Ok as anyone who attends [elg] or 6s2hit will tell you i have been rattling on for months about building a wargames board, well yesterday i began the actual building.
I am starting at 4ft x 4ft as its mainly for warmachine so my plan was to get 6mm MDF cut into 1ft x 1ft squares so they could be modular in layout but also variable each time i play.

So i handed two sheets to the guy and explained the need for 1ft squares no problem mate he claims… well lets just say that the squares are about 11 and 3/4 inches square and that i got them half price because he may have made a mistake.
