BONUS: PREORDER THIS SET BEFORE AUGUST 31st 2019 AND GET A RESIN STONE WALL FREE!
You may pre-order the Pedion "SAGA" 4'x3' Battlefield Set, suitable for most SAGA Dark Ages & Crusades Skirmish Scenarios.
The Set is available in three Themes: Green Spring, Desert, and Winter.
It can be upgraded with all our add-ons, or be the basis for you to expand to a larger Set. You can choose to upgrade a plain tile with a Hill tile (Size M for Saga) for your scenarios, or even add 4 straight River Tiles for the "River Crossing" Dark Ages Scenario.
Each Tile is 30cm x 30cm (1' x 1') and 1cm deep; the majority are made from polystyrene and PVC, with Resin extra pieces.
Due to amount of pre-orders please expect a 4-month (and more) delivery time.
You will get 12 Pedion tiles:
The so-called plain tile will be the most common type of them all, lacking any complex terrain features. Its purpose is to represent open ground, which usually imposes no penalties or modifiers to unit movement. It can also act as a base for any extra terrain pieces (like buildings) the players already have and want to include in their game. This Type will be covered in flocked Grass (temperate, Spring) and will be found in all Pedion Battlefield Sets. New designs were made available through Stretch Goals.
Broken ground Tiles
These Pedion tiles can be used in a variety of ways. You can use them just to provide aesthetic variation between plain tiles (to avoid the "golf course" effect). But they can offer much more: they can be declared as broken/difficult ground in the battlefield, imposing any special modifiers and penalties your game system associates with this type of ground. Players can decide to declare as difficult ground the whole of the 30x30cm (1'x1') tile, or just inside the parts painted with a more earthen appearance. With the exception of some low rock features, Broken Ground tiles are again mostly flat to allow unit movement and any additional terrain object placement. They will be flocked/painted to correspond and blend with the rest of the battlefield type. For instance, the prototype Broken terrain tiles are painted to combine with the Plain Grass tiles. Learn more on Broken Ground and Grass Tiles in the development blog article.
There are three (3) discreet Hill tile designs: A full tile hill with an extra level piece, a 4/5 tile hill with an extra hill piece, and a 3/4 tile hill without extra levels.
As with all other Pedion tiles, the hills are actually part of the tile, rising seamlessly from the surrounding ground. However, keeping up with my modularity requirements, the hills consist of two pieces: the main hill tile, where the first elevation level rises, and a second, smaller "hill", which represents a second elevation level, that can be placed over the first one. So the players can either place a 2-level hill or two 1-level hills on their battlefield. The second level snaps magnetically over the main hill, staying in place. Each hill elevation rise is about 3cm (1.18"). More details and photos of hills on their development blog page.
