From their announcement:

Gale Force Nine is pleased to present February’s releases in our line of Battlefield in a Box terrain sets. Battlefield in a Box is GF9’s fantastic looking and affordable pre-painted terrain series for miniature wargaming. Each set is ready to use right out of the box and will make your tabletop battles look great. The sets are also designed so that ambitious modelers can embellish or even repaint the terrain to suit their needs.

Ponds contain two pre-painted pond terrain pieces as well as a small island terrain piece. These pieces are cast in a flexible material to withstand the rigors of gaming. One pond is 11 inches at its longest point and 9 inches wide. The other pond is 10 inches long and 7½ inches wide. The small isle is 4 inches long and 3 inches wide. Like most terrain pieces in our Essentials Range, the pre-painted pieces are un-flocked but the set comes with a small bag of Green Static Grass from the GF9 Hobby Scenics Range. This allows you to flock the terrain to your taste or to use different color from the Hobby Scenics Range match your gaming surface.

Also available this month are three ruined building pieces in our new Hall of Heroes collection. The Hall of Heroes series of terrain sets features circular ruins that may have once been part of a 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 remains of a mighty fortress.

The first three releases are The Gallery of Valour, which is one large half-circle ruined wall section, The Broken Facade which contains one larger two story ruin and a small ruined section, and Crumbling Remnants, which contain two ruined medium-sized wall sections. Look for more Hall of Heroes terrain releases in the months to come.

All of these new terrain pieces can be found in better hobby and game stores worldwide. These pieces will also be available via the Gale Force Nine online store on the weekend of February 4th. Each of these new terrain sets retail for $25 USD.

  • Looks very similar to their original Cryx battlefield box set without the round well things.

    These pieces would look nice on a lot of different tables, I’m sure.

      Looks very similar to their original Cryx battlefield box se

      That is where I recall it from!

      Excellent. I had many fun games of Warmachine around those ruins and now I can get them again.

      So sad I was never able to get my hands on a set of the Cryx terrain

        You might want to enlist a ninja come GenCon time. There’s usually one or two floating around there.

    I’m not interested in all the terrain pieces that GF9 has shown off lately… Only in most of them. 😉

    I quite like this accelerated release schedule for terrain. The prices are reasonable, the quality of their terrain I’ve previously bought is very good, and they’re line is usually readily available at my local shops. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

      Do you have any of their rivers?

      • Darsc Zacal

        No rivers. That’s the terrain piece(s) that I wasn’t terribly impressed with. From the pics I’ve seen of the ponds, they seem very similar to the rivers. I do have their ruined building sets, except for the very recent releases. I’d very much recommend them.

    These are nice pieces. We have a few sets of the older ones here at the shop where we play. I will end up picking these up to add to my collection.
