Terrain for the New Year

So I to make some more terrain this year. It really is an aspect of the hobby that I enjoy and of course it adds immensly to the game. I don't host any games at home but I do intend to eventually. Therefore it is always good to have a nice selection to choose from.

As I mainly play Warmachine I will be making some pieces specific for that game. The one piece or series of pieces I guess is a trench network. I want the trench to be playable so I am planning on having gently sloping sides that lead up to the trench. I guess maybe that an embankment is a better term or rampart would be a more accurate description. I want to have the pieces movable so fitting them into the surface of a board just doesn't work. This is the best compromise that I could come up with.

Other pieces I am planning include a canal, a large hill, a 5th border legion watchtower and a bog. I am guessing these will keep me pretty busy for the start of the year. However I don't want to stop at just making the pieces. I want to cast them up in resin so that I don't have to make multiples of the same thing. Casting them up while expensive saves a lot of time.

  1. The casting idea is very clever - I'd not thought of that. You could even put them out through eBay for others to get good use out of too.

  3. Terrain...yea I have been collecting a few pieces here and there with the same intent. I have old pool table that needs a bit of use with some boards placed on it.

  4. I wish I had space in my apartment for a Pool Table, that would be awesome! I do intend eventually building a board thats foldable... eventually. I seem to find plenty of excuses not to have to.
