Paper Serenity Crew on a new Popoup Staircase design I'm working on. Again with the heavy lifting (textures) done by other designers...

See http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/thread/6959/cutfile-serenity-crew-figures-grendelsmother64 for links and details.

And yes, +Phil Vecchione , they all store flat. :-)

Hey I made something new-ish!

As you know I've build some vehicles for an Atomic Highway game I'm playing in. Of course the first session was cool, and there were photos.

Part of the encounter mad me a little sad, as we were harassed by two raiders on motorcycles. But I hadn't made any motorcycles.

So I decided to fix that this week - then I found there were no models that were easy to construct and would allow for a 28mm miniature to "ride" it. To I started to design one at my favorite paper-terrain/mini community cardboard-warriors. Interested in the details/models?Check here:  http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/thread/6954/kitbash-prototyping-ridable-paper-motorcycle

I have a bit of a catalyst effect on projects - and before long I had the help of a very prolific designer: Tinkering Tom.

They are free to download, print, and I made cutfiles...

I think they turned out pretty cool, myself.

Hey +Christopher Sniezak - I noticed that you still do the online-interview thing on the Down With DnD podcast. Perhaps there are some interesting stories or tips from some of you fans that would be great to get on the air.

For example, you could do a segment (or sub-segment) on terrain for D&D games... :-) 

[Yes, I did suggest this back in the Patreon days...]

What do the rest of you (us) think? Do you have something you think Chris (and the crew) might think is cool to share with their wider audience?

If you like Planescape, especially the Infinite Staircase, I've got two more posts up of my gaming terrain/quest log...

Listening to Phil talk about Minecraft as his way to "check-out" I was inspired to describe my hobby thusly:

"Papercraft is my Minecraft."

Now you know how it's possible to do this stuff. :-) I just gave up video games and Minecraft.

Here's a shot of something I'm working on for an upcoming contest...

That makes sense to me. If I check out and just watch TV, I then feel guilty like I was not doing anything useful. Minecraft allows me to feel productive, and not really be doing anything useful.

This piece looks pretty cool. Can't wait to see the final product.

There is now a kitbash of these models scaled for 28mm gaming miniatures that allows the use of plastic miniatures as riders. See http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/thread/6954/kitbash-prototyping-ridable-paper-motorcycle
If you like militaria, has good eyesight and patience, this paper model of a WW2`s Motorcycle BMW R-75, in 1/100 scale and in several configurations, is perfect for you. And almost no takes up space, because if you do not know, the 1/100 scale is almost 30% smaller than a Hot Wheels miniature, ...

A player at our FLGS (Games of Berkeley) got excited by Mad Max Fury road and volunteered to run short campaign of Atomic Highway for us during the send-shift hiatus for the next D&D 5e encounters in the fall. I got inspired as well an created some paper props for him - which he used in our first session last night...

Another session, another papercraft terrain live-play post. I must say, I avoided all the inter-planar stuff when I first played AD&D - too weird for my teenage brain, I guess. But I'm really enjoying emphasizing the strangeness of the infinite staircase, planes, and now Sigil.  Hope you like my interpretation of the City of Doors.

For those of you that find my paper terrain intimidating, there are some free models out there of props - much less overwhelming. Here's a new bunch by Eddnic at http://minipapermodels.blogspot.com ...

I made some cutfiles and posted some pictures here:
http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/post/68714/thread

I especially like the solar system model...

Most papercrafters, when working at this level of detail, use exacto knives for cutting complex shapes (I don't think those are "handed", but do take a little bit of work to learn to use safely. :-D) Also, there are crafting machines that cut this stuff out for you (the Silhouette line) and lots of folks in the community create and share the patterns [we call them cutfiles] - the links in this post lead to the cutfiles I shared for these models.

I keep getting the shoutouts on the show, so I guess you guys like me posting this here...

The Planescape part of our adventure has started in earnest - and the players start at The Temple of Selûne: We're not in Punjar anymore! https://the-forsite-irregulars.obsidianportal.com/adventure-log/the-temple-of-sel-ne

I built a tourist model of Gaudi's Parc Guell in Barcelona, Spain. I did 3x size, added more playspace and textures, and went totally gonzo on this model. Check out more in this thread: http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/architectural-models/17699-parc-gueell.html
