When I was waiting for my order for Dropfleet commander one of the fun things was to look at what else I was going to need. I knew pretty early on I was going to need a new gaming mat. I have a few star maps but as Dropfleet is all about grabbing land masses I needed something new. I had a look around the Facebook group and to be honest the ideas were all the same, either big land masses or mats that looked like Mars. The selection didn’t really grab me at all.
With my other Terrain articles I’ve been aiming for an end product that has some use when gaming. So the Trees and Asteroids have a purpose, the piece this time doesn’t really have a purpose in any game and it’s all for show.
When your out doing demo’s it’s really nice to have something for the mini’s your using to sit on. Whilst a nice glass cabinet is great, it’s a bit much to drag around to places that I’m just doing a demo at. After seeing Mark’s Armies on Parade post it reminded me that my current display board was not only a little small for my expanding force but very bland. It’s just a piece of a very old Zuzzy matt dry brushed and stuck on some blue foam.
