Hello Brusheads! Co-host John here with another product review. In case you are wondering, my reviews are all of items I have (or would have) purchased and none are by any of our sponsors, so I can give you a fair review.
This time, the Muse On Mini’s flat terrain set. It sells for $40, though they do have a package deal with their zone pack at cons (that’s how I got mine).
As you can see it comes with two water features, two hills, two trenches and three forests. All of the pieces are of different size and shapes, aside from the trenches, which are the standard size. It’s all made from neoprene which is good, since they’ll grip and resist moving on most tables. In fact, they resist moving more than a lot of the normal terrain we use at the FLGS. They’re not as thick as a mousepad, probably half to a third as thick, so they’re light and bend easily. The printing on them is all well done, with no obvious mistakes or blemishes. I haven’t spilled anything on them, but they seem like they should be ok vs most drinks. The best feature about 2d terrian is that they all fit back in the bag they came in for easy transport. You could fit them in the top of your figure case or miniatures bag with no problem!Overall they seem to be of high quality.
Let’s get down their sizes! I’ve included Ashlynn, a Renegade, and a Hydra for scale.
The trenches are standard trench sized. Nothing crazy here, and a good call, so they’ll fit with any other trench made to the standard dimensions.
Water features. I like the variation (and the details on these), they have a good footprint without being obnoxious or inconsequential.
Hills. Decent variation, but they’re is only so much you can do with a hill. Size is pretty good, and no chance of falling off. They should be more than big enough for MK3, especially since you won’t want colossals getting that arcing fire bonus!
Trees! These are the strangest to me, but that’s because the amount of GW tree templates running around locally. These are generally smaller, with only the large one (pictured by itself) being close in size. I feel like this is a good choice, since these have areas small enough that a model may be able to move through it in a single turn or so.
Overall, I like all of these terrain pieces and fell the set gives you more than enough for a table, especially with some variation. You would want to supplement them with linear obstacles, though Muse no longer seems to make those, or the building and ruins set they make.
I’d give this set one shot of Kraken…just because we’d want to use 3d terrain whenever possible, but damn that stuff is hard to transport!
