Paint Mat

The Citadel Paint Mat is an affordable gift option that retails for $25. It is a flexible silicon mat that can be rolled up to fit easily in a hobby toolbox. The mat is ridged to help contain any spilled paint or wash. It is perfect for your personal beats lab or any place that you hobby and do not want to make a mess.

STC Ryza Ruins

Another great options is the STC Ryza-Pattern Ruins terrain kit. These ruiins were part of the Moon Base Klaisus box set and is now in its own standalone kit. The kit retails for $30 and comes pre-colored on two sprues. The level of detail will not be as high as other terrain kits that we have seen in other multi-part kits. The terrain comes pre-assemble and ready to hit your tabletop as is or you can paint them up and give them some custom base work to achieve the look you are going for.
