Walls are man’s greatest achievement and tool: A versatile and tactical obstacles. These solid structures protect areas and properties. Throughout human history, walls were used as decisive strategies to determine many critical outcomes of many battles: The Aurelian walls protected the inner cities of Rome from vicious barbarians; The Antonine and Hadrian walls ran across the continent of Scotland to hinder the Roman progress; The Great Wall of China, the largest and recognizable man-made structure in the world, was built to stop Mongolian invaders from the North during a span of several dynasties.
The usage and importance of walls in miniature wargaming are under-appreciated. Walls have played an extremely critical role in many battles, but it has not been recognized nor played “correctly” in miniature wargaming scenarios. This may be due to the fact that current market offers walls that are too short or too tall to be considered a strategic play. Also, many walls offered in this industry are priced too high to become affordable. Or maybe it’s just not the right wall…
Art of War Terrain proudly presents our first line of manufactory products: KEM WALLS!
KEM-Type Walls, or “K-Walls” for short, are the primary defense against onslaught of any army. The shape and dimensions of these walls are unique in design (patent pending). Our K-Walls are detailed inside and out to give it more depth and realism in every game play.
Here’s the list of features for these K-Walls:
The K-Walls are individually and painstakingly molded by hand-pouring plastic mixture into our specialized cast. We use rigid polyurethane foam for its durability and weight: These walls can withstand 200+ pounds (one of us had stood on it) and weighs less than 8 ounces!The cells in the foam are relatively small and compact. This allows the K-Walls to be easily altered into battle-damage walls by chiseling into the surface of the wall and touching up with filler and paint. All the details are captured beautifully. DO expect air pockets and slight surface irregularities, but this adds a wonderful character to the K-Walls. The K-Walls are repairable using filler and spackling material. NO TWO WALLS ARE THE SAME!
These were designed to playable specifications for miniatures ranging from 25mm to 30mm. The dimension is 7” wide, 5” high and 4” deep. The top ledge is wide enough for hand-to-hand combat as specified in most gaming rules. The lower level is only 1” deep to allow figures to duck behind corridors.
Each K-Wall has a small, yet powerful Neodymium-Iron-Boron (nickel-plated) magnet on each side (located on the lower half). The K-Walls remain in place during the game play when placed side-by-side. The top half of each side has a rectangular slot to allow future accessories to be added on. Or, add your own imagination!
We designed these K-Walls to be affordable with great value in every imaginable way. They are unpainted/unprimed but the molds are dyed in black (if you prefer the original “sand” color, please let us know in your order). The shipping is incredibly affordable due to its lightweight material. In fact, International orders can enjoy the savings as we charge only First-Class Mail rate for 1 set!
We currently offer the Modern/Future Industrial-themed K-Wall design. We plan to offer other designs as requested by many gamers in the near future. These suggestions include fantasy themes (wooden K-Walls), desert themes (sandstone K-Walls), and others. Give us any other suggestions so we can continually expand our catalog and selections!
Beautifully detailed all around to give maximum impact!
The topside of the walls are wide enough to handle gun placements with a base of 2 inches. Please note that the figures shown are for purpose of scale and display only.
