Thursday Terrain Corner
The week continues to just move right along. Apparently it’s not going fast for everyone, as our video guy has said he thought it was Thursday about 2 days ago. But hopefully your week isn’t dragging along like that. And hopefully you have a weekend full of gaming to look forward to. And, of course, when gaming, you want your table to look as good as possible. And that’s what we’re here to help with now.
In today’s Terrain Corner we have: Heroic Maps – The Silver Sword Pit-Fighting Club Now Available, Infinity-Engine Releases Dungeon Scenery Range, Arid Plain: Pwork Wargames Gaming Mat Now Available, and Maki Games Adds 3D Files To Modular Underground Project Kickstarter.
A 20 x 30 map depiciting an underground fighting club. The social area of the club is divided in two. On the left are the areas for the poorer clientele. A simple bar and tables of bookmakers, with standing space for spectactors to view the fight in the pit. On the right are areas for wealthier patrons. A bar and dining area, with seating for watching the combat. The large central fighting pit is surrounded by razor sharp silver swords. Behind the arena are holding areas for prisoners, slaves and gladiators, and even wild beasts, and finally a private office belonging to the owner.
Infinity Engine has created a whole range of great dungeon scatter scenery, doors, treasure, pits of fire and acid/bubbling lava and loads more.
I found that when I’m playing roleplaying games I really don’t have the time or cash to build one of those amazing fully built 3D model dungeons and for speed and ease of play drawing on a write-on/wipe-off surface is the quickest way to create a map as the players make there way through the adventure. I put a couple of my column models on the map as we played and it suddenly made the experience much more characterful, that’s when the idea of the this scenery set came about. I made plinths for the columns and that kept them stable, and worked on the whole range, I hope you love them as I do and find they add some extra character to your gaming sessions.
The Game Mat Arid Plain is a PVC or CLOTH made rollable terrain mat, ideal for wargames, in size 4×6’ (122x183cm), 4×4’ (122x122cm), 3×3’ (92x92cm), 3×6′ (92x183cm), representing the scenery of a dry rocky plain, a barren and desolate landscape created by time and severe weather.
The Wargame Mat Arid Plain offers the possibility of setting battles between armies of miniatures on a bare land, whose soil is strewn with crumbled stone debris and where life doesn’t seem to take root. The mat is a perfect fantasy setting for large armies game play, and also ideal for historical settings or science-fiction fights! Are you ready to battle?
You can choose Arid Plain printed on high quality PVC or on synthetic Cloth, its awesome graphic grants a wonderful and great-looking setting for your favourite wargames.
Probably the most important news for the campaign so far is that, after receiving so many requests for STL files, we have decided to make this project the first Maker-friendly hard plastic dungeon in the history of tabletop gaming. We decided to do this experiment to meet the requests of the growing DIY community in the world of tabletop games. The core box of the Oblivion Starter Set will be released only in plastic but we will release optional buys in STL format compatible with the plastic components. The optional components will enable our backers to expand their dungeon by printing additional floors and walls. They will also be able to create components of their own design to fit our plastic dungeon.
