If you are fans of battling in the stars, then what you need is a galaxy for your table! There are many options out there, but this one caught my eye. Eggbox Terrain is currently promoting their Starscape Kickstarter which is comprised of 2 elements- the mats and asteroids for your space!
The mats themselves are very stunning to look at, and yes, they are images from the Hubble Space Telescope. The cool note with this is that 10% of profit made with these mats will be donated to The Earth and Space Foundation, which is an international charity supporting both space exploration, and environmental sciences. How better to support our love of space than to contribute to research, to help explore galaxies far, far away and to boldly go where no man has gone before? (I couldn’t help myself!)
Then there’s the asteroids! The asteroids are cast in high quality yellow resin. They are highly textured to make painting easy by dry-brushing, though there is a painted option for those that just want something they can game with out of the box. The asteroids come complete with acrylic bases, which offers fantastic playability options for our games.
(And no, the X-wing ships do not come with the mats)
Will this Starscape be setting the scene on your tabletop?
