The Tabletop Comes Alive With Micro Art’s Hive Terrain

September 14, 2015 by brennon

The very ground comes alive with two more Hive terrain pieces from Micro Art Studios. The first of these is the Hive Devourer and the second the Hive Lurkers giving you an idea of what lays beneath the surface of these infested worlds…

Hive Devourer

As with most of their big range the terrain is made of Hardfoam meaning that it is pretty easy to put the big pieces together and get painting. This particular piece, the Devourer, actually comes as three different parts of the ‘maw’ and a base which looks like this…

Hive Devourer (Components)

You could even come up with an insert for the base of this ‘Devourer’ where you fill it with slime and ichor if you weren’t looking for big tall terrain in your games. Then, when the maw comes out you stick those big ol’ toothy bits in.

Hive Lurkers

The Lurkers look like some rather strange pieces of alien terrain but when you take a closer look you’ll see those tell tale teeth and some beady eyes bearing out from the earth. I would not want to have to come up against these kind of creatures, with the board coming alive around me.

This gives me loads of awesome ideas for a narrative board where Space Marines (or another faction) are taking on an infested Tyranid world. You could have so many traps everywhere as even the tabletop wants them dead.

What do you think of their new pieces?
