Review - Battlezones miniature scenery system for Deadzone from Mantic Games

Assembling the Battlezones scenery is quite straightforward. There are connectors that connect to the holes in the wall sections. These should hold the buildings together, without using glue. I've tried to fiddle with that method, but after a while I had to give up. The connectors don't hold the pieces, buildings can fall apart during games, so I don't recommend using them unglued. If I miss some technique to do it right, please tell me in the comments section.

Sprues A, B and C are included in most sets. Sprues D and E are later additions, to complement the original sprues with more possibilities. I do not have these two sprues yet, but from the looks of them they could be useful.

The wall pieces are nice. Nothing special, but they really give a futuristic feeling to your games. Even if you don't use them as a clip-together scenery, the standard size makes it easy to plan with them, and to assemble your buildings easily.

The doors are designed to be able to open them, but I don't think it really works. The frame of the door is on Sprue B, while the door itself is on Sprue C. The little peg that would hold the door is so little that it's hard to get the door on and off during games. The door in the Industrial Battlezone sets are much better in this respect.
