Building a Batman Board! – Part 1

Board-2
With a lot of the minis I have for the Batman Miniature Game painted and ready to play I thought it was about time to focus my attentions on getting a board, scenery and some scatter terrain ready.

So off I went to source my first batch of stuff, which there is a fair amount of choice available, but the first thing I wanted to get was some buildings. So I picked up a great warehouse set off the TrollTrader on ebay…

Warehouse-1

As well as the building itself, this set also comes with a selection of crates to fill it a little…

Warehouse-3 Warehouse-4

For only £26 it is an absolute bargain. It’s a fairly sizable building that I thought would be great as you can use the interior for the game as well. Here’s how it looks with some models…

I wanted to grab some stuff to fill it even more and really make it look like it’s in use, so picked up these…

Crates

I ended up getting 10 sets for only £23, and the picture above only shows the 2 I’ve built up so far! You can get these off ebay as well here.

Next up was a wee bit of scatter and the all important lamposts. While I’m aware that Knight Models do their own set of lampposts and sewers they are fairly pricey, so I wanted to get something that would make a good stand in for now. Again Trolltrader was the place to go…

I picked up 2 of these to make sure there is enough lampposts for any situation. It also gives the added advantage of a wee bit more general scatter 🙂

On the subjest of some scatter terrain I also picked up a couple of cars for the streets of Gotham…

Cars

These are the perfect size for games, and whilst they are a bit banged up, I think this works well in the context of the game.

Next up I’ll look at some more scatter, another building and a really cool car terrain piece 🙂

  1. Excellent looking start. I love those warehouse models. I envy people finding cars like that too. I never seem to have any luck at my local shops.
