My New Terrain Board

I finally got around to building a new 3x4 ft terrain board. I don't mind my gaming mat, but there are a couple of issues, especially when it comes to Adventure games.


First of all, the 4x4 ft gaming area requires quite a lot of terrain to fill. Furthermore, the uniform green surface meant, without terrain in every corner, the table could look quite bland. However, with the slightly smaller surface (which will make no difference with Adventure games) I can get away with far less terrain and, in turn, start bringing the Adventure games out to geek night more regularly again.
Here's a shot overlooking the bulk of the table. As you can see, it's a mixed brown and green surface. Also, I can accentuate certain areas by building and fence placement to give the sense of roads. 


We have a new geek in the group and, in addition to already ordering the miniatures for his first Impetus army, he's shown some serious interest in Chaos in Carpathia as well. If we ever end up with four regular players in attendance on Saturday nights, I think we'll play a 6-game mini-campaign in the new year. I'll keep you posted and, as always...

Thanks for reading,
JET

Wow. Truly inspiring. I'm thinking I should make one now.

Thanks guys. The best part is the board fits in the trunk of my car (I drive a Chev Impala). I certainly won't shy away from making more boards in the future.
