I had gone to Salute with the intention of having an enjoyable walk around, maybe see if I could play in a few demo games and of course pick up the odd bits and pieces but no big purchases were planned. This went out of the window however when I wandered past one of the WW2 display games near 4Ground's stall and saw this beautiful church. With a certain someone whispering in my ear that I should treat myself I gave in to temptation and pre-ordered it. As far as I am aware at the time of posting the Church is not yet on general sale so I thought I would do a quick review for anyone considering getting it for when it is released. With a 15% show discount I got the church for £115.00 which is not cheap but considering the cost of getting something similar in resin/plastic and then getting it painted to a high standard I think it is a reasonable price. A couple of weeks later it was delivered by UPS (well would have been if I had been in) well packaged in a sturdy box.
All in all I am very pleased with the church and would recommend it to anyone willing to part with the cash. I can't fault 4Grounds customer service either as they are sending me the replacement parts for the archway free of charge with my next order.
This church will be the centre piece of my first skirmish board for my Lovecraftian Pulp project along with some excellent stone walls and gravestones also from 4Ground. This will be a spooky rural church yard. I already have plans to get their Police Station and Warehouse amongst other things to create various terrain board set-ups including an urban board and a dock side board.
So stay tuned for more posts on my Lovecraftian pulp project as I get the board and minis ready for the first scenario; Lost Marbles!
