Papermodeling Principles

Until I met g0rb on CMoN, I had never heard of papermodeling. Chris Venter, as he is known outside the hobby community, is a regular visitor to the Work In Progress forum on Cool Mini, where he astounds us with his amazing vehicles built from cut paper and other found materials. I have been very impressed by his attention to detail, creativity, and commitment to improvement. Chris is definitely an artist to watch as he continues to evolve and develop as a modeller and sculptor.  I asked him to share some reflections on his papermodelling.  As you’ll see, his approach to papercraft bears on other aspects of the miniature hobby, and on the creative process itself.

Hive City Ruins

I wanted to make a little board for taking photographs and testing terrain ideas.

This is going to be a ruined urban environment with large cheap plastered buildings.

I’ll add some more levels to give the forces of the Imperium more opportunities to look cool.

This will be a playable piece, although it has a definite orientation. It would serve well as a defensible position added off the side of a larger, more open map. Should be fun for narrative games!
