Thursday Terrain Corner

Well… I’m sick. Woke up this morning feeling worse than I went to bed last night. So, if you get a virus alert when you look at TGN today, just wipe it down with some Lysol and you’ll be fine. (ok, actually, if you get a virus alert when you open up TGN, lemme know because that means something’s seriously wrong O,o)
So, while I chug this orange juice, work on this bottle of Dayquil, and heat up another bowl of soup, you should check out these terrain articles.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Overpass Available From Battlefront, Heroic Maps – Modular Kit: Dry Ravine Bundle Now Available, New Pulp Era Caravan kit from Sally 4th, Brigade Models Releases New 6mm SF Buildings, and Heroic Maps – Drabdon City Sewer Now Available

Well, we knew it was inevitable. The weekend has come to an end and we’re back at the start of the work week. Though, at least for me, this is no ordinary work week. CMON Expo is this upcoming weekend. If you’ll be in the Atlanta area, you should stop by and say, “hi.”
But before we get to that, we still have our regularly-scheduled posts to make. That includes today’s Terrain Corner.

As such, we have: Sci-Fi Scenery Added to TerrainCrate Kickstarter, Large Desert Building Available From Battlefront, Terminus Segments modular mat and District 5 Catwalks Available From Micro Art Studio, Heroic Maps’ St Olfryc’s Priory Bundle Now Available, and Cyber City Game Mat Available From Pwork Wargame.

I hope you’re excited for the weekend. I’m excited for the weekend (ok, you know I’m always excited for the weekend).

The week continues to just crawl on by. Man, I’ve not felt a week has taken this long for quite a while. I feel like I should be typing up the Friday Snippets instead of the Thursday Terrain Corner. But here we are. What do you suppose the chances are that the weekend will be like that? Where Saturday afternoon I’ll be going, “Geeze! Isn’t it supposed to be Monday by now!?” Probably very low.

The days have circled around again and we find ourselves deposited in a Monday. I hope you had a good weekend. I spent Saturday playing Small World and Ascension with some friends.

Your battlefield may be scarred by huge craters left over from previous battles, preliminary bombardments, or undermining. These can pose serious problems for tanks, while offering sanctuary for advancing infantry.

This Battlefield is Shattered

Battlefront has a new Battlefield in a Box set available in their webshop. This one’s for Great War. It’s called Shattered Battlefield.

From the website:

Many battlefields had woods that were either utterly destroyed by shelling and fighting or cleared to provide a field of fire for machine-guns. These woods still provide some cover.

Battlefront features their Trenchline System Battlefield in a Box set

Battlefront knows that playing a Western-front WWI game wouldn’t be anything without trenches. As such, they’re coming out with their Trenchline System Battlefield in a Box set.

From the website:

Perhaps the most iconic symbol of World War I is the trench. Starting from simple slit trenches and developing into elaborate trench networks such as the Hindenburg Line, the science of entrenchment was king of the battlefield. As well as protecting the front line troops trenches link with the reserve area, allowing for reinforcements to get forward quickly and safely.

If there’s a fork in the river, you have to take it… look for a spoon and knife, too

The set also contains two (2) bags of static grass, Green Grass (GFS001) and Arid Grass (GFS004) to customize the pool edges and blend them to your games table or army theme.

Elven Tower Battlefield in a Box released

Elven Tower contentsGale Force 9 have released their Elven Tower terrain set.

From their announcement:

Gale Force Nine is pleased to present May’s final release in our line of Battlefield in a Box terrain sets, the much-anticipated Elven Tower. Battlefield in a Box is GF9’s fantastic-looking and affordable pre-painted terrain series for miniature wargaming. Each item is pre-painted and ready to go right out of the box; your tabletop battlefield will look great in no time. The sets are also designed so that ambitious modelers can embellish or even repaint the terrain to suit their needs.
 
Mysterious and beautiful Elven architecture has always been at the center of many great battles; whether it is the elves themselves defending their ancient lands or opposing forces warring to control these inscrutable structures. Elven Towers protect the lands of an ancient race. These elegant bastions are key defensive strong points against constant incursions by marauding forces. But defense is not the only purpose of these graceful spires. Many an Elven Wizard retreats to the sanctuary of these serene structures to further their studies, and in times of peril, these same wizards can turn the secrets of the tower’s magics to their advantage in its defense.

New Battlefield in a Box terrain release

Gale Force 9 have released a new Battlefield in a Box terrain release.

The Grand Vestibule

From their announcement:

Behold the faded majesty of The Grand Vestibule, the centerpiece of GF9’s Hall of Heroes collection for our Battlefield in a Box series of pre-painted terrain pieces. The Hall of Heroes series features circular ruins that may have once been part of a grand acropolis, tower or rotunda. These pieces look fantastic on their own, but together can be used to suggest a larger structure or multiple towers. These pieces are also perfect complements to our Gothic Ruins collection and together can create a war-ravaged cityscape or the remains of a mighty fortress.

Hall of Heroes: The Grand Vestibule is the massive ruined entrance section of a circular tower or acropolis. From end to end the remnant is just over 11 inches wide and is 10 inches high at its tallest point. The two story structure opens out onto a small balcony above the doorway. The balcony is about 3 ½ inches wide; perfect for models who demand a commanding view of the battlefield. The windows of the ruin are great for taking cover, while still affording defenders a wide field of fire.
