Warcraft or Papercraft

Published by at 6:54 am under wow

Wow-Europe had an interview with Pascal who is PaperCraft designer. Pascal owns several blogs dealing with Papercraft; the main one is inspired by World of Warcraft. The World of Warcraft universe is so rich that one can find every kind of subject, therefore it is a very good source of inspiration if you are looking for models.


The first prototypes were basic, such as the mailbox or the famous Bad Mojo Mask. This hobby is getting more and more popular in the last years, with the expansion of the internet and all the tips that can be found there.

What are the main steps in the creation of a World of Warcraft Papercraft?

  1. First, the choice of the topic and in my case, it usually comes from my gaming experience.
  2. Next, there’s the creation of the model in 3D.
  3. When the 3D-model looks perfect, I move to another program specifically designed for the creation of Papercrafts. It creates a 2D pattern from a 3D model as it divides every side into printable pieces.

What is the World of Warcraft related mob, item, etc., that caused you the most trouble?

Magtheridon, definitely! I am still at the model/prototype creation stage and I announced it six months ago on the blog. I must say that I lost the model files twice as well as the instructions for the first prototype. It seems that this one does not want to be built.
Of all the finished models, the Green Dragon Eranikus was the hardest to construct. There are 43 pages and around 300 pieces to assemble; I suggest you do not go for this one as your first creation.
