But, in the meantime, let's get your gaming tables looking good.

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* :P ).

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.

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.

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…

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.
