The "Ville en bois construire" play sets were in the USA in the long ago past.

I recall seeing one as a kid. But a quick search did not turn then up here now. Perhaps the best option is wooden block from Etsy:

I have always found the effect of the undersized building with the larger figures very charming.

They look as though they would be scaled properly for 6mm figures. They would be wonderful for that scale of gaming!

I use label paper to print out my paper craft models. I then apply them to 3mm thick cardboard, which yields similar results. This approach, and my own, yield very quick, usually very easy, results, which look quite good, IMO. Thank you, for sharing! Cheers!

I used coverings I designed with Model Builder software printed and appied to Lego blocks. In this case, 6mm scale buildings.

Good idea, Dye4minis: they provide some heft as well as strength for paper buildings.

Very nice.

I love the texturing on the buildings and walls. The walled city is an especially nice touch.

I've made and printed some of my own on cardstock, though paper will work. The former need little if any support, if you are careful. Gluing that onto wood, foam, or plexiglass would indeed improve the buildings' structural integrity.

Thanks,Guys.The paper buildings look great when built and can be of great wargame service with some support/ backing strength. There sure are a lot available on the web.

Never thought of clothing Lego's with paper skins… Looks very good, for very little money, time, and effort! Brilliant idea, Dye4minis! I will be sharing this TMP page with my historical gamer friends, who play a lot of 6mm WW II. Cheers!
