General Review:The Ruined Farmhouse from Warlord Games provides a pretty nice looking, modular building for your Bolt Action battles. I am going to review this from two perspectives, so please take a look...
The house contains 23 pieces of plastic. The plastic seems more of the standard toy plastic than anything I have really seen for miniature games. There was a very significant ridge of flashing around each piece, which made cleaning the model up a bit of a hassle -- especially with 20+ pieces. It took me about an hour to clean and assemble the model, having given up on a real good cleaning at about the 30 minute point.
Rating for Modelers: 7/10If modeling terrain is your thing, than this set is pretty cool. There are plenty of pieces to make any number of configurations. I could see getting a couple of these sets and making some nice modular buildings that would give your battlefield a different look each time. The cornerstone pieces included conceal the joints in the wall very well - a novel idea. The heavy flashing and assembly time were certainly drawbacks. At USD$24, you can certainly afford to buy a couple of these sets.
Rating for Non-Modelers: 3/10Full Disclosure: I am NOT a willing Terrain Modeler. For non-modelers, this set is a disaster. There are no instructions, a million pieces, and a ton of cleanup required. If you can struggle though, you will end up with a nice piece for an ok price. For me, I would rather keep the 2-3 hours of assembly and painting and buy something else with less work.
