After offering us the tools to create a basic dungeon via paper minis and the epic tool-kit to create your very own fortress, Brian Bartlow’s and Jonathan Robert’s latest fold-n-go instalment is a smaller offering, namely (surprise) an altar.
Following the cool design idea, the assembly of the altar can be done entirely without glue – only the optional candelabras require some glue to assemble. The altar can easily be assembled in 4 steps, add one additional one if you want a folded cloth on it and 2 for the candelabra. The instalment comes with a pdf containing only the pieces and an additional one that also includes the assembly instructions that are, once again, illustrated, making sure that you know what to do.
It should be noted that you may change the color of the altar’s cloth via a simple click from red to purple or brown, if you’re so inclined. If you want some blood splattered on the altar or some scroll-cases on the cloth, that can also be easily arranged via a simple click.
The pdf also comes with a jpeg of the cover as well as a .studio-file for use with robo-cutters.
Assembly is child’s play and support of different layers offers you the option to create different kinds of altars. I really like the scroll and blood-options, but I also have a very minor gripe: I would have loved to get a white altar-cloth with bloodstains or the option to add bloodstains to the cloth, not only the altar. That being said, for the very affordable and low price-point, this is still a very good buy. My final verdict will be 4.5 stars, rounded down to 4.
