We started making these paper miniatures to help introduce young children to the world of RPGs and tabletop wargaming. And - what a great job they did, imagining and designing with us! The children were introduced to active roleplaying, thinking about tactics and it encouraged regular imaginative play. The children use the miniatures in their own ways.
These paper minis are a labor of love. We want to share them with you. We've drawn them with old school flavor, and you'll find that there are all of the character types covered, male and female, for the 1981 basic version of your favorite Fantasy Game, plus many many more heroes and monsters. We are committed to continuing to produce paper miniatures. You should see another set available next year, with more characters, and a mix of classic and exotic enemies.
Printing Your printer paperwill greatly affect the final quality of your miniatures. We've found that Epson Photo Matte Paper gives us by far the best results. We've used a mid range 6-ink Epson Expression printer for our printing.
Basing You have several options for basing. Here at the Medusa Mansion, we use the cheapest and hackiest basing method - binder clips. In the photos, you see bases that we "borrowed" from our vintage copy of "Swords and Wizardry" - not the OSR rpg, but an 1970's board game from HPG games. Also easily do able is cutting out 1" squares of card or foam core and gluing the minis to them,
Downloading We'll post up a no hassle no sign-in google drive link. Not high security on this one, folks.
