I think that lasercut MDF terrain has been a great innovation for the tabletop wargaming hobby. It means that we can get hold of very reasonable priced terrain pieces that are fairly well detailed, sturdy and easy to mail (they turn up flat-packed).
One manufacturer I’m sure I’ve mentioned before is Sarissa Precision, who have a rather nice sci-fi range called System Infinity. I don’t think it’s that much of a coincidence that the range fits perfectly with the sci-fi skirmish game of the same name!
Anyway, the Cross Gaming Club have pooled some funds and shelled out for a full set of the stuff and I have volunteered my services to assemble and paint them.
Having scoured the internet and my collection of concept art books we’ve decided to go for a Mass Effect style colour scheme, rather than the grimy industrial look that is so ubiquitous thanks to the gothic future stylings of Warhammer 40K.
First up will be a single habitation module as a test piece.
It comes with a set of railings to go around the top but I think I’ll be leaving them off for now as they’re a bit spindly and I can’t imagine them lasting too long being packed away in a hurry after a game.
Once we’ve settled on a colour scheme I will be embarking on getting the rest done over the coming months. There’s plenty of pods, modules, silos and gantries to keep me busy!
