board terrain #2
« on: 30 September 2019, 14:37:29 »
I already have FASA sizes hexed terrain and very much enjoy it, but decided to go a little bigger this time. I have some forests and some hills (aktually: that is all the hills). Bigger hexes allows to place a 'Mech properly in the forest and make weapon distances a little more realistic. Next phases are water and city outskirts.

Is that corrugated cardboard to make the hills/bases?  I'm working on something similar myself right now

It is cork: light, very durable and very easy to glue and paint. Similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/Quartet-Corkboard-Bulletin-Natural-102/dp/B0018DHBAK . Unfortunately those hills are still too low to properly cover BattleMech by level 2.

And another fun fact: those kind of layered rocks are quite common, ex. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c9/Kuku%C5%82cze_ska%C5%82y._Punkt_widokowy.jpg .

Someone is on fire . . . looks like a FedSuns unit getting ambushed going down the road?

Thanks. Actually, those are road trains, Gienah-Durapaq Elite Series 3 wannabees. And there are more, than two.

They are half based on Brigane Models monorail series http://www.brigademodels.co.uk/6mmSF/Monorail.html and custom tracked chassis from Red Alert 2.

Transported vehicles are Scotia Grendel scrap and old 1:300 models from GZG. Fits the scale and it is good enough.

Some more buildings, a new dropship and I dropped a bucket of miniatures on the floor.

Trying to figure out the fight . . . red side Taurians- saw the Toro?  I would guess against Davions or maybe Star League.

The original idea was SLDF and Taurians during Reunification War, but it would be pretty limited by available tech in that time. I guess it could be some sort of local insurection, any other minor conflict around 2700, with the exception of some later minis like Atlas.

I'm pretty big on Star League miniatures, but my periphery forces are in need of reinforcements.

Well, the Proliferation box will help with some of that missing.  Then you also have the whole primitive line . .

Anyway, LOVE big battles with the battlefield adds of fire, smoke and other visual representations.
