Found this while toying around eBay and tracked down their website. I'm actually kind of entranced by this one and may end up doing the purchase. For those who prefer to have some sort of set platform to work off of (those who kitbash more than scratchbuild...y'know, like me) this looks like a really affordable way to get a silly amount of good DE looking terrain on your table.

Thought it might interest people.

That looks great.
Might buy it if we build a new board. But have a desert/city teamed table made from scratch and a GW table that are snow themed atm. For now that is enough, but might be something for the future Very Happy

Bah, we'd just webway it in to any table Wink

But, yeah, it's almost enough by itself to just be a table. Maybe it's time I add to my cityfight and autumn ruins tables with a 'streets of Commoragh' table...

Because what I really need is another big project.

Oh, hell, and i was dreaming of building something like that myself.

Add some poisonous green lake for lethal terrain, an area terrain of bones to represent place where Wych Cult store bones of every living thing in the galaxy and there will be great table called

"Port Node of Commoragh"


Great finding Thor!

That does look great, thanks Thor. Not a bad price for what you get, either.

My first thought was too blocky, then I thought.... hmmmm, kitbashing and customisation. Then I saw the price and wow. Buying one.

If you buy one you should do an unboxing and review of it.
Heck, promise to do one for them and maybe get a discount?

hmmm... 1 set would make an awesome display board... kinda beats my idea of an imperial city with them constructing a WWP in the middle of a city square Razz Atleast this would be alot easier...

I like the look of this stuff and I'm seriously considering getting a set.

I Purchased a set and will do a quick review once i get it.

I intend to coat it with polyurethane foam hardener to give it some durability then paint it glossy obsidian black.

A guy in my Warhammer club picked this up and brought it by the store we play at today. I checked it out and it's pretty cool.

Here's the thoughts of the 2 guys that played on it:

"It gamed pretty good. The biggest concern was how light it was. Some of it has to be weighed down but, I think I have a good solution for it. I have something coming my way that's already painted, so I'm going to focus on blacking out the set first, them when the pieces get here, match the high lights to those pieces."

"It really is a show-stopper as far as design and table layout. Its extremely light, And even the slightest nudges move and topple models very easily. I can fit the maulerfiends under the walkways easy enough so very play-able and I had no issues moving 70 cultists under the walkways and bridges. Once it is mounted to bases, it will feel more stable and play even better - You really can not beat this for a quality terrain deal."

So essentially you need to coat it with something and perhaps weight it down a bit.

Looks amazing though!

Hurm - I do like the ability to keep setting it up new ways though. Maybe just glue some washers along the bottom of all the pieces to add weight, but still allow them to be repositioned as I please?

Also;

Dark City now has a lottery to win a free set - huzzah! (of course I will win it, but, y'know, you should all compete anyway)

Adding weight shouldn't be too much of a problem, just glueing a magnet to the underside and adding extras till the weight is what you want

Hehe yes I also entered but you are much prettier than me so I'm going for a pity vote :p

A trick I've seen used well to weigh terrain down is to attach cuts of vinyl flooring to the underside. It's very heavy stuff, easy to attach, and extremely cheap. Some people may even have extra lying around their house.
