they could make the terrain tray with Perforated Steel Sheets and cover it with a translucent fabric? plus the trays would be lighter
actually just having some Perforated Steel Sheets, will let you have your cake and eat it too. you can put a bare Perforated Steel Sheet on top of the lighted panel then put the magnetic pieces on top of the Perforated Steel Sheet so light and magnetic holding

but of course it would also have to be magnetic, so maybe transparent steel?

Why not a few terrain trays with translucence instead of metal? They work with light boxes and for negative space. If folks push it may show up later.

@realarete: I mean sure, I suppose you could do the "glowy castle" and "glowy tavern" too, etc. But in your examples, you are talking about some realllllly specific settings. How many "glowing forest floors" are you going to include in a campaign?
Hell scape isn't a specific setting ?lol

I won't have ANY glowing forests since I'll be using terrain trays ... ;)
Of course it is. That wasn't what I meant. However, while Hellscape is pretty specific, a "glowing lava hellscape" isn't any more specific than hellscape itself. Basically, the way I see it is that they are giving us options. For those of us on a tight budget, we can use the terrain trays to get a lot of our lava builds, while also having the functionality of the stone flip side and magnetic tray allowing for prebuilding and "flying in" of builds. For those with bigger budgets, they can now go for the Hellscape for more specific terrain AND the added show stopper of lighted lava. Its sorta like KS1 vs. DoD. Technically speaking, you could say that DoD was sending a mixed message because its so much more detailed than KS1, but really, its just providing extra options -- albeit for more money.
