Last weekend I took an opportunity to, ahem, correct a piece of terrain that I’d made a couple years ago. The offending item was from a batch of terrain I created using the old Scotia Grendel “Ruined Keep” resin kit. It’s a corner piece with crumbling walls that, unfortunately, didn’t have very much space for actual figures to stand.Here’s how it used to look.
See? Two barbarians is not enough, even for skirmish-sized games.
I actually did a blog post about it back in February 2015, and even then I characterized this as a cool terrain piece that just wasn’t very useful in actual gameplay.
Well then! Time to do something about it. Last weekend I was making some walkways and ladders for an upcoming game of Frostgrave, so I used some wood scraps to put together this little stubby walkway piece.
It looks suitably ruined, and it can easily connect to another adjacent piece of terrain by using some of my new ladders and walkways.
And it really adds a lot of gameable space to this terrain piece. As you can see from this photo, there’s enough room for a chaos warrior, a gnoll fighter, a man-at-arms, a barbarian and a wizard. Quite a crowd!
I hate adding onto “finished” projects, but in this case it was a clear upgrade. Now let’s get this sucker onto the battlefield!
