von Peter himself has always been a sucker for a nice piece of terrain. His envious eyes are constantly drawn to the grand style of terrain items. This isn't what is generally required however where the less glamorous types of terrain tend to be more useful for the average gaming encounter. By way of illustration a few ordinary peasants huts are more useful over a sequence of games than a couple of grand churches and a monastery. Not that one should totally close ones eyes to having a couple of grand churches and a monastery of course!
Being of a somewhat old fashioned disposition von Peter himself prefers his buildings to be manufactured in one of the multiple forms of resin that are available now a days. The latest fad of plywood or mdf buildings has as yet not stirred a craving within von Peter himself.
