Hi fellas new to the board (Just noticed it isnt actually English)

Well I hope that doesn't stop you guys helping me.

Basically I play Games Workshop, which in lamens terms means I play with little metal men on a table with other blokes...We drink beers while we play to make it more manly! :D

Anyway, I had an idea to make a baord and fit lots of lights in it, more acuratley white lEDs I am looking at, these will be things like street laps etc.

So has anyone got a good site I could visit that could help kick start my knowledge inot how I would go about doing this?

I know basisics like needing resistors etc. I jsut would like to knwo how I can patch this all up myself?

Thanks.

Theres a basic electricity guide in the mods section you might want to check out, I'm pretty sure there is also a led resistor counter somewhere on this site.

If you want to make a cool board do a multi layer plexi or lexan board and etch out the figures on each layer and then add different coloured leds to each layer to colour the etches.

Explanation of the idea:

Etched layers: Leds:
-__---_---__------ Green:
---_--___----__-- Red:
---_----_-------__ Blue:

This way you can make fex. a 4-layer board with illuminated graphics.
