Area Nine Italian Buildings Review

For my birthday this year I was a very lucky WinnerDave, my wife bought me some Buildings for the Italy board I’m working towards.

I had this company brought to my attention by eBay no less, which is good as otherwise I don’t think I would have found them http://www.areanine.net/

I got the multi pack – 14 (in the middle), the church – 15 on the right and an out house – 10 on the left.
The multi pack consists of 4 buildings, 1 ruins, and 6 wall sections.

I made one small modification to them, which is to glue plasti-card inside the roofs and upper sections, so they don’t slide about too much (thanks to Andy for the suggestion)

This shot also gives you a look at the detailing on the floors…nice bit of parquet in the church.

 The walls are really rough, which makes it ideal for drybrushing and washing.

I really haven’t done these buildings justice with my paint job, I pretty much got them painted in one day, just in time for the Italy global campaign.

Admittedly I haven’t got around to doing the interiors…it’s not essential in my view but I will eventually one day…

So here’s the important bit…you can fit 2 medium sized bases in a regular house section.  The church can fit 6 medium bases in and the square areas are spotter size.

I’m so pleased with these buildings, they’re great quality, fun to paint (even if I over complicated it) and they look superb.  I can’t wait to use them in anger.  I’m definitely saving my pennies to buy some more.

Area nine terrain Italy range of buildings get an assault rating of [broken through the front line, support lines, and knocking at the gates of Berlin].

Thanks

Winner Dave
