Hello everyone!

Today I invite youto watch thefirst Dwarf markers which are inextricably linked with my Dwarf treasure hunters.
The first marker is one of MiniMonsterssignpost of this REVIEW, while the second is a piece of "Dwarven Basing Kit" from Scibor Miniatures.
Of course, the markers fit to figures bases, added some dry pigment from Vallejo.

Welcome all visitors!
Today, quite unusual. Once upon a time there was no In Box set, and the more the element terrain.
Signposts, because of them mentioned, it does not plementing part of terrain where you can meet other adventurers and troublemakers (Elves and Rangers do not need these signs - they simply laying the stones and touch a leaf lying on the road;)).

The reviewed set is derived from the native Mini Monsters, which specializes in this type of wonderful elements of terrain, but not only.

The kit includes 5 models of posts and 16 boards made of high quality resin.
The elements do not have any traps that you need to gently remove by the modeller knife.
The height of the posts is 52-56mm, which is quite a lot of what you see in the pictures comparison.
The scale, of course, popular 28-30mm, ideal for use historical-fantasy wargaming.

The issue of contact and shipment also a plus. Quickly and easily (I'm on my set of signposts waited only three days).

The rating system as the most p…
