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 hope you enjoy this site!

Long time no update!

Ok, this time I have another dragon to offer - the diabolical red dragon, perfect boss for many campaigns!

Also, there are two other figures, namely beastman and werewolf.  These two figures were released in Onemonk's forum and they are now collected here for the sake of completeness.

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.
I hope this would help.

  1. Holy cow Eddnic! I've been at onemonk since it began and have seen your work progress to the point of AMAZINGNESS! I just built my first model of yours (the snakeman) and am amazed at how cool these things are. You can pose them to make each one look different! keep up the great work dude! I'm going to try and tackle your new Red Dragon today. What else do you have in store for us?

  2. Hey, Eddnic!

    I'm a fan and a user of your works, but, lately, I've been playing a campaing of Saint Seiya(I know, uncommon...), and I'm here to ask you if you could make some models of the sanctuary soldiers. 2 or 3 models will be of great help =D

    Thanks for now, and, congrats for your job, it's really incredible. =)

    1. OK, please let me know the models you would like to have and I would see if I can come up with something.

    2. Oh, ok, I was thinking something like this:
      http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-iN204QBPWAY/TWgjKwH1z6I/AAAAAAAAAyw/eFYeWyGDcTU/s1600/07-Soldados+do+Santu%25C3%25A1rio.jpg

      But, as I've told, 2 or 3 will be enought. If you prefer, don't need to be exactly like those soldiers in the image. And, man, if you do the models me and my party will be REALLY, REALLY, REALLY grateful, 'cause your works are impressive, and the sessions of RPG will become 100% better with these soldiers. =D

      Thanks, for now, and, again, your jobs are really incredible =)

      Ps: I'm sorry for any mistake, it's because I'm from Brazil, so my english isn't perfect at all yet. ^^'

    3. A Saint Seiya RPG? NICE!!! What system do you use?

    4. The system is the old but gold Gurps... Actually, it's my first RPG as a player, 'cause when I've found RPG players in my city, they were in a campaing of D&D, so I coudn't enter yet(They was almost ending the campaing), and then the idea of a Saint Seiya rpg has came and the actual master began to adapt some rules, and remake some stats(the attacks, the armors and etc...). Then a friend gave us some miniatures of Saint Seiya(Hyoga, Ikki, Shun and Seiya), just to represent the player(for example, my char is the Clock saint, but my miniature is hyoga), and since then all we need to finish the visual part is the Sanctuary soldiers, that I hope Eddnic can do, if possible... =7
