About the Project

So I need a gaming table for my hobby. Mainly Star Wars: Legion. So I tinkered with CAD and came up with hex shaped pieces. 60cm across, 30cm on each side. The parts can be used to create one 180x104cm table or a 90x104.

Currently I’m stuck at the point on “what to make of it”. The modularity should be key but I lack the “vision” of what design I could use. To get the most use out of the project later (even with other games) the design should be generic. So maybe grass and sand?

Ideas are very welcome!

So I finished’ish the substructure and did a testfit.

It’s to big. I have huge gaps. Not sure how to handle that… it’s 180cmx105cm

(wow, where did I read that again? XD)

So I finally got around to do something more for this table. And what is essential for a civilisation? Roads!

Sadly I’m seeing warping. I hope this will “even out” with enough pressure during drying. We will see 😉

Onward! To glory!

I’ve cleaned up part of my garage and am now able to go in and work properly. The pictures show only a snapshot. Need to get rid of some more junk and then I can put up the board and have it standing there!
