Then the epic game is played on the dining room table, using books under a white tablecloth for terrain. C’mon, be honest; admit it would be a letdown!
Sure, you’d still have fun. We’re gamers; we’ve all made do at times. These days though, we don’t have to. Good terrain is simple to make or easy to buy. There’s no need to be a martyr for the cause! Ditch the sheet and put the books back on the shelf, and +10 cool points if they weren’t game books of some type.
But this brief pictorial isn’t about making terrain. I’ve done plenty of those on Bell, and while a small population seem to appreciate them, it is fair to say they don’t draw the crowds. Nor will this one, probably, but it does have cool pictures of game boards we’d like to throw down a game on.
|This is the only table I’ve used two pictures of. The picture below is with the scenery added, so it’s easy to miss the details and coverage built right into the board. It’s a pretty great idea that’s been well executed.|
That’s it for the pictorial portion of today’s Terrible Tuesday. My point is pretty simple. Our games are improved by playing on an interesting table. For those of you looking for a new challenge, try doubling the terrain you normally play with. Hell, triple it – I really don’t see how you can go wrong!
As always, thoughts? Comments? Hugs and grORKings?
Mmm… for some reason, I feel compelled to celebrate the upcoming Orks Codex. I saw this army on the Spiky Bitz blog, then promptly stole the pictures to reuse here.
Right – I think we’re back in business. Anyway, you’re up! Feel free to share links to terrain articles, products, or features that you think we’d enjoy looking at. And thanks in advance.
