This and That

I love playing wargames. I love painting miniatures. But sometimes I want to play the wargame before I have the minis. Our Unkerlant campaign has had some stand ins for a while but they were glorified chits. So, over lunches I've been working out something more vertical, that matches what I have painted. Viola!:
 Still not as nice as minis, but they'll stand in for now. I print them out, fold over, fold out the bottoms and glue to bases. Then, I'll put a piece of tape over the hit markers so you can use a dry erase marker. Cav and generals to follow.
I'll be doing the same for PIke and Shotte, as soon as I get the rules. They went to the wrong address, so who knows when I'll get them.

Are you aware of the vast repository of paper figures like yours at Junior General?

I don't know what their submissions guidelines are, but if you're that way inclined you could post your figures there.

certainly a good idea to go thru things in a cheaper method than purchase figs and paint em.

I agree with Kap Kobold, check out the paper figs all over the web.

Oh, believe me, I have. That's why I made my own.

I for one appauld paper minis... durable but cheap, and very portable. Plus, they are fantastic for introducing new rules and players to a game. Nice thing is after introducing the new player to the game you give them an army for their own.
