This may be the very first card stock model set inspired by a Bill Mauldin GI Joe and Willie cartoon. In the cartoon, the pair stand amidst a smoking pile of rubble. Joe says to Willie, “We sure liberated the hell outta this place.” Kartagrad: Dead City represents such a city devastated by combat. Kartagrad is an easy to build set of city ruins intended to be used in just about any setting from pulp through World War II and the modern era to near-future science fiction. The set consists of modular pieces for one, two, and three story ruins, because it’s assumed anything bigger was already targeted and collapsed to the smaller sized ruins. With Kartagrad a gamer can populate a tabletop in an afternoon or evening of quick builds. There aren’t any fancy props, just broken walls and shattered floors.
Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your Kartagrad: Dead City ruins, a new set waits your summons from hard drive and printer.
I agree, it looks promising but as always, one wants to see more ;D.
On a side note, is it me or is (almost) everyone doing ruins these days? Not that I'd mind, diversity is a good thing, but it makes me wonder... could papercraft be a mirror of social change and the subliminal fears of mankind? Or did I just get to bed too late?
as to why ruins: I did ruins to go with the Mayan set (the inside of the hovels and noble houses), so it was on my mind. Semi-modern because I've wanted to broaden out from sci-fi (there's a wizard's tower coming). Last, that GI Joe and Willie cartoon has been on my mind because I just picked up a copy of Mauldin's cartoons.
Yeah, it might be all the rage: Mad Max, Enemy at the Gates (if you haven't seen--do so), and the Resident Evil movies.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download
