Uncertain Scenery is a small company offering some unusual scenery in MDF. Although they have Medieval style buildings and similar items, we’ll be looking at their Gaming Board Systems and some sci-fi items to accompany them.
The Gaming Board System developed by the company comes in 10, 15 and 28mm. The system is 3D, in that gamers can clip the different board sections together and game across them, and then remove some areas of MDF to reveal a ‘sub-level’ of adventure. Equally, you could use the boards without the ‘floor’ sections and game within a fairly futuristic setting, perhaps an underground bunker, starship corridors or similar.
The 28mm Skirmish Crossroads is one of these 3D Gaming boards, designed for use with 28mm (1/56) scale miniatures. A tunnel crossroads sits beneath removable floor sections. The centre may be supported with the provided acrylic rods to produce a higher level and the whole thing can be attached to other products in the range to produce a large gaming layout, using the 6 clips provided. Made from 3mm and1.5mm MDF, the whole thing measures 304 x 304 x 75 mm (12 x 12 x 3 inch approx.).
The 28mm Skirmish Tunnel T-Junction is similar to the above, representing a large T-Junction tunnel and stair well which again sits beneath removable floor sections. The board comes with 6 clips once more and can also be attached to other boards. The same size as the Crossroads, this adds to the potential layout and gaming opportunities.
The company also produces some separate terrain pieces designed to add to the main parts. These include the Industrial Walkway which is 6” / 152mm with a 3″ and 1″ grid and measures 76 x 162 x 40 mm (3 x 6.5 x 1.5 “ approx). The
Sci Fi Ladder (75mm length) is designed to be added to existing terrain to get to those hard to reach places.
Uncertain Scenery have these are more in their sci-fi collection, including a number of bundle deals which offer basic boards upon which gamers may build. Every piece is cut to order, and they also offer a customization option. With so many MDF-based companies on the market, it’s good to see that some companies are offering something a little different.
