Pretty cool. How'd you make the asteroids?

This is very cool, since it retains the original asteroid shapes on the board for determining movement and combat resolution. First 3D system I've seen that does that, and bonus for breaking down so easily. Kudos!!!

I use plasticcard and GW-flightstands for the bases. The magnetic solution is a combination of grommets and greenstuff. The asteroids are made of aluminum foil balls, which are (de)formed by different tools. After that a mixture of wood glue, sand & water finished the asteroids. Look here for an older WIP picture… (at this time without magnet). Sorry, my English is very bad ;)

Aluminum Foil makes a great aluminum asteroid! http://en.wikipedia....lende_meteorite  They are very easy to make and hold shape pretty well, are light weight and if too bent up can be replaced with a trip to Wal Mart or the local stop and rob.  I spayed mine black and dry brushed shades of gray.
