Some place on TMP I saw two fellows making what were essentially 2D figures. May have been paper (but fairly thick card), not sure. IIRC they were printed in color and were 3mm. They Napoleonic or ACW. If made for other eras that would be OK too.

Can anyone provide a link?

Thanks, Al

I think they were MDF, 6mm, not 3mm, and I think it was these people:

Now 3mm by approx 0.5/1mm would be very interesting. At that size, genuine three ranks would look close to real, and if in paper then it could be practical. I for one would be interested in seeing those.

There are printed 2/3mm figures out there.

PaperTerrain has ACW and Napoleonic paper flats.

Junior General has lots of figs, many in 6mm scale that can be printed at 50% for 3mm. Give them a look.

Had not seen the ones from commission-figurines before. The paperterrain figs were one of those I saw. Don't really care for the thin paper look though. There is a least one more guy out there makings some. I am pretty sure he makes them for his own use but said he would make them for others.

Maybe you are looking for the products made by forwardmarchstudios….just a guess

Good luck!

I have the paperterrain figures and they do look quite nice on the table. There is also Peter Dennis's books published by Hellion. They are Apx. 28mm figures but can be shrunk down. I have shrunk some of his down to 6mm to use with the paperterrain ACW figures with good results. I just don't cut them out as much as the full size figures. He does quite a few different time periods too. He has a FB page link

I have some … very good stuff and also cheap if you want to try them out. They paint quickly due to being MDF and being 6mm you can't tell the difference between them and metal. I have units mixed alongside both Baccus and Adler and the work well.

If you do Face-Ache-Book there is a good group called '6mm Miniatures & Wargaming' which will have images of them in there.

Will you be in the vendor hall?

Hi DaleWill-

FMS will be there, but I might not be able to be there personally. Either way, it won't be a traditional store- there's only one product, the Forward March Miniatures Library, and it's only available online. So my space will be all about showing off what you can do with the figures and guiding people through the process of purchasing and printing them. I'm still working out some details, but rest assured it will be completely different from any other store in the vendors hall.
