Greetings guys. I'm trying to put together some varying landscapes for the Adeptus Titanicus Campaign, Titandeath.

I'll need a snow covered world, a desert one, and a good old fashioned green world.

My only problem is finding non-terraced hills in those colors. Just about everything on ebay features largely terraced hills.

I'm looking for more gently sloped hills that will be easy for the Titans to traverse.

If you know where I can find some pre-made hills like that in green, white (snow) and red/tan I would greatly appreciate any tips.

Yes, I could pretty easily make these myself but I'm looking for the easy way out.

Thanks.

Years ago, I got hills like you want from Kallistra in Great Britain. I think they're designed for 15/20mm Flames of War but I use them for 28mm skirmish. They're not cheap & the mailing time is what it is, but they're very durable, light weight & the flocking is like new after hundreds of miles of travel & many games.

BattlefieldTerrain.com make lovely sloped, flocked hills….

Those both look pretty darn good. And I could probably get away with flocking the Kallistra ones white for a winter table.

Cheers Mates.

+1 to Extra Crispy's suggestion. Battlefield Terrain Concepts makes the best in the business.

BTC does sell non-turfed hills (I know I turfed all of mine)

I have the Kallistra hills, some of the best purchases I have ever made. Very very durable. You would have to flock them yourself for use on top of a mat, but I use them underneath. See my short review here: link

Gale Force 9 do some:

Note that these aren't flocked so you could add snow to some as well. Or put them under your mat.

They also used to do Desert Dunes but I couldn't see these on the site.

Why not just make your own.

1/2 inch or 3/4 inch insulation foam; foam cutter; sand paper and you can custom make any hill to any size and slope you want.

Paint and flock for the world you want and you are done. You could make dozens of hills really cheap in pretty short time.

Hey guys, I was reminded by someone above that I can use the same color un-flocked hiss under different gaming cloths.

So I'm currently looking into this store for cloth mats to go with some of the hills suggested above.

Thanks again all for the great suggestions.
