We've recently rethought our policies here at ThereWillBe.Games regarding coverage...

No more insulation foam and aquarium plants - Monster Terrain is an excellent "easy" terrain option.

I realize pre-painted stuff is always expensive, but this stuff seems really expensive. A relatively sparse grouping of 5 stands for $180 makes my eyes water a bit. Then it ratchets up to 8 stands for $280. And to my eyes the pieces themselves look... good... but not great. Kinda blocky, kinda plasticky, kinda not particularly naturalistic.

So although it isn't pre-painted, i think I would go with Mantic's various Terrain Crate boxes. Cheaper, sharper sculpts, and you get a lot more for your $$$.

I also think that this is very expensive. I understand though, the pros of having such trees, with most gaming trees have their flocks falling around. Their size is also massive (that is, correct in scale).

However, consider this: For $20-$30 bucks, you can get 25 trees, 3-6 inch high. Of course, this is the flocked pipe cleaner type. Make your own bases, and you fill most of your table with trees.

I agree this takes work (basing the trees also), but $40 for a copse of trees, they'd better be indestructible.

On hills, for $115 I can get this:

Sure, not as climbable as the one you reviewed, but they looks a lot nicer.

One thing I totally agree with you though, with GW moving away from standard grass mat, there's been a lack of easy, accessible generic terrain in the market.
