Some of the Terrain we use here in my Man-cave

Post by Big Jim » Wed Jun 02, 2010 4:44 pm

I recently inherited my Fathers terrain, he's moved outta the area and doesn't feel like hauling it with him. Win for me, I can now cover 5 feet of table in forest! It needs some small fixes, but I think it is still fantastic looking stuff.

Here is a sampling of the pieces.

Here are some better detail shots; I've placed some of my Soul Reapers Chaos marines in the pics for scale.

A little background on my Father. He has been gaming since the mid 70's with a passion for the ancient world. During the 80's when gamers were still playing on bare tabletops with some colored felt scattered about for terrain. He undertook the task of creating 2x2 ft modular terrain using the same techniques that model railroaders use. Since that time he has won multiple awards for his fantastic layouts. Here are some scanned pics of that first terrain layout.

I just found this Egyptian terrain in some of the boxes. It also includes a pair of sphinxes and a bunch of columns.

It would make for a great looking abandoned desert world for 40k.

Excellent stuff!

For the record, I'm filtering out any other "pictures of your man-cave" just because of the imagery.

I really enjoyed hearing your story of getting into gaming via your dad, :)

I hope my kid is as cool later on.

Of course, I don't have any terrain like this to entice him, :)


Man, I really like that little cabin.

Ooooo Egyptian Buildings...I'm such a sucker for Egyptian models....
Also, what do you use for your Pine Trees? They look like Woodland Scenics, but I'm not quite sure.

I recognize those trees as not being woodland scenics but another brand that sells like 20-35 in a bag depending on the scale. IIRC the Woodland Scenics trees are just armatures that you flock yourself.
Who was that masked man?
