    We have nailed down the format for the new space-saver terrain tiles. They are 20mm thick, in place of 40mm and will be Styrofoam, not polystyrene, so will be more durable and take up half the space. Rivers and streams will have a base of 10mm Styrofoam and the banks and top layer will be of polystyrene. Hills etc will still be polystyrene and will be 20mm high (so conveniently make up the space to get from a 20mm tile to a 40mm tile, for those of you that have 40mm tiles you can still fit them together; they are all the same colour!)

    This will also make it more economical for our US customers who have wanted TSS for years, but balked at the cost of shipping. This will still be high, but for a product that will last for years!

    Any time someone in the UK talks about making gaming material more affordable to we poor Americans, I’m all ears!

    The issue with the tiles is not the cost themselves, but the shipping.

    They are low weight, low cost, but quite bulky and with shipping tending to be constrained more by bulk than weight these days it’s not hard to end up with £50 worth of product costing £100 to ship!

    We are hoping that these tiles, being half the thickness, will save on space and thus considerably reduce the cost of shipping which, while still not cheap, will hopefully feel a bit more reasonable and affordable.

    Personally, I first saw the test set of these a few years ago and really liked them. The 20mm deep hills gave a nice gentle undulating surface that provided yet more modular variation to the table.
