Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Azyrite Townscape

To be added to the Warcry terrain, I got myself the Azyrite Townscape. I had my eyes on the kit for a while now, as it is generic set of ruins and as such can be used for multiple setups.

The Azyrite Townscape is part of the Dominion of Sigmar terrain range and accompanied by two other sets, a smaller one Azyrite Ruins and a larger boxed set Realm of Battle Blasted Hallowheart. The name azyrite comes from Azyr, the celestial realm in the new Age of Sigmar.

Games Workshop sets the price of the Azyrite Townscape at 42,50 EUR and it contains three sprues and a multi page assembly instruction. The plastic sprues are pre-coloured in beige.

Casting is good, the sprues were made in China. The details are solid, not as sharp as one some other kits, but still more than suitable for terrain kit. Clean up takes of time, as the  larger parts have many connections to the sprue, to ensure the preasure / material is evenly distributed. There are some minor mold lines, but those are easily removed, as the go a straight line along the parts.

There are a total of 4 L-shaped ruines, we start with the smalles ones.  The wall sections can be mixed with each other. You can mix them with the parts from the other kits as well as with the wall sections from Warcry. I cleaned the one story high parts and build them as they are shown in the instructions.

The ruins can be used on their own or be put on a base to create a ruined building.

There are two larger ruins with two stories including a floor.

And there are smaller floor pieces, that are added to the wall section, to show broken, remaining tiles.

The long pieces can be added together to build a large wall front.

There are two pieces of small scatter terrain, a broken pillar and a chest. The pillar can be added ontop of a wall to raise it.

And here is the complete set up of the four ruin pieces.

As mentioned abvoe, the parts / wall sections can be mixed in different setups. The two long pieces can form a large corner, the shorter pieces form a L-ruin as well, both with a floor added to it.

The ruins create a lot of cover and fill up a proper part of the table, and can be used as mentioned with other rule sets as well, like Frostgrave. The townscape and ruins cover the same iconography as other Dominion of Sigmar terrain, like the pillars from the Shattered Temple or Sigmarite Dais.

And I managed to get the main pieces painted. I went with grey stones and not the limestone from the box..

Conclusion
This kit for itself or alone, might work better if you play games with larger miniatures like monsters or vehicles. For a skirmish it is best used in combination with smaller ruins, like the Azyrite Ruins or the items from the Warcry starter kit. The price is okay, if you manage to get it a bit of discount it really works well and as said before, in combination with smaller terrain pieces it goes a long way.

I like the design and the variability. If you were looking to build a display or Armies on Parade tiles, the combined long pieces would make for a solid backpiece to present your army in front of. The larger pieces along with the bell tower from Warcry could make for a great ruined church or cathedral.

I assume that we might see the Azyrite as part of the Ravaged Land supplements, maybe as a revamp Blasted Hallowheart, which might take a hit on the availablity of the individual kits. And I qas quite surprised, how far you can get with a solid coat and two turns of dry brushs.
