MDF Terrain Instructions

Instructions for Brutal Cities laser cut MDF terrain kits. It's best to dry fit your terrain before gluing so you know you have it assembled correctly.

MDF Terrain Assembly Tips

  • A benefit of MDF terrain is that you can sand it and easily modify/convert it with appropriate hobby tools. (Just use a P2 mask for dust!)
  • You can use PVA glue, or superglue which is much quicker to dry - but PVA is best as you have time to fix mistakes and the bond is stronger.
  • Depending on terrain kit, you may want to paint before assembly to make it easier and quick.
  • I have designed the terrain to be very easy and quick to assemble and paint. But you can message the store on the customer support page if you are having issues and I'll do my best to help you!

Cabbage Palms has no Instructions - however, it is a very simple design, and the packaging shows each separate level. As with all MDF terrain, it's a good idea to dry fit before gluing.



Work in progress .stl terrain design

I've been wanting to design 3d printable terrain for you guys for a while.
But as I was also making and fulfilling MDF orders, I didn't have much time.

Pictured here is a brutalist inspired terrain concept I whipped up in about half an hour, for epic scale miniature games.

As always, I want to make sure that I'm providing you with great products. I'll run a 3d Printing Terrain survey soon to get your input.
