How about two gloriously painted armies ready to wage war across a detailed and equally glorious gameboard? No matter what game you play, you'll have a far better experience with some great terrain to fight over. The new edition of Warhammer lists dozens of special terrain features that practically demand you use exciting terrain in your games.
