That's why I bought one of these... a rubber ruler.
Seriously though, it's that time of year when school supplies are starting to pop up in stores and parents can see the light at the end of the Summer tunnel. You can find these more now than you can any other time of year.
If you use vehicles in your list you need one of these
If you have any vehicles these days and who doesn't, you really need to pick one of these up. I bought a pink one so nobody would steal it from me once they saw how well it worked.
It's never been easier to measure just how far it is around the corner of that building with one of these things. And it's not like you're going to get it wrong either, you'll get a perfect measurement each time.
You don't have to keep positioning your small ruler and adding up angles and such. It almost makes it more fun to run your tanks all over the place with complete disregard for your troop's safety.
The only other thing I'd say you need is one of these
No, not a Land Raider loaded with Terminators
A disembarkation template. The idea isn't mine and I've mentioned it before, but it's worth bringing up again. I saw it on The Black Parade a while back and when he revisited it for one of his vehicles. It has it's ups and downs as I found out, but is there anything cooler than this?
The two must have vehicle pieces for this Fall
So there you have it. A rubber ruler and a disembarkation template for your vehicles. I can't think of a reason to play without them honestly. Seriously though, I know there are other great things out there like these two, I just haven't found them yet. But when I do, you can bet that I'll share them just like I've done with these two gems.
