This is the start of my modular ice world tabletop. Since moving to Darwin it has taken me ages to find a joint that sells foam but at last I have found one.

I will be painting the base blue with a varnish to make it look slick the mountains will be snow covered and the square foam tile will be for a bunker/out post.

Still a long way to go but most of the hard work is done now.

Feel free to comment or add ides.

Just continue to the right and you will see some pics of the board so far.

Hey mate, is that the dense insulating foam? I'm in Darwin too and thought this stuff was non-existent up here.

Ps - host the pics on a site like photobucket, once the pics have uploaded to that site, just copy and paste the image code into your post here.

I was from Adelaide and I was using this blue foam which was really good. It took me 2 weeks to find this place calling nearly everyone off google to find them.

Its just the white foam you would get in normal packaging but in sheets.

Cost me $55 for a 8' x 4' sheet so wasn't too bad.

If you are after any the place is ICC on Albatros Winnellie, just after Mataram St on the left hand side coming from Palmerston. These guys will also cut it to your required size if needed.

They also have heaps of off cuts available to purchase fairly cheep.

@wearthefoxhat - I play 40k, Blood Bowl and some WFB, this board is going to be for 40k.
