Name the Game from the Component

Post by Blackhawk »

A few years ago I picked this up at GenCon in The War Store's discount bins, just tossed into a bag and marked for a buck. I'm trying to figure the pieces out, and I was wondering if anyone recognized them. There's a good chance it isn't from a game, but was something sold as terrain for a different tabletop game. There are a bunch of walls, some floors, a roof, and some small brick piles. There are also oblong pieces that appear to be connectors (there's one in the picture) with pegs that fit into the holes.

They're not 28mm - based on the doors, I'd guess 54mm.

Are those the buildings for Marvel HeroScape?

EDIT: They are not, but I'll keep my guess up to own the shame of being wrong.

Oh - and there are more 'broken' pieces (partial walls, sections like the windows in the picture) than there are intact pieces. Superhero or post apocalyptic are possibilities, but WW1/2 seems likely.

The architecture looks more modern (flat metal doors) rather than WW2 to me. Is that big flat slab a floor or a roof?

I'm guessing terrain for miniatures, although it does seem larger than typical wargaming.

I think it is a floor (but I don't know for sure.) The piece that I know is a roof has one of the round vents.

If OO fails you, you should post it on What is this thing? or What is this toy? on Reddit!

Some more shots, showing a better variety of pieces. I'm pretty sure the two at the top left are roofs, so that would make the other square one a floor. On actual comparison with a 25/28mm miniature, they actually do seem like they'd work for standard minis. The two long pieces are the connectors I mentioned.

I will check out that Reddit if this doesn't pan out.

I have some modern military miniatures that I picked up to use as "tokens" for a modern warfare card game. They have the same color and the bases are "keyed" in the same way as those walls. Let me see if I can figure out who made them and I'll let you know. But I'm pretty sure they weren't American made - either from Asian or Euro model makers.

Ah, thanks. I checked these for copyright of branding, but there's nothing. Are they standard 25/28mm?

Hot damn, that was just enough to pull the right search results in. It's from Mantic Games, the makers of Kings of War. It's part of their Terrain Crate line.

I know you already figured it out, but to me it looks like it belongs to some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game.
