Terraclips Terrain

This weekend I finally took the shrinkwrap off of my Terraclips terrain set that I bought over two years ago.  I knew that as soon as I took it out of the box, I would never get it back in -- it would explode into 10 times its original volume, which meant, where do I store this stuff?

The new momentum that my game group has, playing Malifaux, tempted me to throw caution to the wind.  I played with my new "Lego toys for adults" and loved it.



The artwork on these tiles is fantastic.  Just about every piece is different, and it's loaded with little details, like spilled applesacks, leaking pipes, rubbish, sewer grills, etc.

The design is very impressive, too.  Very well engineered, in terms of fit, versatility, rigidness, and compatibility with miniatures bases.  I'm surprised we don't see more of these, regularly being used, say, in the game stores.

I have another box set, the one with the buildings.  Now I wish I had picked up the sewers set, as well.

Turns out I have some containers that hold these few assembled pieces perfectly, along with the remaining spares.

So glad to finally be able to add the third dimension to my skirmish games.  This will probably motivate me to work on my custom-made canal district.
