Grishnakh's Custom Terrain

Posted January 6th, 2012 at 01:55 PM by truth

Grishnakh is a long time member of heroscapers.com and has often used his mounds of artistic talent to help us spice up our heroscape battlefield visuals. Below is a copy and paste of the first page in his epic Interactive Terrain thread that has been around for 6 YEARS!! He's revisited it lately with new stuff. Check it out:

Welcome to GCT - Grishnakh's Custom Terrain


NEW!!!

Interactive Terrain Features - ITFs!!




In this edition of Grishnakh's Custom Terrain (or CGT) I present a new and different take on battlefield objects. I call these objects "Interactive Terrain Features". These rules were designed to be used not only with C3G's custom superhero figures, but also with the Heros of Star Wars customs and classic 'Scape.

Not only is this a set of rules to play my first wave of ITFs with, it’s also a set of guidelines you can use to create your own battlefield objects. If you have an existing item, or have something that you'd like to create, it should be a simple matter to plug them into my rules. In fact I look forward to what other people in the community can come up with!

Most of the information you will need to play my specific ITFs with is located on the individual cards for each item. I've put them all into a single download for ease of use.

So thanks for checking this out! I hope you find it both usable and fun. My plan is that Grishnakh’s Custom Terrain is something that I can continue to add to and to build on in the future. In fact I'm currently working on a new set of cards which will include Tanker Trucks, Burning Wreckage, Bulldozers and much more!

SuperScape Buildings and Rules

As many of you know I’ve been creating custom terrain for Heroscape since it first came out. I think it’s really cool that so many of you have taken the plunge, used my tutorials, and flocked your own hex terrain, made trees, created lava, etc.

Since the era of FanScape is now upon us and no new, official terrain is being created, I have decided to branch out in an entirely new direction and attempt to fill that void. I’ve been inspired by the many brilliant custom figures being currently created. (There’s such a wealth of creativity in this community. Hasbro had no idea what they had.) To be perfectly honest I think that the custom figures that the C3G team have been creating have provided a breathe of fresh air into a game that was threatening to go stale for me. Playing with the C3G figures jump started my interest in creating new terrain for these Superheroes to climb onto, move around, fly over, etc. This booklet (and its accompanying pdf files) have been the result of that interest.

So thanks for checking this out! I hope you find it both usable and fun. My plan is that Grishnakh’s Custom Terrain (or GCT) is something that I can continue to add to and to build on in the future. In fact this is just part one of a two part project. Part two, Interactive Terrain Features, is currently being play tested - so stay tuned!

WOW . . . 58 pages of tutorials . . . a lot of hard work went into producing stuff. I guess you kind of like this game a little bit, huh? Seriously Grishnahk, congratulations on being formally recognized and THANK YOU for sharing your brilliant thoughts and beautiful artwork with us less fortunate and unworthy fans of Valhalla.

I didn't have a very successful run at cardstock terrain, but I recently tried to build one of your buildings. It isn't perfect, but it looks much more study than what I built from another set. One of these days, I might just get some materials and build some more.

The Interactive Terrain rules look interesting as well.

Two thumbs up. My only complaint is that I wasn't allowed to take over Grish's entire project and work "with" him.

Just kidding. Glad you got all your work out there for the world to see.

Also, congratulations on the loooooooongest front page ever.

I don't know. Bat's interview might give this a run for it's money. Now I have to check.

Geez Louise, that Bat guy can go on and on, and I know because he has my phone number and calls me when he is bored, usually while walking the dog.
