No place to play

If you've got nobody to play with I can't help.
I can, however, provide you with a little bit of evidence that even in a tiny apartment you can make space.

With a little bit of effort, very few tools, and some forethought you can have a quite passable table.

I started with a 1/4" x 4' x 4' square panel. Not being much of a carpenter its some cheap veneer to do the job framed by 1"x 3/4"x 4" (A theme methinks!!) wood trim. Apply countersunk 3/4" wood screws liberally.  Its mounted on two sawhorses. Quite literally this two pack.

So, What about terrain?
I chose to go with
A really convenient 4' x 8' game mat. I used to play a lot of 40k, so that was the standard size. 4'x4' is so much easier to play on...
For simplicity's sake all terrain is cut out of felt:
The forests (zoom in on it. really) specify the sort of terrain, and the bonuses they grant
Concealment, etc.  The Grey templates show the armor, and the damage per edge, in case someone wants to trash a building.

and it all folds up nice and neat.
If you look closely I even keep fancy blue felt for water should Warmachine players stop crying "water is unfair!" long enough.

This whole deal folds up into a 4'x4'x8" space that will fit behind a dresser or under a bed.

So it looks like you've got room to play.  What's the next excuse?
