Fellow Brückenkopf author Siamtiger had a look at the “Honoured Imperium” terrain set from GW and came to the conclusion, that similiar to the Planetstrike crater for Warhammer 40.000 set the contents shown in White Dwarf and on the box art is not what you actually get in the box.
It seems that once again resin masters were painted and photographed and the actual plastic model has less sharp and slightly simplified details. Notice especially the back of the broken windows piece.
Here is the link to the review. It’s in German, but you can guess from the pictures.
I think the set provides still good value as both the statue and the broken aquila are huge, but nevertheless it’s a bad marketing move from GW.

Too bad, I was looking forward to this. A broken aquila isn't too hard to make yourself, but a real shame on the statue.
