|Laser Turret in Episode IV "A New Hope"|
|My assembled laser turrets in place of asteroids|
The turrets can be purchased from FAT Dragon Games. If you do not already have a Death Star mat the download file comes with Space Station Tiles, 3D Asteroids and the 3D Turrets all for $6.99. You can print it as many times as you need to make larger battlefields and replace ones that get worn over time.
Assembly was very easy.
1. I gathered the materials needed.
Styrene plastic card (Optional)
2. Print as many sheets as you need on a heavier card stock paper. The turrets print two to a page.
4. Fold and glue the turrets together. I was careful not to apply to much glue and make sure you pre-fold/crease all corners before applying any glue.
5. Once fully assembled I then glued them to the Styrene sheet and cut the base out to provide a stronger base that will not get bent up during storage of transport.

Whenplaying I also have a set of squares the same size as the turret bases. When a ship comes in contact with a turrets (treated like an asteroid for game purposes) I simply replace the turrets with the 2D square so the ship or template can be placed on top and not interfer with game play.
