Hey there, it's been a while since my last post but I have been working on my next 6 posts and it was not until today that all my new stuff for this post finally arrived so without further ado lets get on with the show.
With my Orks and Imperial Guard now fully painted and my Space Wolves only half a drop pod away from completion (expect a big projects end post very soon) my attention has moved to terrain and increasing my complement of interesting scatter terrain. With my Frontline Gaming Blast Zone Megamat likely to arrive at some point during Feb I wanted to have some new scatter terrain to use on it and I still have a green GW battle mat that needs some more terrain coverage.
If you have been following this blog you will have seen my wicked Forgeworld Cityscape and Zone Mortalis tables and I wanted to make my scatter terrain tables looks at least almost as good.
After a few weeks of searching online I settled on the Gale Force Nine Battlefield in a Box range of terrain sets, they are pre painted and the reviews I had seen on various blogs and on Youtube were very interesting.
I quickly discovered that there were several sets of this terrain available now and some that were older and much harder to get hold of and a whole new range arriving in Jan 2014 so I had to act fast if I was to have any chance of gathering up at least one of everything from the following ranges.
Battlefield in a Box - Hall of Heroes - The Grand Vestibule
Battlefield in a Box - Hall of Heroes - The Broken Facade
Battlefield in a Box - Hall of Heroes - Crumbling Remnants
Battlefield in a Box - Hall of Heroes - The Gallery of Valour
Battlefield in a Box - Hall of Heroes - Ruined Columns
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Ruined Wall
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Small Corner Ruin
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Medium Corner Ruin
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Large Corner Ruin
Battlefield in a Box - Summer - Woods
Battlefield in a Box - Autumn - Woods
Battlefield in a Box - Rocky Outcrops
Battlefield in a Box - Badlands - Rocks
Battlefield in a Box - Badlands - Plateau
Battlefield in a Box - Badlands - Bluff
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Crumbling Corner (only sold in UK for now)
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Fallen Angel (only sold in UK for now)
I have managed to get one of all of the above and those below I am still looking for, well the craters I will likely give a miss as I have loads on GW moon scape craters and Apocalypse V1 craters already.
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Craters (only sold in UK for now)
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Ruined Fountain (only sold in USA for now)
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Blasted Terrace (only sold in USA for now)
Battlefield in a Box - Gothic - Buried Monument (only sold in USA for now)
I have used the ruined walls set to dress up the perimeter of each of the corner ruins, the small ruin also includes a 6" section of the wall set.
The hall of heroes sets work so well together to make some very impressive structures.
Here I have mixed the new Crumbling Corner and Ruined Columns set to increase coverage.
This set makes a nice line of sight blocker.
The Fallen Angel makes a nice bit of area terrain while also blocking line of sight to infantry and maybe even a Rhino sized vehicle.
Metal models might not want to venture above the first floor of the large corner ruin as it really is massively tall.
The small and medium ruins look really cool when accompanied by some of the ruined wall sections.
I can see me getting a few more of the Plateau and Bluff sets for my Blast Zone table, the Badlands Rocks set is really hard to get hold of now, seriously its like rocking horse shit rare.
I have never been a big fan on woods but these two sets look really good on the table top, the coverage is good and the colours are great.
These rocks are hard to get hold of now also and strangely are one of my favorite sets of all.
The three above sets are on my list of sets to obtain by any means from the US if possible.
I am not going to pick this set up.
Well thats all for now, check back soon.
