canadian POWs and buried them in the garden, most were not found until after the war.I plan to make the buildings removable, but leave the gardens etc so I can use the board for a chateau and outbuildings also.CheersMatt
