Just a few days ago I received the 2 new Battlefront houses, house add-ons, village walls, and villagers! In some of our previous reviews, we've pointed out that the blocky shape of the houses was a bit boring. Since then, the addition of numerous houses in varying colors and roof shapes has gone a long way to address that- just having a ton of houses makes it start to look like a real village!
But the addition of the house add-ons, even if they only come in 3 varieties, does a really good job of breaking up the otherwiseboring silhouettes. They still may be a bit samey, but I think the appearance speaks for itself.
Not much else to say other than I really like these add ons! They go a long way to address the few complaints I had about these houses- plus... they were free with the subscription!
The stone walls are nice too. Nice pre-paints, and we all know FoW games can always do with a bit more linear terrain! My one small complaint is that only 2 corner pieces are included, and that most wall sections have destroyed areas. That's well and good, and in a war-torn region it makes perfect sense! However, these houses all look well maintained so it's a tiny bit jarring. Tiny complaint though.
Besides that, the fountain and monument are both awesome additions- both something lacking from all of my European battlefields!
Also included in the set is a villagers blister. They look pretty solid- but I haven't cracked em open just yet. I love the guy with the pimp cane, but I almost feel guilty letting my little civvies get mixed up in a combat zone!
Well cool! We're halfway done! I think this village has come along quite nicely.
