I was wondering how you guys felt about the following building:

I can buy it for 34 pounds (35 euro's) Do you guys think it's worth that much... or could i better spent that money on a Hirst mold???

While I love the kit and all the stuff that comes with it, it's really not that great for Mordheim on it's own.

As a source of details for scratch-built ruins it is fantastic but don't expect it to meet all your Mordheim scenery needs!

I think it is a great piece of terrain, but as the others said, not what you are thinking.....However comma you can make it that way with some snips here and there and some creativity!

I think the box is great!

Lots and lots of nice details for buildings, and some nice wallas.

And the house and tower can easely be rebouilt for mordheim.

One of the problems I've found with GW's accessory thingys & vehicles is that they tend toward the too small size. While I haven't had the opportunity to use the Fantasy stuff, I have used the Cities of Death sets; mixed with other building materials like foamboard, the nicely detailed plastic pieces can REALLY enhance a model.
That said, the reason I've yet to use the Manor, even with ALL the COOL bits it comes with, is it's WAY OUT OF MY PRICE RANGE.

Well i think 34 euro's isn't that much... the price it sells here in the stores is around 70 or 80 euro's.
So it's alot cheaper if i order it there... But i am not to sure if it will blend in.

I own this piece of scenery, though I haven't assembled it yet . Someone asked me once to take some photos of the sprues, so I post them here - I hope they'll help you to decide whether it's worth buying or not :

$75 is a bit much but as noted by others you can put it with other terrain and make it really neat.

Recently I got the GW watch tower as a birth day present. I assembled it into two 'halves', each one consisting of two walls. The interior was custom made with balsa wood, resulting in two very use full Mordheim buildings. For pictures (and shameless blog propaganda): http://somegamers.blogspot.com/2009/10/two-towers.html

It is so cool looking, but sadly it's to small to fit in with the rest of my terrain. I'd say for normal Warhammer Fantasy it's fine because you need that room to maneuver your troops but in Mordheim it's just to small.

Awesome bitz though.
