This site contains most of my paper models that I have started creating since June 2010.
Here, I must give my thanks to Cowboyleland for his brilliant idea on making 2.5d figures that are easy to build and look good from most angles. His method has been applied to make figures such as the wererat, snakeman, ghoul and praying mantis. My thanks also go to many friends I met in Onemonk (http://onemonk.com/) and forum (http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/) for their support and inspiration!
For the time being I can only post the finished products in this blog. In future, I hope that I can include more works in progress and also more essays on how to make these models.
I have recently made a couple of hero-quest style furniture. Originally, I want to sell them. But then I found that their quality may not be up to the standard of most of the furniture sets available commercially. So in the end I just decided to share them out for free.
To participate the May of the Dead Carnival, I would in the coming few weeks release some undead-themed minis to celebrate this great event! For more information regarding the carnival, see the following:
They are available at the following links:
The inevitables are a group of constructs which enforce some aspects of universal laws, and I find their design pretty cool! So, I end up making almost all of them, 5 from D&D and 2 from Pathfinder. They are now available at the following links:
Also, thanks for all of you who have left message here in my blog. For some strange technical reason, I still have not figured out the way to reply in my own blog. Anyway, thanks for your support, and here comes some of my response to questions raised:
1) Tutorial for making NPCs or other figures.
Well, it would be useful to have such tutorial. However, I am not good at writing and for the time being, I am afraid I cannot come up with anything very useful to help you. Anyway, I think if you want to make your own NPC, you can modify my models such as change colour, swap body parts and weapons. With more modification experience, you can start changing the face, weapon and armours by cropping from fantasy pictures, etc.
2) Building instruction
Again, this would be essential, but I am afraid I cannot produce something useful shortly. However, here are some advice for building small figures (this was extracted from my message on Onemonk's forum):
Due to the small scale you are going to work at, you would need tools to do the folding as our fingers are simply too large for such tasks. A pair of tweezer will help a lot! It will also help in gluing small parts together.
A cutting mat is the second tools that I would recommend. It will help to make precision cutting much easier. Scissors are good for curves, but for small parts, cutters with cutting mat will make cutting much more precise and easy.
Also, I found that for small figures (i.e. human size or smaller), building them in cardboards does not make them stronger, and they are much more difficult to work with. I would prefer thinner paper, or even ordinary paper.
