New wargaming board is ready to go!Posted: February 11, 2015
It began life as a whiteboard …
… which I turned over so that I could use the MDF side of the board as the basis of my wargaming board. (The surface does not look very white due to the lighting in my toy/wargames room.)
As the frame of the whiteboard was not glued to the board (the board was slotted into groves in the frame) the whole thing was a bit too flexible for my liking. I therefore glued thin wooden beading to the edge of the MDF and the inside edge of the frame.
This had the effect of strengthening the board, making it more rigid, and ensuring a tight fit between the Hexon II terrain tiles and the edge of the wargaming board.
With luck I will feel well enough by the weekend to begin using my new wargaming board. In the meantime I can continue sorting out my 28/28mm-scale pre-painted Del Prado Napoleonic figures into units that I can begin basing.
