Industrial Terrain

Necromunda is all over the place.  Games Workshop has done an incredible job reintroducing this game to their fans.  The setting has a strong hive city industrial feel and has people searching for some unique bits and boards.

There is some great terrain out there for it and Wargames Tournaments has two differing terrain sets for this along with all the goodies to make it pop.  When I first found them I was blown away by the industrial board and I knew I wanted that to be one that we picked up during our store terrain drive.

The Industrial Set.  I mean look at it, this thing is cool.  These give me so many ideas, including having them fighting across the roof top of a large factory.  Put some tubing up the center of the towers and you’ve created smoke stacks with overhead gantries and service platforms.

Since then they have expanded this to include other pieces that you could easily tie into this set have stand on it’s own.

Wargames Tournaments has even added an entirely new set called the Slot and Stack industrial set.  The cool thing about this set is that it is modular, meaning you can configure it in as many ways as you can dream up.  It is also designed to be taken apart after each game for easy storage.  The pieces of the kit have less removed surface area, making them stronger for wear and tear of assembling and disassembling.  The burn in designs mean it’s not sacrificing detail to achieve that balance.

What good is a industrial complex without a crane.  How bout a really big crane!

Massive-crane-deal-1-720x478

I so want this thing.

And of course a board is never complete without scatter terrain, the spice of the gaming board.

One last thing I want to mention about Wargames Tournaments Industrial Terrain is they have bits for you to make your own.  Various doors, window, ports, and other sorts of goodies.  Let your creativity expand your terrain and the Industrial bits help tie it all together.

I have a lot more from Wargames Tournaments to share throughout the month, so stay tuned.

A Brand New Year of Terrain

Hey everyone, we are back with a brand new year of Model Terrain Company of the Month.  I still have a long list of companies I want to introduce you to.

January’s Terrain Company of the Month is Wargames Tournaments.  In our shows humble beginnings I mentioned that I organized a terrain fund to get new kits into our friendly local gaming store.  Wargames Tournaments was where I gladly invested those dollars for the local gamers.  They have a great selection of terrain and the themes are expansive enough to easily fill out a 4×6′ table.  Their kits are all mdf, so you know they will hold up to even some rigorous wear and tear that we gamers can dish out.

The first set that caught my attention was their Space Elf terrain.  So when it came to picking out a table worth of kits, this was at the top of my list for something unique.  Just look at these temples.

The detail that Wargames Tournaments put into these kits is awesome.  If you are looking to get terrain to create an Eldar Crone world, look no further.

Whether your getting your force down to the planet through a void gate or the old fashion landing craft, Wargames Tournaments has you covered.

And don’t forget to protect your forces when you get there with custom shield generators.

Every space elf has an darker sibling.  Fight them in the pits of Commorragh to show them which path is the true path.

Drop the Base

We are back again to cover more from Systema Gaming.  In this article it’s all about that base.  Base – O is Systema Gamings other great terrain series.  They sent me a few of these kits to give away to some lucky listeners, so stay to the end to find out how you can win some sweet kits.

I really like the look of the Base-O series.  It gives me a lot of creative ideas on how to use them, deep bug outpost, scientific research facility, warzone medical station, mining facility to name a few.

Let’s take a closer look.  They have some great buildings in this series, to many to show them all.  Like the Futura City series, these are stackable and adjustable.  These are high quality mdf kits.  I’ve seen the kits close up and now I want to see a Base-O on my table in future narrative games.

Looking for other building options, go to Systema Gaming and check out the different combo ideas they have put together.

 

What would an outpost be without accessories?

Command centers, generators, laser barriers and more, these accessories are just plain cool.

I won’t stop there.  Let’s spice up the exteriors that make staking the kits more exciting.  As I say in the Apoc Luck, Go Big or Go Home and these extras allow you to go big and look good doing it.  Walkways, storage tanks, helipads and so much more.

 

Mdf terrain has come along way and Systema Gaming is one of the few on the leading edge.

You add these kits to a collection of kits I’ve shown you in previous months and you would be the envy of your gaming neighborhood.

October is out with a Bang!

4bot-Industries, our October Model Terrain Company of the Month has passed on some fantastic news about a Kickstarter they are launching soon.  They will have base sets with extensive add-on opportunities available.  Check out this HAB set that will be part of the Kickstarter.  This is 3d printed.  You can purchase the 3d files themselves allowing you to print them yourself.

23004397_873829316100031_4743696707632831076_o

The potential for this is massive.  So many ideas already forming in my head for scenarios.  I could see this easily being useful for creating the interior of a ship.  Then to complete the stage, put pipeworks, vessel load bearing structure beams and other things between the hallways.  This set is going to be rockin’!

They are also adding to their product line an interlocking system called 4B-LOC.  4bot-Industries stated it will allow stable multi-layer designs.  Check out those stairs and that upper / lower deck set up.  I can’t express it enough, the potential for this is massive.  This too is 3d printed with much of it available in casting molds as well.  So buy the files or buy the molds, the board you can create is only limited by your imagination.

 

This is new territory for 4bot-Industries and they are nailing it.

As soon as the Kickstarter date is set, I’ll pass that information along.

4bot for all you AoS players

We are back with another spotlight on our Model Terrain Company of the Month, 4bot-industries.  Again, 4bot-industries is unique in that they sell you the molds and you make the terrain yourself.  You can make as much as you want of a given piece.  No more purchasing a dozen kits to get an individual piece to create the terrain piece you dreamed up.  Simply get the mold with that bit and cast as many as you need.

Their Tudor City Builder collection is perfect for creating that little hamlet.  It would be great for you Age of Sigmar players and I could see this being used in an agri world in 40k.  Why stop at a hamlet?  You have the molds, create your own village.  Their is enough variety in the Tudor City Builder collection to imagine up dozens of different structures.

Stucco, stone, wood and more.  The molds by 4bot-industries will have your imagination running wild with what you can create.  I’m already dreaming up ideas of how I could combine these with the other molds from the cavern and dungeon series.

Go check out 4bot-industries has a ton more to offer and I’ll touch on them several more times this month.  Follow them on Facebook at 4bot-industries.

Something Unique this Month

We are back again with the Model Terrain Company of the Month.  This time I’m going to show you something unique I found out there on the interwebs.  4bot-industries is a terrain company like no other.  Most companies sell you the terrain that we all love and crave more of for our tables and they do some of that too.  4bot-industries takes it one step farther and sells you the molds to make your own terrain.

Why is selling the mold good?  Then I have to make it myself, ugh!  You bet, but casting isn’t as hard as you think.  Besides, it’s a very useful skill to pick up for a multiple of hobby related reasons.

Ever want to make that dream board full of character, but realized to get there you would have to purchase hundreds of something at a premium.  Now you can make it yourself in whatever quantity you need.

So let’s get into some of what 4bot-industries has to offer.  Space Hulk was their gateway into the hobby, same as mine, let’s touch on a bit of that first then.  Corridors, caverns, tunnels, you name it and Genestealers could be lingering around every corner.

Spacecraft or scifi base tunnels, they have a lot of variety.  4bot-industries has different types of grated floors available, including damaged floors.  They also have many wall section styles, doors, hatches, vents, you name it.

4bot-industries also has an excellent variety of cavern and dungeon sets.  Pits, pools, walls and even alien infestation pieces.  My mind was racing with potential uses and boards I wanted to build.  The scenarios that you could create using these is endless.

 

Go check out 4bot-industries has a ton more to offer and I’ll touch on them several more times this month.  Follow them on Facebook at 4bot-industries.

Late September Closer

Hey Listeners,

I wanted to get one more blast out for Death Ray Designs before starting our October.  Last year David, Matt, Ted and I ran the Titanicus events at Adepticon.  They were a lot of fun and I look forward to helping out next year.  I’m always one for trying to create something new and with that I sought out Death Ray Designs help.  I saw there Rapid Vanguard set and I was blown away.  It reminded me of the classic Dawn of War stuff and it is still a must have set for me.

This set is as good as it looks and is easy to assemble.

After seeing it, it gave me an idea for Adepticon.  Let’s make it Bigger!  I asked if they could do it and they more than met my expectations.

Then while I was at Adepticon I went to the Death Ray Design booth to personally thank them for creating these to the scale I was hoping for.  They were as nice in person as they were through our email conversations.

Another series that truly grabbed my attention, the Rust Pointe series.  Shanty town with all the fixins.  My mind immediately went back to the Kastorel Novem board I wanted to build.   I think these kits would really help take my idea from concept to reality.

The Rapid Vanguard and Rust Pointe series are top notch.

Death Ray Designs is continuously creating new top notch kits and collections.  I’m certain they have something to make your table pop.

Out of this World

Hey listeners, we are back with more from Death Ray Designs, our Model Terrain Company of the Month.

One of the hardest things to find is quality alien terrain.  I’m not talking about any old alien planet terrain.  I’m talking about terrain pieces that fit our favorite Xenos 40k armies.  Not every planet that you fight over will be a former Imperial world.  The Orks don’t care who’s planet it is.  The Tau will take it for the greater good.  And so on.

There are endless reasons a battle could be taking place on a world other than one under the light of the Imperium of Man.  This is even more so as a narrative player.  As an example, what if you are like Mark, where his house represents his home planet, JYLN-55.  What if you’re a filthy. . . cough cough. . . I mean a die hard Xenos player.  Death Ray Designs is there to help.  They have some great terrain that is out of this world.

And then there is their Necropolis collection

Shattered Landscape Debut

Hey Everyone, we are back with another installment of Model Terrain Company of the month.  I get pretty darn excited when we are asked to help show off a new product.  This time it’s from our friends at Death Ray Designs.

They are coming out strong with their Shattered Landscape set and it’s at a great price point, especially in the bundle.  Something that I always struggle with involving structures is their placement to their surrounding.  These structures have enough mix of modern and turn of the century that they would easily blend in on any board.  Like an old bank in a modern downtown or the newest building in a old world, they still look appropriate for their setting.

What I find great about these ruin kits is the variety in size.  I see them used like in the pictures or gluing them to a base and detailing out the fallen structure in the center.  These Death Ray Design kits have a lot of potential.  I’m looking forward to what they add to the Shattered Landscape series.

 

They have many more great kits available, but you don’t wait for me to tell you about them.

Go check out Death Ray Designs.

Armageddon It!

Death Ray Designs is our featured Model Terrain Company of the Month for September.  You may have seen their terrain featured on some of The Narrative Guys tables at Wargames Con and Las Vegas Open.  You may also have spotted some of their custom work that I presented at the Titan Event at Adepticon.  I’m not Foolin’ when I say their catalog will have you in Hysteria.

The Black Site series has two parts to it.  First is Site X.  This is a fantastic sci fi outpost series full of blockaded personnel hubs, watch tower units and com relay towers of various forms.

 

The next part of the series by Death Ray Design is Site Armageddon.  Your Industrial complex full of towers, platforms and walkways.

 

Both of these Death Ray Design sets work well together and can create some amazing scenery to fight through.  Yet the scene wouldn’t be complete without our favorite spice.  Pour some sugar on. . . okay okay, enough with the Def Leppard references.

Death Ray Designs has all kinds of cool stuff to fill out this setting.  Consoles, terminals, air recyclers, pallets and various storage devices.  An outpost, a dash here and there goes a long way.  An industrial setting, feel free to pour it on by the spoonful, one lump or two.

 

Haha, okay now I’m done with the Blind Cheetah references.
