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.
In the spirit of ‘Model Terrain Company of the Month’, Mechanical Warhorse is giving a kit away to a lucky listener.
We all now how important terrain is to the game. It is the stage to the story we are trying to tell. It envelopes our models and entices our imagination as we play through a game. It has come to be known as the 3rd army. In the case of The Narrative Guys and myself, it is more like our 4th, 5th and 6th armies.
I’ve already taken one step by creating the Terrain Index on our website. I plan to make it better, more user friendly and I have a huge list of companies that need to be added.
I’ve decided I want to feature a model/terrain company every month to let you all know what is out there. Show you what cool stuff they have and what they are working on. Maybe even get some insight from the creators themselves.
Kicking it off is Horizon Creation 3D. Founded in 2013, Curtis has taken his 3D printing company from nothing and built it into a household name. He was so kind as to give us a Tech Terrain Kit to give away. Pictured here are more of his awesome tech kits, great for Tau terrain, infinity, hive cities, power plants, etc. Where ever your imagination takes you.
To win this kit, like our Facebook Page NGC40k Podcast or follow us on Twitter @ngc40k
I will be picking a winner the last week of April.
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.
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.
If you know of a company that belongs on this list, please email me at email@example.com
Ted from the Mob Rules podcast sent these party wagons to us. They are from Burn in Designs. These look super sweet and I can’t wait to assemble it. I may have to paint up some ninja turtle marines for it. Thanks Ted!
This one is for Mark O. I saw you had all that aquarium terrain on your table. To give you ideas I wanted to show you the alien terrain my friend made from bulk aquarium vegetation he purchased online, on the cheap. Hope this inspires you.
