Terrain Updates - What Our Friends Have Been Making With Our Terrain Sprues. Includes Assembly Video!

14 likes

A number of our talented hobbyist friends have had early copies of the Maelstrom's Edge terrain sprue and we've been compiling some of the inspired things they've been doing with them. Today, we share a whole host of clever ideas and uses, as well as showing the construction of a building from scratch with another assembly video!

Remember, if you want more terrain sprues, each one is a mere $12. Just add $12 to your total pledge for each sprue you want and we'll contact you after the kickstarter to sort them out. The terrain sprues are inclusive of shipping, so if you want terrain but nothing else, then you can do so without any risk. The sprue is complete but needs a bulk order to get produced, and we are currently looking at October as a potential shipping date for the add-on terrain sprues, ahead of the main boxed set at the end of the year. They will not be available at retail until well after the boxed set goes to retail, so if you want some, make sure you get in now before it is too late!

Now we'll take you through an afternoon of terrain construction using nothing more than guttering, electrical junction boxes, some foam card and our terrain sprue...

Now thanks to the kindness of one of our earliest supporters, you can watch the magic happen in this short terrain assembly video:

      @Kumquat, your neighbours probably have gutters right outside their house, and when's the last time you saw them ever using them? :)
