Mission Statement / Observation

  • There is now no doubt that MODULARITY, STANDARDIZATION, AFFORDABILTY and SUSTAINABILITY are PIVOTAL to the survival of this hobby.

  • This is especially true in all things TERRAIN related. Examples:

    • Trees can no longer be made of green foam bits, lichen, stiff plastic or metal strands, tiny leaves on plastic branches, or anything requiring assembly:  All trees must be solid, CAST or formed (e.g. by 3D printing).​

    • Fences cannot be made of individual sticks glued together, or made such that bases are separate from the length of fence.  Each length must be a single solid piece OR made into segments that when glued to FABRIC one can make bordered fields going up hills and slopes.

    • Buildings can be made of paper and cardstock instead of being cast.  Rounded items like castle turrets however is another story.

    • Model bases should not ever be flocked or covered in any way, and only CLEAR BASES are the best option.

    • The size of all models other than the miniatures do NOT have to be in the same scale and in fact can be one to two scales SMALLER than the figures e.g. 22mm (1/72 scale) can use 1/87 or 15mm scale buildings, fences etc.

       

  • Models must be designed for adaptability, configurability and expandability.
