There is a new Forgeworld expansion for Warhammer 40k hitting today. Zone Mortalis. Here is an excerpt from the rules, and the link to them. They look at first glance to be a lot of fun.

The following rules expansion for Warhammer 40,000 deals with some of the most savage arenas of combat conceivable, the battlefields the Codex Tactica Imperialis refers to as ‘Zone Mortalis’ — the fatal ground. Such zones be they the contested decks of a void warship, tangled mine works, lightless underhives, the prison-vaults of sundered fortress citadels, labyrinthine industrial sewer systems and sacred catacombs, all have a confluence of factors in common such as close-confinement, limited access for attack or escape routes, as well as treacherous environments, which make them murderous venues for warfare.

    1. how is it better?
      its fat heavy resin that sometimes comes warped... pain to work with
      and its not cheap either

      pastik is much better IMO
      and this kind of terrain idea is old... GW used to sell sprues from Necromunda that would build you the same kind of deal... just way cheaper

    2. It rarely comes warped...never had any problems with Forge World...read the product description first, please, this stuff is hollow...hell of a lot more detail than current Games Workshop scenery!
      The thing is, although Games Workshop used to sell that Necromunda stuff, they don't anymore, and I would rather have a modular board in 12" square blocks than can be arranged in just about any way, as opposed to a clunky 72" by 48" board in 24" square blocks. The Games Workshop one can't be assembled in so many ways, and it's harder to store.
      Also, this is an indoor piece of scenery, with a floor.

  2. Ya but it'll cost you the life of your firstborn to afford FW terrain. :P in just waiting for them to release more necron stuff.

  3. The rules are a nice extension of the Boarding Action rules from IA-9. Should be lots of fun.

  4. Actually $180 for a 2x2 modular resin board isn't bad considering that their large scale Imperial Space Marine model is the same price for waaaaayyyyy less resin. Though, I can't imagine buying a full 4x6 table worth - never mind the cost, where the hell would you keep it all?

    1. Yeah I think boarding actions would generally be on a smaller board than 4x6, most likely. 4x4 would be possible, or 6x2

  5. This is really cool but another option would be those of us who have the space hulk board just using that for these games :D

    1. Or you can make your own like I'm gonna do

    2. or use starquest, necromunda or any of the other non GW games that are like this

      Delete
    3. Agree with all of you.

      Didn't realise their was a starquest board/terrain, thanks for that Anonymous!

      Still, there is no denying the coolness of Forge Worlds board. But I wont get it.
