Home terrain

It's dark. It's grim. There's a big eye that's terrorizing. Suck it, Sauron!

Help me out here people. I'm looking to finally complete some terrain at my house. I'm looking for some kits to assemble and paint, plastic or resin (none of that MDF shit). Aside from the GW terrain what else is there that people recommend?

So I think most MDF stuff looks pretty lousy, but there are two manufacturers who make genuinely great MDF terrain:
https://www.4ground.co.uk/
And
http://deathraydesigns.com/

Here's some shots of 4ground's stuff I got when I was at Salute a few months ago:

Galeforce 9 has these "battlefield in a box" things which are prepainted resin terrain. Much of it's for Flames of War, but not all of it:

Unfortunately, their "gothic" line, tailor made for 40k, has been out of production for a while. I ordered some from them back in February, and when I hadn't heard anything after a month I asked what the status of the order was. They said they were in pre-production for another run, although their website doesn't show anything for the Gothic stuff at all right now. Warstore and Amazon often have their stuff available too.

Puppetswar has some great terrain:

I really want their cathedral for my Skullingrad table.

Mason, I have the following, takin' up fuckin' space:

6 Pegasys Platformer sets
6 Pegasys Chemical Plant sets

approx. 2 feet of muddy, swampy river in flexible rubber sections

a big tote chock full of Dorka's city fight bitz, maybe from Liddic?

Happy to contribute any of it to the cause, if you can use it.

Ron,
That sounds great. Bring it on over and we'll build it all up.

Campbell,
Thanks, the Puppets War stuff looks like it will work for what I want. I also found the Mantic Battlezones which look to be pretty decent.

Oh yeah, the Mantic stuff isn't bad. It's not quite the grimdark aesthetic I like, but it's good looking terrain.

Mace, I'm doing a PuppetsWar order early next week if you want in.

Aren't I the magnanimous one, today?

Oh man, I'd steal 1-2 of those chemical sets if you're offering....

http://www.deepcutstudio.com/product-category/terrain-tiles/ has mousepad material terrain pieces. The woods and hills don't do much for me, but the rivers and roads look promising (if the green scheme matches your table).

Thanks Dan, but those don't fit my table, but the rivers are pretty sweet. I bought one of the mousepad mats from a company in Poland, I forget which one, but it's a city table with a chaos star in the middle.

Thanks Campbell, that's the place I got the mat from. Actually, it's this very one http://www.gamemat.eu/our-products/batt ... square/us/
