A few days back I started work on some card building designs. First basic test turned out like so.
Followed by a slightly cleaned up set of parts on a simpler model.
This weekend my partner in game design crime and I started working on some more detailed textures. The results, next to the first run.
We're obviously still figuring out what exact style we're trying to get to, but I'm liking where it's headed. The problem honestly is the medium. I want to make something different, and I love classic video game style pixel art. That's actually the focus of our main board game project. But when it comes to 3d, too "classic" is just boring, and too detailed is going to just look like crappy low resolution fantasy. Right now we're trying to strike a balance that'll look unique, thematic, and good on the table.
I hope you all enjoy, and if you have any suggestions on what we can do to improve on our goal I'd much appreciate it.

So next round of texture tests. Stayed with the small shack design since it's easy to texture and put together, but big enough to see how the textures look when repeated. Shown here are both horizontal and vertical wooden walls, along with large wooden shingles.
Then we have the same basic setup but with a mockup for stone corner braces. I'll need to redo the placement so they wrap around the corners more realistically, but I think the colors work.
Lighting through the house I'm at stinks, but I wanted to update. Tonight I'll have access to better lighting. Should have a new stucco texture mockup as well as peaked roof builds.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
