I have been wanting to build a game table for some time, but have never been comfortable enought with the "how to" part to take a real shot at it. A few years back I tried to do the whole "use the blue insulation foam, cover it with glue, cover it with sand, drybrush, flock, etc..." and it turned out terrible. The bad taste in my mouth from that effot made me reluctant to give it another go....After watching a few great videos which demonstrated gluing a citadel battlemat down as the gaming surface (credit to be added later) I got the idea for this table.
As I play boardgames more often than I play Warhammer(which is near never), I wanted the table to be usable for both. Someday I want to make a genuine "piece of furniture" game table, but this will have to do until then...
