Default How to make an easy playing field

Ok my friend and i are the only warhammer players in our area so we set out to make some playing boards because a table isn't every time.

All you need to make the field is palletes, cardboard, felt, and many staples

To get the palletes you can just go to the back of a big store and ask, and while getting the palletes you can also get the cardboard.
For the felt you can go to a tailors shop and buy it cheap

Once you get the materials all you have to do is lay the cardboard over the palletes and cut it down to size with scissors. once it fits start to staple the cardboard to the pallete. then lay the felt over the pallete make sure it hangs over the edges make cuts at the corners so that it folds then pull it under and staple underneath.

my friend and i have four of these two are green and two are sandish colors it looks really nice and i'll post some pictures for you guys later.

if you have any questions please ask.

For terrain we just bought fake plant and pipe cleaners. you just cut off the leaves and glued them to the pipecleaners real easy

For forests I use green felt. It is $1 for ten sheets, and you can cut them to be any shape. They might not look as good as plants, but my Kroot always get their weapons caught in fake tree limbs.
