Tiles made easy

Malifaux – Having cast a box full of cobblestone tiles I needed to find a way to mount them to something. My goal is to have 12"x12" sections that will create the downtown area. By keeping the buildings on this type grid I can insure the board doesn't get stale and will be easy to store.

My first thought was to use MDF board like I do for other buildings on a similar style. The issue with using MDF for myself is cutting it to the right dimensions. Not having easy access to a table saw is part of the issue. It seems that now matter how many times I measure and square of the MDF still doesn't match up exactly right.

Searching around for other options I found these. Using 12"x12" cork that is pre-cut makes mounting the floor tiles easy. My plan is to mount all the base tiles and then build up from there. Once the tiles are glued to each other and the cork they become very durable. The other bonus to using cork tiles is the protection offered to the surface you're setting them on. They also have a better grip so the terrain won't slide around or shift during a game.
