New Sci Fi Terrain

It's been pretty hot here the last few days so yesterday I decided to buy myself a cooling fan for the office. A quick trip down to the local retail park saw me get fixed up with a nice big tower fan. But while I was down there I decided to pop into the 'Pets at Home' store for some new scifi terrain. Trust me I haven't been driven mad by the sun. I've seen a few posts around the 'net where people have been using aquarium features as alien terrain. So I thought I'd have a look and see what they had.

As a bonus they were having a 3 for the price of 2 sale and after a bit of browsing I decided on these three pieces. First up is a ruined Greek style temple as shown in the picture below. The models shown in the pictures are a Rebel Minis 15mm Mech and some 15mm infantry.

I suppose this temple could be used on any 15mm or even 28mm board as it's the least alien of the three. Perhaps as part of a Strange Aeons or Malifaux game.

Next up is the skull. This is obviously too big for a normal 15mm game but perfect for the remains of some giant alien beast!

Last up is a piece described as a volcano but it works well as either an alien rock formation or some kind of alien plant.

All the pieces come prepainted and are made from a durable looking hard resin. The total cost of the three pieces was £10.99 which I think is a pretty good deal considering their size. I may even go back for some more.


  1. Aquarium pieces make great eterrain (I use them for HOTT strongholds). However I find that all pet shops in the area have the same stock at any given time and that once a supply of a given piece has gone it's really gone; the retailers get a different batch of designs. So the rule is that if you see something good, buy it - you may not get the chance again :)
