Hi I am looking for A miniature game that comes with it's own terrain, and miniatures, or something that has a site that I can order terrain/miniatures for,

I was after any theme except witches/zombies/vampires, or orcs/elves/trolls/wizards.

Thanks really appreciate your help.


I already own HeroScape, but I was looking for something that was a bit more realistic like the following.

Most of those links don't work for me.

I think most miniature games don't come with terrain, unfortunately. Have you considered using your Heroscape terrain for any of the other miniature games that have been suggested to you?

None of those links work for me, but based on the blogs you chose in general, what you see is probably not available as a finished commercial product. You can make them yourself or hire someone to make them for you.

you might want to try Necromunda from GW while no longer in avaliable the original base set came with a couple of dozen build your own miniatures (mostly just glueing arms on) as well as some pretty sweet cardboard and plastic sci-fi terrain

you could try ebay for old boxes m'b?

alternativly these guys stuff would work pretty awesomely i would say http://www.sarissa-precision.co.uk/store/system8/ and seems modualrish

these guys recently reopened after a LONG hiatus and have terrain suitable for alsorts of things http://ainstycastings.co.uk/

are you exactly wedded to the idea of one game, one company for everything?

i know that you said no fantasy but I would persoanly give recomendations of gw's mordheim game, like necromunda the game originally came with a whole load of combination plastic and card terrain and a couple dozen build your own miniatures (much more free form than necromunda) and has a lot of stuff on ebay (up to and including whole base boxes,

that said you could get the rulebook for free from the gw sight (or cheap on ebay) and pick up whatever miniatures you hvae (often mordheim gangs are sold painted and complete on ebay) For terrain I would look at this sight http://www.davesgames.net/ I have seriously considerded selling all my mordheim terrain and replaceing it with the ruinous buildings from dave's sight, also he recently put a couple of street maps which would do very well for a mordheim game,

well didnt mean to preach and i am in no way affialated with GW just those 2 games came from a time I liked the company

hope these ideas have been of help to you

dave

Someone mentioned Necromunda above. There was one iteration of the game that had some basic modular tiles and floor sections. You could mock up some good stuff with those.


Mordheim: City of the Damned came with terrain as well, but you had to put it together. goo
