Too much terrain?

Recommended Posts

Looking for some constructive criticism on this board. I made the towers and the hills myself. I made the scatter terrain by using Imperial Terrain Group fire sale crates and glued them to some old circuit boards. The U-Wing seems the right scale but just too big to use on a 6x3, or is it just me? Anyway. Is this too much terrain, too little?

Nice job overall. The tower with ramp looks great, the other one with ladders I'm wondering if it's in scale correctly or not game wise. Hopefully each tier is not beyond height of range 1, otherwise doing a clamber just to reach each of the two tiers just isn't worth it.

Is there too much or too little? It is suggested as a guide to have 1 quarter of the table worth, yet also states it's really up to you & your opponent. You both can agree to have equal, more, or less than suggested.  I'd like to add, depending on what your army is should guide you to how much and what kind of terrain. If you have lots of close quarter units more terrain would be suggested, while lots of long range vice versa.

To me, it looks about right, possibly on the low side of things, but I like lots of terrains.  Otherwise, I'd say it looks great, and I'm jealous of the U-Wing.  Been trying to grab one off Ebay for a few weeks, and keep getting sniped at the last second.

I paid a little more than I should have but I received an Amazon GC for. Y birthday and decided to pull the trigger.

I got a $50 Amazon gc from a work contest and then bought a vintage copy of a big old Chaos Warhammer book with it.

Coworkers: What did you do with the giftcard you won?

Me: Nothing. I don't know. Gave it to my wife?

Lol. I just turned 40 and my coworkers think I’m an idiot for dumping cash into this “kids game”.

Yeah, SO MUCH CASH WASTED!

3 core sets and 2 extra commanders, plus maybe priority supplies or whatever extra unit you think looks cool, is STILL all you really need to play Legion, and it costs less than some "grown ups" blow in one weekend at bars. Or in a few hours at a bar with "live dancing". And nobody bats an eye if an adult dumps exponentially more money into a sports-fandom, which is also a "kids game".

If people think I spend too much on my eccentric hobbies, f*** 'em.

Still I didn't want the coworkers prying, those old Chaos books were weird. "Why do these monsters have ***** and why is this guy wearing a flag that says ******?"

I don't bother listening to the opinions of my co-workers. If it's not alcohol, football and gambling it's a waste of money to them...

It looks great, but I'd say its too little. A lot of that stuff looks like it won't really block line of sight, and the hills and the tower are tall enough that a unit on top could see over almost everything.
