Millest's Wargaming Blog!
It will no doubt end up becoming a place for my own odd thoughts! However its meant to start life as a Wargaming, hobby and painting blog. It will also be a book review site, a bit of a product review page, an airsoft blog and in places lots of other things, but over all I hope it will be a good read!
Forge World Newsletter #330 - Zone Mortalis Tiles and Terrain
Apologies that not much has been happening on the blog this past week, Jury Duty is calling and spending too much time on that, still onwards with the post.
As always all the important bits below:
there, In this week’s newsletter we return to the perilous
confines of the Zone Mortalis with four fantastic new scenery tiles, two
interior detail kits, and a 6th edition update to our free Zone Mortalis
Warhammer 40,000 expansion. Read on for more!
Realm of Battle Zone Mortalis
Tiles In a galaxy beset by war, any building or corridor
may be pressed into service as a strongpoint. Abrupt corners and shadowed
alcoves typify the interior workspaces, while the narrow corridors and indeed
larger internal rooms can be sealed off by great plasteel blast doors. These
cramped and narrow corridors form the most savage arenas of combat conceivable;
battlefields that the Codex Tactica Imperialis refers to as ‘Zone
Mortalis’ - the fatal ground.
Blake Spence has designed four new
Realm of Battle Zone Mortalis tiles: the Epsilon Complex, Eta Complex, Theta Complex and Zeta Complex, each measuring 1' x
1' (300mm x 300mm). These detailed hollow resin tiles are fully compatible and
interchangeable with each other and with our Alpha, Beta, Delta and Gamma tiles;
conveniently available together in the Realm of Battle Zone Mortalis
Set, allowing for a near-limitless variety of terrain
set-ups. These new
tiles add huge potential to our Zone Mortalis range, creating new tactical
challenges for players as well as fantastic opportunities for modellers. The
Theta Complex, in particular, is especially useful as a diorama base as well as
allowing large rooms to be created in a Zone Mortalis gaming table. Our Studio
team are already talking about using these new tiles to create attack craft
hangars and shuttle bays, among others... These four
new terrain pieces are available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 25th
January, and you may recall that we recorded a video to give you a closer
look at the Zone Mortalis scenery with the initial release of these fantastic
scenery tiles last year. Zone Mortalis Containment Tanks and Scribe
Station Daren Parrwood and Blake Spence have also designed
two resin interior detail kits for use with the Zone Mortalis tiles. The
Scribe Station and Containment Tanks both form detailed
and characterful additions to the wall sections of a Zone Mortalis tile, and are
perfect for developing the theme of your terrain, and for use as primary
objectives in your games.
Both of these
detail kits are available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 25th
January. Zone Mortalis Warhammer 40,000
ExpansionIn addition to a fantastic scenery range, the
Imperial Armour team also released a completely free Warhammer 40,000 expansion,
allowing you to set your own games in the desperate and savage confines of a
Zone Mortalis. These rules cover a huge variety of environments, from
subterranean bunker complexes under bombardment, to the decks of great warships
in the midst of void engagements, making for uniquely tense and exciting
scenarios. You can download the Warhammer 40,000
6th edition Zone Mortalis expansion from the Forge World website.
