"Save up?" What is this "save up" of which you speak? Have you some ancient, ancestral knowledge of which we know not? Art thou truly the one of whom prophecy has spoken?
(all humor aside: nicely, crisply done flyer. I can't complain about the hand-done decals, them being about what I think I would be able to do myself. The Deathstrike missile ready to launch on the base is a particularly threatening addition, of which I approve.)
Ha, I happen to know Mossy that your painting skill is excellent, so I'm sure that you could do some brilliant stuff. I found the white background very unforgiving of mistakes, but I think I should have asked more advice from
@The Son of Horus
as to getting around that. I ended up simplifying the motifs a lot, which disappointed me a little. I'm glad you like the base, I had a lot of fun doing it!
The mats which are variously available are unfortunately not produced in Australia, meaning that I double the expense. I'm moving at the end of the year so I have to budget to grow my Guard, protect my Guard and look for these other side projects. Also, these mats tie into...
Great stuff here especially the flyer! Do you reckon the GW tables are worth it? I've been looking into that sector imperialis table but not sure cost wise.
Tables! I won't pass comment on the GW tables being worth it or not - I think that they are or are not depending on one's taste. For me, I like the hilly board a bit, but I think that it's not worth the price tag. I got mine fairly cheaply, but I don't think the opportunity to do so will ever come again. I really like the Sector Imperialis board, and I want another two tiles of it to half grind away into a 'sunken city' effect. The board is very complex and requires a dice box to play on, but that's not a bad thing really.
The market really is expanding though, and mats such as those from Frontline Gaming dot something and their European counterpart look excellent. Other alternatives include other tile systems like the Secret Weapon Tabletops, which look excellent (I haven't painted mine up yet).
