Welcome to the world of Ziterdes!
Orc PalisadeThese models are cast in hard foam. They are made to stand alone or be joined with related models and incorporated into larger scenes.
This model is packaged the Ziterdes way, by wrapping the model is plastic and gluing it to a sturdy card sheet.
The foam features a texture of stone, wood, and dirt. Suitable wood grain and other characteristics are apparent with crisp and deep undercuts and borders.
DetailThe timber and stone palisades are set into high steep earthen berms. Debris such as wagon wheels fortifies these defensive walls.
Painting and InstructionsThe models are simply pre-painted with brown and gray. No actual instructions are included, other than looking at the painted examples on the company webpage.
ScaleJudge the versatility of this intended 25-28mm defensive position for your desired scale with the photos I staged. You will find 28mm fantasy figures, military figures of 1/48 & 1/35, and 1/48 & 1/35 tanks. 28mm is equal to 1/56 - a military gaming scale including the Italeri World of Tanks model kit line.
ConclusionI think this set is a worthwhile addition to my gaming scene, and even workable for 1/32-1/48 scenes.
Orc Palisade has good detail and is an appetizing addition to an encampment. Detail includes convincing texture and fine sculpting of the wood grain and gravel.
Modelers of many genre will appreciate this Ziterdes model. I look forward to incorporating it into a larger scene or a vignette. Recommended.
