However, with a limited budget Gamecraft is not an option for me. Across the Atlantic shipping is terribly expensive, and his price per item adds up if you need loads. So I've asked a friend with a lasercutter to see what he can come up with. Not that that is perse cheaper, but support your local tradesmen if possible and buying in bulk sure won't hurt either.
So, this one is for Patrick, first the inspiration pieces:
What I want is in 2 parts. 1. Appartment complexes and 2. Factories. Both NOT as ruins!
Factories: For example, this model (I'm assuming it is a Gamecraft one but I'm not sure on that)
Appartment complexes/rows of houses.
You have either a square of a house, 4x 4cm's, or variants thereof, working in 2cm increments using the same template copied row after row. 4x4 base template would be the same 2cm width space with windows repated twice. A 4x4 base would have 2 blind walls and 2 walls with windows and a cental door. Gleuing them side by side would create rows of apartment blocks. A 2x2 base with 2 pieces with single windows and a door and 2 blind ones could be used to connect appartment blocks or as a stairwell, being a connector piece.
Each cut house, be it 2x4 or 4x4 would be 5 pieces, 2 blind walls, 2 window walls and 1 roof. Only the walls need dovetails (you know, the connectors) on the side, the top does not.
It depends on the size of the sheet of cardboard how many of these you can cram into it.
If possible, the
If the size of cardboard is different let me know so I can recalculate.
