Tonight I think I'll dig up my files for the Ruined Cottage, shrink it to 15mm, and choose textures appropriate for WWII ruins. I haven't released anything specifically for 15mm scale, so this will be an experiment. I have a hunch that there will be lots of folks interested in them, but I won't know unless I try!
I managed to fit the 15mm WWII version of the Ruined Cottage on a single sheet. I pushed it to 10.5" tall but that's actually enough clearance for both A4 and US letter-sized sheets.
I took out the stairs and some of the extra parts (ladder, bridge), but I figured these would be really fiddly at that scale anyway. I'm going to try the "slot and hide" method for attaching perpendicular planes -- which means that the tabs should all be hidden, and the whole piece should be pretty dern sturdy. That's the same method I used for attaching the wings on my new Solid State aircraft models, and it seems to be a good system.
The edges on this model seem pretty jagged. I don't think I'd want to spend that much time with my X-Acto. I'll probably simplify the edges a bit before I try printing this out and doing a test build.

We've switched over to 15mm for warhammer fantasy battle (we play it because we've always played it!) There's a big gap in the paper market for warmachines like bolt throwers, stone throwers, skull throwers etc...... I can see those working alongside metal/plastic minis too. Any plans? Your style would be perfect. Obviously they'd be better in 30mm then 15mm players can easily shrink them.

Vermin King: I wouldn't hold my breath. He used to be very active on a French forum, so I asked him if he was going to be back there. no response yet

squirmydad: Crap. I hope he's able to recover and republish his work.

Vermin King: I sent Mauther an email. My guess is that it will be inaccessible while he is migrating things over to Blogger

wyvern: Today though, the Papermau blog is no longer accessible unless you have an invitation (and of course you can't get one unless you visit the blog, Catch 22). Anyone got any better news about it?

wyvern: I know Papermau's blog has been having problems because of virus infections lately - it's fired-up my antivirus system every time I've visited there for some weeks, though he did write and say the problem was resolved a while back (it wasn't).

Vermin King: I suppose it could have been worse. She could boost someone up in a positive uplifting supportive manner...

Vermin King: Okay ... double negatives are bad, but how about triple saying the same thing. I just heard someone on TV saying, 'I found we really boosted each other up in an uplifting supportive manner'. And that was probably meaningful to her. duh

Vermin King: Back in my younger days, I tried to get 'Trick or Drink' running. We would go door to door in costume with our Halloween-themed rocks glasses in hand.

shep: On the other hand, Halloween is not that big for kids, here in Germany, anyways. It's more an excuse for teens and young adults to dress up and have a party... and for the latter ones to get drunk beyond speaking their native tongue...

shep: "A ninja, a mage, a knight, and a fish enter a tavern..." Wait this is no joke??!? Great costumes! The kids in my neighborhood were, as always, either too shy or too lazy to climb up into the third floor (40 steps, man, 40 steps!)...
