4ground buildings

Postby Frank » Fri Apr 25, 2014 1:40 pm

I have spent the last couple of evenings putting together some 4ground 28mm Japanese buildings that our club bought at Salute games show.

These are fantastic quality, and come ready painted though they are a complicated kit to build and there was much use of intemperate language, but I did really enjoy doing them. 4ground is a UK company though they do do free postage worldwide on orders of a certain size

I played a 15mm WW2 skirmish game,Fireball Forward, on Monday night using some of the European buildings and they look incredible.

Oh my word, those are fantastic looking!!!! I have to say, the Japanese buildings are most amazing, as I've never seen anything like it. Great thread!

They really are a great kit, the 15mm European buildings are good as well, ideal for Flames of War.

I like the look of the Rorke`s Drift kit as well but that would just not be as useful as the other stuff.

I could be soooooooo dangerous with stuff like this....I'd run totally out of space if I could build some of the dream layouts in my head. Maybe I should try and talk my wife into a setup like Wesley snipes had in an action movie years back where he lowered a giant table from the ceiling, suspended by chains, that had a huge layout of something like Napolionics. I wish I could remember what the movie was.

The Rorke`s Drift kit looks really great...... The Mega Set even included the Zulu movie..... :)

The Wild West sets look really great..... I've lived a few miles away from Tombstone, and visited it frequently.... these buildings would be welcome there.....

Great Stuff!!!!!

They are fantastic detail and the range has really grown over the last couple of years. We also have some of the western stuff for Dead Mans Hand,

Those are very cool! Love the basing on that one shot. These look also, like they'd be easy to store.
