Exploring Battlezones Modular Sci-Fi Terrain (video)

We’ve started to assemble and test out the new Battlezones 28mm sci-fi modular terrain from Mantic. Check em out!  

Here’s our first test building out and our initial thoughts.

In short, we love it, its super affordable, tough and we are building up an entire tabletop of the Battlezone terrain.  What I love is the “hard sci-fi” look that makes the series work with almost any sci-fi game out there from Warpath, to Infinity, and many, many more.

We plan to paint ours up in a series of primary colors with oversized numbers to give it that “hard sci-fi” feel.  Look for it to start showing up in future BoLS battle reports.

From Mantic:

Battlezones is high quality hard plastic sci-fi terrain designed to use with both mass battle and skirmish wargames.


The kits are made from a big range of gloriously detailed tiles and you can quickly snap-fit your buildings together with our innovative connector system, allowing you to construct everything from an entire city quadrant to a small-fortified bunker!

The system is entirely modular and you can assemble your tiles in any combination – there is no limit to what you can build!

Never before has building a true 3D gaming space been this easy or this affordable.

Fortify your Gaming Table


Whether you’re playing in the claustrophobic confines of a planetary research station, the sprawling war-torn cities that litter distant galaxies, or simply want to add Defense Lines, armored strongholds and Landing Zones to your battlefield, there’s a great range of Battlezone scenery sets designed to fill your gaming table:

All of the Battlezones kits are cross compatible, meaning you can expand your battlefield in an unimaginable number of ways.

Battlezones are now available to pre-order from – pre-order the Urban Quadrant now and get 2 FREE Ruins Sprues ahead of the launch later in the year!

So what games/ armies would you use this stuff with?
