Urban Jungle and Aquatic Terrain

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, thought I'd show off a little project I'm working on, in anticipation for the Rose City Raid 2019. I've been making urban-friendly areas of terrain, so that we can add them to any board, in case someone doesn't bring adequate special terrain. For aquatic terrain, I've been making fountains and ponds, complete with sculpture for the middle, and for woods I figure what's nicer than some city parks.

Obviously these are still very WIP, but I thought I'd throw them out here so you guys know what kind of things to expect next year. If you want to make your own, these are really inexpensive to make with some extra bits and some cheap painting boards: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BLX2J1X/

Still have a ways to go with some plasticard before painting and adding trees and water, but I'm pleased with how quickly these came together.

Thanks! I'll hopefully have them all done by the end of the week.

For the Rose City Raid, every table will have at least some difficult terrain like these to navigate through, many may have some exceptionally weird things like Nimbus Zone generators (which I'm working on now as well), minefields (non-difficult, but highly dangerous), and other fun things to worry about. 🙂

I am planning a Haqqislam table with an Oasis (water) and a Power Generator creating a Saturation Zone within eight of the generator. 

That sounds rad!

I’ve been considering “within X-inches” types of terrain, I think the only issue comes down to it being difficult to tell when measuring LOF, and easier to forget during the game. I am making some low-standing terrain though to make it so I can have portable saturation zones, without being difficult to see the boundary of. I'd be happy to donate a pair of these to Ordo for use on that table once I get them cut, I'm using them for the exact same purpose, to serve as the dangerous venting around my power station . The interior, where the green hexes are, is going to be cut through, and the whole thing fits around a computer fan I have a bunch of, to create the fan part of the vent. This lets people just easily play that the entire terrain piece makes a nimbus zone that projects upward. The whole thing is about 5" across.
