This is my first post here on the site(I actually just found the site tonight). It looks like a great place and I hope to meet a bunch of new people via the forums. I am currently looking to invest a considerable amount of time and energy into warhammer fantasy (perhaps 40K). By investing time I mean I am looking to start producing some warhammer terrain and gameboards. Currently I am doing a lot of work in 15mm wargaming. I thought I would post here to get the warhammer players opinion of my work and their thoughts on its application on the warhammer level. Keep in mind I realize I would need to leave a little more open (larger areas) for warhammer movement trays and units. My main questions are; 1. would warhammer players use it 2. is there a place for such terrain in warhammer 3. what areas need to improved or changed.
I am looking to make a gameboard for myself so I would love to hear from the players of the game what elements I should include on the table.
Looking forward to chatting to everyone.
Hey Shawn, great work, those boards look FANTASTIC! I must say though that they probably wouldn't be suitable for warhammer, as there aren't enough open spaces for the large units to maneouvre around in. But, if you are planning to include more open spaces, the types of terrain pieces you have there (buildings, hedges, fields, etc) are perfect for warhammer and can really affect the game. Keep up the good work!
Yeah thanks, thats kinda what I was hinting at. Leving more open spaces inbetween the features.
you could use it for Mordhiem though
From a logistical standpoint, 40K would be easier to play on a board with less open space like that, simply because of the lack of strict formation types. The 15mm scale probably isn't going to be a big deal. 40K models are often meant to be larger than life, and often aren't even to scale with each other. The style is the one thing that could be hard to explain, but there are a lot of worlds in the 40K universe, and many are sure to be non-futuristic. You'd just have to invent a reason why armies would clash on such a planet.
I do have one big concern though: I fear moving models about these boards would damage those fragile plants.
Beautiful works of art, these boards. I wouldn't want them getting damaged! Kudos.

Things are not as fragile as they appear. That comment is often made but I make them to stand up to all but the roughest players. The kids with the "cheesy covered fingers" as I like to call them.
