Point of this post? – I believe I found a great bargain that offers great terrain with lots of potential – and I wanted to share it with you.

This terrain is titled 'Goblin Town'. I bought the GW boxset of The Hobbit's Goblin Town when it came out DESPITE not being a collector of 28mm miniatures (any more) and a bit of a GW-hater (okay, more of a GW-disliker. Life is too short to hate people that make toy soldiers for a living). I still liked the miniatures and the 'concept' of the terrain enough. Indeed, the terrain is the only component part I've painted so far (see some in the pics). I think the appeal was the multi-level platformer dimension it brings to the table – think Necromunda/Mordheim.

I've a lot more to comment on and many more photos on my blog here link Didn't want to bung up TMP forums… Hope you all find something of interest.

Well, I thought it was a bit pricey when it first came out, but have been kicking myself continuously since missing a few close-out copies.

You aren't helping any, I might add. ;->=\

Its not a great deal but it is a good starter. I bought The Hobbit Box Set so that I would get the goblins and the terrain set at a cheaper price.

I am using the goblins as mutants/morlocks and using the goblin town planks as a sizing reference and squash mold for all the intestines and skulls for when I make more.

Arrrgh.

I see now that the words I pulled from my full blog entry and posted here suggest I am 'promoting' the 'Escape from Goblin Town' set from GW.

No! I'm not. You're right very pricey for what you get. My focus is on the hand-made, scratch built terrain I bought off eBay from Hazard Manufacture based in Poland!

Consists of rock formations with built in platforms, free standing platforms, free standing rocks, walkways and ladders.

Yes, based on the same concept as GW's terrain (and the movie of course) but at a fraction of the price and IMHO far better and more flexible…

Sorry for the confusion. Perhaps a visit to the full blog entry would be better loads of photos with 15mm and 28mm miniatures, sci fi, fantasy and some Pirates!

That would make great terrain for Malifaux games!

C'mon Lad, get it right!

Come see me at Carronade, I have a little present for you.

Jimboba23 Apr 2015 1:01 a.m. PST

Present! I love presents!

I'll be there – hopefully be able to catch up better than last year!

You're right very pricey for what you get.

But those who picked up the closeouts I missed MUST be grinning!

Thanks for the clarification; I'll have a look at the blog in a bit, and cogitate on buying from Poland.
