This set consists of 12 handpainted "Green Spring"-themed terrain Tiles. These 30cm x 30cm (1'x1') Tiles connect magnetically and can be configured to create any Fantasy (or historical) board. You can arrange (and expand) them to simulate multiple battlefield layouts to fit any size of playing area, to suit each of your games. And, since they take up minimal space, you can store them in a small living-room cupboard.
Due to amount of pre-orders please expect a 4-month (and more) delivery time.
You will get 12 Pedion tiles:
The so-called plain tile will be the most common type of them all, lacking any complex terrain features. Its purpose is to represent open ground, which usually imposes no penalties or modifiers to unit movement. It can also act as a base for any extra terrain pieces (like buildings) the players already have and want to include in their game. This Type will be covered in flocked Grass (temperate, Spring) and will be found in all Pedion Battlefield Sets. New designs were made available through Stretch Goals.
Broken ground Tiles
These Pedion tiles can be used in a variety of ways. You can use them just to provide aesthetic variation between plain tiles (to avoid the "golf course" effect). But they can offer much more: they can be declared as broken/difficult ground in the battlefield, imposing any special modifiers and penalties your game system associates with this type of ground. Players can decide to declare as difficult ground the whole of the 30x30cm (1'x1') tile, or just inside the parts painted with a more earthen appearance. With the exception of some low rock features, Broken Ground tiles are again mostly flat to allow unit movement and any additional terrain object placement. They will be flocked/painted to correspond and blend with the rest of the battlefield type. For instance, the prototype Broken terrain tiles are painted to combine with the Plain Grass tiles. Learn more on Broken Ground and Grass Tiles in the development blog article.
There are three (3) discreet Hill tile designs: A full tile hill with an extra level piece, a 4/5 tile hill with an extra hill piece, and a 3/4 tile hill without extra levels.
