Modern Minis?


Recommended Posts

Right. I'm working on a modern gang warfare based BRP campaign. The group I'll be GMing for are use to playing HeroScape, a miniature wargame. I feel it would keep their attention more if I get some minis for them, the enemies and various cars.

Any suggestions? The game will be taking place in the year 2013.

I love metal figures and enjoy painting them - however - sometimes I fell there is a need to fill a void for for the occasional missing miniature.

What I have done in these instances is to find an image/model on a web site and capture it (right click and select copy image). Paste it twice into a word document rotating one of the images (one above the the other - head to head) and then print it off. Fold the paper over and cut it out. Place in a plastic holder. One instant model. You can get around 10 to 12 figures easily onto a single sheet.

To make the figures more durable you can print on card and then fold and even laminate afterwards.

Using this method you can carry thousands of figures in a single shoe box.

Example plastic holders (ref: CS2) that I use can be can be found in the UK (20 counters for £1.02) at: http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/GAME_AIDS.html Red for enemies and Blue for friendlies.
