So Erik over at Tenkar’s Tavern had a really cool post about using grids or not for battle maps. And just by coincidence I was thinking along the same lines. And as the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
First is some ancient tiles I picked up way back when I was playing A D&D. I don’t even remember who made these.
You’ll notice that I like using miniatures from various sources and keeping with one inch squares can cause a few scaling problems. Is that supposed to a “large” creature?
Like I posted before, I really like the Heroscape terrain but if I have to travel around it gets to be a major pain in the ass to lug around that stuff.
My favorite alternative is use felt. Like I said over at the Tavern. It’s cheap. You don’t need any special tools to cut it. It comes in a variety of colors. It’s light weight and easy to carry to a gaming session.
Lastly, one of the handiest things I’ve purchased is the Savage Worlds templates from Litko.
So there you go some pretty pictures of gaming stuff.
