What this Tiles do?
Available in Three Themes
Trying to encompass the look and feel of every urban corner in every era and genre is impossible. Even more, Pedion tiles are intended for gaming, not for dioramas, however good they may look! So from all the options, we decided on three (3) generalised urban terrain Themes. We believe they will cover multiple periods and that the buildings and scenery placed on them will do the job of specialising the board's purpose, be it a historical or fantasy setting.
RUSTIC: The first theme will combine classic cobblestone roads with a 'dirt'/soil texture on non-paved areas, these spaces being reserved for buildings. The soil texture is enhanced with patches of green vegetation and there are extensive grass tufts on the road sides where the water usually collects. Intended to be neutral to suit any geographic location, the dirt colouration is completely new to our tiles.
The style works quite well on any Urban/suburban environment where the people may have used cobbles to pave some of their streets. It fits Rustic settlements, rural areas, villages, small Towns, even ancient cities if the residing civilization used stone on roads. By leaving open spaces in-between the houses, one can create smaller alleys and dirt paths branching away from the main cobblestone roads. There are no signs of a drainage system, so that the Style can be used in areas and eras where an underground one would not exist.
MEDIEVAL: Perhaps the most flexible theme, it can be used in many Wargame or RPG scenarios. This theme uses two different cobblestone patterns; a smaller recessed one for the roads and a larger embossed one for the building spaces. There is an irregularly shaped string of stones on roadsides to act as a primitive sidewalk and there are drainage grates implying the existence of basic sewers. There will be an option for each backer to include sewers and manholes or not. This theme can be used to represent the basis of multiple urban environments, especially medieval areas, fantasy settlements, ancient frozen citadels, and many European city centres up to the present day!
MODERN: For those gaming in the modern or futuristic era, we've designed a theme where the road surface is asphalt, the open areas are paved with large geometric stones, there are proper pedestrian sidewalks which protrude 1mm from road level and are 2.5cm (1") wide. There are drainage facilities, such as manhole covers. Road lines are possible but may limit the option of playing in different Scales. Wider road widths may be made available via stretch goals during the campaign.
The Four Basic Tile Designs
Each Urban Battlefields Set is comprised of a number of tiles in one of four (4) basic designs. These can be connected and arranged to create any layout you can think of. Apart from these Reward Set designs, more were made available through unlocking Stretch Goals.
- If you want beautiful and sturdy terrain for your games, which looks like a diorama but is designed for practical gaming
- If you want your terrain to fit in a Living Room cupboard and you do not have the space to store huge terrain pieces
- If you want to change the layout of your board and rearrange features to suit every battle and scenario, or even to expand it
- If you want your 6'x4' board to fit in a box and be lightweight enough to carry it to friends' houses or an afternoon in the club.
