What is the hardest part of a terrain collection? Making it? Nah.
Sturdiness? Sometimes. Well what? The hardest part is storing all that stuff!

And If you haven't watched Mel Bose's video on his Terrain Triad ( youtu.be/MMTjNJ2KqOU ), you should give it a watch.

My last post on Jungle terrain is about how you can take the same jungle and make it fit multiple genres. This gains you an efficiency in that you can reuse terrain and then make it feel totally different by changing out key elements and scatter. The arrangement of the terrain can change the tabletop, but the supporting bits that give the terrain its "feel" can really make the difference. These last photos will show the difference between a generic-modern jungle (ie Indonesia or Indian Jones movies), a fantasy jungle, and a sci-fi jungle. Just changing the scatter can make a big difference.

So save yourself some space and money. Build a solid core set and then outfit it with a variety of theme elements as needed. The same core jungle can have endless variations without taking up endless space.

Finally had a chance to finish the flying beasties for my sci-fi jungle. Interactive terrain is the only way to play

I will do a proper photo shoot with the rest of the jungle and figures on Friday

I can see this being useful

Knights of Dice
Time to get our Legion on! Scott and I both have our sets, no doubt we'll both be busy painting over the weekend!

With painted figures, of course we need something to keep them in ... so we quickly whipped up a box set for the Core Box today. This is an insert designed to hold the Core Box stuff and go back in the Core Box.

We'll expand on this after we come back from the Easter Break!

Have a great weekend!

Go go Death Guard!

I'm going to have to work with them on the terrain. Not enough of it there. That'll encourage static lines instead of move and shoot gaming which is the strength of marines. Gotta break some bad habits...
