Mechanical Warhorse knows the companies in your miniatures games' world need to advertise, too. So they've created new Billboard terrain kits that are available now.

From the release:

The Mk2 billboard is a great addition to your terrain collection. This billboard kit
accomplishes several features we wanted keep from the original Mk1, blocks line
of sight, does not take up a lot of space, and features great artwork. However we
have added some upgrades. The first is easy assembly with minimal parts, the
other was to make the billboard more interactive. We added a catwalk to the top
for a five man squad, adding another function to the billboard.
The best part about our new billboard kit is that it comes with FREE downloadable artwork which you can get on our website.
