Games & Gears has launched their Kickstarter campaign for their Battle Boards terrain boards.
Those that were at GenCon and stopped by the Hawk Wargames booth saw the prototypes of these boards in action.

From the campaign:

Games & Gears has been working hard for the last year to put together a new battle boards project. We have worked closely with Cipher Studios, Soda Pop Miniatures, Ninja Division, and Hawk Wargames to create 5 bespoke high quality battle boards that we hope you will be able to game on very soon!

Each of the 5 themed boards is a 6′ x 4′ (approx 180cm x 120cm) gaming surface and are highly detailed and textured.

Each battle board comes in 2 foot square pieces and can be easily combined to create a diverse range of layouts, along with being easy to pack away and transport.

Games & Gears has also created a unique clipping system which will enable the battle boards to hold together firmly and securely. These clips are durable, tough and simple to use, allowing for easy mobility and ensuring the whole gaming surface is long lasting and hard wearing.

    Looks like this is going to do well, already well past funding target, but it not something that interests me. I play dropzone commander, and I can’t really see a demonstrable difference in finished game board between the Hawk wargames card tiles and these battleboards. The relief is so low (road/pavement) and the design is so generic and lacking in interesting one-off detail that its not really looking any different from a printed design.

    I get that they are looking at that mid-range market of much cheaper than something like a GW realm of battle board, and that it necessitates being practical about how much detail you can get on for the cost, but once you factor in having to paint the things its just not seeming like a worthwhile product for my collection.

      Personally I like it a lot more than gloss cardboard.
