    What do you mean by?
    Turned out pretty well for a couple of hours
    Do you mean it only stayed together for that long or what?

    Also is that somthing you can just buy and make? if so... SCORE!!

    Hehe, no, I meant it only took a couple of hours to build. The template is from here:

    The Official WorldWorks Games Store!, Exceeding Your Expectations One Game at a Time

    It seems pretty sturdy. I'd imagine it will last just as long as any other terrain if you treat it with the same respect. I think they get a bad rap because people think 'oh it's just cheap paper' and handle it roughly. If you handle it like you would your hand converted hand painted models, I'd bet it'll last just as long.

    The reason for the widespread acceptance of this sentiment is that it's exactly correct.

    If you handle it like you would your hand converted hand painted models, I'd bet it'll last just as long
    Or if you used sturdier materials, people wouldn't have to handle your terrain with kid gloves -

    Clear Coat the printed pages and then glue them to card/balsa/foam/core with pva glue.
    Cut out and assemble such that all of the pre-printed surface detail can be admired.
    Follow-up with a base and a bit of hand-painting at the seams. Done.

    These, you can logically handle as though converted, hand-painted models.
    Since, after a couple hours work, that's exactly what they'll be . . .
    Yes, paper has its use, but not as a durable structural material.

    /shrug, time will tell! The problem with building onto foamcore or styrene or whatever is it runs counter to one of the original purposes of giving this a try, time It certainly isn't suitable for say, leaving out on the table in a store without some reinforcement, but my initial impression handling it is that it's quite good for the level of use seen in my home collection. The idea was to have a nice looking at-home setup without laying out 300-500 dollars for prefabs or three months of my hobby time for scratch building. I'd just personally rather spend that time painting minis. $50 in supplies and a few weekends seemed like a good compromise

    Looks good.
    I made some small builds using the Wizards of the Coast buildings, glued to foamboard, strong enough to survive gaming.

    Visually the building look good, but i feel they lack the texture of scratch built buildings. I like the buildings to have some sort of texture to them. I used to have a few of these buildings in the past such as the grave yard pieces that are in the link bugbait_nz posted and they were durable depending on what you used to make them out of.
