Poundland Geomorphic Terrain Boards


I slunk (slinked?) into the local Poundland today, looking for some replacement magnetic pick up tools for flight stands. This was a dead end but I did find some 30cm x 30cm x 4mm mdf squares that are perfect for geomorphic terrain boards, despite having a couple of holes drilled in them for the string. For some inexplicable reason they are marketed by Poundland as 'Xmas Home Plaques' and have some cheesy festive motto on the back.

Not sure what I'm going to use my sixteen squares for but since when has that stopped me, especially as they only set me back eight quid due to being knocked down to half price in the sale! I have enough for a square or rectangular set up, covering a decent area for 15mm skirmish games or perhaps even an aerial warfare set up for Flashpoint Baltic, as 4' x 4' is the suggested area to use with Target Locked-On.

I think I may get some more because... 'good wargaming terrain thingys are like stars, you don't always see them but they are always there' ...or something?

  1. I got 16 as well on your suggestion! Will be fun to make them into something interesting! Happy new year! I hope 2017 is a happier one for you and your family!

  2. Thanks Mark.

    I'm thinking 1/600th scale Western Front for air wargaming??? I'll have to get your advice for ground texturing etc.
