Modular Buildings overhanging table - Any foreseeable issues?
I've currently got my modulars on two IKEA Linnmon tables arranged in an L shape. Annoyingly, the tables are two studs shy of three 32x32 baseplates in depth, so in order to fit three baseplates on I'm planning on pulling one of the tables away from the wall by about 1cm and pushing the row of modulars (currently four plus the Sanctum Sanctorum, but there is room for one more) back so that they overhang the back of the table by two studs.
Now, I'm not expecting there to be any issues with this, but before I make it permanent are there any potential problems that I should take into account? I guess I'm just being paranoid that I'm opening myself up to damaging something, even though I don't see how (yet!)

Do you have a cat?
The table is also used for building so I dont really want to be covering the whole thing with plywood or card. Creating a lip at the back seems like the best idea as this will stop the table moving towards the wall and also support the overhanging baseplates.
However, I've been having a play around this afternoon and running at a depth of three baseplates puts anything built on them perilously close to the edge, especially as my plan is to (eventually!) have buildings either side of a road. So I may go with my original plan to run the layout with a depth of two 32x32 and one 32x24 baseplate, giving me some breathing room at the edge of the table. This does mean that I may have to create my own roads using 32x24 baseplates and tiles, especially if I want to put modulars on either side.
Any other suggestions?
Other options include creating my own roads by printing onto card or buying cheap, own brand road plates and cutting them down to size.
(But they are expensive and I still have a crapload of intersection plates.)
