The Hobbit; Escape from Goblin Town box set includes some scenery to help you recreate and play out missions in the starter booklet. I’ve just finished painting my Goblin Town scenery. Click more after the jump to see some different set ups with some of the models I’ve recently completed.
In the box set you get 4 ramps, 2 platforms, a goblin king throne, a baggage marker and a weapons marker. Games Workshop sell an add-on kit which costs £30 and that is the same as above minus the throne and markers. You do receive a single elevated walkway with ladder in the add-on kit though.
The amount of terrain in the starter box is enough to configure several different set ups. In these pictures I’ve come up with a few of my own, the starter booklet has 5 scenarios with 5 different terrain set ups.
The set ups above would be great to see the Goblins on the left and the Dwarves on the right. Lots of leaping to the opposite bridge and being pushed of the edge.
This is the close up of the Goblin King throne. It’s an old Dwarf four poster bed, strapped to rock face. I love the attention to detail of creating a hole in the seat and having a dung bucket underneath.
Finally, we have three shots above with some models on. I think the models look great on the terrain.
Who else is impressed with this terrain? Maybe you’ve bought a load for Mordhiem or Necromunda, or want to make a Warhammer fantasy Forest Gobin treetop village terrain table. Perhaps you think this terrain is a waste of money and you’re better off making your own from balsa wood strips. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
