4Ground has been working away on a few smaller colour kits based on the work of Laser Cut Architects and Things From The Basement. We start with some Sci-Fi goodies as we take a look at some Industrial Crates that could be used as objectives in games.

Each of the kits comes with a particular coloured banding that wraps around the top of the crate. You could fill these with all sorts of bits if you were looking to make them "used" but they would also work as a secret reveal during games. I like the idea of dotting them around the tabletop and the players having to open them to see if they've found the right spot on the map!

Of course, they also serve as good scatter terrain that your characters can hunker down behind. Set these up in an open area and allow your troops to hide behind them from incoming fire.

Bridge Defences & Shields

Stepping away from the Sci-Fi, we also have something Fantasy and a bit Historical too. We start with a Long Bridge which seems like it would be well suited for the era of the Samurai.

The bridge comes in that lovely red colour and features two removable ramps at either end allowing you to store it nice and easy. There is nearly always a bridge scenario in any given wargaming rulebook so this will no doubt see some use.

Tate Shields - Things From The Basement

You also have these Tate Shields which were transported by foot troops thanks to a handy pole. They were then arrayed into a portable wall for archers to hide behind and shoot at their foes. These have been designed as larger pieces that could be set up as defences on the battlefield. There were smaller versions of these too which could be carried around by soldiers and used in battle as more traditional shields.

What do you make of these new bits and pieces from 4Ground and their partners?
