3D paper terrain for Space Crusade
Posted by Vamper –
first of, let me say its 5am, so i apologies in advance if i dont make sense or write in Engrlish.
Here's a photo of something I've been working on:
So far I've design the meshes for the doors and some of the walls and this shows the results of the test builds. Its gunna look better once it has textures, which I've also been working on. I'll update soon with more photos, hopefully textured builds.
I've been thinking about the maps, and i want to make the walls thick (at least 1/4") to make them feel "real". i made a bit of 3d paper terrain before for star wars miniatures, and the paper thin walls looked cheap and often would warp. This is of Hoth, with the power generators in the background and the building representing Echo base.
Getting back to space crusade, 1 major problem with using games workshop miniatures is that the mini almost always is larger than its base, meaning that if a character is standing right next to a wall, the protruding weapons and other details force the base to not sit neatly in its square, especially with multiple adjacent units.
The solution, move the walls into the middle of the next square, giving the mini 1/4" to 1/2" of breathing room. the down side is that this increases the board size by a few inches and stretches out the map as all he walls are not effectively 1" thick.
