Geeking Out – Multiverse Terrain, building a Dark City

Hello gang, it’s time to get back to constructing Gotham, Starling, or whatever other Dark City your heroes inhabit.

This time however, we have a little help (and not one but two prize giveaway) from the fine folk at

First up, the Tattoo Parlor (CLICK HERE TO BUY). Amazing to build, with excellent and highly detailed online instructions (mostly); lovely detailing, though the window frames are verrrrry fragile.

The roof is a separate piece, as you can see, though I’ll be attaching mine.

This is where the niggles appear. Minor irk: there’s a fractional gap either side of each door. Easy to cover but still. Less minor irk: the A.C. unit above the door has about a 1mm gap either side of it once fitted. More major irk: the tattoo display stand needed about 2mm carved out of each tab slot to fit the back section.

These slightly spoil what’s otherwise a generally excellent kit. Also, the fact that there’s no instructions for the security light or signs vexed me a little. It’s still a beautiful kit and great to build, but these are somewhat frustrating, and would likely be even more so to the novice.

The use of matte board is interesting. It’s not something I’ve encountered before in a kit and, being like very thin foamcore, it’s used to add fine detail here; door handles, the window frame and grille at the side, and the sign frame. It’s easy to use, though do be sparing with the glue.  It’s also nicely customizable if you have other bits lying around.

Overall it is an excellent kit, albeit not perfect, and at under €20 good value at that.

Anyway, what would any city be without infrastructure? What we need are… Bus stops! (CLICK HERE TO BUY)

These are incredibly quick to build – 5 minutes, and you’re done.

A great addition to any city street, and they come with printable signs, bus timetables, posters for Ferris Air, the circus, Mask of Zorro and more! Fab for under €10.

Now that you’ve seen what’s available, you want to win your own, right?

Well, we have a set of each available, and two sets of stuff means two ways to win:

1) Tattoo Parlour: To enter, just carry out the usual social media shindig – like, share and comment on Facebook or Twitter; each interaction gives you one entry.
2) Bus Stops: Comment here on this or any other aspect of Geeking Out! We’d love your feedback, so feel free to let us know what you think, and what you’d like to see from us next!

    The bus stops are exactly what i need for my MUMG board. Bringing some much needed not to big buildings to the game.

    5 min. to build. That must be to good to be true.

    Nice review! I own a couple of Multiverse’s buildings (corner apartment, diner) and I have to say I love them. Great addition to my table!

  3. Looking great! I only own one of Multiverse’s buildings due to the Canadian dollar being so low, but it was worth every penny. Can’t wait to get more to add to my collection.

    Although most of your issues with the kit was minor with the exception of the one, I’m actually surprised as mine went together like a treat.

    Glad to hear about both the positives and negatives though :)
