Multiverse Gaming – Dark City 30 Street Furniture Review

DSC_0778

After working on the Corner Apartment Building Review earlier this week I moved my focus onto my second review of some terrain from the wonderful people at Multiverse Gaming Terrain. This one covers the much smaller but no less valuable Street Furniture set. This one, more so than most of their other kits, seems like it is made for the Batman Miniature Game. Each crew will need at most 3 lampposts and 3 sewer markers to cover the standard game setup, and maybe more depending on the crew taken or strategies selected and this set will cover that wonderfully.

First and foremost, let’s take a look at how they come to you…

Lamposts-1

I have to admit it was one of those kits that I took my first look at and was fairly perplexed as to how it would do together (the lampposts mainly, the sewer covers are fairly simple :-P), but the instructions, available as download from Multiverse Gaming Terrain’s website, where so clear one look was all it took to know what to do 🙂

The only advice I would give on the construction is to be extra careful when cutting out the smaller ‘rings’. They are fairly thin, and even a small slip with your hobby knife and you’ll chop ’em to bits.

Here’s how they looked once glued together…

Lamposts-2

And with the Batman, to give a sense of scale…

Lampposts-3

Finally here’s my thoughts on the pros and cons of this kit:

Pros:

Cheap; Another bargain kit, coming in at 5.99 euro (about £4.30), two of these kits will sort you out with everything you need for Batman(or any other games) for under a tenner 🙂

Simple; The whole set only takes about 20 minutes to get together

Quality; As with the Corner Apartment Building it feels strong and secure

Cons:

Stability; The bases on the lampposts are fairly small and I would like to add some more to them, just to make sure they don’t get knocked over during a game (not that that would damage them, just a minor annoyance when you’re gaming away)
