Kromlech’s Mechanicum Industrial Sector kits can bring some industrial platforms to your tabletop, but how well do they stack up? Check out this review and find out.
After getting several of the Kromlech Orcenburg Tabletop Scenics I decided to pick up a few of the Mechanicum Industrial Sector kits as well. The quality is just as good as you would expect from Kromlech.
As you can see from the picture to the left they have a lot of detail: panels, bolt heads, cross members, etc. Each walkway has it’s own distinct style, be it a grid, hex, railing or what have you. There is a lot of variance so it doesn’t look ‘cookie cutter’.
Below is a scale shot with some Dream Forge troopers.
One of the great features about the Mechnicum sets is their ability to be interchanged. I built another kit and all the ladders, ramps, support, and walkways fit it as well. So with just a small investment you could have a nearly infinite number buildable table tops.
I don’t have any pictures of the combined setup but I will get them soon. I played several Kill Team missions just using the Kromlech Mechnicum terrain and it was a blast. With all the ramps, ladders and walkways there is always a number of ways to get to your opponent but also ways to try to escape. They also offer lots of places to take cover. While I haven’t played the new Necromunda yet I did play loads of the older versions and this would work wonderfully for that as well.
So if you are looking to build a great Kill Team or Necromunda board this would be a great start. It’s affordable at $30, it’s high quality/sturdy and it looks great. In my haste to get this built I made a few small errors such as gluing the platforms to the supports and the base plate to the long ramps. It’s not a hard build but I was doing it off and on over a long weekend and wasn’t paying enough attention, so take your time and think about how you may want to mix and match other kits when building it.
