City Terrain
by Robert Provan

Here’s my latest scenery project, built using the brilliant plans from Matakishi's Tea House as featured in the CoZoChron links page.

I chose to make an urban residential/retail district (rather than commercial/ manufacturing) because the buildings are smaller in floorplan, and have more windows.

This makes the table look better (because the buildings are not so box-like) and provides a LOT more firing positions and tactical opportunities.

The town is sort-of-modular. The buildings fit together in different ways so the town plan can vary from game to game.

The buildings have removable roofs and upper storeys. This both gives interior access and allows me to omit upper storeys to change the skyline.

I tried to give a good 'mix' of heights, so the buildings would look different, yet on the whole, they still look like they belong together, rather than just being a bunch of stuff thrown onto a table.

When set out as above, the table seems close, with short lines-of-sight, yet when the bell tower is placed in the centre, the table opens up, and the centre becomes a killing field.
