Hello to all
- Just saying hello - name is Paul and I live just outside Glasgow,
Scotland. I've played games for over twenty years now, favourites
being RPG, 25mm Ancients, 25mm massed fantasy. and 15mm Napoleonics.
Now that I have two children under three years old, I'm finding less
and less time to make it to my old club. Plus work is intruding even
more. So it looks as though I'll be expanding my solo interests for
the foreseeable future. I've just moved house, and the new place has a
huge brick-built garage that's just crying out to have a sandtable.
The plan is to build one that's 5 by 12 feet sometime in the summer.
My wife approves, since she is now able to get back into gardening, and
the deal is each to their own. I hate gardening, but I am very good at
killing plants, digging things up, chopping them down and generally
causing plant mayhem, which is good given the stuff that's been left
behind by the previous owners. So as long as I do some manual labour,
I get the time to play with my tiny wee men. Now all I need to do is
figure out how best to protect the whole thing from the Scottish
weather so that I and any visitors don't freeze to death while playing

basement game room when I came across this "blanket insulation"
It's regular fiberglass insulation, but it has a plastic/foil facing
on one side so you don't have to go through the mess of a stud wall
or drywall installation, and it will be easy to take down when you
You may also want to build up the floor a little, so you don't have
to stand on the cold concrete.
All the best!
