Continuing with our featured Model Terrain Company of the Month, we look at some of the futuristic city pieces that GameCraft Miniatures has to offer. From the high rises of downtown to the future orient district, there is plenty of room to create the scene you are looking for. Most of you know that I’m a fan of large terrain pieces, be they tall or real estate hogs. Any thing that breaks up the skyline. So you may have guessed my favorite structure is the sleek high rise. It is sure to grab some attention.
There is a lot of great terrain out there and plenty that would fill up an entire game board with a fantastic sci fi scenery with an old orient twist. These main center pieces from Gamecraft Miniatures are a great place to start to create that table.
Lastly, we all want to see buildings that are functional besides cool pieces on our table top. Gamecraft Miniatures offers modular stackable sets. You want a sniper team on the 7th floor, you want to send in squad after squad into close quarter melee and follow them every floor after dangerous floor to try and remove that threat, you can do it with these kits.
Welcome to July and a new Model Terrain Company of the Month. This month we are featuring GameCraft Miniatures. I stumbled across them while looking for terrain for Robotech and instantly saved their website to my terrain list as I discovered all the other items they had to offer.
One of my favorite concepts for a game is SpaceHulk or a game set in a spacefaring vessel. Gamecraft Miniatures ‘Spacecraft Interiors’ is perfect for that. It’s completely modular too! I see this easily replacing my cardboard tiles of my SpaceHulk game. Most of all I like the simplicity of it. Many companies prefill the interiors with beams and other things that don’t allow scatter terrain and imagination. With all the great companies out there producing work stations, computer panels, etc., with the Spacecraft Interiors terrain you can load it the way you want the rooms to look. Not every room is a random hallway. I’m picturing barracks chambers, weapons firing stations, mess halls and all the other areas that make up a ships interior. The Gamecraft Miniatures terrain gives you the freedom to create those places and the structure to keep it all tied together.

Peter, you haven’t posted in nearly three weeks, where on earth have you been?
Well it all started several months ago when I was planning the scenery for the 2017 Apock Luck series. This years theme was Apocalypse Warzone Valedor. I decided this was the year I would up my game and really hit it. I started pooling in terrain from all over, Gamecraft Miniatures, Horizon Creation 3D, Mechanical Warhorse, Terrainify, to name a few.
I had been posting a steady countdown to the event on the 1houranight facebook group. It drew a lot of attention. It came down to the wire at 2am the day of when I finally said what’s done has to be it.
Later that morning, nearly 60,000pts of points was on the board. Even Kenny from the Combat Phase podcast participated. It was glorious.
