These days there is a wealth of terrain made specifically for Infinity. The vast majority of the terrain is MDF, but there are other materials used such as hard foam, plastics and resin. It’s worth looking around to see what terrain you like the look of, how user friendly it is and of course how much it will set you back.  After all if you want a full table of terrain, the cost soon adds up!

Having so many manufactures of terrain you have a great deal of choice, but with choice comes hard decisions. For example would you be better off using Micro Art or Bandua scenery? Do you go for practical gaming use over visual looks? Well it’s tricky to get an overview of the benefits and negatives of all the different manufactures, mainly because most people (in my experience) don’t purchase from multiple manufactures. Well to help you, MiniWargaming have produced a video series. Its well worth checking this video series out, as it covers the major Infinity terrain manufactures Micro Art StudioBandua and Warsenal.

I would add to the comments made in the video by saying that the prices do vary a lot. In my opinion the most expensive manufacture is Warsenal, then Micro Art Studio and finally Bandua.

I would also like to point out two other manufactures of terrain that were not reviewed in the video. The fist is Plast Craft Games who produce a fantastic Haqq style terrain range, in plastic of course. Plast Craft Games also produce a more Pan-O style terrain, but I am not so keen of the look of these. Unfortunately I have not played on this terrain, so I can’t say how user friendly it is.

The second manufacture not mentioned is Spartan Games. This terrain system uses corridors, which sets it apart from the other manufactures. I have played on this terrain and have really enjoyed how much you use the interior of the buildings. This adds a whole new dimension to the game. Considering you can fill a 4 x 4 table with the starter set alone, this terrain is great value for money. The only downside in my opinion is that the MDF is only sealed on one side, which is a real shame.

I certainly think it’s worth shopping around and reading reviews to get the terrain  that suits your taste and requirements. After all one of the best aspects of Infinity is seeing a board full of  great looking terrain!

EDIT:

I noticed that there are more videos now in the video series and one is even Plast Craft Games!  The other terrain manufacture is Systema Gaming. I don’t have any experience with Systema Gaming so can’t comment on there products, apart from that they seem to have some cool acrylic pieces.

I mostly agree with the last video in the series, where Matt from Mini wargaming goes through the pros and cons. Well worth a listen!
