Pop-up terrain has always excited me as easy to store and easy to set-up, so I was intrigued when I saw this Kickstarter: Even though I already have a lot of terrain, I decided to go in on it, especially because it seems pretty inexpensive for what you get ($68 for three large battle-boards and ten-plus smaller add-ons)
So, many moons agone I backed Stonehaven's Kickstarter for pop-up terrain. Slightly fewer moons agone, I backed their next Kickstarter for halflings - which also included pop-up terrain. And a couple of days ago, I realized that it would cost me quite literally half as much to buy a new inkjet printer as it would to get replacement cartridges for my clunky old printer. By all of these elements combined, I figured the time had come to start assembling the pop-up terrain I had so eagerly anticipated. I started about as simply as possible - with the grassy field. Lessons were learned, not least of which that I have no idea what I'm doing and barely the necessary coordination required... but somehow, I muddled through and made a passable hex. I added in the pond, to make it a little more interesting (and because it was there). There were a few bits and bobs left over, so after rereading the original thread we had on the pop-up kickstarter, I decided to see how coloured pencil would work with the sepia print. I think, when things have dried, I'm going to colour in at least the pond... probably not the whole field, but a blue pond should stand out nicely. I have others to print, and a complete set of the pre-printed, colour terrain. Watch this space for further developments.
