Alternate model company: CNC Workshop Miniature Scenery
CNC Workshop Miniature Scenery have a couple of new kits that I think look awesome. The new kits are Tornado and the ARF Track
These kits are made of MDF and are just amazing. Every time I come across anything by them I am tempted to give them a try. There is only a couple of things holding me back.
First off they are close if not more than the actual GW kit. Most of the time I am looking for a cheaper alternative when I look for alternate models. Unfortuantly before shipping they are around the same price and when you tag on shipping you are paying more than GW. If I were in a store or at a convention and I saw these side by side with the GW models. I think I would lean towards buying these guys.
If price was not an issue I think the last thing holding me back is the material. I just don't know how well the mdf will hold up compared to plastics. I have a few MDF objectives and while I think they look cool I am not sure if I am ready to switch over to it for everything. The cost of givingit a try is a bit high with a small kit like the Rocket buggy comes to $25
While this looks cool and the inital price of $15 is not bad the $11 shipping is hard to swallow for a tryout. The nice thing is if you do decide to get muliple items the shipping gets more reasonable. Three of these are only $13 shipping. So maybe in the future when I decide to try out some rocket buggies I could order a few and test them out. If I like them maybe I will try a few of the ARF Tracks or maybe one of these.
If you have tried these guys I would be glad to hear your experience.
