A brand new set of wargaming terrain will be up for pre-order from Warcradle Scenics next month. You can dive into the Fantasy village of Estun and build up a peaceful Norse-inspired location for your heroes to suddenly make very chaotic.

Estun Village - Warcradle Scenics

Estun Village // Warcradle Scenics

The Estun Village has been designed to be used for a variety of Fantasy wargames, be they skirmish or mass battle. They would be decidedly awesome for the likes of Frostgrave, moving away from the ruined stonework of Felstad but they work exceedingly well for The Elder Scrolls: Call To Arms.

Estun Church - Warradle Scenics

The buildings would be a good match for locations like Riverrun in the lands of Skyrim where Call To Arms takes place. Some of the more significant buildings would then work for more expansive locations like Whiterun, hidden behind towering stone walls.

Estun Tavern - Warcradle Scenics

Estun Tavern // Warcradle Scenics

The collection breaks down into the Blacksmith, Church, Saw Mill, Dwelling, Watch Tower, Tavern and Market Stalls. All of these pieces are pre-coloured so you just need to slot/stick them together and get them ready for the tabletop.

Estun Blacksmiths - Warcradle Scenics

Coming in around the right scale for a good array of different games, these would also work for all those Norse-inspired Fantasy wargames out there. You could even use them for games of Warhammer Age Of Sigmar, offering up a different take on the locations you can visit in the Realm Of Beasts.

Estun Watchtower - Warcradle Scenics

Estun Watchtower // Warcradle Scenics

One of my favourite pieces is the Watchtower. I like the fact that it would dominate the battlefield and there are all manner of cinematic skirmishes that could take place on those steps! There is also plenty of space on the top gaming-wise to stick your archers.

I also appreciate the smaller set of terrain pieces like the Market Stalls.

With all of that scatter terrain, you have some places for your warriors to hide when they come under fire. You could even make the terrain a bit more interactive and have it so you can chuck crates at people if you're a little more swol!

Estun Long Hall

The BIG additional release alongside the rest of the village is the Estun Longhall. This is a monolithic piece of terrain that would be a fitting setting for a clash between Beowulf and Grendel.

Estun Long Hall Interior - Warcradle Scenics

It does come with a detailed interior (see above) and again, all of this is pre-coloured/painted making it a solid option for people to pick up and add to their gaming tables. I like that you also get neat additional pieces alongside the hall itself like the banner pole that sits before the entrance to the hall.

All of this terrain is going to be available when June rolls around and if you're into your Viking/Norse wargaming then I would certainly consider giving this a closer look.

Even if you're not doing something traditionally Fantasy, you could use it for something a bit weird too. Imagine using it for a Midsommer-esque location where a cult still practises "the old ways" and your investigators have been sent in to find out where a bunch of youngsters have disappeared.

Are you going to be snapping this terrain up?
