Hi, I just got my official rulebook and have convinced my gaming group we are going to pulp city for a bit.

I have never been much of a tabletop wargame player ( i have painted 40k minis over the years, never played ) but was big into battletech.

So I need to start making terrain. I am planning on doing 12"x12" tiles to keep my city terrain sort of modular. I have almost completed 1 scratchbuilt styrene building, but it was pretty time intensive.

I have seen S-scale (1/64) and O-scale (1/48) thrown out as scales to use if you are buying building models.

I dont have a huge budget (but the ziterdes and sarissa look amazing), so any suggestions for goto models to get a good 3' x 3' table going?

Some of the Plasticville buildings are ideal scale wise (diner; frosty bar; maybe a few others). Get the kist requiring assembly rather than the identical but more expensive pre-built kits if doing so.

However, if you want to save cash, maybe free download papercraft buildings would be best. I have gathered a lot of links through my blog. Some may be old, but look around and you may find stuff of use.

General papercraft links/posts


Welcome to the Forums, BTW. :D

Thanks, those will get me turning out my city a lot quicker.

Have you (or anyone else) tried the worldworksgames stuff? it looks good and is very affordable. I have my eye on the vehicle pack so I can stock my streets with fun things to throw.

I would say go for O scale if you want to pick up buildings. I think it works out to 1:43. Thats the size most people on here seem to use for cars and such anyway.

But I can also highly recommend the Sarissa CityBlock range. Worth the money and will last a VERY long time.

Welcome to the city.
Hope you enjoy your stay!

I like the Plasticville stuff in O scale, works very well. I'm also a big fan of the Fat Dragon Capital City paper stuff, lots of good stuff there and a bit less pricey than World Works. It's a nice place to start.
