Epicwargaming.com's Fortress Kit
by alessandro b. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/21/2015 08:12:00

The Epicwargames Fortress in only one word: BIG!

The kit is designed to be used for 15-25 mm scale battles, without any rescale. Used at 25 mm scale, the fortress can by a worthy competitor/substitute of the warhammer Fortress, only to name one. At 15 mm, it's HUGE! Door, windows and decorations like shields and flags comes in two scales, 15-18 mm and 25 mm, so you can build one fortress and use in both scale only changing these particulars; doors uses a smart "slide between" mode to be placed without glue. The kit is fully modular (towers, gate, walls , angles, connectors), with plenty of internal support, brace and weighting to add sturdiness. There are three battlements styles and two buttress styles allowing customization. The stone texture is higly believable, the resolution is "absurdly" high and this means that it's look really rock-solid. The main feature of the kit is the gate, with working doors and bridge, a MUST! The assembly process vary from easy to rather difficult (the gate); the instructions are quite clear but you need a little thinking before start building.

The only downside I've found is, ironically, in the high resolution : 1) printing is not straight process as you need to work a little with printer settings (scale adjusting and so on); 2) instructions comes in the same high resolution and there are some compression/resolution issues (scarcely readable fonts) when you want to read on a PC monitor as I usually do save paper and ink, so is better print out everything.

Anyway, a great kit, full of possibility at an unbeatable quality/price rating.

This set is an unbelievable deal! It truly is a fortress in every aspect. -The texture is such an excellent choice, even up close it looks like real stone. -The instructions are easy to follow with detailed step by step pictures. -The walls are have supports throughout them to ensure they will support the weight of any model. And I mean any! I loaded mine up with metal minis with no signs of sag at all. -The kit is huge! The versatility allows you to build the fortress that you want. Simply print the walls, corners, towers, etc. -And lastly, I can't forget to mention the gate and bridge. IT WORKS!

This kit raises the standard in paper terrain. With many other paper models I feel like there is an element missing, like quality was sacrificed for cost. That is not the case here. This kit is beyond belief and well worth the money. I will be waiting anxiously for the next model from epicwargaming!

What can I say... but thank you so much for that review Victor Barron :D I did spent about a year working on the Kit and it looks like it shows in your review. I will be updating the Fortress Kit soon to include another fortress model, which will be free for all those who have already bought the Kit. So keep an eye out for that eh. Thanks again Dave
