    My first thought was: “Hey a painted expample of http://www.sarissa-precision.co.uk/System Infiniti!”
    This looks remarkably similar to the naked eye.
    Selling a few printed sheets an some foamcore instead of selling a downloadable product is of course a good way to make customers buy the same thing again…. which somhow feels wrong to me, when considering the nature of the product.

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    Cyberwolf – exactly my first thought!

    He somehow comented the similarity.
    Both got inspired by Mass Effect and had the same restrictions ( as big as possible and fits on DinA4).
    I think it is good to have this option.
    On the one side you have the light cardboard stuff, which is allready painted, because it is printed. I still would prefer a version that is just an digital Download.
    On the other side there you have the much more durable MDF version.
    A third option would be great where both would work together.

    The difference between this and a “normal” card building. 

    World Works Games (love their stuff btw) recommend you use 110 lb cardstock.That equates to approx 160 gsm. 

    In this building Some of the foamcore is wrapped by the 200gsm card, this creates a laminate with considerable strength (the instructions on the blog need changing to reflect this as there was a change in process after I made them). 

    The 300gsm artboard is used for the majority of the building, either laminated with the foamcore, wrapped around foamcore supports, or laminated with itself to form parts which are approx 1mm in thickness. 

    So that the difference, normal card building 160gsm, possibly foamcore for the base. 
    my building, foamcore wrapped with 200 gsm card, foamcore supported 300gsm structures and 600gsm parts.
