Terrain Shed Beckys Diner Review

Welcome to my latest review, this time I get to play with some of the new Terrain Shed products.

This is from Ascension range that we have already dipped into with the apartment block. This time we are going to look at Beckys Diner.

So the packaging is functional with a new shiny topper That the Bendy Board/Terrain Shed guys have got their hands on.

Next the parts we have lots of MDF (good thick robust MDF) and also some of the ‘Grey Board’ which we are seeing more of which help add little extra details without burning all the MDF apart.

Very nice looking kit!

BIG warning be very careful with the neon sign. It can be tricky to get the part out of the frame, a sharp knife and patience are a must.

Apart from that channel, the rest of the kit goes together incredibly fast with no messing about and little fuss.

Like the other review the grey board just adds that little more detail that makes the whole thing pop. Plus will make painting it more fun, can anyone say menu boards/signage round the outside? Yes?! Will go for it I am not that good a painter..

For added niceness we also have a roof that comes off and gives up a little counter and plenty of room for models/scatter terrain for whatever your needs are.

The roof fits snugly and wont come off unnecessarily during games.

It’s also worth pointing out the little details like the tiled floor and the supports in the corners means you can feel and see the quality in these kits.

Finally the scale shot, with the bacon delivery waiting for breakfast


Price – £12

Like the Apartment Building already reviewed, the kit is amazing value for what you get and I can’t think of something similar to this on my travels.

Once painted up it will make a nice little piece of terrain in a lot of games (although expect this to appear in my BMG games soon🙂 ).

Terrain Shed Apartment Building Review

Welcome to my latest review, this time I get to play with some of the new Terrain Shed products.

This is from Ascension range, I suppose we can call it early America feel. First up is the Apartment Building.

So the packaging is functional with a new shiny ‘topper’? That the Bendy Board/Terrain Shed guys have got their hands on.

Next the parts, we have lots of MDF and also some of the ‘Grey Board’ which we are seeing more of which help add little extra details without burning all the MDF apart.

Now for some gratuitous close shots of some of the detailing the TS guys are getting. Some brick work on the main building

Some of the Grey Board for the boarded up windows, some great texture on something so thin.

Overall the build was easy and the building went together like a dream and is incredibly sturdy feel to it.I built this with the help of a 4yo to give you an idea how easy it is…

Although I must admit in my excitement that I didn’t add the internal grey board for added detail as well I got excited….certainly didn’t forget.

Nice variation on each side, with you adding which details you want to.

The grey board really does make a huge difference to MDF terrain. I am looking forward to what this stuff can help the TS guys to pull off (no pressure😉 )

As you can see the internal grey board pieces you remember to add can make a big difference to the overall feel of these buildings.


A little scale shot for everyone, how a large big and gremlin got up there we are not going to delve to deeply into….


Price – £14

There are 2 options available for the same price derelict or not..

For the price this is amazing and can easy help fill out a 3×3 board with only a couple of buildings. They are imposing and if you put the effort in it should be feasible to make the roof come off etc. If you are so inclined.

But I am lazy so solid block of MDF for me🙂

You are going to struggle to find this sort of terrain at this price and quality so go pester the TS guys and check out the expanding range they are getting into.


Art of War (Malifaux) Review


Welcome to a review of some of the exciting and shiny things that AoWS are resurrecting out at the moment.

Today I am going to be looking at some of their Malifaux products.

Malifaux Core Tokens Set

Price – £16.99

A huge bag of everything you will ever need for malifaux…

Blast Markers

Nice blast marker, that have some nice little touches like the logos round the edge and also keeping a sort of poker chip feel to the marker.

Again for those knowing that accuracy is important here is the spot on measurement of the markers.

In game Markers (6 each)

Next we have the 3 markers you will generally need in the shape of scheme, scrap and corpse markers. Again we keep the poker chip feel of the markers, which I think is pretty cool.

Next we move onto the smaller tokens for in game effects,

7 Soulstones

A cool concept in which you spend your cache using little soulstones in a nice greeny colour.

Burning/Poison (10 of each)

You get plenty of these tokens and are visually going to be hard to miss during the game when next to the models. I would say that if you are running condition heavy crew (looks at McMourning and Kaeris) then you may need more than the ones you get in the set.

Fast/Slow (5 of each)

Lovely tokens that are pretty clever use of the +/-1 which from a distance is easier to association over the words fast/slow.

Activated (10 tokens)

For those players that like to ensure they don’t make mistake with activations these little ones will help loads with them. Again the tick is a nice visual association to have.

Buried (2 tokens)

Personally I don’t have much use for these markers, however from a point along with the activated markers. They will help in tournament play for identifying when a model is buried not dead for all players concerned.

Positive/Negative (5 of each)

These are another token I think are very clever as there are plenty of abilities/actions that will grant these (de)buffs to models and it is something that is easy forgotten during the game.

Defensive/Focus (5 of each)

Again something nice to have on the board when these things come into play. Would be worth getting more of them if you are playing 10T with all their shenanigans.

Paralyse/Reactivate (3 of each)

Nice looking tokens, I can never decide what is a good symbol for paralyze and reactivate but these work as well as others I have seen before. The numbers are probably about right unless you are using some very specific crews.


Like the Infinity set I reviewed yesterday, this is a great set to get you going for Malifaux. Most players are not going to need more tokens than what is in this set. OK, Ressers will need more corpses and poison counters and Arcanists may need more scrap and burning; Depending on the masters being used, but otherwise cracking work.

I will say some of the smaller sections are not deeply cut so when painted are a little difficult to read in places (see reactivate for example) but on the whole the entire kit is amazing quality and value.

Art of war (Infinity) Review

Welcome to a review of some of the exciting and shiny things that AoWS are criting out at the moment.

Today I am going to be looking at some of their Infinity products.

Super bag of goodies….

Infinity Anti Personnel Mine tokens (3 x 25mm)

Price – £1.99

First up some of the mine tokens available, these are nice and simple with the token plus upright section. You will not lose the token in this yellow🙂

The connection is snug and should stay that way for a long time, without the need for glue.

The skull I love and the work with the laser is amazing🙂

Finally the wording comes up really well with a lick of paint. Altogether a great little set. There are other mines available (website is an Aladdin’s Cave of goodies)

Infinity Core Token Set

Price – £7.99

Now for the really exciting bit the new batch of infinity tokens, that are slightly smaller than the usual ones. Which I think is really helpful as they take up less real estate on the boards and so are less intrusive.

So this core set is literally a mixed-bag of colourful plastic.

A boy do we get a healthy amount of stuff, although for those doing tournaments or lots of 300pt games a few more tokens maybe needed. However this is a great starting point for those starting the game.

10 Regular Order tokens

Nice tokens that match the colour of orders we see for regular ones

1 Lt. and 4 Command order tokens

I love the command tokens something very different which is right for these in the game🙂

3 Retreat tokens

I love the flag for this one, such a shame they couldn’t do white plastic for them..

3 Prone Tokens

I would have liked a couple more of these just in case I choose to hide all my army, not necessary I would like to think but perhaps 2 more maybe?

2 Irregular and 2 Impetuous Order tokens

This is probably a reasonable number of these tokens as it is going to be hard to have a catch-all number with some many possibilities in Infinity.

Extras – 3 Unconscious, 2 Wound, 2 Suppressing Fire, 1 Spearhead tokens

With how quickly my models die I would like to see some more unconscious tokens in the set, but that is my only issue.


Amazing tokens!!!

The quality is top-notch (with only really some of the tinee tiny lines not being cut perfect) and for the price you are going to struggle to find a better deal.

Now these are the newer tokens which are smaller than what people may be used, so will come down to personal choice but I for one like that the smaller ones take up less room on the board and as such are as distracting (on flip-side you may forget about them, but with my memory they could be frisbee side and I would still forget).

As mentioned the core set is great for those getting into Infinity or transitioning from the starter set cardboard tokens. But for those ITS lovers you are probably going to need extras of the key tokens like orders and if like me unconscious. Handy they do offer booster packs for various tokens so you can pick and choose what you need🙂

Overall, great tokens to have..
