Build a Burgh better!.
The magazine has been sent a bundle of some of the newest releases from the superb, printed card scenery range by Battle Systems. First out of the pile is the Frontier Core Set: a sort of run down, space station (or large ship) gaming environment. This gets you an SF, 28mm ‘scale’gaming setting with no painting whatsoever. How do they achieve this?
Well, firstly the box contains a printed, 600mm square Neoprene Mat. It’s not too thick but lays nice and flat and is well detailed with corridors and so forth. Along side that are push-out, die-cut sheets with 54 assorted walls (featuring all sorts of hatchways and doors where applicable); plus various sized roof/floor tiles; and lots of ‘furniture’ – and I don’t just mean tables and chairs (though there are some of those too).you get struts; ladders; assorted gantries and railings; grav-elevators; three staircases; plus some machinery like CO2 scrubbers.you get a couple of conduits; some storage lockers, lots of door ways and airlocks plus a force field door; a pair of large wall displays; large and small cargo crates; consoles; a command table; control panels; five assorted chairs; wall lockers and work stations along with a reactor chamber and a couple of bunks.
The system is printed on very heavy card and held together with a wealth of grey plastic clips which means that the layout can be disassembled and put back together for storage and transportation with minimal fuss. Would I want to add some surface detail? Possibly. But you really don’t have to. This is just perfect for another of xenomorph hunt! Highly recommended.
