Fallout Terrain Triumphs and Conundrums

    1. Thanks, John! Its actually a Caves mat though I think it can easily pass for other environments. That is great to hear on prehistoric gaming. I’m excited about the possibility of fielding some cavemen but it is just as exciting to know others might be interested in seeing it too ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. They look great! I think if you look at your ME terrain with an open eye, you’ll find more in there that can be used across games as well. Also think about things like fences that will easily work across both games as long as you’re a little conservative with their basing – remembering that even in the most lush environment, there’s always patches of more dry and less overgrown area. Either/both of these would fit into both games, from my experience in reading books and watching films set in ME, and many hours wandering various wastelands…

    1. That’s a good example, mate and thanks for mentioning it! I’ve been thinking about getting some fences together for Fallout and the thought hadn’t even entered my mind to keep it so it can cross over with MESBG. I’ll definitely give this some thought as I plan out terrain for Fallout ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you and you have reminded me that I have a rust tutorial to write in the near future. I will be looking forward to that and to getting some gaming in as well ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Doing well on the rust! One suggestion is to rust around the bolts more as that is where the metal would have been scratched and more likely to be rusted.

    Prehistoric? Don’t temp me. I have been a big fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs forever and have been tempted to do Pellucidar, The Land/Time Forgot gaming for awhile. Warlord Games Savage Core and Bob Murch’s Pulp Figures keep calling my pocketbook but lucky have been able to resist so far.

    Looking forward to see what you are doing.

    1. That is a great suggestion that I need to try on future projects. It is hard to stipple with foam around such fine details but I’ll try to give it a go. Thanks, Bret!

      It sounds like we have a similar project in mind. I was thinking of using Savage Core minis with a different ruleset but instead of jungle or true ice age terrain, I’ll use some of the MESBG stuff I have. I’ll definitely keep you abreast of this project and it is great to know that others are interested/excited by it too!


    1. It is good to hear that even non-gamers would be interested in seeing more. The minis I have been eyeing could be right up your alley, I’d say TIM as they have a bit of a pulp feel, so I look forward to sharing more details in the near future ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Great looking barricades, they appear to be solid and imposing. Iโ€™m glad your GW order arrived as well. And Iโ€™m glad youโ€™re gonna try playing fallout. Usually one can get a good idea how a game plays by reading the rules but nothing is really a substitute for actually playing it.

    Prehistoric? Great choice! Iโ€™ve often been tempted into that genre but havenโ€™t gotten around to it yet. Forest terrain from LoTR should be able to pull double duty as a prehistoric forest as well. What rules were you looking at?

    1. Thanks, Stew! I couldn’t agree more about playing a game. I know I mentioned here on the site but I was convinced I would enjoy the Walking Dead miniatures game and I played the tutorial missions and found it was lacking in personality so that is now in the back of my mind when I have a new game that I haven’t played and I’ll be eager to get a game in soon!

      Great minds think alike! ๐Ÿ™‚ I was going to use the pine trees and rocky hills from the Hobbit to capture a not very cold, Ice Age setting. I’ve been looking at Palaeo Diet from Ganesha Games. It not only has solo play but seems like it has a bit of a narrative focus which is always something I seek out. The fact that it has two supplements on top of the basic rules is encouraging too. There’s other intriguing indie games where I had a similar thought of I only need to paint up 10-20 minis and I can use the terrain I already have but those games only one rulebook with 5 generic scenarios in it which isn’t likely to keep you playing for long and makes you question if it is worth the effort to start playing. I’ll definitely do some kind of a “review” of the rules when I get them to share with others like yourself who may find them interesting.
