Pages Update

If you my fellow Bloggers and loyal followers haven't already checked out the Major Factions page. I have added the a couple of the main factions.

I have also posted Admiral Sean Squires to the Historical Figures and Key Players in the Campaign page.

Now for a cool space pic of two galaxies in the process of colliding

Another cool pic, this one is of another collision of galaxies

Gaming Mat

Well back a few weeks ago I decided I will need a gaming mat for my Starship Combat to take place, instead of a plain table top. I went and priced some of the options available, both w/ hexes and unhexed.

Ultimately I went the DIY route and purchased a 4-1/4ft by 6ft piece of black vinyl. I then had one of my friends help me paint it via the toothbrush splatter method. I then used red, blue and white spray paints to create a couple nebulas and whatnot. After everything had dried I touched the mat up here and there.

Now on to the pics of the mat by itself and then with some ships and other stuff on it.
