Hello, I'm Dennis. I recognize at east a couple of you from one of my favorite "professional" store sites, WWG. I've been into tabletop RPG since before D&D had the 'A' in front - and board wargames (of various flavors)since around the same time. I got into cardstocking because I wanted to build a castle - and after much looking at plastic kits (mostly because of my background in model railroading) - I figured papercraft was the way to go for its economy and 'kitbashyness". It took me almost two years to finally get around to making one. (Well, the castle itself is finished - just need all the nice finishing touches of interior furnishings.)
Welcome, Dennis! You've found a great community of like-minded collectors, crafters, and designers here, all held together by the loveably crazy squirmydad (crazy in the sense that he took us on, and won!). As for furnishing your castle--although we will have to see pics to give truly informed opinions -- I would heartily recommend the above bravesirkevin 's stuff (Dungeon Furniture Pack & Council Chamber in particular). I got into gaming papercraft through Fat Dragon Games, and they have several excellent sets as well, especially DRAGONSHIRE: City Interiors.
Hi All, Just saying hello as I'm newly arrived here. Although I've been building paper/card models for a while, I only learnt this forum existed when Christopher Roe announced he was moving his Genet Models forum here.
To be honest, I don't know how active I'll be here, but rest assured I'll be lurking around somewhere ...
I am Lauren from Iowa. Avid D&Der (3.5 with lots of homebrew). completely new to paper models, but after 'borrowing' a bunch to try my hand at it last night, decided to join the forum so I can 'borrow' more; maybe even get into designing some of my own down the line.
Our D&D group has been playing together for years (I joined about 10 years ago), and while we all have a joint compiled collection of miniatures, not many of them are female, so I'm going to get a decent paper collection going to represent my (only female in the group) characters. And probably 5x that amount for fun
Hello all I'm Kirshan, I'm an old school D&D DM/Player, who has been lost in the realms of Everquest and The Elder Scrolls for awhile. My son not so long ago found a few of my old D&D books and wanted to try it out. As a good father should I started building a D&D world he could relate too. Using the Elder Scrolls as a back drop(Which he knows a lot about). I decided if the first couple rounds worked well, I'd invest some cash and get some books ,mini's ,etc. After seeing how much it would cost to build up my D&D supplies to there former status. I started looking to the internet for alternatives. which lead me to Eddnic and to here. I'm finding wondrous amounts of knowledge here.
Hello. I've played wargames since 1969 and RPGs since 1976 I am a happy New owner of a cameo silhouette. I am looking for models of a Gryphon and a Kraken, not family guy or a computer card. Ive done paper models for about 10 years.
I was directed here by Tom from Fat Dragon Games; looks to be another nice place in the intarwebs!
I've recently gotten back into RPG stuff since an approximate 20+ year hiatus (got married, changed careers, bought and sold a house, got another house, relocated, etc...)
I initially got into fantasy cardstock terrain to display my ancient metal miniatures, and quickly fell in love with the hobby.
I'll be getting a D&D game together soon with a few coworkers (AD&D 2nd edition, the BEST version, IMHO), and have been collecting a bunch of OneMonk's paper minis; It will take me months to finish painting the 50+ new minis I got, so the cardstock route is the fastest way to get some minis ready for my upcoming game.

Hail and Well Met! I am the Dungeon Mistress, also known as Rivercat. I have been gaming now for about six years. I have been in several campaigns. Some from White Wolf, some from Wizards of the Coast - all were paper and pencil games. They were fun, but my creative side needed more...depth. So, when I remarried and found that my new husband used to game, I decided to try my hand at DMing. I went online (Craigslist) to find players and hit the jackpot! Now, I am running a D&D 3.5 (soon to morph into Pathfinder) with 6 players. A human wizard (my hubby), an Elven rogue, a Dwarf fighter, a human Cleric, a human Monk, and a Silver Dragon/Elf ranger/fighter (he's recovering from 3rd degree burns to his posterior from having shot himself with a flaming arrow! Don't ask). I have converted a number of my old characters into NPC's, my favorite is an Elven druid and her companion, a dire weasel. Remember, I mentioned my creative side? Well, I decided to make this a tabletop game replete with architecture: dungeons, taverns, houses, castles and the like. And props: dice games, furniture, Foam-cor weapons, and so on. But I have a question, the Official D&D Fold ups lists an Octagonal Tower (I've seen pics of it), but when I click on the link, it tells me that page doesn't exist. Does anyone know where I might it? I would appreciate any help you can give me, as I have all the rest of the pieces, I just need this one to complete things. Thank you! And thank you for the welcome.

I am the Lady, thy Dungeon Mistress! All will love and fear me! Muahahahahah!
Wow, after reading the whole 5 pages, I must say I'm impressed by the diversity and (I cannot be grateful enough about this) "maturity" of the board members !
My name's Sproutchu, but my friends call me Thierry, and my wife calls me whatever she likes. I'm french canadian, hence the names, so if you try your english tongues at pronouncing either, I'd like to hear the result.
I'm from Montreal (-ish; suburbs really, but it sounds less glamourous) and mostly speak french. I'm told my written english is usually quite understandable, and it's a good thing, because my spoken english has this really ungraceful french-canadian accent. Never got to pronounce the "r" correctly without sounding like a troll trying to speak ("eerrrrrrrrrrhh").
Always been a videogame and, a bit later, boardgame fan. Only recently did I hop on the miniature gaming train (less than a year ago) and it is quickly becoming an obsession. Glad the wife likes gaming too, so she accepts having me every other night sitting right beside her while we watch TV, cutting, scoring, gluing things.
We're preparing for some Malifaux fun, alongside a few more games (namely Puppet Wars, Zombicide, Krosmaster Arena, All things zombie Final Fade Out, and in the foreseeable future, Havoc and Brikwars). And a friend of mine, former D&D GM, is trying get up to date with the rules so we can start a campaign.
My wife's family is descended from the bastard son of the Von Trapps who was sent to the Canadian relatives to keep things quiet. Her great-grandfathers real name was Von Trapp, but was raised by the Sauves.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.
May 27, 2020 0:39:56 GMT -9
Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'
May 26, 2020 8:07:25 GMT -9
wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)
May 26, 2020 3:01:39 GMT -9
Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.
May 19, 2020 16:50:41 GMT -9
Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.
May 13, 2020 11:02:25 GMT -9
squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.
May 13, 2020 11:01:49 GMT -9
Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind
May 13, 2020 4:21:20 GMT -9
lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
