I'm building up a small number of waterloo brigades for a battle of waterloo on a 5ft x 3 ft table using 28mm so not much space. I want to represent LHS and hougoumont, not at proper scale but just to show that they're there. Does anyone know of any paper models or even photographs from each of the 4 sides that I could use to make a paper building ? Otherwise I'm using a tudor house and a Dark ages Hut, so almost anything would do.

I found some old links but they didnt work.

Even something like this would do

again the link leads to a dead end.

Try googling "Hougoumont paper building" and look at "images".
Lots of examples are shown. Scale is not too important because you can always enlarge the models.I found a Hougoumont paper model myself many years ago, in BMP-format (24 MB).

I have of course tried that, and can see lots of fine models, none of which have links to the actual templates.

Did you have an example in mind ? Thats actually printable?

They'll want a little actual money, but Wargames Vault sells a PDF of "Waterloo style buildings" or some name similar to that.

I have them and they're very nice.

The following page has what appears legal 1/900 models of H and LHS, that look like they'll scale up (maybe touch up in MS Paint or similar)

Personally, I was just about able to build the model of LHS, but could not manage Hougomont at all.
