Battle Systems’ latest Kickstarter campaign to fund a set of Urban Apocalypse Terrain has no begun. If you’re looking for some terrain to fight over during a zombie invasion, post-nuclear war or Gotham night then this could be perfect for your gaming table…
This campaign is based around one central pledge that gives you a whole City Block packed with terrain. Here we have it all assembled and looking awesome with a range of different buildings, a road map and of course some scatter terrain to make it look abandoned…
As you can see you get quite a lot within that one pledge. I would have thought that the regular pledge for this wouldn’t have come with so much elevation but the different levels are all part of this. It also includes the terrain you see inside the buildings like tables, chairs, office supplies and more.
The guys at Battle Systems have even provided backers with a suggestion on how to pack all of this away…
“We recommend storing your terrain in sturdy plastic containers. We use nine litre containers that measure L 35cm x W 21cm x H 14cm. Please note that we do not provide containers.”
You can find a full run down of the components HERE.
If you’d like to see a few more close-ups of the battlefield that you’ll be fighting over then this gives you a good idea of some of its uses.
I personally love the idea of either using this for some kind of ‘Last Of Us’ style scenario where you’re trying to get from building to building without too much conflict and a load of stealth.
You could also do full on Zombie Mode from Call of Duty where you have to run and gun around the place killing the undead and boarding up windows.
One use that I think was particularly good was for the likes of the Batman Miniatures Game. The buildings should work well for its 35mm scale as well as 28mm and you could easily see Batman hanging out here at night – a veritable Arkham city block.
Stretch Goals & Add-Ons
The first Stretch Goal has already been lain out and it gives you extra wall sections which you can use to make more rooms with your main pledge package.
Suddenly you can start to make your city block a bit more claustrophobic. With additional walls allowing for more rooms you suddenly produce more bottlenecks for your models to fight over. As you can see above this is Free when unlocked and is added to your pledge automatically.
As well as that there are Add-Ons which gives you an additional Gaming Mat which is used as the basis for the terrain.
With that you could add another batch of terrain on top of it and of course as the campaign goes on I imagine you’re going to have access to more buildings allowing you to create larger areas of the city.
Will you be pledging for this?
