Default Can someone design me a table?

Hey,
I was thinking of designing a battling table to verse my friends with. I have always wanted to make a table but have never been sure how to make it look. I use a static army and was hoping to make a table which i could play to my advantge. The table needs to be 4" x 4" but the rest is up to you.
Any design is a help to me. Thanks in advance...
Hawk.

Making a table to only to play to your advantage is very very sad and people will not like you for it.

I know you said you dont mind what you want but you wont like the board as much if some one does it for you.

Could you at least tell us what you want it to be like such as:

Snow
Grass
Lots of trees
City
Lava
etc.

Well what type of table I was looking for was sort of a grassy plain with some trenches. Maybe a few buildings.

Lol, sounds like my board but mines grey with patches of grass.

I have buildings on one side of my board going in about 15"

Then in the middle i have two.... hills if you like that are impassable and black like of site and then trees coming off of them, in the center i have no terrain so its kind of a no-mans-land.

Then on the other side of the board i have my trench which goes the full 4 foot and is zig-zagged so that it makes more seance (if some one came in your trench you wouldn't want them to have line of site of you)

Its fun to play on.

by the way its a 4 X 4 board.

Reaper i like the way your board sounds like....i might have to do something about it =P. Is it a fair board for all the armies you have played on it though? Because i wouldnt want one army having any advantage over the other which is very lame.

Looks good, might use it. If i do I probably won't use as many trees, but the general layout kicks ass.
