Hi all

I am looking at my next purchase will probably be spending a bit. Im torn between Crescent Root and Kerr and King. Can anyone offer any advice. I have seen the Cresent Root Buildings painted….very nice but the extras like the courtyards offered by Kerr and King are very nice as well.

Thanks in anticipation.

I have and really like both. The Kerr and King building's windows and doors are on the small side for 15mm. Conversely the Crescent root building's are on the large size. I do however freely mix them myself as the difference doesn't bother me.

If I could only have one of the two I would probably go with the Crescent root buildings due to the better variety with the taller buildings.

But really you can't go wrong with either one. They are both nice clean casts and are well done.

The Kerr and king are also made out of a more brittle resin than the crescent root buildings. This is not too important to me except that my kerr and king building's did get some damage in the post where the crescent root one's did not despite comparable packing.

The sturdiness of the crescent root buildings is what sold me. I run a lot of convention games and they get abused. I just toss them all in several boxes, no padding. They have never broken, scratched or chipped in the 7 years I have been gaming with them.

I have the 28mm buildings.

I have the Crescent Root desert buildings in 15mm and am very pleased with them. Top notch work and the best option in my view.

Both are great in my opinion as well, although I have far more of the CR ones. You are spoiled for choice!
