I recently attended Smogcon and met up with the bendyboards.co.uk crew of Lee and Mike. Thoroughly good people and, whether by their charm and salesmanship, my hobby spending weaknesses or the extreme excellence of their products I ended up going home with a wonderful Standard Bendyboard 3′ x 3′ table and a Model tray.
Both these products are exceptionally made. The Board has extended end zones for keeping cards, reference materials and ‘the dead pile”! It is sturdily hand crafted from good quality wood and feels robust and gamer proof while still being light and easily transportable. All the edges have been sanded and well finished. The fittings; hinges and handles are both functional and elegant. The Model tray has enough spaces for any 50ss crew with room for scheme markers and decks. All in all a very elegant way to transport my crew and accessories from the starting point to the bottom tables at tournaments.
While traveling to work the day after Smogcon I started hatching a plan to make my excellent board and model tray even more excellent. Sacrilege I hear you scream, but bear with me. My rail crew, fresh form their Golden Thrall Painting award at Smogcon, needed an environment to suit their basing and elevated position in the world!
