So after a few sessions I've realized our group would benefit from having a re-usable gridded battle map. What I am looking for is possibly a 30x30"-36x36" board. I've come to this measurement based on the following conditions. The maximum distance for a ranged weapon in the game is 60 yards. Each square on the grid will be 1" (equal to 2 yards in the game). Therefore the game battle map will need to be a minimum the maximum distance of a long ranged weapon (30x30" = 60 game yards across), but it would probably be nice to have a little breathing room as well. I would love to have a single square board that is laminated on top or will allow for the use of dry-erase markers. I have found http://www.gamingpaper.com
, which seems pretty good, is an awesome price, but isn't the most convenient of dimensions. I've thought of just going to a craft store, buying some vinyl sheet, making permanent marker grids and then using dry erase on top.
Anyone out there know of a good site that sells something I'm looking for at a decent price or know a great way to do it yourself? (P.S. this thread can hopefully lead to a sticky topic about battle map resources)
