Well it's been a while since my last post, and for those waiting for the battle reports from my last tournaments they are still in the pipe line and will be appearing eventually.
Today I decided that I will definitely buy the tables so I can have a gaming table at home. I have an a Cities of Death boxset with a few ruins, some barracades and various pieces of terrain I've picked up from ebay a few years ago, but I needed a few more pieces to fill a table. While browsing in my local games store I came accross the Gale Force Nine Battlefield In A Box Range. The idea is that the terrain is already assembled, painted to a gaming standard and ready to use straight out of the box. This is a refreshing change from GW, and is perfect for any of us who find it hard to fit in time to paint our armies let alone terrain pieces.
I decided to pick up a set of small pine trees and a box of crystals.
|The tree boxset contained 14 trees spread over 6 bases along with 2 large bases|
|The crystal boxset contained 10 assorted crystal formations.|
Opening both boxes they were very well packaged. Each collection of threes had it's own plastic section, and the large bases were each in a plastic bag packed within polystrene:
The crytals were just as well packaged. The packaging in both box sets was so good I'll probably use them to store the terrain between games. Again 30 second after opening the box I had a nice array of crystals for my Dark Eldar to fight over (I'm tempted to turn a few of the small crystals into objective markers).
|You couldn't ask for better packaging|
|Whether they clumped to getter to block LOS for infantry or spaced out to give cover as they advance this terrain would improve a game|

For those not near Reading, UK, the Gale Force Nine products are sold via many webstores such as Wayland Games in the UK, where you can get them cheaper than the amount I paid (but I like to occassionly support my local store).
Until next time.
PS. Battle reports are coming soon, I must get them done as I have another tournament, Compliance II, coming up in 4 days.
