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.

We conclude our May celebration of model terrain with some more great kits by Mechanical Warhorse.
You’ve seen my posts on the pipeworks kits for our Mechanicum/Industrial district, they are coming along nicely. I wanted to show you some other great stuff and some items that are ahead of their time. Mechanical Warhorse has some great scatter terrain and table props that really help capture the battle on your table top. I’m talking about their com & watch towers, tanks traps and acrylic explosions, smoke and so much more.
Did I tell you how much I like their billboards? I have three of these kits and they are great for nearly any setting, badlands, city, etc. I’ve put them on the table at every Apoc Luck event I’ve run. They are just too damn cool not to take pictures of your models without these somewhere in the photo.
Preparing for 8th? You may want to pick up a few of these handy game pieces. Help you keep track of all those wounds your power figs have now. They have these in every size base too.
In the spirit of ‘Model Terrain Company of the Month’, and keeping with the Armageddon release Mechanical Warhorse is giving a double container kit away to a lucky listener. Great for creating a stable base for stacking containers as high as your needs take you.
Our own group is building a Mechanicum/Industrial district and I immediately thought of Mechanical Warhorse for my pipework kits. These kits are easy to assemble, look great on the table top and are very reasonably priced. The Narrative Guys have a table full of this terrain and it looks fantastic. Industrial, Imperial wastelands, ship interiors, the uses go on and on.

Armageddon is everywhere I look these days. Danger lurks around every corner and from distant platforms. Densely packed terrain with a strong industrial vibe really helps set the scene. A great way to create that is with containers, catwalks and gantries. Carlos is putting together some exciting combo sets to get you started.

Thank you Justin from Tucson for participating in our Rapidfire Giveaway. I’m sure we will see great pics of this glow in the dark Ghost Stone from Terrainify in use on the tabletop. While you’re at it, check out his band Apostles of Ale .
Thank you Terrainify for supplying a cool piece of terrain to give away on our show.
I’m hoping to have more events like this in the future from other great terrain companies out there. Until next time, have a great narrative game.
I used this video How to create rubble paste by EonsOfBattle for much of my base material. I had to scale it up a bit, but I think I have figured it out and it’s looking great. The idea was to create bases for those ruin corners that so many companies love to produce, but not attach them to the corners so you can change it up every time. I sized most of the pieces to the Urban FATMat.
Every battle has a story, every story has a stage and every scene requires spectacular terrain to help tell the tale.
Check out the newly added Terrain Index Tab. It is a compiled list of terrain by type from various companies to help gamers find just what they are looking for. I have a long list of companies to add yet. This is only the beginning.
