Flames of War finished terrain piece
I cut this elevation few weekends ago. My friend from university sent me his survey drawing of this beautiful tenement-house in Poland. I thought it may be a nice element for the wargame table or diorama. I am going to make damaged version of this building in the near future. It will be in scale 1:100 to fit the Flames of War figures.
Here you have few photos of my weekend project. I prepared my drawings a while ago, and decided to cut it now. It is my new master for resin casting. Its made of cardboard, bricks and some war damage is engraved on surface. I will patch few places with putty, add more cracks and texture to plaster, add some details like broken glass, timber joists and a little plush teddy bear on the floor 🙂 Then I will sand it in some places, prime it and its ready for silicone mould. Anybody wants one?
Its all laser cut from 1.5mm and 0.5mm cardboard. Bricks are made in two passes : first is engraving for about 0.4mm deep, then mortar line is cut for another 0.4mm. Floors are cut from one 1.5mm cardboard (the shape with joists) than on top of it is a 0.5mm paper layer with timber boards. Bottom side is again timber boards and another layer with peeling plaster ceiling.
I made another two elevations for city battles for Flames of War strategy game. Its based on survey drawings made by students of architecture so its quite accurate. I always wanted to create very detailed table showing destroyed city. its going to be very labour intensive, so I would like to start with one street at the moment. Those buildings will be the part of historical city centre.
