Breaking! Games Workshop: New Affordable Realm of Battle: Moon Base Klaisus Scenery set


Games Workshop has launched the pre-order for their new Realm of Battle: Moon Base Klaisus Scenery Set featuring Warhammer 40K plastic ruins and cartonboard scenery tiles.

Breaking! Games Workshop: New Affordable Realm of Battle: Moon Base Klaisus Scenery setThe perfect way to start a collection of Citadel scenery, this is literally a battlefield in a box! The best way to play games of Warhammer 40,000 is on specially-made terrain – it just feels that bit more immersive to move your models around a true representation of the war-torn far future, instead of just the kitchen table. Moon Base Klaisus has been designed as a great entry point to this side of the hobby – it requires no painting, takes 5 minutes to set up and put away, and fits on the average family dining room table. 

Included in the box: 4 fold-out gaming boards, made of extra-thick, hard-wearing card. These sit next to each other on your table to form a 5’ 6” x 3' 4" battlefield. The boards are double-sided, one side featuring the ruins of Moon Base Klaisus, and the other featuring a Martian landscape; 

4 push-fit plastic scenery pieces - no glue required – representing ruined wall sections, which your models can take cover behind. Each of these is able to slot into the others in any combination, allowing a variety of scenery – especially when combined with the 3 plastic ruins, access hatch, and Inquisitorial crate that are included. Each of these scenery pieces are designed to be match the Sector Mechanicus scenery kits available, making expansion easy; 3 Crucible of War missions, designed to be played using the contents of this box. These can be played individually, or linked together, giving you a campaign. Even the box this set comes in is useful: it’s made of strong card, making it perfect for storing your disassembled scenery set between games.

You can now pre-order this affordable and easily transportable Warhammer 40K Scenery Set at Games Workshop here or pre-order your copy at Element Games here with the usual 20% discount they offer.

Really like the Realm of Battle: Moon Base Klaisus ... but why oh why didnt they make it "full size"????

Think it's mostly an issue of being able to bring to market an affordable set-up for basic games and missions. A bigger box with a larger playing surface would have cost more and may have been seen as too expensive for most wargamers. You could always buy a couple if you would need a larger surface for your Warhammer 40K wargames but understand your point.

Yeah, the thing is that its so close to full size that its hard to think its that much of a saving really. Just a couple of inches in each direction. But enough to mess up some scenarios and matched play.

I think it's due to the fact they want it to fit in a standard large dining room table. This will overhang my table by an inch each edge so will be ideal for me to move up from my 4x4 wooden board and mat
