That’s No Moon! Death Star Enters Orbit Around Tabletop Nation

September 25, 2012 by brennon

If any of you have been following Tabletop Nation on Facebook you might have spotted something mysterious. In anticipation of the X-Wing Miniatures Game by Fantasy Flight Games the folks there have worked day and night to bring you a rather large section of the Death Star!

Building The Death Star Demo Board: Stage One The Parts

This 4×4 board was created over two days using a vast array of different kits. Sets from Games Workshop, Mantic and even Micro Art Studio have been bought together to create all the different weapon and engineering parts of the Death Stars surface. There’s even a thermal exhaust port at the end of the trench ready for a well aimed shot!

Building The Death Star Demo Board: Stage Two the Layout

Painting was a simple but effective affair, making sure to give a finish that echoed the dark intent of the Death Star and made it look a little bit gritty and grimy. It certainly was a painstaking labour of love though and one that has paid off.

Building The Death Star Demo Board: Stage Three Ready to Paint

The board will be used for demoing the X-Wing miniatures game and so has been made with that in mind. There are plenty of flat areas to place your miniatures, making sure nothing impedes on the experience of dogfights around the mighty Death Star! It’s also going to be a major feature at Tabletop Nation, so make sure you don’t miss it when you go down for a visit!
