I love these kind of setups (pics behind the cut):
Dungeon Crawl 2015 (at 1000 Foot General)
Otherworld Skirmish- Burn Baby Burn, Part I (at Plastic Legions)
They remind me of the setups I used to do as a kid, with everything I could make terrain out of and all of my HO-scale soldiers. Plus, they're just flat-out beautiful.
Meanwhile, I have hex maps with circles drawn with dinnerware. It'll do, but it's simply not as cool.
