Get To Da Thunderhawk! Forge World’s Mars Pattern Landing Pad

September 10, 2016 by brennon

Building on those Realm Of Battle tabletops out there that folks are building for Warhammer 40,000 the folks at Forge World have put together a Mars Pattern Imperialis Landing Pad which will work as a neat focal point for your battles.

The obvious focus for something like this is a last stand kind of scenario. You could have a unit of Space Marines or Astra Militarum having to try and hold the landing pad against waves of enemies as another part of the army with an important HQ element to it fights their way towards it.

Maybe this becomes the important element for a Kill Team game instead where one side is trying to plant explosives around the landing pad to take down a ship on it while the other is trying to stop them.

I’m a big fan of last stands and desperate moments of bravery in tabletop games so I reckon I’m going to go with the former idea. It’s certainly a big robust piece of terrain.

What do you think of it?
