Monday Terrain Corner

It’s Monday. I hope your weekend was well spent. Here’s how I spent much of my weekend. Yes, there are plenty of mistakes that you can see even in that wide show. It’s been about 3 years since I painted anything, and before that, I wasn’t that great. But hey, they’re painted. It’s all about making your table look good. And having good terrain will also do that.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Amera Plastics Releases New 28mm styled North African Desert Building, Heroic Maps Celebrating 6 Months of their Patreon Map of the Month Club, and Dust Town Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame.

Thursday Terrain Corner

We’re just one week away.
A week away from what? My favorite day of the year, of course! I’ve already got one turkey. I’ll pick up another this weekend, along with a bunch of other stuff so I can make dinner for my friends when I go over there on Thursday. It should be a great time.

But before we get there, we need to get your gaming tables looking as good as your dining room tables (which is often the same table, just utilized at different times).

In today’s Terrain Corner we have: Heroic Maps – Valdisfjell Market Now Available, Amera Plastic Mouldings New Releases Posted, Sally 4th Fantasy Football Deals to celebrate Bloodbowls re-release, North Pass: Pwork Wargames Fantasy Gaming Mat Now Available, and Armorcast Holiday Sale for November Happening Now.

But that obviously means I missed yesterday’s Terrain Corner. Well, I wouldn’t want to deny you all the chance to spruce up your gaming tables. I also wouldn’t want to miss today’s Podcast Roundup, either. So I’ve combined them into the Podcast Corner for today.
