Terrain hobby articles, techniques, and tips are all shared. The hosts over the years have worked on and made more terrain and we share what’s worked and what’s not as we continue to explore and make new projects.

TT Combat’s Subway Entrance Dressed for Gotham City

While we were randomly shopping at one of our local game stores, Noble Knight, we wandered over to the MDF terrain section and looked through the kits on hand. I always love looking through the various kits, looking for ideas. Some times, I end up walking away with a kit or two. That’s when I picked up the TTCombat Subway Entrance Terrain Kit.

TTCombat has been producing quality MDF kits at amazingly affordable prices for a long time. For modern city street war games I haven’t found a company that produces a wider range of options at the price point. For around 10 dollars US, the TTCombat Subway Entrance Terrain Kit is another of these great values.

Assembly

Assembly was a breeze. Well, ok, my wife assembled it so not much work on my side. That said, it’s honestly not a hard kit to assemble. TTCombat provides a PDF that you can download from their website for the assembly instructions. The one thing I would caution is that you dry fit everything before gluing together. Gluing together the kit should be done with PVA (Elmer’s Glue All is what we used). Assembly was relatively quick and painless if you follow the instructions.

TTCombat Rooftop Accessories Fire Escape

I recently painted the Fire Escape part of the TTCombat Rooftop Accessories MDF terrain kit. I had a blast painting this up and tried some new techniques that I thought I would share to help make this kit pop on the table top.

Street Basing Made Simple

I wanted to quick share with you a very easy technique I recently discovered for doing street basing. For most of my Batman Miniatures Game models I have opted to put them on street bases from Secret Weapon Miniatures. These bases are super cool and I highly recommend them. However, with the recent bikes and a few other base sizes that Secret Weapon doesn’t have that I need for the game I had to look elsewhere for techniques.

Merry Mayhem 2016 Terrain Day #2

Today was a very productive day with friends Dustin and Evan swinging by to help out Brian and myself work on terrain for this year’s upcoming Merry Mayhem event weekend. You haven’t seen much about Merry Mayhem specifically on this site, but scoot over the http://merry-mayhem.com and check out all of the information, dates, and how to register. In the mean time, while your here, look at all of the new terrain coming to the table this year at the event!

Weekend Terrain Workshops

Last couple of months has seen a lot of work on terrain projects happening around the house as I start to get prepped and ready for this year’s Merry Mayhem. I can’t take credit for doing the work on most of these projects, but the WIP progress results look great so far!
