    Thanks for the shout-out chaps. I remember dungeon tiles and game boards made out of cereal boxes, painstakingly drawn character sheets and army rosters (in Biro) and our 40k ‘habs’ were spray painted plastic packaging from Easter Eggs. One summer Andrew and I took our combined experience of board and war gaming and played our own Mad Max inspired game using converted matchbox cars, tape measures and d6s, scribbling the rules down as we made them up.
