As part of our upcoming Adeptus Titanicus Campaign, I’m building a ‘red planet’ themed modular board that we can use to represent the surface of Retarus III. RIII is a largely inconspicuous planet, producing mainly industrial machinery, shipping constantly to worlds holding higher position in the sectors hierarchy.
Much in the image of the Red Planet itself, the surface of RIII has been methodically and meticulously stripped of all resource, whether living or mineral. With the natural balance removed the wind laid claim to the planet, creating a harsh new landscape unforgiving to all but the most resilient or indeed foolhardy.
RIII is the first of the planets our commanders will fight over. The barren forgeworld setting gives scope for a range of environments to fight over. From the barren, rugged outlands to the inner circle of the primary forge – Our players must prepare themselves and their tactics for a myriad of hostile theatres of operation.
Made up of a minimum of 16 1ft square sections, the RIII board will represent everything the planet has to offer. As the campaign to (re)take the planet continues, more features and sections will be added to cartographic database.
Watch this space 🙂
