The Residences at New Kyoto
« on: 05 February 2024, 11:10:54 »
These are the first of some urban templates I'm making. I will be debuting them at our FLGS tonight, and they will also be appearing at ScrumCon coming up in March.

I used chipboard for the bases and walls. Buildings are all 3D printed.

That's fantastic! Will you share later a photo with a 'Mech in for scale? :)

Here's a pic from last week's game to show the scale.

Nice... too bad the roads are just a little too narrow for the hex bases... it looks like the 'mechs would fit just fine.

The houses and building are great, nice models and paint work.

I can't get over the impression that they are tad too small. Especially when looking at the photo with Exterminator next to a couple of houses. Average height of a single story where I live is about 2.5 meters, and I am basing my calculation on that.

So the nearest two-story house should be around 7.5-7.9 meters tall (larger digit include 0.2m for second story floor and ceiling height). And based on that, Exterminator seems to be tall 14m-15m. The impression I get is that the house comes to about a bit taller then half the height of the Exterminator. In my mind the it should be about as tall somewhere between middle of the torso and armpits.

But this is all based on the photo, maybe the scale is more close in real life, due to photo angles and perspective.

I've seen those sets a few times and considered it myself.
I'm only interested in the larger buildings though and most who
sell them don't want to sell the big ones separately.

Once we move I REALLY want a 3D printer.

Also keep in mind the Mechs are on hex bases, so they are always going to look slightly elevated. That being said, I think it's okay if the houses are a little small. I don't think I would give a 'Mech partial cover for standing next to one, necessarily, although if you're playing AS strictly WYSIWYG, maybe it would depend on the size of the 'Mech. I find it much more interesting to do LOS that way rather than to worry about what level everything is. For the game in the pics, any unit that was on the actual template with the houses was assumed to be taking advantage of cover.
