    I checked, and these were done with 120 or 200 gsm cardstock for the photos. I've used 210gsm in my home printer without any problems so you can definitely go that heavy.

    Jax, these were all made with regular 200 gsm cardstock. $6 for 150 sheets. I printed them on my HP color laser printer. The thicker parapets you see which look to be 1/16" thick are actually 5 thicknesses of cardstock. The outer two layers are printed, the inner three are actually one piece that is folded over on itself. It goes together really easily with just a few dabs of glue. (The thinner parts that glue back-to-back are the only parts that require glue.)

    You might be able to get something usable by printing on normal 75 gsm paper, but it wouldn't last very long. I definitely recommend cardstock paper.

    One of these days I'm going to film myself assembling this keep to show just how easy it is. Maybe I'll post a link here.

    Wow, that's amazing! I think I'm going to have to get me some of your stuff, Rooster (although as I don't game anymore, I don't know what I'll do with it!).

    Ok, wow, that is just blooming awesome! Makes me want a whole town to build and some sort of Steam punk train set to run around it....DOH!! What a great idea!
