Gorey had a pop up book for Dracula... and once you reminded me.... Yeah, I can see the similarities.   But I am an enormous Gory fan... and can recite the entirety of the The Gashlycrumb Tinies Alp

Come over to the paper side,   we will let you use the sacred glue, scissors and coloured pencils!

Stonehavens Terrain Kit Kickstarter is now live.   https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2087444096/pop-up-miniature-terrain-kit   It's a little different as it's for "pop up" style terrain.  

I got mine yesterday and have already put together the Gazebo. I don't think the pictures did this justice at all. They are much nicer in person. Not too hard to put together either, just a little time consuming.

 

The Gazebo took uuh, about 85ish minutes to put together what with waiting on glue drying and finding bits.

I know I put on Crocodile Dundee when I started working on it and it was at the dinner party/proposal scene near the end when I finished up. I know I was going a little slow though since it was my first one and I was referencing the instructions.

 

As a weight test the Gazebo will barely hold one of the older 40k metal dreadnoughts. It will hold it, but the entire structure sags/compresses a bit so I pulled it back off before it could collapse.

I threw on a variety of human sized metal and bones figs and it supported them fine though with no real sag or compression of the pieces. I went up to a mix of 5 metal/bones figs on top.

 

I posted a small video of the finished Gazebo for a friend. If I remember, i'll move it to my flickr and tack it onto this post later today.

Oh, I know foamcore is stout stuff. I've actually built my current paint rack out of it.

There are a couple of internal corners on the Gazebo you could easily hide a foamcore piece in once it's folded out. I have some odd bits I'll fool around with tonight and see how well it actually works.

Hubby persuaded me to change to the color set again, I'm hoping that I can at least access the sepia PDF early.  I'm not going to have any time to assemble terrain in November, I'm usually swamped with baking and birthday/Christmas stuff. 

 

The beta pdfs are out! The beta pdfs are out! :D

 

So now that it's Not November, can the TinyBluberries assemble these, too? I'm curious which terrains are kid-friendly.

 

@MissMelons: Lemme know which terrains are husband-friendly!

 

Gluing two sheets together is a pain, but I found this link. Any papercrafters please advise before I glue and cut something I shouldn't!

Just to be clear, my TinyBluberries probably can't assemble anything (5 and 7 years old).  I have hopes for my SmallBluberries (age 12 & 16).  Guess I need to plan a trip to get printouts and supplies.  ^_^

Got my Sepia versions... AWESOME!  And several days of work.  :(

I plan to do the foam board backing for the base pieces.  Sturdier use and better protection of the just paper pieces.

I've already started as well.  First I put the Adventurers shop together, and then the Gazebo, just got finished an hour ago. 

 

A question for the more experienced paper-crafters out there.  Any suggestions on how to get the Adventurers Shop to lay flat?  Mine doesn't seem to want to.

      This is a storage box/ terrain house I'm building for my kid's High Rollers set (which was found today and played with all without the knowledge it was a gift).
      Will have removable roof maybe with shingles. Currently  just have walls and door. The extra cardboard from the door will disappear.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.
