Eslo Terrain Review

You can hear Jon and I review these items in episode 18, ACT III so I won't write a lot here.

These items were sent to us for review by Eslo Terrain, who are based in Germany. They do have a US distributor, however, at Warpath Games.

The first item sent to us was their emplacement.


Very nicely done, well painted and modeled, and very sturdy. Not a lot to dislike about it!

The second item is their stone bridge.

The bridge is nice quality, although it isn't quite wide enough to reach across the Battlefront rivers. However, it is usable in almost any era, and looks great!

The next item is their HMG pillbox.

It's just the right size to fit a FoW medium base, and looks great! The roof is very loose with no bevels to catch it. Easily fixable, but a minor annoyance.

And finally, the stand out piece in this set- the cafe building:

This piece also includes a piece of paper with several signs printed on it to customize the building further.

All in all, a great company, and I'll plan on picking up more of their stuff in the future!

Steven and crew,
Thanks for the podcast and congrats on the family news!

This review is really helpful to me. I'm attempting to make my own table but I just don't know where to start. I really want to have enough terrain to fight in Normandy/Italy and the desert, my two favorite theaters (I have Brits and Germans). However, I'm having a difficult time finding terrain providers, especially for good 15mm buildings. They need to be cheap and I would like them to have removable roofs. Prepainted is also a plus, since it seems like painting a whole town would take longer than a FoW army.

Do you guys have any advice. I've looked at JR but most of their stuff is either for Stalingrad or of questionable quality. Seems like Musket Miniatures may be the best for the price...

Thank you sir!

Yes, buildings are really a pain. They're expensive when unpainted, and downright unaffordable when they are. But it's tough to find great ones.

Miniature Building Authority are okay- I don't love them but they work. JR stuff is decent. I like these guys' work a lot, I'd love to see more of them.

Musket are definitely nice, though I dont own any

Too bad Crescent Root are no longer producing :( Their products were fantastic and reasonably priced.

Oh yeah, best in the biz

Looks very cool May have to invest in some of these!!!

@Tyler: I mostly use JR for my stuff - decent prices at conventions. I also have a friend who makes his own buildings for personal use and sells me some occasionally.

Here's a comment from Eslo themselves:

you can also us contact for unpainted scenery if you like it. Then is the scenery primed and cheaper. (contact is, you can also write in english)

Thank you

Nice! I'll have to check that out. I also speak German so either way is fine :)
