Paper Models

For the Portable Fantasy Game, I built a half dozen or so building from Dave Graffam Modelsreduced to 65% of their original size. For home use, I have been wanting to do a few at full size for various games, but particularly for Song of Blades of Heroes on a 3x3 table.

I had some time to do that this weekend. Here are two buildings I've done so far, the Country House to the rear, and the Crescent Moon Tavern to the fron and right. I also finished off the Patrol Boat while waiting for glue to's been sitting half-built in the paper modeling box for a while. I had thought that I was going to add stone walls to the bases and give each of the houses a small enclosed area, but the Country House, in particular, was already on a base about 10" square, and a visually appealing fenced yard would have nearly doubled the base size (to 10x18 or so). I concluded that was probably more than I wanted for use on a 3x3 cloth. On top of that, there is the matter of the cubage for storage purposes. At least they are very light. I have some Fat Dragon models that are supposed to fold flat for storage on my to-do list.

I've got one more printed out, and the base flocking to do, and then it'll be time to put them in a game.

  1. They look pretty good and with the patina effect, realistic.
    It´s a good idea with the placement and flocking - I also got good experiences doing such - they don´t stand like objects on the battleground, but are more integrated.
    Fine job!!
