CNC Miniatures Scenery Sci Fi Bridges - Review

While I was ordering up my CNC Miniatures Scenery Sci Fi Walls from Underground Wargames, I thought it would be cool to have some bridges between my Bandua Wargames Q-Buildings.


So I added CNC Miniatures Scenery Sci Fi Bridges to my order to see if I liked them, and I'll tell you now that I'll definitely be ordering another set.


Unboxing

Like the Sci-Fi Walls, the sprue comes in cling-wrap

And here's everything out of the wrap

And then punched out of the 'sprue'

There was a layer of paper backing on this sprue (which wasn't there on my Sci Fi Walls),
which made punching the pieces out of a sprue a real pain

Some of the pieces were damaged when I was punching them out of the sprue,
but nothing major that couldn't be fixed up later


Assembly

No WIP shots - assembly was very quick and straight forward

And with some 28mm miniatures for scale

I was a little worried that the bridges wouldn't fit on my Bandua Q Buildings,
but they fit great


Conclusion

  • At AUD$10 for a large bridge and a small bridge, I think it's a great purchase and adds a great gameplay element to Infinity tables
  • The product has a distinct sci fi look, consistent with the CNC Miniatures Scenery range
  • I'm not sure if the product I received was faulty (it wasn't what I experienced with the Sci Fi Walls set), but nothing that the hobby knife couldn't fix
I'll definitely be grabbing another set (or two!) next time I get around to putting an other through.

Sync out.

  1. Do they fit together style wise? By that I mean the Bandua buildings and the bridges?

    Also in regards to that issue you had, the bridges are one of the older CNC sets, and they all suffer from that issue. I once played around with the fantasy tavern/dwelling buildings and had that issue with most pieces.

    Mousemuffin, the designer, said something on the forums about a new mdf supplyer which changed the thickness, and my guess is those bridges are made using the older mdf or older stock, while the walls are defiantly made with the new stuff.

    1. I guess the style compatibility between the Bandua buildings and the CNC bridges is subjective, but in my opinion I would say that it's 'acceptable'.

      Thanks for the insight into the CNC products - I'll take it into consideration on my next CNC purchase :)
