So, looking at the new shanty towns terrain pieces out there has me looking at my old modest attempts again. Mine could definitely use some dressing up but in looking through them, I came across two that never made it onto the blog and they are two of my favorites. As usual they follow my quick and dirty, gaming terrain formula. They have removable roofs but the insides are not detailed. I want them to look good on the outside and work on the inside.
With the ground floor being so deep, I thought it might be useful to be able to get figures into the back section away from the windows or to be able to secret them inside to be revailed when encountered. To accomplish this I made the second floor front and sides attacked to their own floor that was removable from the back half of the building. I suppose I could have made the second story floor and the roof of the front section a single piece, but then this would mean moving any troopers using the front roof as an elevated position.
The window to the right of the structure was left with the bottom layer of paper from the corrugated cardboard still attached. This I wrinkled and will paint as a curtain. The edges of the cardboard where the wall pieces meet was smoothed over by simply folding some plain white paper over the edges and glue-sticking it down. I could use masking tape, but paper is cheaper and easier to find around my place. As you can see by the picture below it's not so pretty on the inside, but I'll be able to move miniatures around freely. There is no back door to this place but I'm not sure it needs one.
