General description:
This is quite the Model, with great variations in hight and shape it provides you a clear image of an Oil Refinery
Uses:
Unlike other buildings the Oil Refinery can be used effectively by all Factions. It has 2 effects. When controlled it grants that force 1 extra movement for the entire force. It also burns when destroyed creating a hazard.

Strategies and game play:
Protect this structure as it can provide both your units and Monsters extra movement that will be critical in advancement and destruction of your opponent. It can also be used as a weapon when you Slam or throw your opponent Monster upon it they take damage from the hit, + damage from destroying a building + 1 damage From the fire hazard.
Combos with other miniatures:
use you slow moving units to protect this structure
Ways to counteract it:
Protect your Oil Refinery as your opponent will destroy it given the chance
Strengths/Pros:
Helps every Faction and all units in the game

Weaknesses/Cons:
Big ole bulls eye target for your opponent

Artwork and aesthetics:
The Oil refinery is one of the best looking structures and it is also one of the unique designs (not copied and put on a different base like several of the other buildings)

Overall rating:
For a Plastic Pre Painted figure I will give this a 8 overall. the structure is appealing, The paint job simple yet solid, it is a unique shaped structure in the game.

I try to run two of them, that way I can keep one in the back and put all my long range units around the front one to secure it and get the extra movement.
