Old West 28mm Buildings by 4Ground

OK, so there is a relatively new outfit in the UK that makes scale laser-cut wood terrain/buildings. They are 4Ground (link here). I got interested in their 28mm wild west buildings (made for the game, Dead Man's Hand) late last year, and ordered up a set from Architects of War (link here).

The building kits are very reasonably priced, and come in these plastic bags.

As you can see, all the pieces are pre-painted, and the kits come with very clear assembly instructions.

The laser-cut pieces pop easily out of their frames, and the entire kit goes together with a little white glue.

I started off with a couple of the relatively simple one-storey "side street buildings." Here, the interior is finished. The roofs come off, so the interiors are easily playable spaces.

This is side street building #2, with sub-basement, roof and boardwalks constructed.

And here, the whole thing is put together. I built this while watching a about 90 minutes not paying very close attention to the construction process.

Here are side street buildings #1 and #2 together. Quite lovely and easy to assemble. I'm going to move onto the more complex multi-storey buildings next. Great wild west flavor!

'Til next time!


  1. Looks excellent Kevin. I have a few of these buildings as well from a kickstarter for Blackwater Gulch
