The Scenic Route

Amera are a fantastic modelling company based in Northumberland who seem to have quite a knack for producing some pretty special plastic mould scenery for just about any game you care to play. They offer trenches, bunkers, river beds, fortresses…the list goes on for a while. And they’ve just added another string to their bow by releasing the hills below which are awesome for two reasons. The first being they are perfect for Uncharted Seas and Dystopian Wars. The second reason is because they’re very reasonably priced – just £13 for all four and, as you can see from the images below, they work seamlessly with the harbour scenery from Spartan Games.

The hills themselves are pretty damn nice from what I can see and being pre-grassed is definitely a bonus and will encourage the more work-shy hobbyist to paint the cliff faces. Although even then it’s not exactly a stretch. Now, obviously they’re made of plastic similar to Games Workshop’s Moonscape (crater) pack and so there may be an element of sanding and texturing etc but for the price and the variety – considering you can get volcanic islands as well as harbours and the like – there’s not much to grumble about.

Again, without seeing it in detail; I would argue that you’d be hard pressed to find more suitable scatter terrain for your fleets to hide behind at that kind of price. So go buy some.
