Becuase it was designed that way.
I/we play mostly RPGs or skirmish games (DDM and SWM) based off of the d20 rule set, which uses squares of movement, and not a ruller to measure movement, and figures take up n# of squares. A Medium creature (human) is 1 sqaure, a Large is 4(2x2) Sqaures, and a Huge 9(3x3), so i wanted a nice looking grass terrain object that reflects the rules system i use.
We tried using non grided terrain in the RPG and in the skirmish and it screwed with the heads of too many of the players...
It actually took a long time to figure out how to purposefully make a grid on the grass that looked good and showed up weel. So the reason it is looks that way is becuase i wanted it to look that way.

Dark Forces
Dimensions 46x30
Era: Rebellion

This scene is envisioned as almost a level from a game, either a level in the Dark Forces Series, or an RPG version of such. The “players” start in the main room and have to work their way through the Testing center for the Dark Troopers. There are a few of the RPG metal based figures to chose from to go through the level, the human female fringer, and human male scout, as well as a soldier, and Dressellian Commando. But heading into the level are Kyle, a Devronian Soldier, a Rodian, and a Rebel Officer.
Multiple storm trooper types, Imperial Officers, technicians (using Alderaan Troopers) to reach the various testing rooms. Dark Troopers from Phase I to III are being tested, some against Elite members of the Imperial Forces, a few Dark Jedi, various Imperial Guards, the Emperor’s Hand, and Noghri. At the final test of the Dark Trooper III high level Imperials look on to observe the trials.


Terrain Elements are Dwarven Forge, Hirst Arts, Grendel/Scotia, Grendel/Mega Minis, Griffon Studios, JR Miniatures, Ainsty/Old Crow Models, Antenociti Workshop, and Homemade items.

er not sure, other than er almost all of them i have ;) .
i have the Tile System map on another computer, at some point (most likely Monday) I'll post the report, which has the breakdown of all the parts.
This one has already been taken down.
There is another Sci-Fi set up in it's place that is almost finished, have it 3/4 done in set up, including much of the props, just need to add the figures.
Hope to finish that one after breakfast tomorrow, and post the pics in the afternoon.

That will be the 6th i put in. I have 2 more i know i want to do, but waiting to do one of them till the new DoE set comes in. And trying to finish the terrain for one of them. I hope to get that done on Saturday and Sunday if the weather is good.

Trying to do 2 from each era atleast.

Rebel Cruiser
Dimensions 48x30
Era: Rebellion

This scene takes place onboard a Corellian corvette CR90 during the rebellion; the ship is running valuable supplies to wide spread rebel bases after the Battle of Yavin. Trying to capitalize on the success the rebellion has recently had, they are trying to gain new members. Delicate negotiations are going on between high-ranking members of the Rebel Alliance, and two other resistance groups, Ackbar of the Mon Calamari, and Nien Nunb of the Sullustan. Princess Leia hopes to sway them to join the Rebellion, during the meeting Ackbar presents the plains for a new star fighter that can increase the firepower of the Rebel Alliance.
Things are looking good, until during the negotiators the ship is attacked by Imperial troops. The Heroes of Yavin, Luke, Han, Chewbacca, Wedge, Dash and many Rebel troops defend the ship from the boarding Imperial Troops..


Terrain Elements are Dwarven Forge, Grendel/Mega Minis, Hirst Arts, Griffon Studios, JR Miniatures, Ainsty/Old Crow Models, Antenociti Workshop, Micro Machines, and Micro Machines Action Fleet, and Homemade items.

Wow!

That is some of your BEST work, GS! Fantastic stuff! Love the use of the curved floor "fillers" as buttresses in the corridors. And loved the use of the SF Beta forceshield doors as viewscreens, too. Great to see all those troopers facing each other down, really dynamic shots of the fight (but you know me, I'm biased towards "mini's eye view" type shots...)

Great stuff. Man, if you don't win this, I honestly don't know who should...

I second the nod for the curved floor pieces - it makes for a neat way to jazz up the corridors.

This really is fantastic! I like the engineering room with the T.Griffon pieces. Furthermore, I love all the classic stormies. Killer stuff GS!

I love mini eye view shots as well, just sometimes i find it hard to pull off with my camera. There were some good options for it in this one so I went with it.

L and Kradlo I can't take the credit for the curved floors, IO did it some time back, and the force fields on the sides. The force fields on the side was the only way i could figure out to get something that took up most of the corridor with the Doors. I thought about doing two of the regular doors side by side, but i thought the forcefiled doors led a more intersting color and broke the silver up a bit.
