Reinventing My Modern City Boards
But there's a problem with them. To put it simply, they've warped. I could blame it on storing them in my loft. But I don't think that's the cause. I think they warped because I stuck foam core sheets onto polystyrene boards. Old boards at that. And whilst some people could overlook the curvature of the boards, I can't stand the way they go together now.
There are a lot of options out there for your base boards. There are some truly wonderful gaming mats being made these days. I've not been tempted though as I don't want to game on a flat surface. I want my pavement to be raised above the level of the road. But more than that, I want a board with a layout I can change between games.
I play a lot of different games, across both historical and fictional milieu. This leads to the need for a lot of boards. These in turn require a lot of space to store everything in. This, you understand, is not an easy thing. And my journey to find appropriate ways of making, and finding space to store my hobby hasn't been plain sailing.
I clearly need something similar and more square to suit my modern city boards. And thankfully that problem has been solved for me. And it's thanks to TT Combat once again. They have produced a gaming surface in 3mm MDF that stacks away very nicely into a single office supplies box. The set comes with connectors and all the right angles fit together like a dream. And you get 4'x4' made of 16 squares for what now retails at £34.95
And as to buildings, well, if I had the money I'd buy some from TT Combat. But I don't. So I'll be scratch building them as well. I don'the know if I'll be able to get them to fit in a single box, but I'll certainly give it a go!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
