Those are really neat.

They are really good products, and the best part is that the prices are affordable (for painted stuff).

I'm a huge fan of everything 4Ground do, I really think they are raising the bar when it comes to laser cut products

I've seen these in the flesh and they are superb (which is why I brought some for my M&T games)

I like!!

I have built several of their kits and they go together beautifully. These FIW kits are very tempting, especially the blockhouse. While I am sure I could make one I do not think I could make one as nice.

Only the roofs let them down and there is nothing they can do about it. I would add some of the laser cut styrene shingles from Fenris Games, they are much easier to do than making your own from thin wood and just finish the buildings off nicely.

I am not entirely happy with the chimneys either, they might be better in resin but that would inflate the price.

I'm thinking about getting these to use in my Hillbillies vs Aliens game!

Very nice – more goodies from a great company

Quite nice. Chimney looks a little odd.

Yeah, these are fantastic. I ordered 2 of each of the 4 FIW buildings, received them in about a week over the Christmas Holidays.

Need the fort…

What scale are they?

Bizzbum Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member23 Jan 2013 3:55 p.m. PST

Nowhere on their website (that is easy to find) does it mention scale nor what they are the made of.. paper, cardboard, foam board, resin, styrene sheets.. what?

Anyone know?

28mm made of laser cut MDF board.

I think….

klingsor24 Jan 2013 7:45 a.m. PST

28mm scale and laser cut MDF which is like fibreboard but harder. Easy to cut and sand but it will split of you try to bend it and the dust is quite nasty. Overall quite an easy and pleasant if a little quirky material to work with. Quite absorbent so works very well with PVA glue (wood glue, Elmer's glue) but you do not want to get it wet. You can seal it with a coat of varnish.

Don1962 Inactive Member24 Jan 2013 9:13 a.m. PST

Are these hand painted, or is the MDF material pre-printed card stock?

klingsor24 Jan 2013 9:25 a.m. PST

Printed I would guess from the ones I have seen. I have only built the unpainted ones and have just looked at the prepainted ones in their bags. I cannot see how they could afford to do it otherwise as they made in the UK rather than the Far East but I have been wrong before and we be wrong again.

klingsor24 Jan 2013 9:29 a.m. PST

MDF is not card it is made with glue, it is a good bit stronger and generally thicker, the thinnest material I know of is 2mm thick which is one of the thicknesses 4Ground use. Thicker MDF is used for furniture and a lot of other things.

Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure.[1] MDF is denser than plywood. It is made up of separated fibres, but can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood. It is stronger and much denser than average particle board.

They come painted, and look just as good as the photos. They are an excellent buy, hands down!
