Additional Cardboard + Plastic Furniture Pieces

Postby Spookyhappyfun » Sunday September 3rd, 2017 7:50am

In my quest to expand HeroQuest, one of the things I've been looking for is additional 3d furniture and dungeon decorations. While I like that there's companies like Zealot Miniatures who are making very detailed and fantastic pieces that seem to fit the scale, I feel like one of the things that's missing for me is the sense of simplicity and versatility of the originals. Something about the originals' simple one-color (but paintable) molded plastic pieces mixed with printed color cardboard just worked beautifully and gave everything a feel that hasn't yet been recreated, in my opinion.

This led me to wonder, has anyone tried their hand at designing additional furniture like that that does seem to match the originals? I know we've got some great miniature sculptors here and some beautiful tile artists. Maybe they can get together and work to design something with 1 or 2 simple single-color plastic pieces that work together with a printed color cardboard piece.

Also, does anyone have any ideas of what furniture would work and how it could be designed?

I think a bed would be a fine start. I think the head and footboards could be brown plastic pieces with the mattress/pillow/sheets printed as an image on cardboard that fitted into the plastic much like the table.

Thoughts?

Try DM Scotty on YouTube.

His furniture is Heroic scale and at appropriate detail levels. Barrels, beds, bedding, doors, etc.

You can even HQ it up by adding rats and skulls everywhere.

You can even mix his designs with pre printed cardboard parts, and honestly you dont need an artist to recreate the HQ look. Just re-use the original art or run a photo you find on google through a comic type filter.

Remember to post pictures of your projects!!!!

I mean, don't get me wrong, I like other sculpted miniature furniture and homemade stuff. I've seen some incredible things. Hell, I just made my first Zealot Miniatures purchase this weekend, and I'm sure it'll be the first of many.

But I was specifically thinking about the style of the HeroQuest furniture with their mix of molded plastic and cardboard. I feel like it's such a unique look that it'd be fun to see someone try their hand at replicating.

It looks like this guy, along with an entire new quest pack, has the idea for new columns that resemble the original HeroQuest furniture.

I wish I knew more French.
