It can be a little intimidating to buy D&D terrain for your wargaming army. There are so many choices out there, what is the best option? What do you need to look for? How much should you spend?
Well, to start with, you should never run out of options when it comes to terrain. If you go into a gaming store and have a look around, you’ll find that there are literally hundreds of different kinds of terrain available to you. All of them will vary in price. So you have a lot of options to choose from, so you’ll have to make your decisions about what you want and which you don’t. For example, what terrain pieces would you like to see in your army? This will make a big difference when it comes to making the final decision on what you want to buy.
A good starting point is to think about what role your wargaming army plays. If you’re looking to play a small force of lightly armed, well equipped troops, then you won’t need very advanced and expensive terrain options. If you’re looking to fight head on with your larger and more technologically advanced troops, then you’ll want to invest in the best terrain you can afford. Your wargaming army will be a highly mobile one, and you want your pieces to be able to move quickly and engage your opponent’s units or cities without too much difficulty. So if you only have a few pieces and you want to quickly send them forward, this might be the way to go.
Now, there are two basic choices to make when it comes to D&D terrain. First, you can get the most expensive pieces possible. On the other hand, you can also buy cheap pieces and still make your wargaming experience all the more rewarding. You will need to consider your budget, and make sure that you are not spending too much money on just a few pieces. Remember, your goal is to make your army as strong as possible, and purchasing expensive pieces will only take you so far.
Another thing you will need to do before buying your terrain is determine which type of terrain you will be playing. This will help you determine the most appropriate types of terrain for your army and how many you will need to buy. For example, if you’re into a more realistic military scenario where your troops have to take cover from enemy soldiers and weather, then you’ll probably want to invest more in trees, rations, and other such items.
The next thing you will want to consider before investing is whether or not you want to buy several different types of terrain. For example, if you play on a farm, you can purchase small hills, fields, and forests. In addition, if you play on a large map such as Fall of Rome or Mojo River, you will also want to buy forested areas with trees and rocks. Again, this will give your game a sense of realism, and will provide your players with a number of options as they explore the terrain around them.
Once you have decided what type of terrain you will buy, you will want to start collecting and putting together your pieces. As with any collectible, you should always start out small and work your way up. This will allow you to accumulate enough pieces to build an army of your own. Make sure you save space in your boxes for your non-essential pieces; it’s best to leave these for later. Otherwise, you could overwhelm yourself and find yourself having to buy yet more terrain to finish up the set.
The final step in the process is to assemble the pieces you have bought and play with them. It’s important to remember that each piece you buy is an individual; therefore, you need to treat them accordingly. If you get a mud map, for example, you don’t want to try to use it to build an army unless you’ve thoroughly read the instructions. For those who don’t have a lot of experience with army building, it’s always a good idea to enlist the help of an experienced friend or family member to watch over your progress. Just be sure that they understand how to assemble the terrain and aren’t going to end up causing you any trouble.
