Mantic Games has added more plastic terrain to their Terrain Crate range with this Battlefield set. Designed to be used with 28mm sized miniatures, this particular set can be used for both historical and fantasy settings.
Opening the box, you find 10 ziplock bags full of multiple pieces of terrain.
The Wall bags consist of 3 sets of the same nine pieces, intact and damaged stone walls, with a wooden gate and ‘end’ columns to help produce your chosen set up. Moulded in grey plastic, these are based upon walls constructed from irregular stones, topped with inverted slate or similar. A nice touch is the addition of creeping plants or vegetation to some of the walls, and the areas of debris where the walls have been breached. The wall pieces are of different lengths and may be configured as desired. Although each wall has a base, this is a little narrow and they would probably benefit from being attached to one of your own devising.
The Fence bags contain 6 pieces of scenery, with two bags in all. There are 3 pieces of wooden fencing, a piece of hedgerow, a medieval style abates and a wooden signpost. The fencing looks rather old and slightly decrepit, the medieval battlefield ‘fortification’ has a sturdy chain across the logs and the hedgerow has a touch of topiary about it.
The Campsite bags contains 9 items and there are three bags in this set. Each bag has a square tent in the Medieval style, a triangular frame tent, two ‘sleeping bags’, a campfire with rocks and a separate fire itself, a spit with and without roasting animal, a cooking pot, a pile of rucksacks and kit and a tree stump complete with axe and logs.
The single Cart bag contains a horse, two-wheeled cart and a choice of loads, both agricultural in nature.
And lastly, the single Scatter bag contains 8 large items such as boxes, barrels, rubble and crates, plus 4 much smaller items, rats and skulls.
This is a typical Terrain Crate product from Mantic, packed to the lid with useful items that could feature across a number of different genres. The material used is pretty sturdy and everything is well sculpted. Any pieces that get bent out of shape are easily sorted out with the use of hot water. Impressive as always, these are the types of terrain on offer from Mantic Games that can be of benefit to a wide number of gamers and hobbyists.
