Monday Terrain Corner

Well, they say that April showers bring May flowers. Well, it rained most of yesterday and it’s supposed to rain for most of today, too. It’s hard to think of a Sunday where it didn’t rain, actually. Ah well, it washes all the pollen out of the air, so I can’t really complain too much. Anyway, as it’s Monday, that means we’ve got a long week ahead of us until we get to the weekend again.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Buildings for Bolt Action From Sally 4th, Lifeless Land Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, and New Mechanicum Elevator Available From Tabletop Scenics.

Good thing we get this preview here for Fey from Z-Man Games.

New Bolt Action and Beyond the Gates Antares Releases Available From Warlord Games
