80's retro style hand drawn dungeon sections. The is a sample pack containing 2D five foot wide passageways with "3D effect"walls, rooms, objects, a couple of stand-up doors and so on. (In fact it's not as well finished as the actual Basic Pack is, but it gives you an idea of the type of look I'm aiming for).
If you don't like DriveThruRPG - you can download it from my Deviant Art page: fav.me/d2q6ljo
All this photos are of sections cut from the free sample pack. (see post above for link) It was also a sort of work-in-progress art pack - I've since sharpened up many of the sections, so that they look and fit together better.

Thanks and good luck with that. Remember that the sample set was a bit of a prototype in places - a little rough around the edges - also you're limited to 5ft wide corridors, but this set can be lots of fun for a small dungeon crawl.
I can see I'm going to have to do some photos with lots of the minis from this forum. I love line-art as a style, and many of the figures here remind me of the illustrations in Lone Wolf and the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks etc. Again, I think I projecting my nostalgia on the work of others.

All these classic style tiles make me want to design a series of classic style basic figures with flat coloring and thick lines to match. I know I have a few of the really old miniatures catalogs with some really great figure art ,nice and cheesy looking figure designs from the 80's and early 90's. I have a bunch of Erol Otus art as well ,I loved is style, especially the adventurers and monsters. JIM

Go for it! ;D I'm a big fan of Joe Dever and Gary Chalk who did a lot of designs for Games Workshop, as well as Lone Wolf, and 1st ed Talisman. I think that they was a lot of caricatures and exaggeration at GW in that period.
Cork blades? Corks as pillars is a great idea as well.
The story is that Yon (another forum user) is building a quest for the annual RL meeting. He asked for a column trap (which begins rotating with extending blades). I saw once columns made of corks in the Heroscape forum (there's a whole lot of great terrain builders, there), and so i told about it. Then both me and Leobester started building it. This is my version:
The blades are made by "rolling" paper.. i guess that a paper version could have some use. Sorry for the OT
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
