I'm Back!!!

I'm back from the Big Apple!

Posts should recommence this week.  I've got a couple of things to post about.

The first is that I'm working on a gaming table.  The local GW store here in Delaware closed recently and I'm left with two choices.  I can either travel 45min to an hour to a store with basically no community, but a couple of gaming tables...  or I can build a table myself.

I did a little research and ended up deciding to use the same tables that Dropzone Games in Glen Burnie, MD uses.  The tables are pretty easy to work with.  You purchase a set of 4 legs for about $60 US.  You can order them from Lowes in the US or or wherever you can find them.  You then need to come up with a number of 2x4s and some 4'x6' plywood or MDF surfaces.  It supposedly takes about an hour to assemble once you have everything in hand.

Once assembled, I'll put together a series of 2'x2' segments to allow me to swap out and rearrange the table.  The first set will most likely be a sort of standard wilderness table with accompanying terrain.
