Naw, not for me, as I've noted numerous times on TMP, for me the painting and all that goes with it is half the fun. However, if you are only interested in the gaming aspect, knock yerselfs out!

I havew used them in the past and even screws for Napolionics 1/4" foot 3/8" cavalry. However my prone 12mm modern are close to a flat glued onto a flat base.

I would like to use paper or card figs but am getting old and don't like the "white" bit round many paper flats and at 12mm its to thin to cut round the guns accurately. Now accurate lazer cut card, pre-printed YES PLEASE, but alas not available yet.

Interestingly I am a bit of a Hypocrit. While I would love Paper figures, 2D vehicles just don't cut it for me. I think its because, athough they can be on a "correct" sized base lines of sight would take more thought and of course turning the turrets would be impossile: exept on top down paper and having no height that is a total failure for me.

Paper terrain yes we even produce images for hill etc for 1/72 and even at 1/144 buildings are paper (fold flat).

I have a second home in Spain, so have started creating a paper soldiers army for use there. My aim is to make units with the same frontage as my plastic 1:72 units back in UK. I also thought this was a good way of trying out Andy Callan's 1745 rules which, with slight modification, may well work with my 1:72 Jacobite Rebellion set-up.
