It's the perfect size for the amount of Warmachine/Hordes models that I would use in a tournament, and while you might think they'd slide around, they're heavy enough that they surprisingly don't move much. This will allow me to bring my army with me to each table and focus more on the game and spend less time moving the models in and out of my army case.

Some companies out there have their own display boards that you can purchase and put together, but I was able to put together this sucker for cheap. The secret? Bulletin board. That's right, I went to Wal-mart following the "Back-to-school Binge" and got a bulletin board for less than $5. I then picked up a thick sheet of floral styrofoam, cut it up with a knife, slapped it on with some spray adhesive (that I had left-over from making my easy-to-make templates), covered it all with joint compound, lathered on some glue, sand, paint, and flocking, and viola!

board. It's just a bulletin board!
It sounds like a lot of work, but the steps that took the longest (sand, flocking, paint) would take just as long if I had spent way more money on other products. No offense intended to those companies - I just found something I could make for less.
What do you think?
