The Citadel Realm of Battle Gameboard miniature scenery set from Games Workshop includes pieces to build a complete battlefield.

"The Realm of Battle Gameboard is Citadel's high quality, plastic, modular gaming surface. Made from the same plastic as your Citadel miniatures, each of its six unique sections are finely-detailed, robust and can be painted in exactly the same way as the rest of your miniature collection. These six 2' x 2' sections can be arranged to create three styles of board: a central hill, a large valley or an open plain. You can arrange the sections in a number of different ways to create further variation within these three types.  This set contains six unique 2' x 2' rigid-plastic board sections, enabling you to assemble a 6' x 4' gaming table. The Citadel Realm of Battle Gameboard is supplied in a cardboard outer with reinforced card corners to keep the board secure during transport."

The weight of the set is 13 lbs (13,6 kg).

Review - Citadel Realm of Battle Gameboard miniature scenery set from Games Workshop

This board set is a rather generic gaming board, for any kind of wargames.

The only thing I don't particularly like is the addition of the skull-pits, that somewhat limits the use of the board without modifications. Most painting tutorials spend some time on how to cover them, so this was probably not the best idea from the designers.

Every side is connected to the other tile with 2 connector pieces. The set includes 32 of them, so you'll have plenty.

People complain about the slopes, as they let miniatures slide down. Flocking is recommended to increase the friction of the board.
