If you are after a spectacular 3D card model of a traditional blacksmith's forge & ancillary premises, in a scale suitable for your miniatures to stand around, this is worth a look.

The actual model is beautiful to look at and incredibly detailed. Colours are vibrant, yet realistic; and the printing is crisp.

The instructions are excellent and easy to follow with clear stage-by-stage illustrations that make quite a complex build a lot less scary than it otherwise might be - and the results look rather pretty if incongruous sitting on my desk.

That's the only problem, really. What am I going to do with it? A pretty diorama is all well and good - and makes a terrific advertisement for a gaming group if you can persuade the likes of a local library to let you set it up there - but it is not really practical for gaming purposes. Even if you do use miniatures, trying to manoeuvre them around such a structure becomes fiddly and time-consuming and distracts from the fun of the combat or whatever else is going on. As eye-candy: brilliant!
