This post is a TTCombat MDF Intermodal Containers Review. These are scaled for 28mm to 32mm gaming.
Looking at terrain by TTCombat is something that I wanted to do ever since I played Carnaverse at a local convention. Most the scenery on that gaming table is by TTCombat. Nick from Cardboard Dungeon Games ran that demo game.
Since then, Nick took steps to become a TTCombat stockist in North America. If you haven’t checked out Cardboard Dungeon Games, he has great prices with good shipping rates for North America. Through Cardboard Dungeon Games, I ordered four packs of TTCombat MDF Terrain. In this post, we will review the first two that I built.
Before getting into this TTCombat MDF Intermodal Containers review, I am going to tell you a bit about TTCombat.
For those that don’t know, TTCombat makes a number of products including scenery, Carnevale, Dropzone Commander, Dropfleet Commander and Rumbleslam. They also sell some other interesting products including a small MDF spaceship game called Space Swarm.
Dropzone Commander I played in a previous edition and wrote a report. I found the game to be enjoyable. Its scale is very small (10mm).
I am also curious about Rumbleslam and Space Swarm. With that out of the way, let’s take a closer look at TTCombat’s Intermodal Containers.
TTCombat Intermodal Containers – In the Kit
The first two MDF Terrain kits that I ever built by TTCombat were these two Intermodal Containers. Basically, they are modern shipping containers.
Building the Containers
The Containers went together very easily. I will mention that you should dry fit the pieces before you build. If you put the long container walls on in the wrong direction, then the doors will not open and close. I had to pull one apart after I glued it together to get it right. You will want to be careful while building this part.
The Completed Models
These models were easy to build and quick to put together. I use my favourite wood glue and a brush to join the pieces, but some people might just pour the glue on and jam it all together. Once you are done, you have three very usable containers for your modern (or near future) sci-fi games.
What are those containers above pictured on? We will get into that in my next TTCombat MDF terrain review.
Wrapping it up…
Thank you for joining me in this TTCombat MDF Intermodal Containers Review. The containers go together very well and look great on the tabletop. I was not expecting that the hinged doors would actually function. They do. I will have to see if that is still the case after I paint the models.
A couple of things that I want to comment on before wrapping up is that TTCombat’s prices their terrain very affordably. These kits will not put you back too bad with your bank account. That said, the MDF is not as strong as some other models that I built in the past. Despite this, I think the strength is certainly good enough for my purposes, and I might add more strength to them with a coat of shellac before I paint the containers.
Overall, my opinion of the product is very positive and I will likely collect more TTCombat terrain in the future. If you are in North Amercia, look up Cardboard Dungeon Games. They have plenty of TTCombat products available at good prices.
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
