A quick post on the 10 / 12mm Minifigs version versus the 1/144 Panzer Depot model. I have finally decided which one to go with so thought I would share my decision

Very lovely as you'd expect! Salute release at Great Escape Games.

In the first post it looks like the tmp bug has struck again.
As for the real post those buildings do look great. Thanks for posting it Stuart.

Wow! Love the shot gun houses and all the other buildings. Makes me want to collect and run some 1930's gangland games. Or good for some good old fashion pulp or 1950's Martians invading small town America.

While we are discussing terrain for "the Chicago Way", is anyone making 28mm plastic or resin figures for the game, or for the period? North Star might be a likely candidate if such a thing is initiated.

Copplestone, Blue Moon, and Dixon already have a dedicated line of figures, just wanted to name three.

Nice buildings, especially the civilian houses.

And we have a gangster range as well (Mob Wars)

We are releasing a lovely new range of metal figures at Salute.

And resin vehicles.

The first thing I'm going to do when I get those prohibition figures is to reposition the guys arm holding a Badge. I just cannot see that figure moving around the table into various actions situations waving his badge all the time.

Good stuff! Are these bldgs. only going to be exclusive to (through) GEGs? BTW -- looked on the webbie -- I can see it, so the maintenance period must be over -- and am VERY tempted by this new game. I played a "Prohibition Era" game staged with another rule-set at "Fall In! 2015" and am very drawn to this genre… And I love _The Sting_. "Ya' follow?" thumbs up

The buildings will be widely distributed to retailers, etc, and we do post worldwide!

I just got some of these kits and I have to warn people that there are some issues. I do not know if it is warpage or shrinkage/expansion but these kits do not go together easily. The tabs and slots are misaligned by a couple of millimeters in many cases. Some window frames did not fit in the cutouts. Some part numbers are wrong in the instructions. Etc.

All correctible, but mostly annoying.

Note that I reached out to 4Ground about this a few days ago and they have not responded.

Martimer: I do not know if it is warpage or shrinkage/expansion but these kits do not go together easily.

I had a lot of trouble with the oversized window frames in the tobacco and jewelry shops. They are so thin and frail they're almost impossible to cut off the sprue piece without breaking, and when you do get them off, they're so flimsy they won't hold their own shape, but instantly curl up.
I've had nothing but good experiences with 4Ground kits before, but those two had me tearing my hair out.

Wow these look great

I've built several of these building and they were very enjoyable projects!
