Ammo Boxes, Crates, and Ruined Walls Review



scotia grendel ammo crates, boxes and ruined wallsWelcome to today’s review in which we are checking out 2 sets of 28mm sci-fi scenics available from Scotia Grendel. We’ve previously had fun with some of Scotia Grendel’s vehicle kits which you can see here, so we’re looking forward to seeing what their terrain has to offer. As we’ve mentioned before Scotia Grendel’s website is a treasure-trove of interesting models, some of which are from ranges that you might have thought were no longer available, so is well worth a look.

Here you can see the 2 packs of 28mm sci-fi scenics we ordered from Scotia Grendel, each of these boxes is roughly 5.5 x 3.5 x 1.75 inches and is tightly packed with resin terrain. As you can see they are brightly packaged and are originally designed for the game Void, but will work well in many other wargames too.

Firstly, we’ll take a look at the Ammo Boxes & Crates pack, priced at £10 (around $16) direct from Scotia Grendel. The contents of the box are well protected in 2 small bubble wrap pouches.

One bubble wrap bag contains 2 sets of Crates while the other bag contains 2 sets of Ammo Boxes. The 4 terrain pieces we received are all solid resin, and are well cast with no defects.

The 2 sets of Crates are identical, and well detailed, representing wooden supply crates in your wargames. As you can see in this photo, they have a nice wooden grain affect which should look great even with a very quick paint job.

The Ammo Boxes are also really nicely detailed and represent ammunition storage to keep your soldiers well equipped. Again, both Ammo Box pieces are identical and well cast.

We’ll show you some photos of the Ammo Boxes and Crates in action later in this review, but for now lets open up the Ruined Walls, another 28mm sci-fi scenic set priced at £10 (around $16).

As mentioned on the front of the box, this set contains 8 Ruined Wall pieces including 4 long sections, 2 corner sections and 2 short sections.

Here is a close up of one of the longer sections, as you can see its nicely cast and again has great details including chipped bricks and cracked plaster.

Here is one of the corner sections, each of the Ruined Wall pieces has rubble around its base making them very stable and unlikely to fall over during your games.

Using both of these kits together, we quickly knocked up a small fortified area including Ammo Boxes and Crates so the troops will be well supplied and protected.

The next 2 photos will give you an idea of scale, here you can see our fortification being occupied by a small squad of 28mm Warhammer 40k Space Marine models.

The lower sections in the Ruined Walls are just the right height for 28mm infantry to fire from in relative safety.

We also found that there were enough pieces in these two kits to make 2 smaller fortifications if required.

We really like these 2 scenic sets from Scotia Grendel, they look great and are really useful in our games. We also think they are quite reasonably priced for the amount of scenery you get. The Ruined Walls can be placed in lots of different arrangements to create fortifications and the Ammo Boxes and Crates would make great objectives to fight over or just more good looking accessories for your battlefield. Let us know what you think of these scenic sets and if your would use them in your wargames, using the comments below.
