In spite of having been a gamer for over 25 years, I have always lacked decent terrain. When I was a kid, we didn't care. When I played in a club, I used the club terrain. Even now, my regular gaming nights are at GW's Warhammer World, and there is plenty of terrain on offer (even if it is a bit homogenous). One of my ambitions for 2016 is to rectify this. I already made some terrain last year, but this year I'd like to increase the amount I have with the ambition of creating a fringe world settlement, complete with a range of buildings and warehouses, landing pad and hopefully a larger administrative building.
To get back into the swing of terrain, I've been putting a couple of painting sessions aside over the last few weeks to paint up some smaller scatter pieces to 'dress' the larger set when complete. To my mind scatter terrain is hugely important - it helps to create a believable environment for your characters to inhabit. Tables without scatter terrain can look rather bland and unrealistic.
