Eldar Terrain - Miniature Scenery

Miniature Scenery are an Australian company who make mdf products.

In the past I have purchased a lot of their products - Drop Pods, Flat Top buildings, Painting Racks. They come as A4-sized flat packs with 2-3 millimetre pre-cut mdf sheets.

I recently noticed that they have released some new Eldar terrain.

The first thing I am going to say is that the finish on the photographed pieces is terrible. I know that they are trying to achieve an abandonned world look but they are seriously not helping the pitch.

I'm also not sure that they are still in the race. Gale Force Nine have released their Battlefield in a Box terrain in the period since Miniature Scenery came to the market and their product is far superior - resin, built, pre-painted - for not much more in $ terms.

In the past I would have been a buyer. Now? I'm not so sure.


  1. I agree that the photos are not great, painting it flat grey was never going to make the pictures pop.

    But I can see some potential in the product itself, I particulary like the tower; a few gems, something to give it some scale, and a decent paint job would make these look very nice.

  2. Its a bit meh. I think I would just sci fi up the battlefields in a box Elven monoliths

  3. I really like the look though. Although it is a bit difficult to tell from the photos the overall design looks like it has the right "feel". Although I really like the Battlefield in a Box series, I think that the Eleven pieces above actually look better imho.
    I have one BIAB Eleven Tower kit and I agree that it is high quality ( but one advantage of the kits above is that that they slot together and that makes them easier to store and I guess to transport too. I live in a small apartment and I have to travel to play (and therefore carry my scenery with me)...
