If you are thinking about purchasing this remember that there is no single building design, so it will take a little imagination to create buildings. It set is gray, so unlike the front of the package, you will have to paint it to get that weathered look.
- Easily snapped together walls and accessories
- Can use multiple Pegasus sets to create large and complex structures
- Doors open
- No floor and roofs available
- If your going to more it around, you will have to glue the smaller accessories
- Some of the plastic parts coming off the sprues will need to be shaved a little before use
These are designed for use with miniatures wargaming. They have no roofs, so you can reach inside and place your riflemen at the different windows. There are brackets you can put in holes on the walls (the same ones hold gargoyles, lanterns, or blank fillers) to support an interior floor you can cut out of cardboard or plastic.
They do not provide floors or roofs because there are so many ways to build with a set. You can build a simple rectangle, leave pieces out for a square, have the jutting section shown on the box, or use a plain piece of corrugated plastic for a back wall and make it all the larger with the provided pieces for the front and sides. This is not "a model" to be built one way. It's more like a set of blocks in the shape of wall sections. On a diorama or the edge of a layout, you can place the blocks flat against the back wall and get a long stretch (or 3 storeys) of imposing architecture.
Everything is molded in plain grey plastic. The doors do hinge nicely, but if you want them brown, buy some plastic-oriented paint. To get a mottled grey will require applying black and darker grey with cut-up bits of cellulose sponge or crumpled newspaper (very little paint on the applicator, so it splotches). You might choose stone of a very different colour, yellow ochre or red sandstone or brownstone. Do wash off the mold release before painting.
We're very pleased with this, and have bought more sets from the same company.
You will have to take some time and cut/file all the sprue connection points down - the pieces won't stay locked together otherwise.
Additional DIY improvement ideas: magnetize the connection points; magnetize the bottom and use a steel sheet on your table (so you aren't constantly knocking things over); use a thin card board to build 2nd-story floors (the Ruins set comes with a couple).
