PostSubject: Cardstock Figures   Mon Sep 22, 2008 11:02 am

i cant find anywhere suitable to post this, so ill put it here :)

Because of the need for a multitude of figures, and the price they fetch when I paint them on ebay :) I found myself "flirting" with the possibility of cardstock figures (cardboard figures). After finding the ones they expect you to pay for to be pretty average at best, I applied my own limited skills to make my own, I am not an artist, but google image search is pretty good, I started using graphics already available to create my own. Here are some of them (a lot really), but this is not even half of what I have created!

any YES i agree that card cant replace metal, and yes metal is better, but sometimes you find you just dont have the required figures.

does anyone else here use cardstock? if so i am interested to see theirs :) my players are happy with these, they are infinately renewable, we can print more and more :)

thanx :)

cool idea but quick question what is wrong with plastic. You buy goblins for like 40 cents each.
