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.  

True. Although with how much I have done with cardstock over the years, I am set up to print for little cost.

 

I even have a Silhouette SD for automated cutting. I will most likely make cut files for this once I get the pdfs.

So, I'm in for the full set... just couldn't resist.

 

I think where this is most likely to shine is as "scatter terrain" for wargaming - throw out a couple of interesting pieces and roll with the fighting. As such, I really hope we unlock the hedges and stony field hexes, and I'd love to see a pop-up forest hex...

I would also like to see the hedges and field hexes. I thought about a forest hex, but the thing I really like about a lot of forest terrain is removable trees, so minis can stand without interference. I suppose there's something to be said for the verisimilitude of not being able to occupy the same space as a tree trunk, but the game is already abstract enough, yknow? I'd be worried that popup trees won't allow for enough flexibility/visibility of placement.

 

But Stonehaven may yet prove my concerns unfounded. I love this project!

I picture a pop-up forest hex as being a few scattered trees, maybe rows of trees, on the hex with enough room to place minis. ::D: A lot faster and easier to set up and break down than individual model trees on a cloud-shaped piece of green felt, and no chance of knocking trees over (onto minis! ::o:) while trying to move in and around the forest...

I am envisioning this printed on toned water color paper and being done in water colors.  could be awesome....... backing......

I'm quite looking forward to experimenting with colouring these with watercolours and coloured pencils... or just using them as is, I really like the sepia look.

I am thinking I might even let my daughter color some for use with her MLP collection.

Like I said, I really envision these as being best for "scatter" terrain - a couple of hexes and maybe a hill or three on a table serving as the battlrground.

 

But, I can't help wonder what it would be like to place, say, nine of these together in a 3x3 grid (offset a bit, of course, since they're hexes) and use that as the battleboard. They're 12" hexes so that should roughly correspond to the 3'x3' area for SoBaH, right? Or take 16 and make a 4x4 board for Warmahordes?

 

Someone with better spatial visualization skills and/or more experience in this should tell me if I'm onto something or just on something, before I fall too in love with the idea and doom myself to heartbreak...

      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.

      Picked up a bunch of the CAV terrain before Christmas t use for CAV and/or 28mm sci-fi gaming. Have been working my way through it and thought I'd post what I've finished so far.

      Just some more finished terrain from the Shadowfey set from Printable Scenery.

      All were printed on my Ender-3 with the exception of some of the branches, the stump, and the bones, which were done in resin on my Elegoo Mars.
