we all knew its Opaque but we are still waiting to hear if Mantic would make a clear version or not. Still no answer but alot of interest is building for a clear board.

Ok well that's not what you said... you said the question was whether the board was transparent.

I'm thinking about building a board on an old Xray light box so the light comes from beneath, and then add a couple of spotlights with 'black light' globes to make everything glow ;D

I like the idea of the light box, that would be awesome, even for a BB stadium as well.

I wish I had the technical savvy to hook something like that up, I'd love a board done like a disco dance floor!

Stayin' alive stayin' alive ah ah ah ah stayin' aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiveeeeeeeeee

Well, you can tell by the way I roll my dice,
I'm a Skaven man: they're evil mice.
Runnin' fast and blood's warm, They've been kicked around
Since they were born.
And now it's all right. it's ok.
And you may look the other way.
We can try to understand
Another players deaths effect on man.

Whether you're a linerat or whether you're a thrower,
You're stayin alive, stayin alive.
Feel the armour breakin and everybody shakin,
And were stayin alive, stayin alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin alive, stayin alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin alive.

Well now, I get low and I get high,
And if I can't get either, I really try.
Got the Orcidas logo on my shoes.
I'm a Skaven man and I just can't lose.
You know it's all right.its ok.
I'll live to see another day.
We can try to understand
Another players death's effect on man

Sorrt a little OT but was feeling creative :)

I've done a bit of investigation into the possibility and come up with two ways to create the effect. One would be a piece of cake to set up the hardware for (software is a little more complicated than the hardware), the other is more difficult both in hardware and software (but cheaper).

Honestly? Id probably just buy flashing xmas lights and install them into a board with a translucent surface above it.

Yeah, using LED strip lights was the easy hardware option. I would want software to control them though.
