G'day folks! A quickie here, it's Renedra's Ramshackle Barn. Today I'm trying out a Time-lapse software for my phone, so without further ado here's a video of me assembling it.
Like their Dark Age cottage (which I will review shortly) this comes on three sprues of grey plastic. Read more after the break.
|The first sprue with the gable ends and the roof and wall of the lean to.|
|Second sprue with side wall and roof section. There is two of this one in the box.|
|As you can see the barn is larger than the cottage. Well, it's a barn so it should be.|
To summarize, this is a kit that could wind it's way onto almost anybody's wargaming table, almost. I don't think the style is appropriate for ancients, maybe not dark ages, but should be suitable from 16th century and onwards. And in a fantasy setting like Warhammer of course. Detailing is nice with broken planks, doors ajar, ropes hanging on the doors. You also get two ladders, two pitchforks and an old wooden wheel as extras. Bits are always nice so that is a plus. The downside is no internal detailing and that the doors are already molded onto the walls which makes it hard work to open them up. This is a compromise to bring the price down, since interior details and separate doors would almost certainly mean more parts which would need an additional sprue.
I haven't talked about the price yet, which is a bargain; £15 RRP, which means you can get it for less if you look around a bit.
I give this kit 4 out of 5. The lack of interior details drags it down a bit, but it's a damn nice kit for almost no money.
