Do you ever wish you could have some nice looking buildings and terrain but don’t have the skill to scratchbuild nor the money for the fancy (but expensive) pre-made pieces? Paper terrain is the answer to your prayers. It can be printed on any printer, on any paper (heavier paper like 125lb is best), and won’t cost you any money to get.
There’s a lot of resources on the net. But, we’ve found some great ones to share with you.
- Our Combat Storm posts have great paper terrain and videos on how to assemble them. These work great with the Combat Storm rules engineered for playing with plastic army men.
GHQ has a bunch of paper terrain options including a tutorial. No videos are available and all links are to PDFs. These work best for WWII games such as Flames of War.
