As I've said I was not really happy with the table or ground or what ever you should call it in those games, but that's a problem I've found in a lot of the games I played over the years, I think the hard part is getting the terrain to blend in with the ground it's set down on, just call me fussy lol.
In the picture above this is not a problem unlike in some below, so in this post I'm going to explain to you what I've done to fix it & how I'll get over other such problems going forward.
Clicking on the pictures will enable you to see them in a bigger size.
|The good old green grass gaming mat where most games are played out on|
|Just doesn't look right does it ?|
|Even when you use terrain with bases it's very hard to blend it in right|
|The F.A.T mat from FLG these are love & we a good few of these in the DDG thanks to Mike T|
|But even these suffer when you put down terrain with bases on them|
|A 3x3 gaming table I made using cork tiles, cost of gaming table about 36 euro including paint & dip|
|A piece of terrain I made sitting on it as you can see it blends in every well|
|Unless you go for a modular table this is as good as it gets & it good enough for me.|
|Been made up of 12x12 tiles means that storage is not a big problem|
|But it also has another advantage as you can see in the picture the board has changed a bit|
|If you want to invest a bit more time & money this board can very easily be changed around|
|As this side shot shows the board is rising, how this is done is by making a tile with a couple of layers of tiles on it & then use other tiles to raise up the ones behind it|
For those that's interested this is how the gaming board is made
|I covered the cork tile in per mixed tiling grout|
|Next create an uneven surface|
|You finished board should be something like this, then just paint as you want, I used an army painter cream coloured spray & army painter dark shade dip which I painted on|
Well that's it as always my thanks for dropping in.
