Review

Like so many accessories, all of the pieces in this set could be useful for any number of other campaigns.

The contents are, in the order pictured above, left to right:

Top Row

Tent, gabion, chevaux-de-frise.

Second Row

Log fence, dead horse

Third Row

Wicker fence, ladder, long ladder, pile of logs, sandbags, sandbags.

The tent is about waist high and would be for one or two men, but a larger one would have been nice to see. The wicker fencing panels have no means of standing, unfortunately. The downed horse is an item often requested by diorama builders but rarely provided by manufacturers, so it is good to see one here. The two lines of sandbags are both two bags high, and differ in that one is constructed in such a way that they can be placed end to end to create a longer row.

Some of these items have been seen elsewhere, but there is plenty that is new. The sculpting is fine on all pieces, and they should be very useful for most Civil War scenes.
