I need to to take a village with me to Huzzah in Maine in two weeks, to use in a 40mm Renaissance game. My collaborator and I have used somewhat underscale buildings for 40mm battle games before, so I thought this would be a good excuse to get some Fold-flat buildings from Fat Dragon done. The building on the left is a basic 4x4 square, which I built a year or so back. The three stir one on the right is new today. Some of my 40s are here to give me an idea whether this looks right. Here's a view of the bigger one, each story extending a bit more... Once I had warmed up, doing another 4x4 small building, with a slightly different layer choice in the printing, only took about 45 minutes. I've three more already printed out today, so I'm hoping to get this finished this weekend. 6 should be enough for this game...
I back the Fat Dragon Ravenfell Kickstarter last year (or was it 2014?). I love Dave Graffam models, but one thing Fat Dragon has that Graffam doesn't is buildings that can collapse for travel or storage. Paper model time has been a bit scarce lately, but with a series of conventions coming up this year at which I'd like to run some miniatures games, I figured that it was time to dig into these models and see what I think of them in practice. After some fussing with my computer this morning to get it to communicate with my printer, I printed out Ravenfell Building 3, the simplest shape in the set, which they recommend as a first project. It takes 6 sheets of paper, two for the walls, one for the reinforcing block, one for the attic floor, and two for the roof. Here's the front side result, after popping it together and flattening it a couple of times. That's an old Ral Partha figure for scale. Here's the side view. This will certainly do for travel terrain. I will be interested to see how durable the buildings are. My next project will be a tower to get started on a small castle. (Fat Dragon's Borderland Keep.)
