I had high hopes for getting a lot of terrain work done this week while SWMBO was in Auckland. Alas, illness restricted my output, but I did get this done. Here it is painted up:
I added some textured paint to the first storey to give it a bit of a solid look - don't know if they had concrete render in Victorian England (doubt it), but then they didn't have infernium either did they? Close up ground floor with Prof Erazmus:
The three levels:
It fits height wise quite well with my smaller Sarissa building of the set I had previously bought:
But looks quite nice with the bigger one, albeit a little more Upper West Side rather than East End:
I intend to add words to the signage on the front, and I will be putting the Westwind PDF posters up around my town soon. I will post more pictures as it takes shape.
Rating wise, this is a nice piece of kit. The levels are a bit "sticky" getting together and off, but given the number of pieces, that isn't surprising. Sarissa Precision live up to their name - the bits are cut precisely and I have never found any issue with them. There is a little of that MDF look that you just cannot escape - with paint, some green stuff and some creativity you minimise that, but there is always a little of that feel remaining.
In terms of building a good looking 28mm cityscape though, I do not see any better options on the market (unless Mr Bowman commercialises these little pieces here).
Next job is working out a road system and building yards and stuff in expectation of our first EOTD game when Steve comes back. Good thing EOTD boards are only 4x4!
