You seen this, Fell?

I saw this and thought it might be right up your alley.  I've heard they take some time to put together, but they're great for building your own board...and cheap to boot!

wow that's cool and for only $10 for the prints.  That might actualy make me want to invest and play hero-clix.  You sould see if you can get some review copies Fell.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

Not bad. They also have medieval and ancient stuff. I wonder if the castle battlements can hold the weight of a warhammer regiment? I suppose one could use wood to reinforce it.

Excellent as stand ins for proper scenery... especially if your office has a colour printer.

For dungeons, check out that link i posted to dwarfen forge... they have awesome dungeon scenery. Cannot remember the link now.

I am tempted by buying (or using kazaa to simply illegally download... im evil like that) the spaceships one. It is the right scale for warhammer 40k, and you can have hugely cool games, such as immitating space hulk, or having a vicious boarding action.

If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

That would be so cool for Champions!!!

Actually I can think of about a million games that would be good for.

That's some pretty cool stuff. Let's see how interested they are in a review or two.

The more I look at what they've done and how they've done it, the more impressed I am. You could use these things in almost any game, be it tabletop or RPG or what have you.

I remember a few years back when they started they released some "Village on the Cheap" stuff for free.  I downloaded it and used it for Mordheim.  

On the same note, WOTC has a bunch of fantasy paper terrain free to download.  They made it for Chainmail and there's some pretty good stuff.

The WOTC stuff is ok, but I think these Microtactics sets are more versitile.

I don't know... The WOTC stuff is quality and its free.  It is really genre specific though so may not be of much use depending on your game.  The Microtactix stuff is versatile, of slightly lesser quality, and costs a little.

It all depends on your point of view, I guess.

Not really, I was planning to buy it anyway. I wanted something for a champions game Im planning... soooo
It was a logical choice and now I dont have to buy a ton of buildings to keep around.

It came out of my $150 Every 2 month RPG fund.

Sometime around July Im going to buy Champions and Star Hero. And maybe Microtactics Cheapsville USA.
