Worn and torn version, from many years exposure to the elements. Partially charred coach from fire in the stables. Damage adds variety (I am talking about texture versions, not change in the physical model).
Damaged coach with snow on it. Frostgrave scenery...
Hi! I'm Harry, and I am a hobby addict. I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Pacific Theater (oddly in both 28mm infantry and 3mm aircraft.)

Took some time tonight to try to do these correctly, meaning that I wanted each of the models formatted the same way. Should I figure out layered pdf's, They would then line up so that potentially you could select which version of coach you wish to build. If I do the texture variations on these templates, potentially they could also be included in one pdf. If I understand things correctly.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

Even though these trunks are a bit large, they were printed and scored, so I went ahead and built them.
While working on that, I was also thinking a rectangular trunk or barrels would be appropriate on the back of a coach. These are from Sirius Artworks, and what is bad is that I actually enlarged these by 7% (to fill the space on a page without reformatting entirely). I'm not very happy with the odd barrel-like shapes of any of the paper barrels that I've seen. If you haven't noticed, I try to achieve things to look good and reasonably easy to build. Sometimes while working on something that is a pain in the neck like these, I can come up with a decent compromise between appearance and ease of build.
Here's where I'm at on building this version, but I'm thinking the best solution will be hoops, but haven't started to develop that yet. Has anyone seen barrels done that way, with the typical bulging sides?
EDIT -- I think three hoops that connect to lids and slightly enlarged circles that will be the barrel hoops. I should do a quick sketch to better explain. But if you think 'Barrel of Monkeys', that gives a good idea. Although not as elongated as the barrel in the game
Okay, that one is too fiddly to shrink and still be buildable.
But I it gives me ideas
Not really. I enlarged the lid and bottom (almost enough) and lost the barrel rims. I reduced it to make several sizes and built the smallest one.
I think reducing to 80% of this size will still be very buildable and be a proper general size. I didn't finish the little one from yesterday, but have it here to show how small it is. This went together really well. I printed it at 9:03, built it, talked to my mom on the phone, took pictures, and cropped them by 9:30.
And spent some time on the porch with one of the feral cats. So, this was a pretty quick build with decent results IMO
I also think I can arrange that other one to be much more buildable
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)
