I just spent about an hour cutting out 27 asteroid terrain templates. Here is what 6 ft.² of asteroids looks like:
These new designs will also be available in a few days from the Resources section. Everything is designed to print on 8.5"X11"paper. I used glossy cardstock at my local office print store; all this cost me about $16 (that's a little over 10£ for you in the UK)
These templates come in the following sizes:
8"x8" 45° triangle
A standard, 4x6 table, would need all of this to obtain 25% coverage. In fact, since the Rulebook suggests 6"-12" per side, I'd say the 8"x10" templates are generally medium-sized. The other templates are small, but because of their dimensions, will still impact the game more often than not.
I also made some new planetoids, using NASA photos of various objects in the solar system. The 4" and 6" planetoids are on the table; the 8" one is hiding on the floor.
I hope to see some of you tomorrow!
