It's been quite some time since I spoke about Sarissa Precisions rather awesome System ∞ sci-fi scenery system. I'm pretty damn sure regular readers will know how much of a fan of the stuff I am. Well with the release of Campaign Paradiso for Infinity I've been re-looking at my scenery and seeing where there might be any gaps. Interestingly, and I'm sure totally coincidentally, Sarissa have actually released a few more pieces of terrain of terrain this past week for their System ∞ stuff, and I've been lucky enough to get my hands on some of it...
This isn't going to be a full on review of the stuff because I've already pretty much reviewed these items already, you can find a long list of Sarissa Precision System ∞ reviews here. Nope, these are more my musings on what these extra pieces add to the range and what I genuinely think of them. First up here are some concept sketches:
I think the idea of these are brilliant. In the same way as I think the L-shaped buildings and floor expansions for MAS Designed for Infinity range are. In terms of providing different shapes and effective barriers on the tabletop, the System ∞ range already provided you with plenty of interesting layout options and floor plans. However these new options give us loads more:
- Habitation Pod - Settler with Side Access - £16.00
- Habitation Pod - Family with Side Access - £20.00
- Commercial Pod - Plaza with Side Access - £22.50
- 4-Way Pod - £20.00
- 4-Way Link Pod -£17.50
- Link-pod short - £7.50
- Link-pod Long - £10.00
- Link-pod Side Entrance Short - £7.50
- Link-pod Side Entrance Long - £10.00
So you can put these together in some really interesting ways I think to create some quite complex floor plates. Thinking about it there's actually now a possibility to build a proper full on Aliens type complex, because these pods are now effectively corridors, which can lead into bigger rooms. So yeah, there are loads of really cool possibilities now. I haven't got too many of these, but I do have a few to play about with:
So yeah I'm pretty pleased with how these new pieces fit in, and the sort of options they give me when creating my boards. I haven't yet had the chance to throw these down on a board in anger as it were, but I can't see how they'd perform any differently form the other System ∞ Pods. It's just all about giving us the possibility of chucking a few more interesting shapes on the board. I'm sold. Peace out!
