    Thanks guys. Looks like finish building table 2 will be on hold for a bit due to playing another game on it right away.

    It’s great that you have enough space in your war room for not just one large customized table but actually two.  I wish we were all that lucky!  😄

    Out of curiosity, is Table 2 a duplicate of Table 1 or is it designed for a different game map?  It occurs to me that if the two tables are identical, this could allow you to experiment with some interesting house rules for concealed-unit / concealed-movement games in which the Axis players use one table and the Allies use the other table, with a screen between them and a referee serving as the go-between.

    Thats possible CWO for the split game.
    2nd table will be used for play testing same game, trying new house rules, playing a different game and teaching any new players. This way there’s no pressure for new players and can come back and play when we want.

    I am still hopin to set up a 3rd table because I have 2 other games I would like to set up and leave without taking down games all the time.

    Yes it is great to have the room. I did take down my 20 x 35 foot train layout to do this. I still could run tracks all the way around on outside of whole basement. I still have a main yard in small room. Tracks are still there in each end to come out of room.

    What really sucks but doesn’t now is that a friend showed me the 80’s Axis and Allies game 4 years ago, so I’ve only been playing 4 years now. I can’t believe I never came across this game ( 54 years old now ). I used to invent some tank battle games just putzin around. Now I can’t get enough of the Axis and Allies games.

    Plus also make a 3 x 6 foam board with complete scenery just like a train layout and have some kind of small battles over forts or bridges and forts using the axis and allies pieces. All ground and planes.

    Sorry Crus !!!

    A friend of mine who’s into model railroading once showed me some videos of model train layouts, and some of these included examples of military trains – railroad guns, tanks on flatbed cars and so forth.  He said that there are all kinds of specialized model train car types, for instance circus trains, and that military trains are one such specialty.  I don’t know much variety exists at the smaller scales like N or Z, however.

    Probably N scale would be best. You might have misunderstood what I meant by doing scenery like a train layout. I would build terrain for the game pieces on this 3 x 6 foam board with some buildings, trees, gulleys, airstrips,  bridges and other stuff and no trains. Sorry if you already know  what I meant. It be play like with miniatures. Another thought I had was build something like 8 x 15 table with terrain and play miniatures.

    I am glad that i’m not the only one who dreams of different ways to play with toys,  the saying is," growing old is compulsory, growing up is optional"…  😄  but also “the difference between the men and the boys is the price of their toys”  😄  I also dream of doing train sets, unfortunately the shed just ain’t big enough… 😞

    @dangermouse650:

    "the difference between the men and the boys is the price of their toys"Â

    And even among the men, there are differences that reflect how much space, manpower and disposable income they can invest in their “play trains”, as in the following example of an enthusiast for whom money is evidently no object:

    @SS:

    Heres a better pic.

    YG,  you got an idea where I can get a designed battle board  next to dice box printed ? Kinko’s ?
    Can design and save to file and maybe get it printed on styrene and then glue to wood board ?



  • Wow that’s a really nice table SS and the game itself looks awesome. 😄

    Hey SS,
    I’m not quite sure what you’re asking… but I myself don’t have any custom battleboards available for print. Below is a link to DK’s battle boards which are supurb, you can get those printed at Kinko’s on styrene or anything else as long as it sticks to wood.

    Yes thats what I’m talking about. Design my own Battle Boards save to file and then get printed. Just need it were its protected from finger print smears and any other stuff.

    Thank you YG and DK.
