Viking Buildings and TSS Terrain Tiles

Post by Blucher » Wed Sep 15, 2010 6:53 am

Wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction on a couple of queries?

Firstly - anyone know whats happened to TSS Terrain Tiles? Heard a rumour that the previous owners had 'retired'. There was no 'representation' at Partizan, with no one selling them.

Secondly- does anyone know any companies that produce a Viking Great Hall building in 28mm? I would prefer one that has plenty of 'carvings' on it/'Goth' like.

All answer very welcome.

Adrian , the TSS website is still open and they do list various new products. http://totalsystemscenic.com/

For Dark Ages buildings the best place to go IMHO is either Gripping Beast or Grand Manner. I know Dave Bodley has made a Saxon Great Hall but don't know if there is a specific Viking building available. Gripping Beast have a cracker of a Viking Longship. Both Kev and I have one although we have yet to get them painted !

Adrian, Stronghold Miniatures do a suitable building for a great hall but getting the buildings from Mike can be a bit awkward. I have one painted which we can use for the March game, if that is what you want it for. My Irish will be too busy raping and pillaging to need a great hall.

Blucher,

You can't beat Grand Manner for this sort of thing- they certainly at the higher end of the price scale but they are are beautifully crafted models.

You pays your money.....

Many thanks to you chaps for the help so far - very much appreciated.

I've now been able to 'find' TSS. My old 'web link' in my favorites was defaulting to the now closed down 'old site' - that was what propted my original cry for help.

Still looking into getting the 'right' Viking Great Hall. Thanks again for all the pointers. I've got the Grand Manner Saxon Hall and I have 'trawled' the 'usual suspects' regarding buildings - no joy to date. Hope maybe someone might see one at a show (even a Fantasy Show!) and forward details.

Thanks again Chaps
