I'm looking at the Gardens of Morr set and thinking about how it could be used in a horror/pulp game.

Anyone here have this? And if so, what are your opinions of it? Is it a good deal or what?

And yes…if I buy it, it will be my first GW terrain ever bought…

Thanks in advance…

It is a pretty good kit. It is heavy on skulls and so, but that can work to your advantage. It is fairly modular, which gives you flexibility.

I have it and I am thinking of picking up another.

I have the set, though haven't got around to assembling it yet. It looks like a pretty decent set – plenty of modularity and atmosphere, and should be pretty simple to assemble. On the other hand, it certainly has plenty of skulls.

If you like the set, you might want to buy two (or more) of them and combine them into an even bigger graveyard. Add in a couple of sprues of tombstones from Renedra for some more variety.

That said, if you want a nice graveyard, there are also some other options like this one from Tabletop World (not exactly cheap, though):

Looks good for Gothic Horror. How big is it?

I don't have it, but there is always the graveyard set from Ainsty Castings:

Lots of different add ons etc so you can create what you want, and no skulls if that's not your bag.

If you mean the one from Tabletop World, the dimensions are listed on the bottom of the page.

As for the Garden of Morr, you get about 80 cm worth of fencing per set, plus the four crypts/statues on their own bases. I haven't measured the size of those bases, but rough estimate would be somewhere around 8x8 cm or slightly more per piece.

I built and painted my Garden of Morr last year. The assembly was easy, the casting was very good.
I like the 3 crypts and the large statue the best. The fences have a few more than too many skulls on them for my taste.
I saw a picture in White Dwarf a few issues back that showed two sets combined to make a long masoleum building.

If one really likes the kit, then combining four of them together would give a really impressive graveyard: 80x80 cm area all fenced up, with a gate on every side, statue in front of every gate, and 12 crypts spread around inside.

Also GW makes a chapel building that would make for an interesting central building on a large grave-yard (it naturally has plenty of skulls as decorations):
