Infinity: Terrain


The Dirt posted a little article on terrain setup over at the Bell of Lost Souls (Article here).  I was reviewing it and it was pretty well written and hit on a lot of points.  HMG, spitfire and Sniper rifles are powerful.  Line of sight is the main difference between weapons.  The article brought up a lot of things I didn't think about. 

After reading the article I thought about it and posted to my local gaming group the setup I had using the new tiles from Shark Mounted Lasers.  Their were a lot of concerns about the open areas the tiles provided.  I gave some initial thoughts on what can be done to make these kill zones more balanced.  My ideas initially would have amounted to some cover but not much else.  The good news is talking things out with people makes it easy to figure out new ideas.  I came up with a festival or street fair idea.

Below is the table I used Saturday:


Mind you not everything is painted.  I am looking at getting it done soon.  It was pretty well received and they said that the cargo crates broke up LOS nicely.  I even had some 40k players make a comment about how cool the table was.  I didn't get a chance to play on it.  I plan on switching them out with the following items to add to the street fair feel:




They should provide ample LOS blocking and add to the feel.

Here are some more pics of the table.
