Table size

What table size do you guys recomend, 300 point games in mind though largest would be 500.

Thanks,

Sherman.

I go with the standard 4'x4' with 12" deployment zones. Its huge but it gives you a lot of room to maneuver. I never liked using table edges to guard flanks so this works really well for me.
Sometimes I play all the Elves. Sometimes I play Eldar or IG. But between school and warhammer, how's a fella supposed to eat?

We've mostly been testing on 4x4s, though I saw Matt and Dave using a 4x6 yesterday - not sure if they were using the whole board or not though.

The standard size board will be 4x4. Dave and I played a 500 point game on a 6x4 table and it felt a little too big (the table that is, the game was done in less than 1.5 hours).

Just make sure there is a lot of cover.

On large boards it is a pain to scrounge up enough cover. My buddies and I pooled a few bucks and bought 3 or 4 boxes of Jenga. They work great. We painted them different colors and distressed them to make them look different for different types of covers.

I am currently outfitting my game room with 4X4's. This gives me plenty of room for my home games of sub 1000pt.
