@oconlon – Terrain

It was commented on twitter, by Owen; that there was little terrain on the WM/H and Flames of War boards.  Twitter being what it is, limits the kind of reply this question deserves.  I can’t comment on the Flames of War, but from all appearances; there is the usual amount on there.  I can only go by what I see played at Worlds at War, which the photo shows; what I normally see at the shop.

With regards to the WM/H, I agree the terrain wasn’t what we would normally have.  Worlds at War, brought all the terrain from the shop; which usually doesn’t run both FoW and WM/H on the same day.  So what is normally only used for one tournament, was split between two tournaments. Livingston Battleground also helped out, by loaning some of their terrain. Overall though, we are only really missing some hills and elevations.  There is another issue to consider, which I don’t think applies too other games – distance from control zone (CZ)/flag.  In tournaments that I have played (and run), terrain can’t be placed within 4″ of the flag/CZ.  Now I’ve checked SR2011, but can’t see anything there; so I am checking into this.  Anyway on the basis that this is right, this is what you get –

Terrain from last tournament at Worlds at War, notice the difference in what we have available.

A big corridor through the middle, where the templates take up nearly 14″; if you include the ‘no terrain’ zone around it.  Normally on a Tuesday night, this is what it looks like –

However Owen is right in pointing it out, that the terrain appears sparse. Especially through the middle, which as the Press Ganger; I should have noticed the terrain creeping further and further out.  Readjusted it after each game, then made whatever modifications were needed for the next scenario.  It’s something that I will now be aware of and deal with it in future events.
