Well I've finally done it!

I built myself a complete set off 6mm Space Hulk tiles and airlock doors.
And here they are...

Image

Construction was fairly simple, just granny grating cut to size and glued onto magnetic paper so I can play on a metal surface and things won't slide around.
The little square inset tiles are also made of magnetic paper and as the minis will also be based on the same stuff the whole thing should be pretty stable on the go.

Here's a few pics of the first mission layout to give you an idea what a game would look like.

The minis are place holders untill I recieve my order from Onslaught Miniatures who were kind enough to put together a custom Space hulk pack for me from there awesome Sisterhood and Legion lines.

As these pictures are all a little dark I decided to pop a tile and some doors into my mini lightbox for a clearer look.

Image

Now I still need to make some 3D flame tokens and find a nice way to make good looking magnetised blip counters that are easy to pick up and move around, any and all ideas are welcome.

Ok thats it for now, hopefully I'll have some pictures of the painted miniatures for you soon.

Cheers,
Stroezie.

Absolutely beautiful.

May I ask, what size of granny grating are you using (how many holes per inch)?

In relation to the blips, a hole punch to steel paper would result in a 6mm disc, one side of which you should be able to write on and this would still have enough strength to hold onto the magnetic paper. I guess you could paint both sides also.

For blips, try using push pin. Snip the actual pin off and glue to any spare metal sheet you have laying about. Paint the blip black then edge highlight with green and maybe (if you're fancy) a little round radar 'screen' on the top.

Lovely work so far though, looks great!

My thoughts for the blips, small wood cylinders (1/4"-1/2" tall?) with a small ring magnet glued to the bottom. You should be able to write/paint/print out numbers that would be readable inside the donut hole of the ring magnet, and keeping the number up off the actual tiles should reduce wear. Making them taller also makes it easier to pick them up.

Just a quick post to share the Space Hulk ladders, blips and fire counters I made.

Group shot

Image

Quick explanation.
Ladders are granny grating and those little spacer rings that come with my el cheapo tubes of superglue.
Blips are sewing pins pushed through a disk of magnetic paper and snipped off.
Fire markers are basically made completely out of hotglue using DmScotty's method.

And a little story for your enjoyment

Two troopers are sent out to investigate some ghostly blips on the scanners...

Image

OH DROKK!!! We've got bugs!!!
Image

Nuke'm from beond the airlock, its the only way to be sure.

Well thats all I got for you for now.
Cheers,
Stroezie.
