Some battles happen in the sunshine, on grassy slopes amid pretty little farmsteads. Others... well, sometimes it's just mud mud mud, as far as your eye can see. Yet the terrain still has plenty of features. In a few places the mud is soft and heavy, slow going for people and twice as treacherous for vehicles. In others it's baked and cracked. Wispy swamp bushes might provide a little cover if you stay low, close to the ground, getting real friendly with the mud.
War is hell, and nothing proves it better than battles on mudflats. This beautifully recreated battlemat could easily be an estuary when the tide's out, with giant mosquitoes and swamp predators harrassing your fighter, mage and rogue. Or perhaps it's the battlefield at Agincourt in 1415, churned up by the French men-at-arms. Or part of the Somme in 1916, where the artillery and machineguns cut down thousands of soldiers in hours. Or the 427th layer of Hell, as your noble Star Marine stikeforce advances on the Devil himself. This terrain will make you dream of being back on the Desert Steppes and Grasslands battlemat sets, where you're not bogged down during open warfare. Even the Wastelands terrain will feel like a pleasant stroll for those who're fighting! For a real challenge on your tabletop this weekend, try mud.
