    FREE printable buildings and stuff

    Here's some links to FREE printable buildings for 40K and Fantasy (and other scales), signs and other interesting stuff we've found over the years.

    PM me any dead links and I'll strike them off.

    IMPORTANT - The works must be FREE and intended as such by their creators. (i.e., don't be sending a link for an illegally scanned torrent of printable Mordheim buildings.) No 40K vehicle plans, either.

    Spoilers are used where multiple links are required.

    A special thanks, to all those people who have spent many hours creating these for the rest of us to use. I'll try to add your names to the list but if you spot anything uncredited belonging to you, let me know. Cheers

    Enjoy.

    40K Buildings

    Buildings scaled specifically for 'Dungeons & Dragons' Miniatures so could be pretty useful - http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/fpm/archive -

    Vehicles
    I built a Warhound Titan using one of the sets of plans found online and the length of time it took I'd have been just as well buying a Forgeworld one! (And it would have looked better.)

    We don't want anyone getting into trouble and we definitely don't want to lose this place we all love so if you want to make any PaperHammer vehicles you'll have to practice your Google-Fu and find them yourself.

    If you find any plans which have no copyright/IP issues that's fine BUT they MUST BE ORIGINAL DESIGNS created and distributed for free by the original creator.

    Miscellaneous
    (Includes companies without freebies and dedicated papercraft sites)

    An absolutely huge papercraft resource. Check out the Architecture section for buildings but have a look at the rest too - http://tektonten.blogspot.co.uk/

    Another great site dedicated to various printable resources including Fantasy, Modern, and Sci-Fi buildings, accessories and vehicles (created by TommyGun) - http://www.modelpaperworld.com/en/

    I was sure I recalled WorldWorksGames offering some free stuff but it's only GSD and STUDIO files I can find now. If you spot anything free that's useful for us there, let me know - http://www.worldworksgames.com/store/index.php

    My problem, exactly. I've either completely lost the links on old machines or they point to 404 errors.

    EDIT - I should point out this thread only happened because @wookieplus added photos of a veritable city of card buildings to his army pics thread. Have a look. If it doesn't inspire you to get your paint brush into gear, I don't know what will!

    I found a Hobby Craft in Hull today, picked up a pack of A4 foam sheets for £5. All different colours, but once they've been cut up, glued together, PVAd and sand covered, sprayed and painted, they'll be good durable terrain pieces!

    Thanks for this Mis. I'll shove some pics on here when I've done some.

    Thought you'd like a running commentary of how I've got on. I've printed off a load of the first link, and a tower from the second link. I've got 50 sheets of foam to play with so thought I'd do a few bits! This would be a great way of doing it for a club: it's so cheap!

    Right, this is what I've got:

    Some "Fab Foam" from Hobby Craft (£4.99), a packet of 50 sheets, a pile of printouts from the links above, some masking tape, a hobby knife, I've also used some PVA and a pair of scissors.

    I tapped the plans to the foam this time, just for quickness sake, cut the internal lines (windows) with the knife, and the large external ones with the scissors (I find it easier to cut straight with scissors):


    Then glued the relevant bits on. The extra detail bits (the plan only has one of each) I just drew round on some excess and made more of them:


    Then I trimmed the corner off the completed wall, and made a slight deviation to the plan, in that I'm going to add a box section into the corner between the two walls, just for strength:





    And that's as far as I got in half an hour before bed!

    Things I might do differently next time:
    The foam sheets I'm using are really flimsy, and won't hold a model at all like they are. I'm hoping that once they're put together, the right angled edges will stiffen it all up a bit, and a layer of watered down PVA to seal the foam before painting will help, as well as extra PVA and sand on the horizontal parts. If not, I'll use watered down PVA to paste the paper onto the foam next time which should help, a bit like papier mâché. Failing that, I'll buy some wooden keebab squeurs and use them to reinforce it all.

    This is so easy! I can't believe I didn't think of it myself! The thing is, "back in the day" all this kind of stuff would have been in WD........

    I'm sure I've got some plans from WD on one of my hard drives. I'm just not sure, if I can post images of or links to them here or not? (What with it being GW's IP and them always saying that the images were 'for personal use only'.)

    That's the build finished:

    I cut a right angled base for it and glued the two walls together with the box section between them. I also prepped the floors, I just used two corners from another sheet, cut them wiggley, then put an edge on them to give the glue something to purchase on:



    Then I put the floors in. The floors were properly floppy, and really needed strengthening. The bits I glued yesterday, are really strong and stiff now it's dried, so i put a little "beam" under each floor, just to give a right angle join and a glue line to stiffen them up:





    I'm just waiting for all the glue to dry before I crack on with a coat of PVA all over, a little sand and some paint. Speaking of paint, I was looking for some grey spray today to make painting quicker, and I came across some "stone effect textured spray cans" by Plasticoat. £7.99 a tin, so I thought I'd give it a go. It could make painting these a lot quicker.

    Hopefully this is proving useful for people wanting to make these kits.

    I really wish I`d seen this 4-5 years ago when my mates and I bought the £150 odd Imperial city. We'd have had twice as much scenary for a fraction of the cost.

    The only real problem I can see is a small breeze scattering these all across the table. Whacking it on some hardboard would probably fix that though. You could then take all those old sprues and cut them into little bits to make rubble piles (or cheat and use a meat grinder!) to weigh them down more.

    @payneib - visit Vapnartak this year, you'll come away with loads of ideas for scenery, if not the scenery itself! Non-GW wargame scenery is generally cheaper - for instance, the hedges, fences, bunkers and trees in the pics I posted recently (see signature for link) are from wargames and modelling suppliers not GW, and are on the whole very good quality. I have a whole bunch of resin 'sci fi' barricades, gun emplacements etc which werent pictured which were cheaper than the Aegis lines.

    To be honest I got both books and they were both a waste of money, GW doesn't go into much detail in fact got better ideas and plans from their WD mag then from these books.

    Right, that's the first one done (aside some touching up: I left a small amount of masking tape on some of the smaller bits that has peeled off under the paint). I am properly chuffed with it! I've not load tested it yet but it feels quite strong. As long as no one try's to stand an old school metal dreadnought on it, that'll be fine! Lol I might use some matte varnish spray to protect the paint. It comes out like little flecks of silly string, takes about 10 hours to dry (so much for "touch dry in 15 minutes" on the side of the can) and feels like rubber once it's dried:








    [ QUOTE="CaptainBudget;697331"]The only real problem I can see is a small breeze scattering these all across the table.[/QUOTE]

    I thought this might be a problem, but with a couple of coats of Stone Plastikote on it, I think it actually weighs more than the plastic ones!

    EDIT: Is anyone else having trouble with the [img*] and [quote*] tags? I can't seem to get this to put my photos in my post, and CBs quote into a quote box without it going wrong.

    Coming on really nicely - just needs some window ledge detailing and basing and it will look great!
