Default Hive ship table

I was cruising through my bookmarks and came across this on one of the forums I have saved I know a few gamers here play nids so I thought I'd give you guys some inspiration

Oh huzzahage, that is incredible... I've always wanted a multiple-tier table.

Ew, that's awesome.


Can you imagine fighting inside of a gigantic creature floating in space?

That's awesome, however I'm not too sure about how playable it is. It's got three differently elevated levels, with almost no sign of visible ascent onto the three platforms (some sort of ladders, stairs, etc), so it'd be hard to get up to the top for any player. Any army up at the top could just sit there and shoot for 6 turns without much of any unit making it up to counter them.

Looks more like just a show piece. Cool. But not too good for fair games.

Look again; it's not that fair, but you can get up and down on the left and right flanks of the board; on the right you can see Marines moving down from third to second tier, on the left Tyranids moving up.

That said, Marines vs. footslogging Orks; park a Crusader on each staircase and smuggly say "I win". More than likely the 10-16 shots from each will decimate any squad with anti-tank power that even gets close enough to krak them...

Nice terrain. But still, I have to say it is more for show than anything. any low save army will have diffriculties in this as there are no cover at all.

It is really nice, but it doesn't look very playable to me :

Wow, that's amazing. So much detail put into one board. That would have taken alot of time.
