Hello,

What do you think about this set - three ruined houses:

I am pretty excited about it. I think a little work will have to be done to get them to look different from one another but being plastic hacking and sawing isn't that big of a deal.

I'm a bit underwhelmed sadly.
£35 seems like an awful lot to pay for something you could knock up out of 2 sheets of foam core.
They do look quite nice, i guess im just too much of a cheapskate.

Hmmm that is a good point. The 'ooo shiney' effect kind of got a hold of me. Still, it isn't a horrible deal. Not outstanding but not horrible.

Yeah , and i'm massively overstating my modelling abilities to suggest i could make something that looks that good out of foam core.

I guess it is appealling being made of plastic. In my case, with lack of storage space and always having to move things about, having plastic terrain means less risk of breaking it.

I reckon this kit actually has some potential for those who are not so handy with the foamcore etc. 3 Houses for £35 isn't that bad, considering that,s pretty much £12 per building.

While I definitely wouldn't think about populating a full 4x4 board set in Mord itself (that would be insane) I could see these working well in a EiF or BtB setting. These + a few walls/fences and some trees you could have a very nice high quality table very quickly.

Alternatively if you were so inclined you could purchase the set once and, since they are all modular, make a few moulds to replicate them as much as you want, but that's a whole other area of discussion ^^'

That is not 3 buildings for 35 Euros but 1 building for 35 Euros.
Each color set in that image is one configuration of that building. You can tell by paying attention to the chimney and the roof section.

35 Euros for the 3 buildings I think is a great deal, 35 Euros for the one is something I would consider but I love building buildings too much and as some one else said above; I'm cheap too Very Happy

If you follow the link to the site you will see that the kit does actually contains 3 buildings quote from site: "Please note you get 3 of the farmhouses, the image above is an example of just 1 farmhouse."

So it is 3 buildings for the £35, which is quite decent imo ^^

Hum, actually I'm not too sure it is just one house. This is the kit they're showing in the website:

if the site say 3 then I'm wrong. I just looked at the image (on there site too) and saw all the big buildings were the same one just in different configurations.

It looks nice. You get 3 of the same sprues it seems. That's to keep molding costs down i suspect. Not bad all in all.
