Basic board and minis for starship games

Today I built a simple hex board and tokens to play 5150 Fighter Command (and a couple of other starship games that I have not tried yet.) Later I might play these games in virtual tabletop software, as maneuvering in hex grids works well on them. However, I like to try and learn games on the table. This picture shows the board, overcrowded with all the tokens.

This is a closer picture showing the tokens in more detail. The ones that fit in a single hex are meant to represent single fighters. The others might be used for light or medium capital ships. Each one is identified by a letter and number.

That is all for now... hopefully I will be able to post some actual battles soon...
