I'll be moving in about a year and I want to make a good Train set / Wargame table. Thought I'd get 2 folding 8 ft x 30 inch tables,but I'll need a board or foam insulation board sections to put on top of them. Any suggestions about material/thickness. I'm concerned about bringing it into the house / angle of hallway/ 2nd floor staircase and how my wife will dispose of it when I go to soldier collectors heaven.
have you thought about the Kallistra hex terrain it can be quickly boxed up in and stores very easy in its delivery boxes, I have looked into it and a 12 foot by 6 foot table needs six boxes it can be easily placed on a few picnic tables and you will have no problem with access, they have a website of the same name in the UK also check out the ease of setup on Youtube.
You can also get hills, roads and river to match
The wife can easily pack it up and add it to your coffin so that you can get a game in in the afterlife and she can reuse the tables for picnics/ crafting, so value for money
