The week continues along. This has been a pretty good one, I must say. My new dice came in. So I’m happy about that. We’re also getting ever-closer to the weekend. I’m making plans not only for Saturday gaming, but hopefully a regular RP here at the office starting next week. So that should be fun. But, in the meantime, let’s get your gaming tables looking good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Sci-Fi Terrain Available From Battle Systems, and Volkano Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Ice Desert: Pwork Wargames Sci-Fi Mat Now Available, Frontier Tower Add-On First Look For Adventure Tiles on Kickstarter, Heroic Maps – Giant Maps: New Havenwater Now Available, Battle Systems Sci-Fi Terrain On Kickstarter, and Darkburg: Pwork Wargames Fantasy Gaming Mat Now Available.

Is anyone else’s week just racing by? It’s already Thursday! I… should probably think about making plans for the weekend. Maybe get some gaming done. I’ve got some prototypes of games I need to look over for reviews. Gotta polish up some review articles as well. It’s just all sorts of fun going on.

Anyway, as for right now, it’s time to make your gaming tables look as good as possible with some new terrain.

Today’s feature we have: Warsenal releases Thon Wave Two Terrain, Front Arc Launches Pre-painted Historical 15mm Wargaming Terrain Kickstarter, Infinity Engine Releases Molock Sphinx, and Final Days For Battle System Urban Apocalypse Terrain On Kickstarter

Terrain Corner

It’s Monday again, dear TGN readers. For some of you, it’s Labor Day (or Labour Day for you Canadians). So this is generally considered a “better Monday than most.” I, of course, am here in the office, searching for gaming news to share with you (and you damn-well better appreciate it! *shakes fist* 😛 ).

Anyway, seeing as it is Monday, that means it’s time for a Terrain Corner feature.

In today’s installment we have: Welcome September and new Releases From Escenografia Epsilon, Brigade Models Release More 6mm SF Desert Buildings, First teaser video of Post Apocalypse Terrain From Battle Systems, New Pwork Wargames Battleboard release: Industrial Ruins, New Heroic Maps release East Lynthorpe Farm – Summer & Winter, and SciFi Holo Torii and Noodle street shop available at Terrakami Games.

Friday Snippets

Friday is once again upon us, dear readers. Oh what a glorious day it is, indeed. The weekend stretches ahead of us with all sorts of possibilities. Hopefully those possibilities include gaming-related goodness. My D&D game last week included using Unseen Servants to use an ogre corpse like a marionette. … … I’ve… got a weird group.

Anyway, as is our custom, we’ve collected various bite-sized stories and present them to you now.

In this batch we’ve got: Another World Miniatures announces new Indiegogo campaign, New 10mm SdKfz 251/20 ‘Uhu’ (WWII German) from Minifigs, More codes in Khurasan’s re-release of Testudo ECW/TYW range, Celestial Knight by Kabuki Models: WIP, Kabuki Models’ original sculpture on sale, Dice Tower Award Nominations Posted, Battle Systems sneak peak of new terrain line, T1 Gaming Supplies Launch Event, Universal Adventures Adventure Module #3 Death Knell Delve Part I Now Available, Microworld Games 6mm Demons Released, Punkapocalyptic coming to Indiegogo on May 4th, Multiverse Gaming webstore is open, New 40mm bases from Dark Art Miniatures, and Dolmens and Dragons – An Entwickler Adventure from a Time before The War.

Battle Systems updates on post-Kickstarter progress

Battle Systems has posted up a preview shot of the derelict walls they’ve been working on since the end of their successful Kickstarter campaign.

Source

From the update:

So, here we are finally crawling to the top of the administration mountain and getting time to grab the camera for a few shots of the Derelict Walls. This is the first of quite a few updates over the next two months that will basically show you the development of the initial stages of the Fantasy Dungeon and all it’s lovely add-ons.

Battle Systems Gets Themselves a Fortress

Battle Systems is in their final 2 days on Kickstarter and they’re going out with a bang. They’re showing off their new Fortress terrain.

Source

From the campaign:

This was something we thought of doing before the KS started, but was holding back to see what you guys were asking for. A big gamble because that means if we need to make it, it would be a challenge to get it done in the timeline of the Kickstarter! Well it was asked for many times, but so were the Sewers and we worked hard getting those done, due to the sheer size of them. That left little time for the Fortress, but what the hell, you only live once, so we threw ourselves at it…

New Goals unlocked and Great Hall previewed by Battle Systems

Battle Systems keeps making their way through stretch goals over on their Fantasy Dungeon Terrain Kickstarter campaign.

Great Hall

From the campaign:

So you obviously really wanted that Double door and portcullis… of course you also get the struts and another really cool bookcase. Enough bookcases and you can have a library. :o)

New Add-ons available for Battle Systems Fantasy Terrain

Battle Systems unlocked a new add-on over in their Fantasy Dungeon Terrain Kickstarter.

Dimension Gate

From the update:

Yes, at 666 backers we unlocked the Dimension Gate, a vortex of flexibility that allows you not only to travel from one area to another in your Dungeons, but also adds the movable Idols that can be hidden around in various rooms. Finding these and placing them on Dimension Stone Stacks activates the gate.

Battle Systems unlocks the Mines of Minerva

Battle Systems is on quite a rise over on Kickstarter for their Fantasy Dungeons terrain. They’ve just unlocked the Mines of Minerva expansion.

From the campaign:

We have just unlocked our first Add-on Stretch Goal at £75K, and it’s a winner…

The Mines of Minerva are available to add to your pledge right now. We have made two add-ons for this and you can choose whichever suits you best.

Standard Mines…
This set gives you all the Mine components as per the Stretch Goal image. A great add-on that adds a whole new themed area to your terrain and really brings new flexibility to scenarios.

Battle Systems launches Fantasy Dungeon Terrain Kickstarter

Battle Systems has launched their Fantasy Dungeon Terrain Kickstarter campaign. They’re already 3x funded and then some, so check out the stretch goals and other extras.

Battle Systems

From the campaign:

Hello, we are Battle Systems and we make terrain for 28mm tabletop wargames.

Last year we launched our Sci-fi Modular Terrain right here on Kickstarter. It was very popular and has now been delivered to most of our backers.

Due to many requests we’ve now designed a line of fantasy terrain based on our modular design which is easy to assemble with no painting required. Over the last few months we have been teasing our followers on Facebook and our blog with sneak peeks of our prototypes and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

Our terrain is ideal for many game systems including Mordhiem, Wrath of Kings, Dungeon Saga, Super Dungeon Explore, Fanticide, Dark Age, Malifaux, Dungeon Quest and D&D amongst many others. It’s also ideal for sci-fi systems where you might encounter labyrinths and dungeon environments, and is completely compatible with our current sci-fi range.

Battle Systems updates their Shipping progress

Battle Systems lets us know how things are progressing since the completion of their Kickstarter campaign.

Shipping

From the update:

Well it’s been a very thumb twiddly time for you guys as you watch the ship travelling from port to port at between 20 – 25 mph. lol We’ve hardly had to look as you have been keeping everyone (including us) up to date with the progress. So thanks for all you navigators and radar operators :o)

Arrival date…

So all being good and well the ship should arrive in Felixstowe on the 27th July, not long now. It is about 1 day ahead of schedule, but we have no idea what that means or whether it loses a day in the final stretch, Phileas Fogg style. We have been told we will receive the stock at our distributors on 5th August after all the customs checks and signatures and we are planning to meet it there when it arrives.

Fantasy Terrain first look from Battle Systems

Battle Systems had their new Fantasy terrain for preview over at the UK Gamesday Expo. Here’s how it looked.

From the post:

What a first busy day at the show. Our voices are broke as usual, but we met loads of you good folks, backers and new, and generally had some proper gaming chat. Here are some quick snaps of the set ups for those that could not make it (near and far).

Over and out for now :o)

Battle Systems previews Infested Walls terrain

Battle Systems is showing off a preview shot of the Infested Walls terrain piece they’ve been working on.

From the preview:

We are showing a sneak peak of the Infested Walls Add-On from our resent KickStarter. Anyone who missed this can contact us as we have a small opportunity to include you as part of our post backer kit.

These walls will have varying degrees of infestation and integrate fully with the standard walls from the Stronghold or Hulk sets.

Battle Systems posts update about post-Kickstarter progress

Battle Systems gives us a look at the “whites” that they’re working on for their terrain system the successfully funded through Kickstarter.

Source

From the update:

Hi All,
Well we have been busy. Those of you who are backers will already know this with the KS automatic updates. However just a quick post to show you a sneak peak of the white copies we have had made.

These are the test tools (even thought we had already had test tools made) and they will make sure that everything fits together nicely before we go for the full manufacturing run.

We will post a full report on these over the next few weeks.

If anyone missed the KickStarter and wants to get in on the action there is a small window before we manufacture where we can add you to our Pledge Manager. If you are interested just email us direct on info@battlesystems.co.uk

Hope you all had a jolly nice Xmas and are ready for the new year… we certainly are :o)

Cheers

Colin

Final day for Battle Systems up on Kickstarter

Battle Systems has just a day left over on Kickstarter for their modular sci-fi terrain system. They’ve made it through a bunch of stretch goals, and probably will make it through some more before it’s over. So go check it out.

Source

From the post:

The Battle Systems Sci-fi Modular Terrain KS is in it’s final hours, and they just recently unlocked the uber cool Hanger Bay add on. Even with just over a day left they still another 7 stretch goals planned. Now is the time to jump in if you want some of this amazing terrain.

Final week for Battle Systems on Kickstarter

Battle Systems has a week left for their Sci-Fi modular terrain system. Check out the photos of them teamed up with the fellas from Alien Vs. Predator.

From the update:

Hey guys a very small update just to get you some pics. Been here now in Leamington-Spa for a couple of hours and played a few games on our Hulk style single level layout.

Here are a few pics of the fun and I can confirm that the two systems work very well together, already using those crates for cover and kicking over the those bunks.

Battle Systems previews more pieces for their Sci-Fi Modular Terrain Kickstarter

Battle Systems is showing off the screecaps of some new terrain pieces they’re working on for their Sci-Fi Modular Terrain Kickstarter project.

From the update:

With 10 more days to go, Battle Systems has unlocked two new toolings and has just posted a preview of the next three with only £9k left to unlock the next one.

Battle Systems posts up more stretch goals in Sci-Fi Terrain Kickstarter

Battle Systems has been blasting through stretch goals since the launch of their Sci-Fi terrain system Kickstarter. They’ve posted up some more that will surely be broken sometime soon.

Source

From the update:

We are working on the basis of height for the first two goals. To gain height you need a few basic components, converters, second level clips, gantries and railing. these will compliment the two floor tiles we gave in Stretch goal 6.

First up Stretch goal TEN & ELEVEN – 3 pairs of Converters and Clips, 2 Standard Gantries, 5 Spot Lights. The converters enable you to build sheer wall faces and consist of 12 pieces including all the clips. The standard Gantries are the staple of your walkways and are also the most flexible for creating shapes, (you can never have enough of these), finally are the lights, they add the details and the 3D element that really create the look of the set and bring it all to life, just like the Struts and Buttresses do for the walls.

Battle Systems funds, adds stretch goals and add-ons for Sci-Fi Terrain

Battle Systems has made it more than 2x funded already for their Sci-Fi Modular Terrain Kickstarter campaign. They’ve gone through some stretch goals and added some add-ons. Go check it out.

Source

From the campaign:

Floor tiles have arrived…

Grab them while they’re hot… well actually they are not going anywhere.

You were asking for them, so we have brought them forward ahead of schedule. You have two options. A small set that will just expand your floor and a full set that will open the board a lot. Now you are still going to need to fill it with Walls and stuff to pack them out, but these are all in the main sets. Also we will open up more add ons as we go and even upgrade some along the way. See next Stretch goal 5 for upgrade ;o) it’s just arrived while you were reading this.

Anyway here they are.

Battle Systems launches Sci-Fi Modular Terrain System Kickstarter

From the campaign:

Hello, we are Battle Systems and we make terrain for 28mm tabletop wargames.

We currently design and sell a downloadable sci-fi range which the customer constructs themselves. Although it is popular with hobbyists we have decided to make something easier for gamers who don’t have time to build our sets from scratch.

Our terrain is ideal for many game systems including Warhammer 40K, Infinity, Mercs, Zone Mortalis, War Path, Star Wars Minis, Deadzone and Pandora. It’s also ideal for non-sci-fi systems such as Achtung! Cthulhu 🙂

Battle Systems is showing off some preview shots of the terrain they’ll be looking to fund with their upcoming Kickstarter campaign.
