This is incredible, the thought and work you've put in to bring all of this to life - I am so excited to see it happen (even if I may not be able to be there to see it this year).

I am building both a Snorkle Ball stadium AND a Giant slayers arena ... there is some problems getting it all on the table. Really the Arena was to go in the Dwarf quarter but ... My current plan is to make it the same size as the Snorkle Ball stadium ... so that they can be interchangeable. A Giant slaying event ... followed by a few games of snorkle Ball until the next Giant slaying event.

Re: BOYL 2017- A Tale of Two Cities...

Yeah, even though it's a massive table there are too many ideas to fit them all on! We're trying though. :)

Whilst development work goes ahead on the city I am writing up 'The Heldenhofen Gazette' which will detail all the events happening over the weekend. If you'd like to run something in the city and invite others to join in please let me have a short paragraph advertising it so I can put it in the gazette.

Started work on the buildings for Heldenhofen...

These are ripped from Townscapes, and the Coaching Inn and Townhouse from White Dwarf. If you'd like the laser cutter templates you can download them here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/h1h4m72ww20sl0b/Townscapes%20to%20cut%201.ai?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/5mgo3cehrzyn9hi/Townscapes%20to%20cut%202.ai?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/vmaqyysqlu3lqvn/Townscapes%20to%20cut%203.ai?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ihg4d1qo89q37c1/Townscapes%20to%20cut%204.ai?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/mq7ajqqtnfkeo4u/Townscapes%20to%20cut%205.ai?dl=0

They're illustrator and nested for 450x800mm sheets of 3mm MDF. There are unnecessary lines you may want to take out for speed of cutting, but in case you want to resize the buildings keeping a 3mm material width or use a thicker (or thinner!) material I have left all the boundary lines in place. I recommend downloading them if you want them as I can't guarantee how long they'll stay there.
