Just FYI, the term is "tract home", not "track home"… unless you live in a private railcar… or just WAY too close to a railroad. :-)

POLL DESCRIPTION

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member bemoans...

Do a search for terrain in any scale, and you have no problem finding WWII-period buildings, trenches, bridges, etc., all the way back through the Bible!

Finding anything more recent than the Vietnam War is an entirely different story! Most wargamers who game "ultra-modern" over the past few years have had to home-brew city buildings or pillage from railroad sets.

Heck, there is even more sci-fi terrain these days than "Modern" terrain!

If you could pick a 'Top 5' things needed for a post-1991-to-present-day environment (scale neutral), what would they be?
