I've been looking to get back into 40k recently. My army is sat on the shelf and I was bought the new rulebook recently so I figure it's time.

I also fancied having a table at home to play games on. Plenty of folks pop over for a game of Bloodbowl and I have an empty garage which I figure will make a great gaming room in summer but lack of time to build a decent table that I'd be happy with (I can't do anything by half measures!) I thought I'd look around at what was available and stumbled across these guys...

http://www.dragonartmodels.com/products ... ables.html

... The pictures were impressive. I exchanged emails about costs involved in detailed boards etc and was very impressed with the prompt replies, and to be honest, the price involved for the worksmanship and cost of materials seemed very reasonable, so I took a punt.

I have ordered a 3x4 folding table which will be painted in dark browns and scorched grass patches - not much greenery, suited directly for 40k. I have gone for this size so I can purchase a second one and make a full 6x4 table as long as I am happy with the end result. This table will be great for skirmish games and is nice and compact and at £89 including delivery I think it's a steal really. One edge of the table will be left without any specific detail so it can match up to a second one easily and the guy (Matt) guarantees to match them colour and finish wise.

I ordered a couple of days ago and he sent me this progress pic today. Just waiting for the glue to dry before sealing and starting paint. ETA on completion is the end of the week:

I'll pop up any further pictures I get.

Rather than spending days making a board that I'm happy with I though I would spend some time and effort making nice scenery instead, which appeals more to the hobbyist inside me!

I like the look of these Shep, it might tilt me more towards buying my own table at some point as these look to be a good space saver.

Indeed. I'm impressed with how this is looking. Some final detailing to be done, but the proof will be in the pudding so to speak. Should be delivered to me next Tuesday (I have a day off and have to wait in for a delivery anyway!).
