I've been meaning to do this for a while, TFF have a combined "Stadium" thread where people can post pictures/link to their custom board threads. It's been a great source of inspiration to me, and I thought others might feel the same.

So in roughly chronological order, here are the custom stadiums I could find with links to their threads.

Phew, that's a lot of highly concentrated awesome in one spot!

My deepest apologies if I missed you board, I *think* I got them all. And now, let us look to the future! I can't wait to see what comes from the creative minds of the Ausbowl Community in the future!!

If you make a board, feel free to post a picture here along with a link to your own thread, so that anyone down the line can see your good works with ease.

Love it!

Now I have no BB commitments I may look at banging a pitch together. Have always wanted a custom pitch.

[quote=""Rabid_Bogscum""]wheres my bloody euc bowl board[/quote]

That didn't seem like it was worth including... it's just a boring version of my other, cooler boards after all :-D

Adding a few new ones that I thought of but missed due to their thread title.

kanga has a pitch that isn't on your list. I'll see if I can find a pic of it from my SSB photos.

Damn, this thread is too good.

Out of curiosity. Whats it like playing on a 40mm board? Does it feel more epic?

Love this thread, if I wasn't inspired enough from seeing Virral's other work, this has me chomping at the bit to create a few pitches....

Now where to start, Norse, Dwarf (with a twist), or Khemri? (Have good mental images of how these might look so far).

I love it, but some people aren't so thrilled because you have to play sideways. The extra space is fantastic though.

wouldn't 40mm give you enough room to lay a big guy down?

depends how big, the trend of the minis is pushing for bigger and bigger, and we might need a 50mm some day.

Love it guys - you make me want to be more handsy with my board. Sadly I am decrepit in the region of actual carpenter and buildery.

I love the cthulu board - would love to play on it - it'd be epic.

Nice work Virral, some amazing boards out there.

Seriously, don't let that stop you. Just because you won't be producing beautiful inlaid rosewood jewellery boxes doesn't mean you're incapable of banging a servicable box together.

My original board is infinitely rougher than my later efforts, as I taught myself new tricks (like gee, I don't know... sanding stuff that I've cut!) It's a learning curve, but literally anyone with some plywood, a saw and a drill can produce a box/frame for a custom board.

For me it's like painting mini's... I used to assume I couldn't do that either.
