Thanks. We are a Groupe of 7-11 players that have 4-5 playing weekends a year. So then we need a few tabels. I also like making stuff so that's the main reason. The plastic kits are very nice but scratch building has even bigger rom for kreativeti.I already liked the first table very much and your new gaming table was great again. What I also like is that self-construction still plays an important role for you and your group, even with and despite the well-made and nice DU Zone Mortalis Terrain.
If I saw that correctly, you built your wall from a wooden frame with MDF panels. Did that have special reasons? I ask because I bought 5 cm thick Styrodur (XPS) for my own wall. The height should be around 40 to 50 cm and I hope and expect Styrodur to be stable enough for this.
Then I have questions about playability, please. I see two or three transitions depending on whether it is a dome wall or a city wall. How does that work in games and do you use special rules for this? Among other things, I ask myself whether the passages are not blocked too easily, or whether miniatures that ignore terrain could have too great an advantage?
As for the new table. I build on it as we go and always try to paint new editing to the table before I build more. So I don't know the end result yet. You question about playabilety. Yes there are som strong kill points but remember there is many fighters whit infiltrate. There is also terretories that's gives this ability. Also reenforcement can come from all table edges. And you can also choose to have the deployment area so that you can start on both sides of the wall. The wall can also be removed. So I don't have to use it. This are the walk around the potential problem you described. But yes you do have a point. But we have other normal tabels. And I wanted this to feel different and it does. The other once are easyer to use sure. In a way I wanted to build some thing narrative. I want a hab/marked area on one side and a old industrial wasteland on the other side. So that's what im going for. But I may but in more openings we will see has the board grows
As for models that ignore terrain and questions like that. The awnser is it has not happened yet. But I think it will be OK. For extra rules we but terminals in the big pipe on top and it's suppose to be a zip line like in the computer game. It's a full action to use it. Also we let people whit Tunnel and simular terretorier and effect put in people from the middle of the table. Put from the middle of the big pipes then.
As for material. I think you will be OK. The stuff I used is soft u can cut it whit a knife. But it does become more stable the more pain, glue and stuff I put on. Also I does have a thick wooden frame and that helps. The hight og the wall is roughly 24' and the horizontal part of the table is 48' pluss the frame of the vertical wall. And I think that'd rougly 10 cm.
Thanks for the praise and hope I answered you questions.
