As some of you know we moved our family to Belgium late summer last year after having lived in the Philippines for 6 years. There was a lot of renovation work to be done in our Belgian house so there was no time left to even think about wargaming until now. With 95% of the work done I have some time to myself and I made good use of it already. 🙂 I have just finished building my wargames table !!
It’s a modular table, meaning that it has 3 boards for a total size of 2.5m x 1.4m. If I want a smaller table I can use just 2, or even just 1 board and that will give me 1.4m x 1.4m and 1m x 1.4m respectively. My original plan was to have a 3m x 1.5m table but I just can’t fit that size into my workshop which is already full as you can see. My carpenter’s workbench doubles as the base for the wargames table. When not in use I can store the boards behind my wood storage rack on the left of the bottom picture and use my workbench for its original purpose which is to build furniture, my other hobby.
As you can see in the pictures I got “screwed” by NOCH, the manufacturer of the grass mats that I used. I bought two rolls with the same name and same bar code and yet there is a color difference between the rolls. The two outer boards were done from one roll, the inner board from the other roll. The difference is obvious.
What I missed most during these many months of forced absence from our hobby was painting so it is no surprise that one of the first things I did was set up my painting table and paint some figures.
I’m exited to have a place to wargame and paint again and I can’t wait to invite my wargaming buddies for a inaugural game! 🙂
