    Sounds cool. I have made the resin models and the cost gets high fast.

    I would love to do that! me and a buddy are making some imperial star destroyer fleets to battle it out. Anyone know however we can get some rules for that kind of thing? I bet alot of guys on here would prob be interested in a space table top game.

    Now, paper TERRAIN ... that's where you can save lots of money and still put on an awesome game. Can I recommend WorldWorks Games?

    If it's tasteful, then yes. I've seen some of the titans and tanks running around here and they look awesome. The level of detail that can be put into a paper model really sells it. For more organic things such as infantry and giant beasts I think plastic/lead looks nicer still.

    I would definitely play wargames with paper miniatures when resources are scarce.

    I love the idea of using Paper Models for table top gaming, the problem is some hardcore groups wont allow you to bring paper units into their "pure" game.

    Not to step on anyone's toes here but the "purists" have a lack of an imagination. :rolleyes:

    I would definately play a game similar to warhammer and the sort. I would even play a game with paper miniatures such as chess :p Ive always considered making an anime themed papercraft chess set, just never got around to it :(

    I use paper models of Warhammer 40k vehicles. And I never was asked out of a tournament - they're just so realistic :)

    The floor was made from plastic strips used to packing boxes for transport - they have this nice texture, the only other nonpaper parts are pieces of straws used for exhaust pipes, droplets of white glue (twice) for rivets and a wooden stick for the front wheels axle.

    That model is fantastic. When you showed pics of the rivets in the other thread, I was hoping to see more of the model. Incredible! :)

    Playing With Paper

    I tried to post a reply but it seems to have disappeared!

    If I made a Chess set of paper, I'd play with it. Gently.

    Knowing me, I'd probably start making another set right away - just in case a piece got broken.

    I've used paper models for Tabletop wargaming. I Built a Dreath Star Trench Run out of paper and card for a special event at my games club, and have made buildings and other scenics for 40K WHF, and 'The Game With No Name' (it's a western) battles.
    But nothing to the awesomeness of that gunwagon! Kudos and props to you sir!

    It's so much cheaper than buying the shop sold stuff!, and just as much fun to put together, and more satisfying to look at when it's finished.

    And you can go nuts if your with the right group of people, start using Lighter Fluid s a Flame thrower and burn up the whole battlefield. The Horror, the horror!.................or not. :)

    I (recently) came to paper modeling to create replacements for a man o' war incomplete fleet. I started this WE to build War 40K models so I would say that is a resounding yes.
    Not just from a price perspective, honestly the time passed to build a nice paper model is probably worth the price of the plastic, I like it because of the satisfaction I have in the building and the idea that I can design some (although my designs are really simple for now)
