Having a lot of details and small scenery-pieces is what really makes a gaming board, in my opinion.
My Pulp Alley campaign will soon move to North Africa and I need more stuff for that setting. While shopping for scenery for my Pulp Carnival setting I found this, MDF-scenery for a North African market place.The Souk - Set Dressings by Sally 4th gives you a lot of stuff; 8 market stalls, 2 carpet racks (with carpets), 6 benches, 2 wheeled barrows, 4 boxes and finally 2 fruit display crates (that I haven’t assembled yet, as they are quite fiddly). All this for £20 - great value!
I assembled as per instructions and painted everything to get a more pleasing look compared to the ‘raw’ look. The carpets were cut out and painted with a dilute sand-colour on the reverse, to avoid the stark white from the paper. I also painted two canopies with a dilute yellow, to get some variability. I might paint a couple more in the future.
All in all a super set, well worth the money and definitely a must-buy for pulp-games in North Africa or any appropriate historical setting. Rome, maybe.
