Post Apocalyptic Ruins set



Its funny how things turn out. I had been gathering some bits to make another large ruin to give some more height to games as most my ruins are simple corner ruins or single floor. A friend of mine Gary Lynn who I've known a good while and whose love is to make terrain for of all sorts games happened to show me some Post Apocalyptic ruins via messenger that he had made and was about to list to sell. So after a little bit of thought (possible 1 or 2 seconds) I decided to purchase them.  Not just to save myself some time and effort, but because they were such an awesome set and would expand my table massively as well as giving me my tall ruins.

The full set including shipping was £90 but when you see the pics and detail you can see they are well worth it. I am going to have a think about some scatter terrain and have a chat with Gary.

Shipping was by courier and arrived very well packed. They are also really solid and sturdy as well lots of cool details every time you look at it. Well worth the money in my opinion!










Now in my possession i got some figs out for some pics.




Here's a little video I made just showing the set of 5 ruins.
