Bad?… or it's the scale?

At least for me, it's not particularly inspiring. The terrain from Kromlech makes me say, "Oh, wow!" but this stuff doesn't.

I'm also concerned about the details if scaling down to 15mm.

I like the terrain. Other than the Sandwich Shop, I could easily see all of it spending time on my tabletop. But …

#1 the all-in price of over $100 USD is too much (in my opinion) for what is there. I have spent less, and received a lot more, from other terrain campaigns, and …

#2 the hanger pieces should have some sort of clip mechanism to hold the wall and roof pieces together. Those buildings are large, the walls are tall, and I can see a bumped table shaking things up a lot. If a roof just balancing on the walls got bumped and crashed down, models could be badly damaged.

#3 – unrealistic expectations on the creator's part. Their first stretch goal is at 16K! With a 500 Euro funding goal, there should have been a bunch of SGs at much lower levels (say, 1K and 1.5K and 2K and 3K and 4K and 5K before a jump to 7.5K and then 10K, etc). This campaign will be lucky to crack 2K total. So there will be no SGs. For terrain campaigns, the SGs can make or break the funding levels.

So while I back a LOT of terrain kickstarters, I passed on this one.
