Just to put it simply the scale of the armies people may be bringing to either battle would be huge. It would be lots of medium sized armies. if we get picky on terrain then we might have trouble fitting armies on a board. I think that building brick roads is a waste of time because you can buy ready ones cheap as chips. I'm not saying an ugly battlefield is fine, but being picky may limit us on battlefield set-up.

You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Ohhh how how how, you're a rock n roll suicide"
