Here are some pics of the terrain now that I have it all finished.

It is pretty remarkable how much stuff you get in the starter set. If you have a use for ruined fantasy buildings, and who doesn't, the set is probably worth it just for the terrain alone, especially if you sell off all the other bits.

Here is a top view with it all laid out on the board that comes with the game.

Here are two views from the side.

As you can see it pretty much fills the little board that comes with the game. If you built multi-story pieces it would obviously cover less area. Some of the pieces have been built so that they can stack but not in a terribly useful in-game way. Like they would add some cool factor to the look of the battlefield but in-game I can't imagine why anyone would want to climb up them.

If they release the starter terrain as a separate set I will definitely buy it. I might just buy the starter set again for the terrain and either sell the figs and cards and book or just sell the cards and book and keep the figures to turn into casualties so when a model falls in the game I'll have one to put down.

You can see the detail on the wall here:

This one was done with contrast paint. It took about 10 minutes to paint the whole thing after it was sprayed, including the wood part which was not done with contrast.

Here are two pieces that were done in a more traditional way.

The first is this look-out stand on the fallen head. I've kept these as two pieces and the ladder part thing was a bit of a beast to get together. The legs don't quite touch the ground the way I did it. So watch out for that. I didn't realize until it was all together and painted actually because it was easier to rest on its top while I was painting it.

The Bell tower and wall are done with standard paints and didn't take too much longer than the rest of it.

The tower thing falls over if you don't have the ladder part next to it so watch out if you are using it by itself or put it on a base of some sort. While I was spraying it it fell over and knocked the hand off of one of my night haunts.

Overall very pleased with the terrain. I'd give it an 8/10 for terrain sets.
