Were there terrain trays for sale separately in 5? Considering some with a few pieces, but not sure how necessary or how flexible in variety sets would be. Keeping an eye out for comments on received ones to gauge my own interest. Is it better to get edge pieces and fake the negative space or get the tray and make do with edges of negative space (only have Tablescapes)

Yes and I failed to add them (except in the sets). They work nicely for picking up and moving things and for making sure thing stay aligned with lots of negative space.

Terrain trays are a winner in my book. My wife wasn't expecting to like them, but they won her over, too. Definitely planning to pick up more when they go on sale.  They are very rigid, and the covering prevents you from slicing yourself, as happens with similar sheets we've tried to DIY from hardware stores. They form a very strong bond with the KS5 magnet pieces.

So the seam is actually where the edge of the tiles is designed to hide. We have the plastic grid add on, and it perfectly covers right up to the edge of the tray's cloth. It threw us at first also, but since the magnets are more in the middle of the 2x2, it works out.

Terain trays were a winner for me. No way I wanted as many lava tiles as I'd need to build some builds, and this way I can put lava or water or whatever I want right up next to dungeons or caves or whatever... We've got water, lava, acid, and dungeon stone now; KS6 will be adding cave stone, quicksand, festering floor, standing and running cave water, icy sheet and snowy rock, necrotic sludge and bottomless pit. That's a lot of options... Oh - and they carry setups for you.

I'm sure today trees are way beyond ne. I guess the big question I have is do I want to pay a ton for a minimal amount of pieces down the road, or just do some messy foam stuff that doesn't look as good but serves the purpose now and put the money to a 3d printer

i hope there will be an option for the tree tiles without the canopy. it will obstruct the view too much imho

I agree. While having one or two might be nice, practicality says that I won't use very many all that often. It is the same with the roofs from City Builder. They just don't see much gameplay.

OK, looks like the plastic grid was misleading.  When I put DOD pieces on, there is a 2mm x 2mm seam left if I squeeze the pieces together.  Talae is definitely right about a seam being present.  My bad.

 

Doesn't show up well in the photos I tried to take, though.  But in person, if you use one of the non stone grids and cover it all with pieces, the underlying acid or lava texture will peak through in the gaps and be noticeable, making it less sneaky if you plan to have an event where the floor collapses and leaves some unpleasant hazard behind.

Yeah, they messaged back pretty fast.

It's a bit more than I want to spend to figure out if I'll get anything, but... I think that's the way to go.

 

I was a late backer for KS IV -- just sent them an message request and they gave me access to the pledge manager.  However I can't guarantee they will do that again. 

 

But why wouldn't they?  They keep throwing things out at the end of the campaign.  How could they expect anyone to sort out the bombardment of info?

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
