Trees and Terrain for Wargaming

This past month I walked around the Fall-In commercial sales area during a break between a few of my games and found some interesting things. I am always on the look-out for new terrain or at least nice terrain to better dress up my gaming tables for a variety of systems. I mostly play Flames of War, Warmachine and recently took a dive into Team Yankee. Adventure Terrain is a company that has an interesting take on trees and other gaming terrain.

Realistic terrain really does make all the difference.


Finding something new for your table may take some time, whether it's finding something to add to an existing terrain collection, or the time to save some money and start acquiring your own pieces for a table at home. Getting nice looking, durable and affordable terrain is important for any tabletop gaming experience.

One of the hardest things for me to model is trees, there are so many ways to make trees, that's sometimes overwhelming when you can go out and buy some at your FLGS or buy the stuff for a DIY project. In my wandering around, I discovered something that was new to me and I have decided to share it with you. Perfect for your wallet and table ready!
Adventure Terrain is a creator of trees, roads and rivers that are fairly new to the terrain and scenery market. Though not new as far as tabletop gaming is concerned. Though I did not see any roads and rivers first hand, I wanted to really show off a great little system that makes their tree and area terrain pieces unique.



These terrain pieces are fantastic. They're constructed from a thin piece of durable acrylic or plastic and have the areas for the tree bases removed and a magnetic system is in place. They have edges created in such a way that you can have more than one piece connected to another, depending on whether you want to increase it's size while on the table. The magnetic system is great, you can remove the trees to get your stands to fit, you can insert a flat piece which has flock on it to cover up or change the visual of the terrain.

As you can see here, the small piece would simply slide right next to the other without much effort. The empty slots, as mentioned can be filled in by inserts, which are also magnetic, or you can add rocks to make them different. It's great that the area pieces are not square and add to the overall look.



This 'kit' was a starter pack that Richard had put together for Fall-In and to get the word out about his terrain and just a few pieces would easily be enough for a 6'x4' table. If you're looking for more information or wish to contact Adventure Terrain you can hit Richard up at Adventure Terrain or contact him through sales@adventureterrain.com

Shame their website seems to be broken or perhaps not finished. No prices or buy buttons in the shop part.

Yes, this is true. I'm afraid sometimes people are ready to show everyone their stuff, but contacting them sometimes is difficult. I think trying to build a website that is easy to navigate and being the one to create and market their creations is a little too overwhelming for some to handle.
