Gamemat.eu Medieval Town Set Review

Pimpcron takes an close look at these pre-painted terrain sets.

Howdy ya’ll! As I’ve explained before, I have bought tons and tons of terrain for my convention Shorehammer and it gives me a unique chance to give you a detailed look at some of the things I buy.

To assist in showing you what sizes things are, I will be using my Pimpcron model from my army. This review is actually two different sets of pre-painted terrain from Gamemat.eu and a stand alone terrain piece. All of these sets are hard resin and held up to transport, play and more transport for our convention. I imagine you don’t want to throw them around, but they are durable for everyday use.

Medieval Town Set

It can be found HERE.

If you know anything about the Pimpcron, you know I love little extras and small details on my boards because it brings the whole thing to life for me. I want a feeling that people actually live in my villages. The first thing that blew me away with this set is that is includes a TON of extra bits pictured below. Need objective markers? Look no further. This was something that I overlooked when I bought it, but when it arrived I was so pleased.

 

 

Aside from a well, a statue and a heap of little details, this set also comes with tabletop-standard painted buildings. In my opinion they are above Tabletop standard, but some of you really spend time on your terrain. With my convention coming up at the time of my order, I didn’t have the time or patience to paint/assemble a ton of terrain. Call me lazy, but … I am.

 

This set come with 3 of these buildings which are a little cramped for a Overlord, but the perfect size for human-sized populations. They are sturdy resin and multiple layers of paint make them pop.

If 3 cottages and lots of objectives/details weren’t enough for you, it also comes with my favorite piece of this set. The ruined building. It is roughly two times larger than the cottages

This building just creams Mordheim to me. Places to hide, places to get up for a better shot, I love it.

 

Gothic Temple

It can be found HERE.

This thing is roughly a foot by a foot and drips Chaos to me. It doesn’t block much line of sight, but makes a nice center piece for a town center, and this thing is priced really well.

Medieval Castle Set

It can be found HERE.

I have always wanted the old plastic GW castle set from back in the day. So naturally I had to pick this up. It comes with 2 ruined towers, 2 complete towers, 4 wall sections and 1 gated wall section.

I ended up buying two sets of this to make a decent sized castle with village houses in the middle. You can’t really make a full castle with just one of these sets, but most people don’t do that anyway with castle terrain. Every time I’ve ever seen one used it was always in straight sections to block line of sight.

 

The towers have hatches on top, windows, and a door at the bottom, very similar to the old castle towers that are no longer available.

I really like the ruined ones better than the complete ones, which offers hiding spots for your minis, and a wooden floor inside.

    Come on Pimpcorn, you mini looks sad all by himself. Time to populate that sucker.

    • orionburn III

      Agreed. Need more hookerbots.

  • t alm

    Why are all the pictures fuzzy? This is a professional website, please use a professional camera!

    • orionburn III

      Wait. Did you just use the words professional and BoLS in the same sentence?

      • t alm

        well… they are trying and these photos don’t try hard enough…

        • orionburn III

          I admit they are pretty rough.

          Pimpy is getting old. Those 2 megapixel cameras don’t get it anymore…lol

    • Lux

      I too am mad about the Robot Skeleton Pimp’s professionalism

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      technically something is only ‘professional’ if you are being paid, and I doubt Pimpcron is, so give the guy a break.

      Besides the photos are more than adequate to see the products.

      • Pimpcron

        You’re right Knight, I am not paid for this. Just really like their stuff. I will work on better photo quality though.

        • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

          I thought the pics were fine. Most people are looking at them on a 2″x3″ screen anyhow!

    • Pimpcron

      These are my own personal reviews, not studio reviews. It is my daylight bulbs in my gaming shed that cause the fuzziness. But good critique, I’ll try to use different light next time. That bright white light washes some thing out and makes lines not as crisp.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        do you use a tripod? The light looks adequate, if the shutter speed is good and you are using a tripod your cameras sensor may need cleaning if its an old camera.

        • Pimpcron

          I will have to check on shutter speed. I borrow my brother’s camera. I do use a tripod, but I’m certain the problem is the white lighting. It reflect something awful on light surfaces.

  • SiberianVI

    Lion El Johnson was here. and prefers the rustic dwelling for thine peasants.

  • orionburn III

    They look nice but seem a bit small. Would like to see AoS models used, but honestly I think they’d look oversized as well. The battlements (such as the top of tower) seem to short even for humans. Otherwise they look nice.

    • Pimpcron

      Yeah, I realize now that I should have used a Guardsman for the scale.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    Nice recap Pimpy. But man Mordheim musta got hit bad with the Old World Blowing up, if it is only a cream. Is this cream like a hair product quality or is it more like meant more a dairy consistency? These are the real important details we need to know!
    Looks like a good set!

    • Pimpcron

      I think we both know the cream we are talking about, sir. lol

  • AEZ

    For these amounts of cash I’d just go for GW stuff. It’s certainly acceptable on a table.. but the price would need to be significantly lower for me to prefer it above GW stuff. (Especially for GW games… because there the overkill in skulls on everyhing is fitting… for historical gaming this might be better :D)

    • Pimpcron

      I get seriously sick of all the skulls.

      • AEZ

        For an AOS table I like em :D, Skull vane manse is awesome

  • Matthew Pomeroy

    those are cool, but nothing is as cool as that pimp walking about in it 😀

  • BloodAngel

    I cream Mordheim too.

  • Mike X (Official)

    Scale is way off. The buildings are far too small.

    • Pimpcron

      Admittedly my scale model is an Overlord, which is bigger than a Guardsmen by quite a lot.

      • benvoliothefirst

        This is the first time I’ve seen your mini, I didn’t know it existed, and it is glorious! Who made it?

        • Pimpcron

          Thanks! I did. It was a rescue. My friend gave it to me for free, it was missing both arms, part of his crown, and his cape was messed up from a cat chewing it. I green stuffed all that stuff on and now he leads my army with his res orb cane and platform shoes. lol
