I was surfing through 'YOU TUBE' the other day and I came across this:
It's a video by a character called 'DMScotty' (http://dmscraft.proboards.com/) OK I know it's D&D but the terrain techniques can be adapted.
This got me to thinking and I thought that interior action has always been difficult as the usual, papercraft, building interiors tend to be too cramped for figures once they are based. So came this project, Build a cardboard interior tile for your buildings and move the action there when appropriate. This also helps out with Ed T.'s (the THW guy) interior rules.
The plan: The experiment was set on my backwoods cabin. I increased the dimensions by 1/3rd for the tile and away I went. (I had a write error on my camera and didn't realise 'til now so the photo tutorial is a bit bare.)
|Tools Required, minus hot glue gun and cardboard.|
2. Cut out pattern.
|These will be the walls.|
|The beauty of cardboard cutting with scissors|
|The external and internal views.|
6. Whilst it was drying I knocked up some doors, a bed and a stove.
7. Check it out, prior to painting.
The Viscountess hid my large cutting mat behind a radiator (something to do with making the place look untidy ?) and it warped. Unknown to her it's been under her side of the mattress over Christmas and its come out a bit better (don't tell her or the lads'll be fatherless. ;-).
I scraped it using an old blade an here's the result!
|Accrued crap sticking to my cutting board.|
Well that's all for now. I've got to get some more clear plastic backing before I paint and I think I'll pop out and get some brown Acrylic to finish this off.
Thanks for popping by and stay dry out there.
