Hey Guys,
Just finished my 15mm Bretonnian army
and it looks as if there may be a lot of
15mm Fantasy battles on the horizon.
I love a big table with lots of nice terrain,
here's my 15mm Martian table

So I'm hoping to fill a 6x12 table by this April.
Of course we'll have the regular stuff, but I'm looking for ideas for some interesting fantasy pieces.
Maybe even terrain to avoid like the 'Spider Woods'
I joked to my wife that I could get some real spider cocoons from the garage for the terrain piece. She was not to happy with the idea.

When Hobby Lobby has their floral stems at half price (which they do several times a year) I look for things that can be made into crops and fields and hedges and such; they can have all sorts of fantasy effects: poison, gas, man-eating, hallucinating, sheltering giant bugs or rodents, etc. etc.

Another useful type is various sorts of rock, gems, colored plastic, etc. Also the many colors of chenille stripes that can be twisted.

HL or Michaels has tons of useful stuff; the only limit is imagination. I go often and watch for what's on sale.

Ruins. The remnents of ancient and forgotten civilizations not only look cool but provide some back story. They can be a statue or two, the remains of a village or castle, or just some rubble.

Check out "Nano Blocks."

I've often thought of using things like Scibors basing kits for ruin fields( bad going) for Hott in Hyboria.

Go to a pet store and check out their aquarium section for temples, idols, rock formations, etc.

Good stuff, but I kinda prefer martian scenery to be much more reddish/orangeish. Red planet and all that…

A stone circle ala Stonehenge would conveniently fit on a CD and requires barely any sculpting skill. It could be just an obstacle, an objective, a place that gives a bonus to spellcasters, or a gate to Elsewhen.

old cds/dvds are great bases for all sorts of terrain. You can have forest ones, rough terrain ones, big monoliths, statues, pretty much anything on those.
