PostSubject: Terrain Day to 5th-i-fy our boards?   Tue Jul 08, 2008 6:14 pm

Anyone wanting to do a terrain day to get our terrain ready for 5th Ed?

We are going to need some bigger true LoS terrain and so on.

Of course i wont be there, just getting the ball rolling!

I think this will be a very necessary thing to do, otherwise gunlines will rule the day on our boards since we will have nothing to hide behind.

Or everyone will have to bring lists with lots of land raiders and rhinos to just be mobile cover.

Personally I love Greg's enormous rock terrain piece. 14 inches long, 8 inches high and 6 inches wide about.

My entire army can hide behind that beast. While we don't need mega terrain like that, we should build some things that can fully and partially hide some larger models.

I have been picking thru eBay looking for Land Raiders, Leman Russ, Chimeras, etc that are being sold for cheap as they have awful paint jobs or whatever. These will make some nice wrecks.

Example

Yeah, I'd have to agree, Matt. I REALLY like the Cities of Death stuff, and really want to paint some of it! Smile Maybe I might need to add that to my July painting pledge....

totally down with CoD. Notice my post in the market forum.

I'd be willing to host a build party at my crib.

I've got a ton of grey paint from other projects, plastistruct pieces, spare hard board, flock and ballast, pipe, 30#s dental plaster, hirst molds, checked wallpaper, tacky glue, glue gun, envirotex water, epoxy, foam and foam cutters. Everyonethat comes pitches in $10 for the CoD boxes and we fire it up. We can make it a all day Sat event. 10am to whenever. I did this before for our Conf group pre gen con.

add a couple of cases of brew in the cooler and BAM... you can block some LOS.

The only necessary terrain is three building to hide basilisks behind.

Sounds like a blast John, let us know a time and I'll be there at least.

Terrain might be my favorite aspect of the game.

If one of you guys wants to pick it up, I'll sell any number of the kits on my website for half off.

www.flyingtricycle.com

The res-units and city square are quite large, and I'm working on a tank factory and a landing facility like the one in the latest White Dwarf.

The trees are sitting in a box at my parents house.

but to be honest they are pretty useless in 5th.

I think a tree here and there might look good for effect, but forests are just annoying now imo.

cover isn't still cover when you get a 4+ from the unit in front of you. Better to use our terrain to build things that actually impact the game. Trees and forests are in the past my friend.

Kroot should be coming in from the sides and causing mayhem.

Keep your Fire Warriors in the Devilfish for scoring Wink Seriously, the Devilfish APC is silly tough now.

What!? What else do you do with them? ld7 t3 s3 i3 no save. You bring them out of cover and they are toast. I can't see anything but a couple of big squads to sit on objectives or speed bump.

It will take a while for terrain to catch up to 5th, so you got your trees for a little bit. Especially at my hizouse.

nah man, use them to outflank and hit heavy weapon squads in the backfield. At least that is how I see them being used now.

Coming in from the board edges and hitting slow moving/static squads.

I hear ya! Maybe, I was thinking more Stealths for that role. Kroot are just so unimpressive on the charge most of the time. With hounds they do OK.

I really want a few bases of those new platic Citadel woods. They would block LOS pretty decent.
