I think the 2nd set of buildings are generally 100% larger (twice as big) as the first set, some even larger.

The Dieppe "double" building (holds 8 medium bases) depth is equal to the width of the standard house (holds 4 medium bases) and its width is the same as twice the depth of a standard house. So in terms of floor space it's exactly double and then it has the “outhouse addition” as a kicker. The church is more than twice the size of a standard house. The Corner market house will hold 10 medium bases so has more than twice the volume of the standard house. I guess we’ll see how big the Arnhem Manor House and Farm House/Barn but for the three known they are all twice the size of a standard house or larger and I don’t see why we’d expect the others not to be likewise a good value.

I went ahead with the $240 subscription I guess mine was $240 vice $250 because I had already pre-ordered the Bastogne Church? Cheaper in the long run and has the Ruined Church kicker on top of that. If somebody thought the first set of buildings was a good deal I’m puzzled that they would not see the 2nd set as a good value as well.

I fully understand that dropping $240/$250 is one shot is not easy for all to do but I prefer this as I was always waiting for the “shoe to drop” on my set one subscription and making sure I had enough funds in my “hobby” checking account for when a new house shipped was a bit of a drag. This month I got two houses in one drop and that was a suprise that I was lucky I had the money in my account to cover. This new way they are paid up and I just wait for when they come in.

I hear you Steven on the ruined church not fitting in with set #1 so well, but I have 5 of those “Jadgpanther” rubbled houses and I also expect BF will add other rubbled houses in set 3 just as cratered roads were added after the “normal” dirt and paved roads. I think we'll have kit to match soon enough.

Village Church: Bastogne
Terraced House: Dieppe
Corner Shop: Nijmegen
Manor House: Arnhem
Farm House & Barn: Reims
Church (Ruined): Lille

Well it's 5 x $50 with a bonus church. My only nitpick that you would think they would try have more of a common theme... ie: have the corner shop look more french-like.

I want those modular row apartments you see in the V3 rulebook. I would kill for those, look exactly like my brother's apartment in Denmark haha. I'd just have to paint them a godawful pale yellow stucco and add bikes leaned up against the wall near the door.

I want to do the large subscription but don't want to drop that much coin in one shot. I thought that the system of they had worked great. Oh well

You can still do that thou there are 2 subscriptions 1 where you pay all at once and get a free ruin and 1 where you pay as they come out.

Thanks;
Mike

Mike I know but I wanted the ruined church as well (like the bonus stuff that came with the last subscription).

I just got my subscription, which means if we ever need more tables I will be able to add a desert and a European table into the mix, if ever needed.
