Hey guys,

I'm working on some gaming tables for a Flames of War tournament I'm running here at the factory this weekend. I've been taking photos all along the process, and I'm almost done.

Is there any interest here to see the principles/techniques behind making basic, modular terrain tournament tables? Or should I just stick to minis...?

Thanks smile.gif

Go for it....I would be interested in seeing the pics of your work. The club I'm in now just began work on 2 tables for Games Day Baltimore, and we'll be running a 40K table and Fantasy table...

OK, cool. I'll post up a "how to". They're flat tables with basic modular terrain on them. Nothing complicated or fancy, but they will look clean and tight.

I'll get to posting that over the next couple days. My tourney is this Saturday smile.gif

After much laboring, the tables and scatter terrain are done! I'll post pics over the next few days, and then back to painting Alpha Legion. Just committed myself to a Singapore 40K RTT in June, so I need to get crackin'!

Sorry for the delay, folks, it's been a crazy last couple weeks! smile.gif

Part I- Planning, Prep, and Sanding

I'm not going to repost all this, so check the blog out and tell me what you think. I'll get the second step (painting and finishing) up soon, and then I'll do a seperate entry for the terrain. None of this is specific to 15mm scale, so everything I mention is exactly what I would do for tables I intend my Alpha Legion and Death Korps to fight on.... smile.gif

Abso-bloody-lutely.

On a more serious note, I am looking for blueprints or general ideas on how to make a folding gaming table. Any input is greatly appreciated.

As half of my games take place at home where storage space is limited I also thought of a folding type terrain table.

Instead what I did is broke my table in two halves, 3' x 4' (together its 4' x 6'), with a simple latch on either side to lock both sides. This prevents accidental bumping and shifting.

I thought of placing a couple of hinges to where it folds but its easier and lighter to carry each half separate.

I used 1/4" particle board and 1x2 for the framing. This made a light weight table to carry but still firm at 3' x 4' size.

I went with a simple flat textured top. This has the advantage of easy storage, able to change the top by placing different gaming colored mats, and changing terrain features by using modular terrain pieces.

When I get a chance I will post some pics.
