I remember when laser-cut MDF terrain began to appear on the hobby scene a few years back. I wasn't a fan mainly because it all looked too neat and crisp. But it's certainly a low-cost way to generate a lot of terrain, fast.

I spent a little bit of extra time (not too much) on my MDF kits and was able to turn them into something I'm proud of. Read more at the blog: link

And here's what I'm talking about in the blog post.

VERY nice! Really.

In the unpainted pics, I wasn't seeing it. But in the painted ones? Woah. Really comes together. You have every right to be proud of them!

Nice job. I like the buttresses. I've been doing something similar for my 40K city fight project.

Its my first time using MDF buildings and I'm really enjoying them looks like I'm not the only one.

Also very nice!

I think I've always been pretty "meh…" about MDF buildings as they're so often depicted unpainted/unadorned…

Agree it took me along time to take the plunge into MDF but it can be very cost effective compared to resin or even commercial plastic kits. It perhaps takes a little more work to get good results but for those on a budget (like me) worth a look.

Rest assured .. Your stuff does not look 'budget' at all :-)

Thanks for the comments and feedback, fellas.

Rupert, your buttresses are awesome! I'm going to have to borrow​ that technique.
