Of course I could have gone with a small, simple river which would have been useful across a wide range of settings. Also I could have done a small pond or a swamp or the like. But I simply had to build me a proper sized channel. Not necessarily a terrain feature that will see lots of use but hey, sometimes you simply have to go with that little voice in your head nudging you on to try your hand on something big and maybe a little daft.
At first I had in mind something similar to the Channel Richard Clarke built for his awesome looking Chain of Command game at Crisis 2018. But having bought one of the girder bridges by the fine folks at Warbases I realized it'd look rather stupid if this kind of bridge would sit almost flush to the water surface. So instead I choose to build a channel with raised embankments. I don't really know how (if at all) common this kind of channel is but it'll do its job for now.
Thanks for viewing and stay safe!
