Thought I’d just do a quick post with some pictures of the Amera terrain I’ve finished up so far. I’m really happy with the purchases, but haven’t had the opportunity to use any of it in a game so far. It’s been a very long time since I did any gaming at all, not counting the odd session of Small World with the Mrs, or when we played 7 Wonders (yay!) and Drakon (meh…) last friday when we were over for dinner with some friends. Hopefully this will change as I’m off on vacation starting monday, and won’t return to work until december at the earliest as I’ll also enjoy a few months of parental leave with our boy.

Here’s a Small Hill, a Ruined Wall and one part of the three part Scenery Set, all available in Amera’s Fantasy Realms section. Will have to revisit the edges of the small hill with some more flock. Also, for the next two wall sections I’ll remove the raised “base” and place them on a strip of masonite to lower the profile a bit. Here are a few close-ups.

I still can’t get over the fact that those walls are a mere £0.65. Great stuff, functional and paints up quickly!

For my next post I’ve got a collection of objective markers I’m very pleased with, together with a short how-to on the creation of them. In addition to that, the 15mm dwarves creeps ever closer to completion. Still not finished with basecoating the last three though. This weekend, I hope.

Recently got a package from the nice people over at Amera Plastic Mouldings. They make vacuum formed plastic models at VERY low prices. I’ve been eyeing them for a while, and when I realized Steve over at Somewhere the tea’s getting cold is using their terrain, I decided to order a few pieces. This is what I got, for a measly £25 (including shipping from the UK to Sweden).

3 Ruined Walls, 1 Scenery Set (3 pieces to the right), 1 Moorland Hillock

1 Large Hill, 1 Small Hill, 1 Ruined Building

I was very impressed with the sturdyness of the material used. Thought the pieces would be much flimsier, but the plasticard used is thick and very sturdy. Detail is soft, but actually a little sharper than expected.

I did one of the ruined walls yesterday, as a test piece. Very happy with the result, especially considering the price of the piece (£0.65).

I’ll post more pics when I’ve finished more pieces… with miniatures for scale. The ruined wall is about the height of a 28 mm model at its highest point.

Here’s another pic, with some minis for scale. Unfortunately the photo turned out a bit crap but it serves its purpose. Duncan the paladin is standing on one of the pieces from the Scenery Set. Top right piece in the top photo above.
