That’s right a second hive ! I know i already have a modular gaming board i have been working on but i have a few bookcases going spare and spent many years dreaming of a board similar to this one below.
Now i have a chance to actually make something like this ! ? ! These are the bookcases in question, there are 2 back to back in the pic below. i could make another set like this with walkways spanning the 2 but i’m a little uncertain if it would be needed (too large ?) or even playable with the walkways spanning both towers, i could magnetise them but it would be a real pain to remove them all the time when playing so i probably wont for now.
The dimensions are as follows :
65 x 82.5 x 16 = H x W x D = Full Size
65 x 75 x 16 = H x W x D = Useable = 5/6 Floors at 10cm intervals
I know each floor is a little too far apart but i don’t have to drill any holes this way ! This does prove to be a problem for slanted walkways but not too much of a problem. I’ve got a little bit of work done on 1 of the sections which you can see below, the small sections of flooring will have a walkway or stairs leading up to them, the ones in the pic are just to give an idea of what i am aiming for.
After a little trial and error i have worked out the walkways/stairs need to be about 45 cm long to stop models sliding down them, which takes the walkway/stairs nearly to the end of the other side, the other bookcase has a back board which will have doorways cut out of it at the same height as each level to allow travel from one side to the other and be built up in a similar fashion. Finally a pic to show the required length of walkway. Thanks for looking, C&C welcome ! 🙂
