Wargames Scenery / Terrain – Readymade and kit form.

Posted: 27th February 2011 by wargamesscenery in Readymade / Kit Scenery

Not everyone  has the time or inclination to make all their own wargames scenery / terrain from scratch, and there is a whole industry out there that has grown up to support them, from the heavy weights such as Games Workshop to one man bands hand crafting or casting their own scenery to sell on eBay. Now, I enjoy making my scenery, but there are times when I think it would be great to have a such and such item of scenery for a particular Warhammer scenario I want to play, but it has to join the back of the queue of ideas to be made. This is when off the shelf scenery appeals!

There are many types of kit terrain available. Games Workshop make a range of  buildings and I have built their fortified manor kit. Great quality and looks fantastic when done, but not cheap. You can also get lots of cast pieces, either in resin or dental plaster - the Hirst Arts range exemplifies this approach, possibly cheaper but requiring some effort to put together. Buying your terrain ready made or in kit form is a great timesaver when perhaps you don't have the time to build everything you want yourself. You can of course add to kit terrain with your own modifications, or add bits of kits to terrain you are building. I find that adding the odd bought bits & pieces to some scenery I am making can a) enhance the result and sometimes b) make it easier to build in the first place. As an example, at the time of  writing this I am building a Dwarf Brewery to use with my son in 8th edition  Warhammer Fantasy battles. Its made of a foam building (see my post on the subject), with stone effect carved into it and part of a plastic bottle for the brewing kettle, combined with bits of balsa wood and so on. Now, I needed some pipe and would ideally have liked some valves / control wheels. I wondered what I could use, but in the end for ease I found a great set of pipes/valves on eBay designed specifically to be used in wargames terrain. Perfect! I also got myself some barrels cheaply to 'dress'' the finished scenery with. Maybe not the purist approach of building it all yourself, but in the end I think I will have a better scenery piece as a result.

eBay is a great place to find huge range of wargames scenery / terrain pieces and accessories for your own terrain pieces, for all game systems from Warhammer / Warhammer 40K to FOW etc. With that in mind, I've set up a mew category on the site to cover readymade and kit wargames scenery, with posts covering all the popular terrain types. So, if you are after some scenery for your next Warhammer game, they might be worth a browse.
