The range was originally released at the end of 2019, covering the Rohan House and Rohan Watchtower & Palisade. The settlement was a bundle, covering six houses and two times the palisades for a price of 200 EUR (and was pretty much sold out right away).

The overall design of the new Age of Sigmar 3.0 terrain was moved from ruins of battle, towards new towns and outposts under construction, rebuilding and forging new settlements. The Nexus Syphon, a magical construct to channel the energy from the realms to power and protect these newly founded colonies of the Dawnbringer Crusades.

Twelve months, 20,- Euro – Part 8

It's happened to me again, it's September and I'm writing my recap for August - yes, the summer void has continued and aside from a few more rocks for my terrain collection, I haven't gotten far.

Twelve months, 20,- Euro – Part 8

But I am all the more satisfied with the result. I had already finished the lower three rocks and expanded them with the four rock formations above. I never thought I'd ever have to write so many words about rocks in the tabletop field, but they are amazingly versatile as game terrain.

Twelve months, 20,- Euros – Part 5

May is over and as expected I haven't had that much free time due to my new job. But as the saying goes, sometimes class counts more than mass. Following this motto, I managed relatively early in the month to paint my leader for the troop of Greek mercenaries and Corinthians.

Mortal Gods - Diamachos Mortal Gods - Diamachos

Since he got a completely new miniature, I also gave him a new name: Diamachos. The name is derived from the greek word for quarrel (diamachi) and is supposed to represent that this fearless mercenary captain lives from the conflict of others.

Twelve months, 20,- Euros – Part 4

The good news first: I found a new job and am more relaxed about that issue now. On the other hand, of course, this means that I have to concentrate on learning the routine and, at the same time, my hobby time is melting away.

So, I'm not surprised that I easily stayed within my hobby budget in April and again only painted one miniature. Since I was somehow not satisfied with the first iteration of Dromeas, I painted another model with the same background story in mind.

Twelve months, 20,- Euros – Part 3

March is always a great month because it gives me the most opportunities for excuses (yes, I know how that sounds). At the beginning of the month I turned 40 - all the more reason to throw a little money out the window. Or is it?

Last month I was thinking about what I wanted to spend my monthly budget on, and that it would probably be a play mat. I've hesitated between four mats from PWorks:

Renedra – Middle Eastern Two-Storey Houses

We've talked about the Mud-Brick house by Renedra earlier this month, and they added multiple two-storey houses to that design. Those are available in three different sizes and come either as single kits or a boxed set with all three of them. I went with the large set of middle eastern buildings, so let's get started.

Renedra - Middle East Two-Storey Houses Renedra - Middle East Two-Storey Houses

These come either in a large bag for the single houses or in a cardboard box as a set. The packaging is full coloured and covers scenes of them in use, on the backside the individual sets as well as the Mud-brick house is named. Pricing is reasonable, 8 to 10 GBP (depending on the size) for the single houses and 22 GBP for the set of three. You already save 5 GBP with the boxed set.

Renedra – Mudbrick House

This review about the Mud-Brick House by Renedra, that I thought I already published (you could see it in my review on the sandbags), got lost somewhere in the past. I wanted to refer it in the upcoming review on the two-storey houses, but after not finding the review I realized, that I took the pictures, edited them and so on, but never wrote the actual article. Anyhow, I think it still generates value to talk about this kit, especially with a further terrain sets by Renedra, picking up the middle eastern theme.

Necromunda – Bulkheads

While sorting through the miniatures and getting a feel for the volume, I realised that my actual problem aren't the miniatures (they are mostly 28mm, so that's not that tall, and I don't do mass combat armies) but the terrain. And after going through the boxes and opening up the 4th box (of a few more) with Necromunda Bulkheads in it, it dawned on me that I might went a bit overboard on them.

So my stock went above 200 of these, that's more than I need.

Necromunda – Zone Mortalis Platforms and Stairs

To finalize the review series on the Zone Mortalis, after covering the Columns and Walls as well as the Gang Stronghold, we look closer into the accessoires set - Platforms and Stairs.

Necromunda - Zone Mortalis Platforms and Stairs

With spicy price tag of 50 EUR it is important to know what it brings to the table, literally. We have two different sprues, each two times included in this set. It is important to note, that this is barely a stand-alone and it requires at least the Columns and Walls kit to make the most out of it.
