Urban Rise Supports are designed to go underneath your urban tiles, and raise them uniformly by 3cm, to a total height of 4cm. Thus they emulate different levels in the same city. Their sides have the same stone texture, to give the impression of built up, artificial structures supporting the building over them. The height of 3cm keeps them slim enough to store easily away.
The Urban Slopes & Rises System is Pedion's way of trying and emulate differences in urban terrain elevations. You can now create uphill/downhill streets, or different height levels for your city blocks. It certainly is not omnipotent, and we still have to cope with the realities of wargaming. But it truly enhances the cityscape, going above and beyond what a simple cloth mat board could do.
The elevation system utilises two (2) special addons to work: Slopes and Rises The main idea is that you will NOT need extra tiles to emulate slopes and rises; you can use your urban tiles from your Set rewards, and arrange the addons differently each time.
You can join slopes with rises, therefore you can create transitions inside the city environs. Another way to "join" raised tiles with ones at the original height (1cm) are Stone Stairs.

- If you want to change the layout of your board and rearrange features to suit every battle and scenario, or even to expand it
- If you want your 6'x4' board to fit in a box and be lightweight enough to carry it to friends' houses or an afternoon in the club.
