Before you even start reading, I should probably clarify that in northern Ontario a ‘shag’ is a pre-wedding social event, like a ‘buck and doe’, or a ‘social’.
I worked a close tonight, so I got home with a bit of time, but not enough to have anyone over for games. My wife was out at a friend’s shag, so I was home with H (who was well asleep by the time I got home from work). Seemed like a good night to try out some papercraft terrain I downloaded recently. I’m really pretty pleased with how it turned out… it doesn’t really jive 100% with 40k, but its science fictiony and the right scale, and most of all the price was right. The download was a free sample on rpgnow.com and I managed to get somebody to print it out at work for me, so total cost was a few sheets of cardstock.
Admittedly there are bits of weirdness going on. I should have inked some interior surfaces, and some bits are a little crooked looking, but I also didn’t really read through the instructions and used old white glue I found in a drawer. Once its dried I may be able to end and twist some crooked parts, and I’ll see what I can accomplish with some aftermarket sharpie edges. I have high hopes.
Mostly, though, I’m intrigued by the paper terrain, and interested in seeing what else this particular designer has available for sale. Just in case there’s something that *does* look 40k-ish at a decent price. I’ve gotta say, the free sample is simple, but it did its job… I’m intrigued.
