Hi guys! I'm new to the game, only have the starter set, but I've ordered some more ships that will hopefully turn up soon
I made a space mat, by getting a big hubble telescope photo of a nebula, sizing it to the dimension of my gaming table, then using PosteRazor to cut it up into a PDF file of A4 pages. I printed it out, laminated, cut out, and taped together to make a spacey gaming table It's a bit glossier than I thought it would be, so it's hard to get photos without reflections showing, but it turned out all right.
I also printed, resized, posterazored and cut/taped a desert planet image I found on Google, to make a planet I can sit on the map as a backdrop piece, and also did the same thing with the Corellian Corvette piece on X-Wing Miniature Game's Board Game Geek pages. Love the Corvette!
I tried to host them on photobucket so I could display them here, but for some reason, photobucket is really buggy at the moment, so I've just linked to the images direct, from my star wars minis blog.
