After seeing the article on the LO E-Zine about movement trays, I decided to build my own, in a similar fashion, IE with spacers in between. Now my spacers are only in-between the ranks, but not between the columns Something like this..I decided to do it this way, because for the life of me, I couldn't get the rats to line up properly without some space in-between the ranks (stupid tails). So I decided to make it a uniform distance between the ranks. My roommate however brought up a point in that this could change the effectiveness of template weapons on the regiment, as they are not as tightly packed together. It also has the effect of extending the flank of the regiment.Code:##### ----- ##### ----- ##### ----- ##### ----- #####
I don't have specific numbers for how the overall size changed, but for spacers, I used 2 bamboo skewers (sp?) side by side, the same material was used for the edge.
My question is there any rules regarding how regiments must be ranked up, or for maximum spacing between bases? or anything regarding rules for movement trays? It's not my intent to cheat, just to get them ranked up properly, but I don't want to cheat my opponent.
If this is a problem, Would making a 5X5 grid on a spare piece of cardboard, and using that to measure template hits, and flank charges be a problem? or did I just waste several hours making some illegal movement trays?

As for using the trays in games, it completely depends on your opponent. I wouldn't care, and I know a lot of other casual players wouldn't mind, but some people are rather anal.
