Warmaster Terrain

I was recently pointed towards a set of papercraft Warmaster Buildings that I'd neverseen on another forum.

And now, after about 6 hours of work, I've got a villiage!

These things are really easy to make, and surprisingly detailed. I was also able to find roads from Toschach Miniatures for a fiver; they also sell them in 6mm and 15mm scale.

I particularly like the church, which has a steeple at a jaunty angle in this photo:

But that's because the steeple is removable, and fits a 20mm x 20mm base, and may (I've not checked yet) fit a 25mm round or square):

I need to find a method to either connect or weight the roads, which tend to get knocked about in-game, as I found last night, but overall I'm satisfied given the time and money spent: $13 for the cardstock, $5 for the road file, plus ink. And I've got most of a table's worth of terrain out of it.

Very nice. Always wondered of paper terrain was worth it. Now I see it can be.

Thanks , though I'd add a couple caveats to that:

First, get the file. I wouldn't trust preprinted paper terrain, due to durability questions. It also makes it more valuable if you can duplicate it freely. I'll never need 6mm roads again, assuming I can get the weighting issues sorted. I do really like some of the stuff at paperterrain.com, but it's preprinted, so it's a no-go for me.

Second, make sure the price is appropriate for what you're getting. The buildings were free, which is rarely too much. I got 16 total pages of dirt, paved, and cobblestone roads, plus sidewalks and transitions. Each page therefore cost me about $.32 for as many as I want. Paperterrain is asking $10 for the "European Farmhouse Complex", which appears to be approximately four (including the ruined versions) of the large buildings I used, or maybe as much as four sheets of card. Not worth it for what you get. If I got the file I'd seriously consider some of the more generic stuff, but for one? No.

Where did you get the buildings from? I might use them at Adepticon.

Alternatively, I'd be happy to pitch in a few hours if you told me how many you needed.

One church, two sets of houses.

Two sets as in two sheets (four houses), or two sets as in twice what I brought last Thursday?
