I was looking in the web and i didn´t see any kind of vegetation papercraft, because of this i start to design in my mind plants, trees, palms, brushes etc. And hoping that this will be my first product to publish in rpgnow (Though i don´t now yet how to publish them ). i´ll start with palms tress. Soon i will be posting some pics of this proyect.

hey, back in the MMiP days I won a "Fabulous New Guy" prize for 2.5d trees that had places in them for figs. My texturing was sub standard and the design was prosaic but I still think it was a good idea.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

World Works games currently have the best paper trees. I have a whole forest from the Hinterland set. Their Swamp Wood Village has one maybe two types of swamp tree.
Fat Dragon Games has a set almost identical to Hinterlands, but it uses pictures of flock for the trees, not as detailed in my opinion but some people seem to prefer that way of texturing. I've purchased both sets and as soon as I get around to making GSD's for the FDG set I will integrate them for more variety.
WWG Skull Cove has tall grass and palm trees.
There was another set of paper trees on RPG Now that I purchased years ago. They are okay, but I never ended up using them.
The great thing about paper trees, bushes, etc. is the more you have and the larger the variety, the more realistic it looks. ;D
Personally I would like to see Alien Vegetation. Large Horse Tails and other prehistoric plants, as well as the truly odd.
Thanks guys, is good to hear that you like it. I starting now with textures and when i finish it will post some photos, after that i will start with the second species of palm: Fenix palm, this is more robust that pindó palm. Thank again

Just an experiment.... needs much better texturing, but the basic idea works
I'll do some more work on the idea and see if I can improve my textures. Doing them this way could make an infinite number of combinations pretty quickly. It's just a simple three sided fold cut off flat at the bottom and glued onto a separate base. (I've been texturing my bases, makes the figs look great).
Hey guys. Cowboyleland your trees are great i like them, i have downloaded them some time ago, great work. José I am projecting another kind of trees too, but i want to finish first with some species of palms. Great work with your trees. Good idea to put some stones in the base it will give more stability. And finally squirmydad congratulations you reach the your post number 1000 ;D

I've started basing all of my paper models the same way I would a 3D sculpt. It adds a lot of stability and gives them some weight (my bases are magnetic card too). By the time you've got basing sand and a few rocks on the magnetic base, they are starting to have some substance. I've noticed the players in my group treat the models with a lot more respect this way too. As they aren't 'just paper', players are really starting to appreciate the art work now.
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.
