Man, I am creating a lot of threads lately. Anyway...

Last year I posted about my new/old gaming table.

Well, this year I added to it. Due to games like X-Wing and Robotech, the 42"x30" table was just not big enough. I needed something bigger. So a couple weeks ago, I decided to make a 6'x4' board to place on top of my old art table.

~$17 for the board
~$8 for the felt (green on one side and tan on the other)

And then some stapling, cutting, and gluing....and not I have a two sided board for any sort of grass or desert fight. It looks and feels so nice.

The problem is where to store it right now. Once I have that down, I am thinking of making another with gray felt on one side for rocky Warhammer 40k look, and black on the other for space. Then I will just mark up the felt to make stars.

Anyway, here are a couple pics. The first is the green side for Robotech (using some quick Deadzone buildings).



Second is the tan side for X-wing:



My buddy and I have already enjoyed a game of Relic Knights on it, and I have ran an epic game of X-wing on it too. But I would love to hear if anyone has ideas to make it better....especially for the next board. I am not sure if ink will look good for stars, or if beads will get in the way.

Where's your lichen, styrofoam hills with pipe cleaner pine trees, colored felt for rivers/roads, and fields?

Non-existant as of yet, but that helps me.

Right now I just have the Deadzone scenery and a whole lot of rocks. Heck..rocks are free to get so why not.
