Fellow UK Geeks,

They are selling these boards in Woolworths at £10 each, or two for £15. They are a good size (100cm x 70cm) so they will fit most games that do not come with a mounted map.

Oh dearie, dearie me, I might even start looking at GMT!




The above quote is from my comment on my image.

I have shewn my image for Gettysburg: Badges of Courage as an example. Thumb the image if you like it!

Honestly, these seem seriously good value but, I think they are only in the larger stores. I got mine in Glasgow.

Regards,

It's very nice - but are Woolworths really selling this as a 70x100cm piece of perspex for wargaming, or is it a picture frame or something for a shower unit or similar?

Gary,

It's actually called a Clip Frame and it does come with clips to clip the perspex front onto what looks like a hardboard/compressed wood backing. They advertise it to be used as a poster frame. Quite neat and bloody good value in my opinion.

Thanks - that's brilliant - not only do you get the perspex, but you get a nice big bit of card - handy for those game designing moments (the clips can go in the bin).

I'll be down Woolies at the next available opportunity.

That's great news. The only poster frames I've found so far have been glass and after one broke on me I didn't want to go down that road again. Very messy!
