That sounds interesting. As a noob to board design, would I be foolish to try a prototype (to hand solder) without solder mask? The most tricky bit would be a HTSSOP surface mount package.

i.e. No solder mask a false economy for my first board, or worthwhile to get my hands dirty?

(I need another 15 or 16 boards once this is proven, and those I'd get done with solder mask and anything else to make them more professional)

For free, it's definitely worth it. Just make sure you don't have any fills around the pads or underneath components, give yourself clearances to work with and you will be a-ok.
