How the hell did I do that??

This is a follow-up to my post about Kobblestone; Apparently, I forgot that I did try making my own false-front building before. Not only that, but I tried doing it in forced perspective- and I think I did a pretty damned good job of it.

I think this was about three or four years ago, I threw this together. And it was specifically for lining the back of my bookshelf housing my fantasy miniatures. I only got around to building this one front.

But, Lord only knows, how the hell did I do it?? I can't remember. I certainly couldn't have just bumbled my way into this piece. I suck at math, though I aced Geometry. Still, I can't think how I did this, otherwise, I think I'd might make more.

(On a side note, does anyone know who makes nice figure flats (for a decent price)? I was thinking of trying my hand at it. Specifically, I was thinking of using flats for playing Two Hour Wargame's Joust game. I guess my Google-fu isn't that bad; I'll have a look around.)


  1. Honestly if you didn't add the second picture I would have sworn it was a whole building. Nice work.

  2. deconstruct it, as that might spark some memories...

  3. It looks like you might have used a single perspective point, and built in order to support that. I think it's likely you did it by eye, I'm not positive though....

    This is a great idea, one I think I will be stealing for something!
