Welcome to a building workshop. I am attempting to build a 4' by 4' table for as cheap as possible.
As I continue my futuristic gaming board build for Killteam/Necromunda/Judge Dredd/Strontium/Infinity games, I realized I was lacking gantries and walkways. Gantries are the classic futuristic scenery, made famous in any action film that has a factory or warehouse scene. They are great terrain features as they help create height, additional access routes and deadly falls if you mess up.
As you can see, it is a cheap piece of tat, that if actually bought for a child would be broken within days or might not even start. It comes with a lot of different length pieces and even a bridge, not bad for $4. I then visited the gardening aisle and grabbed some cheap plastic mesh to act as the wire grates you normally find on these walkways.
With a plan in mind, I started cutting and gluing the first piece. Starting small I went with one of the orange sections and cut mesh to cover the base, then dabbing hot glue along the plastic I went about sticking the mesh down. Moments later I had a finished piece. To be honest it goes together pretty darn quick, which is great news for me as I hate hard projects. Better yet it looks pretty sweet. I will do a Youtube video of the rest of the pieces and then do a blog post about painting them so watch this space!
