While working on the easy, low-detail build of the cannon, I found a way to flat-fold the cannon. No the poor thing is crushed

Official Post from Papierschnitzel: I wasn't sure if it would work, but I think I have succeeded in making not only a simple build of the cannon but also a fold flat version!Behold, a squashed cannon! :-)There are three parts, the gun carriage (lafette) and the barrel plus ending part. The carriage....

Very happy with the textured version of the cannon!

Official Post from Papierschnitzel: Once I got the geometry finalized I went on to texture this little model. I start by sketching a rough form directly onto the white model.Then comes the actual (digital) painting where I create all the textures I need. The result in this case is a very nice paper....

I have built several of the Samurai Village II models and I am very impressed with the richness of color and detail in each layer. The models are easy to build, and very sturdy when finished. I do not... need for mine to fold flat, but the option is excellent for those that do. I will definitely purchase more models in this line. See More

Here's a first try at the docks. Added some optional texturing spice to the plain wood version.

Official Post from Papierschnitzel: This is first texture sketch for the docks. The main surface is just the wood but I have optional layers so you can add either (or both) the poles top or the metal rings to tie your boats.For the easy build, which is basically a box, the poles would be painted on....

Long broken fences! Now that I have completed the 6" fences, I need to cover the 3" versions. I see a future where some nice farmland will get devastated by ogers, trolls and other deadly nuisances.

Official Post from Papierschnitzel: Quick update today on the fences. I have created the 6" versions of the fences. Like the ones before they come in regular, irregular and broken version.Here is a look at the broken one, which I am especially proud of. The broken ones take the longest to design :-)...

I got a request to make docks/piers, so here is a first sketch and ideas on how I would make them. If you are also interested in this, read the article and let me know what you think!

Official Post from Papierschnitzel: This is a 3D sketch for a docks/pier module. It's the advanced version with poles on the sides. The grey areas would be textured as metal and feature the rings where you could tie your boat to.A simpler version would look like this.Here you skip the poles and inst...

Call to action! I am working on fences and would like to hear your ideas about what I need to think about gaming wise. Are there any special needs I should consider during design?

Now is the time to speak or forever be silent!

The half height would be for the typical garden fence and the full h...
