June’s Model Terrain Company of the Month requires no introduction and with the release of 8th edition this month I thought the choice was all to clear. Games Workshop is the reason we are all in the hobby. Why we are members of 20 different Facebook groups and forums where we endlessly love to read about, write about, talk about and post pictures of the world they’ve created. I love that they have given me so many outlets inside the same hobby where I can express so many avenues of my creativity. Even more so that I get to share that with so many great people.
Like so many of us, my introduction to terrain came in old white dwarfs where I learned to make buildings from the Styrofoam that came in every squad box. I still remember when the new additions came out and we got all googly eyed at the new cardboard terrain. Then Games Workshop released a few books with even more ideas of how to tell a story on our table tops. I still have and reference these for ideas.
Games Workshop has come a long way in their model making and terrain. Not just what they have produced for us all to purchase in plastic and resin, but what and how they present it. Warhammer World is still on my bucket list and I hope one day to see it with my own eyes and personally thank Ray Dranfield and the crew for creating such awe inspiring works.
I thought it best to kick this whole thing off right and since we are a narrative based show, I’m going with a narrative theme. The Cadian Gate has fallen. A rift into the ether has torn the galaxy in two and the entire Imperium is exposed. The threat of chaos has suddenly and frighteningly become a very uncompromising reality to the average Imperial citizen. Defense Lines are being created, bolstered and re-bolstered. If you are to hold until re-enforcements arrive, you will need to stack up as much metal on metal as you can. Dig those trenches deep and stack those sandbags higher, because the flood of chaos is coming.
From the Wall of Martyrs to the humble Aegis line, Games Workshop has what you need to plan your defense. I have tons of this stuff and I keep adding more pieces to my collection.
We will have a Games Workshop terrain giveaway at the end of the month. The way to sign up is to like the NGC40k Podcast Facebook page or follow us on twitter @ngc40k.
