Check out this Excellent Wargaming Terrain Kickstarter

Worldsmith Industries is doing a third production run, and it's up on Kickstarter to fund materials for the production molds, resin, and all that. The first two Kickstarters were both successful and fulfilled ahead of schedule, and this one looks to be no different. The first two Master molds are already made, Jim's got time set aside to do the casting, it's just waiting on the funding for raw materials.

I didn't have the cash at the time to back his first two efforts, but I've seen his products in person, and they're great. The price points are all kind of high, but that's because they're all pretty large pieces.  Looking around, they seem comparable in cost to other resin terrain sets of similar size, and Jim's work is some of the best I've seen.

It's all masonry-type stuff, but given 40K's aesthetic, that works just fine, especially if you add a few touches to grimdark it up. The core design, tho, is for Ranked Combat games like 9th Age or Kings of War. As such, almost all of them are set up so that the major chunks can be removed to allow Units to move freely across the area, and then accurately replaced.

One unfortunate caveat: due to how international shipping prices from the US have skyrocketed lately, he isn't offering international sales at this time. For those of you in the States, tho, definitely go give it a look.
Until next time, y'all have a good one now, y'hear!
