|My current collection of box terrain!|
Things I liked:
- The first thing I noticed was that the plastic is very solid, it has a good snap to it when cut but is not brittle allowing you some wiggle room when trying to connect the parts.
- The connector system (once cleaned, more on this later) works very well to hold the parts in place whilst the glue does it's business giving you a solid piece of terrain. Despite there being upper and lower positions for the connectors you don't need to use both meaning you can spread yoour connectors over quite a lot of terrain, which is good because the one frame you get in the main box looks awfully mean at first.
- Once you have a few different themed sprue (thanks Will!) you can really mix and match to create some interesting aesthetics, which I first thought would be very difficult as there are only so many ways you can combine industrial looking sure sections! I would like to throw in some of the ruined parts to really break it up in future terrain.
- The walkway system is really easy to put together and has the potential to make some stunning pieces of terrain.
|With just a simple triangular support what was one a panel becomes a walkway!|
- The connector system is quite fiddly to get to grips with as I found the parts needed quite a bit of trimming/scrapping to ensure that they slotted in to the housing far enough to allow the sides of the panels to touch and therefore glue together. I only took me a couple of botched attempts to work it out but given the small number of connector pieces you may have it caused a couple of frustrating moments.
- I would really like to be able to keep the walkways separate but I can't see it happening as the single pin connection just feels as though it will come out once you get playing with it for a while. A shame but I guess it just means I'll have to get more terrain.
- You really need to pay attention to which parts are designed to act a floor panels as it looks really weird if you try to use the side sections as floors. I feel these kits really benefit from being purchased as large as you can afford to allow for the maximum creativity.
