In the comming weeks i intend to start building some modular boards and scatter terrain for wastelander photography (i've been playtesting with random bits from my collection
The board will be sandy/wasteland with hills, ditches, cliffs and escaprments.
the scatter terrain will be along several themes such as Rock Spires and Rubble, Scraps and Ruins, Oasis Settlement Buildings as well as a set of modular sewers and caves. these will serve as a practice run for the various resin and vacuum formed plastic terrain kits i want to produce for the game.
I'd also like this thread to serve as a home for other peoples wastelander terrain projects
the first dilemma i face is what size to make the board sections, 2 foot x 2 foot or 2 foot x 4 foot
If your terrain features are built onto the base sections 2x4 is big. It won't allow as much flexibility of arrangement. On the other hand 2x2 is less stable for play unless you integrate a joinery system. Or you could do 2 at 2x4 and a group of 2x2 to allow the big ones to anchor the smaller.
Well, I'd only be be putting contour terrain on the borad sections, everything like structures, plants and features such as rubble piles, baricades etc will all be searate scatter terrain. a mix of board sizes might be the way to go. maybe 2 2x2 boards and a single 4x2 board to begin with
I've managed to get my hands on a very sturdy 4 foot by 6 foot dining table that can be extended by adding up to 2 additional 2 foot by 4 foot leaves. It's scratched, dented and dinged but it will provide a great base on which to use my modular boards. I'm probably not going to set it up for a while (it's in my mum's spare room ATM until i get rid of my old table to make space)
