Review Age of Sigmar: Skull Keep - A Curate's Egg
First Impressions: when you open the box are of a typical Games Workshop terrain piece made of chunky bits of plastic.
Manufacturing Quality: Pretty crummy, as I've come to expect from GW Terrain pieces. Nothing fits together properly. If you blow up my photos you will see that the walls almost touch. I deliberately didn't use plastic filler on this build.
Suitability For Wargaming: Excellent, it is tough, light and has plenty of room to get models on. And it breaks down into halves to put models on the first floor. All this makes it easy to store and transport.
Value For Money: Sigh, about average. £45 is a great deal of moolah for a cheaply produced, simple kit of dubious manufacturing quality, even if it is nicely designed and well thought out as a wargame piece.
Recommended?: Hmm, depends. If you really, really fancy it then go ahead but be prepared for a lousy build and a hole in your wallet.
The painting technique is simple: Spray with black primer, coat with black gloss, and then spray on the multi-effect.
