Today we will reveal the secrets of creating a terrain that will bring your battles to life!


The art of terrain placement: tips

Wargame has no hard-and-fast rules for terrain layout, but there are some tried-and-true guidelines:

  • Choosing a theme and scale: Start by determining the theme - will it be dystopian urban ruins or abandoned alien landscapes? 

  • Balance and Strategy: Spread the terrain evenly across the game table. Remember that each player's side of the field is determined randomly, so you need to ensure a level playing field.

  • Freedom to Maneuver: Leave enough space for units to move. Too much terrain can limit the dynamics of the game.

  • Lines of sight and cover: Create interesting hiding places and lines of sight that allow players to employ different strategies.

  • Game Scenarios: Consider game scenarios when placing terrain. Different missions may require unique configurations.
