So I recently decided to start acquiring some of my own gaming terrain. I thought I’d work on collecting along the theme of a generic farm or ranch. One can use just about any sort of terrain for Warhammer 40K, since battles can take place on almost any sort of landscape. I have been getting into the WWII game Bolt Action lately, and I also occasionally play battles set in the mid to late 18th Century using Muskets & Tomahawks. So the terrain has to suit for those games too. I think these buildings would also look nice in games set in the American West.
The pieces have to be suitable for “heroic 28mm” figures. The roofs can be removed so models can be placed inside and moved around, which is important to me, because all of the aforementioned games include rules for having forces inside buildings of various sorts.
I purchased another building already that is between the size of the two pictured here. I am also hopefully going to add a fenced garden, an outhouse, a well, and maybe some details like stacks of hay and the like.
Maybe I can make a big tentacle out of green stuff that I can show coming up out of the well (or even better — from the outhouse!) when we are using it for science fiction games. I think I’d dispense with such whimsy for our Second World War battles. Our forces have enough to cope with without Cthulhu or some random monstrosity oozing out the Sicilian underdark.
