PostSubject: Who produces already printed cardstock terrain?   Sat 3 Jan 2009 - 9:08

I was wondering if anyone knew of a company that produces ready made cardstock terrain. I am referring to the kind of terrain you find in GW's starter box sets, like the destroyed ruins that came with Mordheim, but also were in 40k second edition and Warhammer 4th and 5th edition (GW produced several cardstock boxed sets also).

I already know about World Works Games (available here- highly recommended viewing btw) but the problem with ordering from them is that I have to print the material out first. Several companies offer similar download and print terrain, but I have found none that simply produce ready made cardstock terrain in which only assembly is required. I am seeking to avoid the whole printing process, as I simply don't have the additional time to put into the printing of the products.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Eric

Very few if anyone else. I noticed a few things on one of those RPG sites that lets you download paper terrain for a fee (not WWG) one of the companies sells some sci fi type stuff that comes preprinted.

Other than that I have never found one.

If you need scans of the Mordheim buildings as between a few of us we have them all scanned (Mordheim box set and blood on the streets).

Thanks for the offer, but someone else put the scans for mordheim up previously and I snatched them right up already.

I am considering approaching one of the companies, such as world works games, and seeing if they will offer printing services in the future. I am a little surprised that they don't already. It seems like many people are turned off to paper terrain because of the additional work and the lack of a certain "staying power." But if a company like WWG would print and then ship the materials to you rather then allow you to download the products, it may be more successful. I suppose it would increase their costs too, but then, they can increase their a quite low prices to cover the additional work.

Perhaps I am simply asking to much. I have always thought GW's cardstock terrain was fine, especially for random, in store, or one off gaming, and I am surprised no one else produces similar terrain.

Thanks for the response
Eric

PS- if someone who makes printable terrain is reading this, feel free to steal my idea (assuming its mine to have stolen). Just shoot me a PM so I can buy terrain from you later.

I've got a bunch of buildings from D&D I got off their website years ago. Roads, Masoleum, Tavern, Chruch, stuff like that. They're all in PDF format. Can I upload those somehow?

@joker....wwg is already talking about this and are working with another company about trying this out.

I am a regular on WWG and have been watching or waiting for them to do something on this matter.


@Ethlorien...PM me and I can provide you with a place to upload them to.

Didn't Steve Jackson Games do some packets of card terrain for a while? I think within the last few years, as my roommates used to have a whole load of em.

Thanks for the info. I'll keep my eye on WWG. I hope there's some good stuff for Mordheim!

You'd still have to print them, but nonetheless these...

easy option would be to print out the pdf's and stick them to balsa wood, means quick cutting out, and the rough edges can be painted black, sorted and very little work.

Hey, thanks a lot for these cianty. Similar to a few I have on my computer, but the more the merrier. Someday my city of Mordheim will encompass the entire basement!

Thanks a lot,

Although I'm not very fond of paper buildings, I downloaded all these.

They are great for inspiration.

Thanks for posting the link cianty.

Best wishes.
