I found the pillboxes, barracks and Foundry really easy to assemble. The HQ was not too difficult but the bunkers had some complication.
I had to break out the hot glue to secure the bottoms of the walls together. once anchored the rest of the assembly went easily.
The one exception is the foundry. That is a massive breadbox. It even hides the knight.
I have started to paint up some of the pieces. I did a test earlier with grey and leadbelcher but I think I like the copper look better. Next nice day I will try to get the rest of the pieces base coated. Things are coming along nicely.
I think this set will fill a board decently. I will probably want to create some forests and some ruins to round out the table. Sometime I will pick up a game mat and my table will be complete. With this I can have a friend over and not feel bad for not having some decent terrain.
The biggest complaint I have about these pieces is the detail cards. I tried to use a variety of glues but I could not fine one that prevented them from curling away from the other pieces. I am not sure if there is a right way or wrong way to adding these but I obviously couldn't figure it out. Maybe my technique of gluing it down then holding it for 4-5 min is the right one.
I am really happy with the over all effect. I found these to be an affordable way to get a table's worth of terrain together. What do you think?
