Here are a few pics of the completed mapboard. This is a result of quite a bit of work from my good gaming buddy Vincenzo and I.
The creek in the centre of the board is the Pándzsa bordered by marshy and steep banks, with the fortress farm of Kis-Megyer in the centre and the town of Szabadhegy in an 'L' shape. The Austrians defended the Pándzsa taking the high ground, Kis-Megyer and Szabadhegy Town as their positions, with cavalry covering their left flank and the ford where cavalry could cross.
Unfortunately, I forgot to put the 2 bridges (on crossings on the Austrian right), on the board for most of these photos.

(another 30cm of plain board will be added to that side to
accommodate their deployment).

Let me know what you think and if you have any questions about the construction just ask. Hope you enjoyed it! More Raab progress as it comes to hand.
