I purchased most of what i need today and have started laying it all out and designing the darn thing. Its going to be pretty big, but hopefully awesome. heres a list of what im using so far(please comment on the materials as im not sure if its good or not).
random GI Joe weapons and the like
cat 5 cable
Imperial Sector box set
cardboard rectangle cut outs(see pic)
and as the base i have plexiglass(12 1/2 X 24). its sturdy im just not sure about glueing and paiting on it(thats where you come in lol)
cardboard stuff ^
hampster ball and GIJoe mortar that i will add bitz and wires to to make it look more like a laser
all the stuff. glass in the back left. i dont think im using it but it seems so perfect. so i have no base now
ill update as i put it together.
thanks in advance for any help
EDIT: HERE the link to the data sheet for a good picture of the defence laser.

Oh I seen the defence laser in WD a few weeks ago! awesome stuff Keep it going
Looks all good.
With the plexiglass, sand it with a rough sandpaper then a fine one. This will make glue stick (gives a texture that glue can bond into). It will also help paint to stick. Superglue or epoxy are probably the only things that will stick to it though. You could glue some carboard onto it and then work from that.
Good luck with this. Hope it turns out great.
HAMSTER BALLS! You've just inspired a gaming table, thanks
Great idea on using the hamster ball.
Thanks earl, ill try that. i bitz ordered 4 IG heavy weapons sprues for the TL AA guns and TL heavy bolters. i need to pic up some blue foam at a hardware store sometime today or tomorrow. my car broke down in the middle of the road today =( so everything is off for now. but ill begin assembly of the towers tonight.
do you think the plexiglass i have is to big? it seems a bit long but when i compare it with the hampster ball it seems decent enough. its 12 1/2 X 24 so i could cut it down a bit. seems like it will be massive sitting on a table.
Thanks for the info guys
