The Best Modern War Gaming Terrain for Your Game Table

BMG in action

One of the biggest challenges for many players when getting started with tabletop miniature war gaming is to find the right terrain. Even as a seasoned war gamer I felt like it was a struggle to find good terrain for my games of Batman Miniature Game. In this article I dive into some of the best places I have found to pick up terrain for my modern war gaming needs.

Modern war game terrain can take several forms. You have to decide if you are gaming in the more urban areas of the world, residential suburbs, or even rural locations. The place in the world becomes a consideration as well. Playing a game set, for example, in the Middle East is much different than trying to play out a game on the streets of Gotham or New York City!

Let’s take a look at a few of the more popular game settings and see who makes great terrain for that environment.

Conesy’s Diary: Episode 34 Let’s Get You Started With Airbrushing

My Airbrush Station

I was in a Discord talking with a beginner about airbrushing. They had done their research and were closing in on making that purchase. I shared what advise I could with them. It made me think that I bet there are a number of people out there that could use some advise regarding their first airbrush.

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.
