Today we have another piece from the Jerry Wargate collection. This is a Games Workshop Manufactorum, the kit for which can be had from their online store. Our building here was actually part of an Imperial Sector that Jerry obtained second-hand and we broke apart into it's constituent kits. You can check out the first part of this story here, in our last Terrain Log.
We wanted to get more "intact" buildings with these kits, so we set up a few bases and took a look at what made a good footprint for a building that could be stored with the others we already have here most easily. This is one of the pieces that always seems to make it onto the table for some reason. Folks just seem to like it.
The Manufactorum is quite nice and large on the board. It blocks line of sight quite well, and since it's a closed building presents a different challenge than your basic ruins. Although it's swabbed all over with the iconography of the Mechanicus and the Imperium, I think it works quite well for a lot of different games where weirdness is bountiful.
Still, there are two more buildings in this set that have not yet been built! We have a lot of terrain to talk about in the Terrain Log, and I especially want to get to the ready made Battlefield in a Box stuff we've obtained for the club. Also, sorry about the long wait this time between posts - it's been nearly a week. Time for Bone to get with the program!
