So yet again, I find myself throwing out another internet blogging 'exclusive' for something that was on display at Salute but not many people seemed to be talking about. If I'd been a little more professional and clever, I'd have remembered to take some more photos - of their furniture range, and of the giant "KR" sign made out of their foam...

This stuff was all available to pre-order, and Sim happily picked up a new desk for her to work at that can turn into a nice little skirmish table. But you will notice that there are little peg holes in the table above - why are they there?
The answer is that what KR are going to be doing next is gaming boards and scenery.

I had an interesting little chat about why magnets don't work for the same purpose - they had looked into them, but their shear strength is terrible - and once it fails, it fails spectacularly as once the magnets are apart, everything is loose.
The KR scenery range is going to start off with modular terrain boards - I believe with simple or luxury options and a variety of different climates.

They're also making terrain sets which will fit in with their carry case range in a clever and sensible manner. Here is an example of how a set of hills will work.
I'm really looking forward to this stuff. I'm not sure what things I'll go for myself - there's way too many different manufacturers I love to rely solely on one source of terrain, even if it is convenient. Despite that, I really like what they've done with it, and am a bit excited to see the full range when it's done.
