Terrain garnish

I just recently finished playing a game and was cleaning up, thinking this is a lot of extra work removing a lot of small terrain items that are merely decorative i.e have no effect on game play. But I think it is worth it. I know some players don't like it, I cant tell you how many times I've heard players saying something like, "can we get rid of these"

I think it makes the game look so much better. I find it makes the game much more visually appealing. I keep thinking "I need to get/make more" or "I should throw some paint on my fleece tablecloth" to break up its monochromacity.

Here are some before and after shots.

Here is all the terrain layed out that has an effect on game play, tables looks uninspiring

Here is the same area with garnish added, I think it looks much more inviting.


Here are some close ups of the battle on said table.

  1. I agree with you Rich, it makes the table look so much beter. I like to refer to it as character pieces. A well, a statue along the road, road signs, a old broken tractor and old wagons standing in the fields or farm yards. Just so much more character so continue.
