Thursday Terrain Corner

As I was expecting, Wednesday took its dear, sweet time. I remember looking at the clock after having done some proofing of a couple articles and working on some product sheets and going, "wait... it's only 10:30am? How!?!" Ah well, it did eventually end, and it included going to that Brazilian place I've mentioned before (Picanha forever!). So that brings us to Thursday, and with it being Thursday, we need to make your gaming tables look better.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Tree Trunks Available From Terrain Factory, Castle of the Holy Sands Available From Heroic Maps, The Lodestone Modular Magnetic Wargaming Tabletop Building Terrain Up On Kickstarter, New Reinforced Walls Available From Tabletop Scenics, and Darkburg Map Available From Pwork Wargame.

Tree Trunks Available From Terrain Factory

When you imagine an Ancient Forest, the path to Lorien, to Mirkwood or Yggdrasil, the trees are like columns of an outdoor cathedral. Ideal for speeder bikes and rebels to battle the imperial outpost on a forest moon.

Imagined for tabletop wargaming in 28mm and Built to stand 150mm tall, these ancient trees are scalable for a limitless number of settings. Great for Pathfinder, DnD, Warhammer Fantasy, Start Wars Legions, Middle Earth and so many more RPGs and Miniature games.

This is one sculpt. More variations may be available in the future if this does well. Please order only one if you want to print some. If you order extra, it will go to support further development.

Castle of the Holy Sands Available From Heroic Maps

Perched on a cliff that overlooks the desert lands to the west, the Castle of the Holy Sands was once the stronghold of an order of Paladins. The corruption of their leader by a demon led to in-fighting and then extinction. The ruins of the castle stand there to this day, outliving its builders by centuries.

A printable battlemap compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl game. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset.

Contents: A 20 x 30 map depicting the ruins of a large castle in a dry, arid, desert environment. Wide sandstone steps wind up the side of the castle, overlooked by high walls. The castle is entered via a ruined gatehouse, with an inner bailey surrounded by the remains of delapidated buildings, some with fine floors hinting at their previous glory. The castle is on a high cliff, although those willing to scale the cliffs will find the walls have collapsed in places, allowing entry that bypasses the gatehouse.

The Lodestone Modular Magnetic Wargaming Tabletop Building Terrain Up On Kickstarter

It’s simple: a base box with magnetic exteriors (skins), snap them together and you’ve got a Lodestone tabletop building.

That’s it! The base boxes and skins are already fully assembled, and with the cunning use of magnets there’s no need for drawn-out and fiddly construction. The skins are quick and easy to put together and take apart; once finished with, they can be flat-pack away and stored with maximum efficiency. As transforming one genre into another is effortless, you can be as flexible as you like with your gaming genre.

But is this enough to change the way we think of tabletop terrain? The three creators seem to think so and have been encouraged by the positive response to their Kickstarter campaign. “We came up with the idea after realising we had common frustrations about existing MDF terrain: the length of time it takes to build, the fiddly painting required and the amount of storage needed. We knew that these weren’t issues for some but recognised they were for many others. We hit on the idea of using magnets and after months of design and testing we were ready to launch on Kickstarter.” Nick Darkk

No lengthy construction, no gluing, easy storage, quick assembly and re-configuration. What’s not to love!
