Miniature Wargaming Table Solutions

Greetings!

My name is Philipp Preiser aka Tabletop-Lenny. I build wargaming terrain and miniature wargaming tables. The gaming tables are modular. They are divided in several segments depending on the complete size of the gaming table. You can assemble the modules in two different ways. 

For transport you have the possibility to combine the elements to get a handy case that is easy to carry and space-saving in storage. 

If you want to play a match of your favorite wargame or tabletop game you just have to unlock the fasteners and in a bunch of moments you get a stable gaming surface. 

I am a longtime wargamer starting with Warhammer Fantasy over 15 Years ago and used to play several different systems till now. So I am able to produce a table that is fitting to your requirements.

In the moment I work on a 4x6 table solution that is dividable into three parts which is the common size for a lot of wargames.

If you are interested in a gaming table? and/or you need a terrain piece or set?
Just get in contact via mail!

Best regards!

UPDATE: What is going on with the gaming tables?

MORE THAN EXPECTED! There is lots of work to do. First of all we want to say THANK YOU  to all interests. It is overwhelming to read your response on our products. We are working heavily to get our prototypes finished and optimized for their purpose. Lets look back and see what happened in 2012 so far:


We started with the 4x4 variant. This one is divided into 2 halfs and builds packed a nice & handy case. This variant is optimized for a table size up to 1,00 meter. Everything above is possible but unhandily and it will be more expensive to ship cross the ocean. So this solution is suitable for all who need a relatively small 4x4 gaming table. While producing the first folding or modular table, named the CLASSIC VARIANT, a few more different variants came up caused into requirements of gaming, storing and shipping.



After realizing what is possible with this solution we continue to develop another gaming table system that make bigger battlefields become reality. This PREMIUM VARIANT is designed for 4x6 tables for games similar to Warhammer Fantasy for example. With this circumstances in mind we come up with this new battlefield system that is divided into 6 parts and can be packed into 2 or 3 cases. You can use 4 parts to build a 4x4 table or take all 6 parts. You can lock all parts together to get a safe connection. The terrain surfaces from foam are also reversible. Next step of developing will be to invent a sub construction that makes the whole 4x6 table stable. So you can place it on smallest table or just use two axle stands. So there is some work to do cause I think it will be a great and essential feature! And we are hopefully on the right track!


Beside this two constructions we are developing a so called BASIC-VARIANT. The features of this version are focused on getting a custom gaming surface that is easy to storage and modular to use. This one is not as heavy because of using very light materials but you need a table to place your gaming surface on it. This solution is for all gamers suitable who are looking for a nice terrain surface for a reasonable price. Also handy and easy in storage.

That is our current state of work. If you are interested? Contact us via mail! And if you think this project needs some help? Link, like & spread the message! Thank you very much!

Best regards & stay tuned!

WIP NEWS: A 4x6 Miniature Wargaming Table

The new variant of 4x6 gaming tables is up to 90% ready. It is dividable in 6 parts and transportable in two handy cases.

This are the 6 elements that build the gaming table.

Here you can see me sanding and flattening hard foam elements to make them fit into the cases.

A terrain surface got structured and sanded. It is an airfield or concrete road in the middle of a desert.

That is the look after some quick layers of paint.

So stay tuned! This gaming table solution will be ready hopefully very soon.
You will get detailed information, video and pictures.

If you are interested?

THE 6X4 GAMING TABLE 2.0


Gaming tables must be easy. Easy to transport, easy to stock and easy to carry. First of all I have to say thank you to all people that are interested in my way of constructing a table. When it comes to wargaming a nice looking table is not a must but it makes the whole game play much more intersting. To run your games on a fantastic looking terrain board is obviously an awesome pleasure. If you want to play proper games of Warhammer Fantasy you need a straight table of 4 x 6 feet. That is important for the game mechanics and so for fair games. I started wargaming with Warhammer Fantasy and you will never forget a game on a small table against an army that is based on melee attacks. Especially if yours is focused on long range attacks. After a few games you will know why these rules are set. Within my experiments with several different table construction I made a lot of experiences - especially when it come to transport and shipping.



After thinking and digging for the right solution I am currently on the right track. Hopefully! The new table generation will be dividable into 6 parts building the gaming surface for your miniatures and terrain features.

You will get 2 transportable boxes, small and not so heavy. Set together it will build a complete 4 x 6 feet table. You can only use 4 segments to get a 4 x 4 if needed. Or you just looking for a 4 x 4 gaming table? This variant is also better with the new techniques.

I used a model for the new gaming table construction. Better test before build. You can see it on the first picture. After doing experiments with models I started to build in in real scale.  

GERMAN: Hier sieht man meine neuste Konstruktion. Das System für den Spieltisch wird grundlegend überarbeitet. Es gibt nun anstatt eines Tisches, der aus 3 Teilen besteht, eine Lösung, die in 6 Teile zerlegbar ist. Das ist leichter zu transportieren und noch platzsparender zu verstauen. Hier sieht man das Material und ein Arbeitsmodell.  
Es gibt bald mehr Infos zum Thema!

Best regards und bis die Tage!

WARGAMING TABLE FROM START TO FINISH

Here you can see a few step by step pictures of building a gaming table that is stable, easy to carry and awesome to play on. First of all we have to set up the circumstances. What size do you need? If you want a terrain surface or a set of terrain build by me we discuss what kind of scenery you are looking for and the dimensions of the whole project.   

After setting up where to go the work starts. You can choose a way to seal the surface. For example a clear varnish or a complete painting. If you are looking for something special? Feel free to ask!
Here you can see to examples of surfacing:


Afterwards I can start to construct your table. I use multiplex woods in a high quality that is stable and also not to heavy. 


After this work is done it comes to the sanding to get a proper surface for your painting. Sanding is the fitness part of the work and it makes a lot of mess. So I prefer to make it outside:

1x1 Meter Gaming Table for Freebooter´s Fate is on the bench

I just started to build a table for the Pirate Game aka Freebooter´s Fate. It will be 1 x 1 meter table dividable in two sides. The two separate modules are constructed like the table I built for the guys from DARK AGE. The terrain building will be documented here: CLICK

Here you see the two boxes which build the wargaming table or could be set together for transport. They are made out of stable birch and beech wood which is also not to heavy to carry. The next step is to integrate the terrain surfaces in the boxes.

German: Die hölzernen Teile des Spieltisches sind soweit fertg. Nun müssen die Geländeplatten intergriert werden und die Verschlüsse montiert werden.

German: Der nächste Tisch ist in Vorbereitung. Dieses Mal wird das Teil für das Spielsystem Freebooter´s Fate entworfen. Es wird wieder eine 1 mal 1 Meter Variante sein. Die Konstruktion ist mit dem Tisch für die Herren von DARK AGE identisch. Der Geländebau zum Spieltisch wird hier dokumentiert.

Stay tuned for more updates!
Best!
