Titan Terrain NZ and more Easterlings

Recently a new terrain company has started up down in Dunedin, NZ. Joe has turned his hobby into  a wee business and started up a 28mm terrain making company called Titan Terrain NZ  using laser cutting and was kind enough to send myself and Kent of Galpys 15mm paintshack a few samples of his products.

I must say that I am impressed. Tonight I built the 28mm Wattle and Daub hut and even without the instructions it is easy to put together with just a little trial and error (the instructions are sent via email but since when have I needed instructions?) I gave mine a quick paint as I went to make it easier than painting once fully assembled and this particular model comes with teddy bear fur for the thatched roof.

The building comes flatpacked.

Initial assembly- positioning pieces before gluing together.

 Assembling the roof.
 Painting as I go.

I wet the teddy bear fur with watered down pva, hopefully it will look the part once dry, it should do.

My new Easterlings (Fireforge Medieval Russians) protect the barn.

The semi finished product- I've yet to put the windows in and weather it a bit but I'd be happy to field it on the table top as is.

My thoughts
The building was easy to assembly and well constructed-  Joe has obviously done his homework there.

Retailing at $19.90 NZ the building is good value and a great addition to 28mm gaming and there are plenty of others in the range and are pretty reasonably priced. I can definitely see myself getting more to add to my 28mm buildings collection and highly recommend them to other gamers both here in NZ and overseas. 

A wee bit of info about Joe and Titan Terrain NZ

Joe spent his teenage years playing Game Workshop games then took a break from war gaming for around ten years before getting back into it around three years ago. Last year he was about to spend a reasonable sum on buying terrain from overseas when he figured that he could buy a small laser cutter for not much more than he was planning on spending and that if he  bought one then he could have as much terrain as he could ever want. Friends told him that what I was making was good enough to sell and it kind of took a life of it's own from there.

Joe had never used a CAD program, a vector editor or a laser cutter until a year ago so it's been a bit of a steep learning curve but thanks to the internet he was able access tutorials to help him when he was stuck. 

Joe was selling a bit of stuff through Facebook last year but only launched the Titan Terrain  NZ website in March of this year. He's already got a good range of buildings available and plans for a lot more. including a few more things for his 28mm WW2 range, fleshing out the sci-fi range a bit more, doing some 15mm stuff for Flames of War and Team Yankee (some industrial buildings that can be used for both) and then maybe do some medieval/War of the Roses stuff-so as you can see the range is bound to grow.

Based here in NZ Joe will ship all over the world and is able to get very competitive rates on overseas orders using DHL.

Good luck with the enterprise Joe, you've got a great, reasonably priced product which is a welcome addition to the field. I look forward to picking up a few more pieces for my table top games.
