Hi Wayne, saw your post. What fleet will you be running? i took another lok at BFG, looks like a good game.
I have a table sized relatively dark blue felt sheet (or that club black painted table would represent space well, I guess). Someone has suggested using the back of a GW Battlemat (black side). There is also 4x3 (only) sized foamboard available in black. There are a few pieces of different coloured felt and yellow might be good, with or without the cotton wool. I have some clay type rubble for asteroid belt already in small sheets (but real asteroids are like unshelled penuts not like sharp rocks because they are battered by debris). A 10 inch plastic football cut in half and painted up would make a great pair of large planets and a tennis ball sized one 2 moons!
I am ordering a small Necron fleet, as I like the ships. I also like the idea of the Rogue Trader Cruiser and 3 Escort ships.
A jump gate is easy to make (I made one similar to a 40K Large Blast painted on plastic). A pair of those could allow ships to leave the table and return later eg. after refuelling, enable reserves to come on to assist, or enable ships to jump to the other table end if pursued. I am also getting a Space Station Orbital Dock.
i have read the Basic and Advanced Rules and have the templates on USB for colour printing. Regards J
I have an Imperiial Fleet of around 1,400 points and a black mat 6' x 4'. Look forward to taking on your Necrons.
