Medieval Buildings Set thoughts 7 Years, 11 Months ago  
Hi folks,

I hope I can type this without making too many mistakes - I am tooooo excited to concentrate - my MBS has just arrived (at almost the same moment as another boxful of stuff from Otherworld).

MBS = WOW

I am *supposed* to be going out tonight...

;)

Somehow, I think I'm going to turn all shy and reclusive this evening, because: I WANNA PLAY WITH MY NEW TOY. :D

It looks absolutely SUPERB. I had expected a 'double-sized' box, given the number of pieces in the advert, but I see the packaging designer has become really clever, and it all fits in a single - great.

I also (finally) got some diagonal floor pieces, so my diagonal walls have suddenly become even more useful.

Cheers,
Phil

I did go out, but I have also had all the pieces out, and had a bit of a play. I am very impressed. The set has been well thought-out, as regards quantities and varieties of pieces - one set (all I could afford) seems pretty versatile - Stefan has clearly learned a lot from earlier sets, and applied it well. The little details of the pieces (bare wattle, etc) are very, very, nicely done.

Tomorrow I'll set up my table and have a proper play, to really see what sort of variety of buildings I can make, once the wife and kids are out of the way.

My only criticisms are:

1) that the door pieces seem a little narrow, so when you place them on a floor piece there are quite big gaps between them and the wall pieces either side;

2) several of my pieces had chipped corners straight out of the box.

The latter isn't really a problem, since, as a keen figure painter I have probably got more pots of brown paint than Imelda Marcos had shoes - my motto is 'you can never have too many shades of brown' - but it is a little disappointing. The packaging seems good, so presumably this came about from rough handling in the factory.

Phil -

With Stefan's attitude towards Quality Control, don't be surprised if he shows up on your doorstep with replacement parts!
I'm only partly kidding, here; the man is a Fanatic about QC.

However, somehow I have serious doubts about your paint and Imelda Marcos' shoes; I suspect she has (had!) more shoes. Although it's possible the count might be close.

See ya!

Phil,

Did you mean that the actual (resin) pieces were chipped, or the paint on several of your pieces?

Just wondering.

Some of the sharp corners - particularly the corners of the 'wooden' floors - have chipped - as well as paint, there's a small amount of resin 'missing'. They should touch up okay though.

I just received my MBS sets too - fantastic!!!!!
Very versatile, I will be using them this Sunday when we play D&D.
No obvious chips on mine but even if there were, like you Phil, I would just touch them up with a brush.
