Green and pleasant: a review of Tablescapes Rolling Fields tiles

The Rolling Fields set of tiles from Tablscapes provides for a traditional wargames table. The terrain is relatively even and good for moving models around on, especially individual models grouped into units or regiments. There is within this a fair amount of variation with the tiles.

A few tiles feature a dry river or steam bed. With patience and water effects you would make this a flowing body of water.

The tiles still manage to keep a level of detail that allows you to paint in some variety should you wish to.

The Rolling Fields are probably the most versatile of the Tablescapes sets. With the right paint job these can represent verdant fields, a dried and cracked desert, an ash waste, a radioactive hell-hole, or anything else that comes to mind.

Here, some enemies face off across a stream.

Or perhaps there is a common foe to battle instead?

Another test of importance for me is how well Rolling Fields tiles go with Forgotten City tiles. Quite well, as it turns out.

The miniatures above are: Rohan warriors from Games Workshop; some classic metal miniatures from Games Workshop; Celtic warriors from Warlord Games, and a fire elemental from Bones.

Rolling Fields are available now from Secret Weapon as a set of 24 tiles. This review looked at the 16-tile set which was part of the Kickstarter.

    Very nice, kinda wish I’d have found that before I ordered from Hotz Mats :/ Have you seen anything from Deep Cut Studios??

      I hadn’t heard of deep cut until you linked to them! For miniatures, I like my terrain to be three-dimensional, but I see those mats as a good base for terrain like streetscapes or the Terraclips range.

      I love the space mats for Star Wars X-Wing and view a 3×3 mat as a must for that game.

    While the tiles themselves are very nice, I am very disappointed in the fact they have no storage/transport boxes. I have spent alot of time painting mine and find that during transport they inevitably suffer damage. Personally I would recommend Games Workshop’s simply because they come with a bag.
