The H-tab is built from cardboard. It is an H-shape when looked from the side. Each side of the tab holds a dungeon tile (0.5cm thick foam board). On the surface, the H-tab has the texture of a passage way.

Thanks for your support! Just a few things to say:
1) the wall textures are from an old PC game (Might and Magic 2, to be exact). I convert the flat wall into something that looks like if it is viewed from the top by photoshop (shape transformation and then darken the lower side of the wall and lighten the upper side)
2) the half tiles are actually walls. My idea is to create simple tiles that have walls on all sides, with the walls occupying half squares only. When two tiles are brought together, the two walls would occupy one complete square. H-tabs are then used to combined them, and these H-tabs are also one complete square wide. The minis would end up standing on complete squares only.
I am now testing different textures and tile sizes. Hope to release the files shortly.
That's because Ebbles old web site is gone. If you are interested in my stuff, I could post something it my project area.
While i'm interested (or better, courious), i always feel a sense of "missing" when creativity goes lost in the bytes limbo due to a closed site. So, if you like and want it, yes, pls do it when you have spare time
I used 0.5mm foam board for the tiles and the H-tabs are designed for foam boards with such thickness. Since I think white foam boards are easier to obtain, the tiles are lined with black strips of 0.5mm thick to cover the sides of the boards. If you are using black foam boards, you can cut away the black strips to simplify building.
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.
