Been working strictly on my Army,
but went ahead and bought a 6x4 board and braced it. Wondering where may one go to get some gameboard idea's...

Looking to make a custom one with Homemade Landscape...

Thanx to those who may reply.

Actually look online for some great ideas. The store Eastside Games and Cards have some really nice tables you can check them out and ask the owner. He made all of his tables.

There are several great websites that I draw my ideas from.

http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/ - this is probably the original. contains a lot of simple but effective board ideas.

http://www.ironhands.com/necro.htm - not particularly game board specific, but really fits the grim dark future style.

And the DakkaDakka forum has a ton of threads on peoples personal tables.

Personally though, I find a hand full of sand or coffee in a quart of paint to do the trick. It opens up the possibility to completely change your table with new terrain.

Take a look at the galeforce 9 custom boards. Tons of inspiration there...

Matt that stuff is amazing-thanx for the input,

Do you feel a fixed board where pieces are stationary is wise, or should I make it loose to rearange pieces...

I am looking at cities of death expansion it seems pretty amazing to me, was at the yotta looking at it pretty hard today...

My main rival will be my brother and his orcs,
We are trying to pick the right set up to build.

Problem with stationary boards is you get used to playing on it.

You will eventually learn the LOS spots and other advantages or disadvantages a stationary board has. A hill or two, a river is OK, but I would say 75%+ of the terrain should be movable.
