I am starting a 4 x 8 ft. board that is going to be made up of 2 x 2 ft. sections. I think that this is going to be a good Idea because I can start small and use the 4 x4 ft. when I get there to play kill team and small 40k games before I am finished with the whole thing! I think that this will work well do you guys think that it will? Or should I make the squares bigger or smaller?

Most people (and indeed the Rule Book Recommends) a 6 x 4 ft. table for a 40k gaming board.
If u put all ur city terrain for kill team on bases they are easily removed for a clear 40k gaming board.
If ur looking to make a proper gaming board by adding lakes or valleys etc u can always use the other side of the board.
Paint one side green or watever for 40k and paint the other side grey with roads etc for ur cityfight / kill teams. That way u get the best of both worlds without having to split up ur board into small sections that reduce battlefield dynamics.

Good advice from w00kie there.
We also use 2'x2' boards that can make up to 8'x4'.
Ours is green flocked on one side but is about to be grey painted on the other for Cityfight purposes.
If you make the boards any smaller they will move around too much but there is another way.
Have 3 2'x4' boards. You can lay 2 of them side by side for a 4'x4' board or add the third across the end for a 6'x4' board. You could even add another at the other end for an 8'x4' board.
To be honest, the only downside of using boards that are sized like this is that they help when measuring distances. You know each board is 24" so when you have a ranged shot to make it's quite easy to guess right.
However, unless you can make a full sized 6'x4' board, 2'x2' or 2'x4' is in my opinion the best way to go.
