The warm home of an upstanding citizen, with a 4×6″ grid ready for the chaos of battle.

Papercraft House, banner


I’ve spent the last week or so working on this design; a 4×6″ building battle map with 3D walls, and a removable roof. I’m happy to say, the result has exceeded my expectations!

With a little time spent cutting and gluing, you will have a colorful house standing right out of your battle map. The base fits a 4×6″ space on the average grid, and the interior (hidden under the 3D roof until someone steps inside) also bears a grid, ready for action.

I’m excited to explore this concept more in the coming weeks. Let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. This is amazing, and similar to something I wanted to make for an (tabletop) rpg I’m developing. Can you do something like this that’s like present-day modern? Maybe a bit futuristic, even?

A few weeks ago, Reynold the paladin and his comrades Walter and Victor found themselves in a sprawling grimdark cityscape with no friends and many enemies. Luckily, Reynold is a paladin of the Silver Lady and knew of a small temple in the area built long ago, even before the land was covered in cobble and haze.
