First of all, the 4x4 ft gaming area requires quite a lot of terrain to fill. Furthermore, the uniform green surface meant, without terrain in every corner, the table could look quite bland. However, with the slightly smaller surface (which will make no difference with Adventure games) I can get away with far less terrain and, in turn, start bringing the Adventure games out to geek night more regularly again.
Here's a shot overlooking the bulk of the table. As you can see, it's a mixed brown and green surface. Also, I can accentuate certain areas by building and fence placement to give the sense of roads.
