Fabled Realms: Mordanburg Backstreet Hovel
However, after seeing the Fabled Realms range from 4Ground at Salute 2014, I was very interested to say the least. Rob and I had already embarked on painting our Freebooter's Fate crews, but we were a little undecided about terrain for Longfall (the primary setting for Freebooter's Fate), and both agreed that this range could be pretty much perfect for our needs. I can also see me using the buildings for Anima Tactics having seen some screenshots for the related video game.
One of my favourite things about the kit is the illusion of uneven construction created through the use of layered components. I think 4Ground have done a great job in executing the design.
I am very happy with the results and when considering scratch build would take far, far more time, I am happy with the price (£16 GBP approximately) and quality. The only extra painting I did was the lugs that can be seen in the roof and the edges of the top piece to over-paint the burnt-MDF edges to disguise them a little. In all, a highly recommended kit and I will probably get at least a couple more from the range.
