Customize your unknown worlds and unexplored landscapes with the latest addition of Antares terrain, complete with random shaped plates to define the area affected!

Termite Mounds

Whether these mounds are hives for creatures or air vents for something larger, they help create an alien feel to any battlefield. Intruding from the ground, these ‘spikes’ don’t bother most troops but they make it dangerous for most, if not all, vehicles.

In the Antares rule book, the Termite mounds will mainly be recognized as rocky pinnacles which have this profile:

Line of Sight Open Ground
Cover +2 Resistance
Difficult Yes

You can create any profile for your terrain just make sure to have consent for both sides!

This set comes with 1 large, 2 medium and 3 small termite mounds plus the MDF terrain area plates.

Alien Plants

505100002 Alien Plants C

Many worlds are abandoned or thought to be lifeless, this just gives the planet the chance to restart, or develop hither to unknown life. Planets can give birth to any type of creature or plant given the many and varied atmospheric conditions – your only limit is your imagination.

Make sure your troops don’t get too close to these plants, we don’t know what they do!

505100002 Alien Plants B

In the Antares rule book, the Alien plants can be anything ‘shrubery’ related, or a super killer death plant, so we suggest a profile like this:

Line of Sight Light Terrain
Cover +1 Resistance
Difficult Yes
Special Rule If a unit moving through or into an area of this plant fails the agility test for difficult terrain it suffers D3 strike value 0 hits. The unit will take a pin on it unless its resistance is 11 or higher

You can create any profile for your terrain just make sure to have consent for both sides!

This set comes with 3 large and 6 small plants plus the MDF terrain area plates.

    That’s actually a pretty cool way to do terrain. Reminds me of the GW tree piece where the trees can be removed as well.

    • zeno666

      Yepp, thats the only GW thing we’re still using around here 😉

    Very nice, I have some of their hoodoos already. Having the base already done saves time drawing one up and ordering it.

  • euansmith

    The Alien Plants look like they are just right to add some plastic aquarium plants to to give them some extra height and foliage.

    • erion

      That’s exactly what people have been doing with them.

        Neato!
