When my second kid was born, I was forced to surrender to my wife's vision of our apartment. So, our former bedroom become a kids room, and my gaming room become a new bedroom.
And my 4x6 feet table had to move out.
So, I decided to go small and I started collecting some 6mm miniatures. Since 6mm is approximately one quarter of 1/72 and between 1/4 and 1/5 of 28mm, I decided to make 4'x6' table in 1/4 scale. Therefore, I took wood veneer sized to 1'x1,5' and covered it first with magnetic foil and then with paper with grass pattern. This way, my new table was born. And it is completely magnetized.
Now, I am basing all my 6mm models individually on small washers (washers M3 with 7mm outer diameter).
This allows me to use different movement trays for different games, and even to play skirmish games with individual figures since models based on washers are really stabile and fixed on magnetized table.
Finally, I have made a 1/4 scale inch meter, so that I do not need to calculate distances.
