Tonight I think I'll dig up my files for the Ruined Cottage, shrink it to 15mm, and choose textures appropriate for WWII ruins. I haven't released anything specifically for 15mm scale, so this will be an experiment. I have a hunch that there will be lots of folks interested in them, but I won't know unless I try!
I managed to fit the 15mm WWII version of the Ruined Cottage on a single sheet. I pushed it to 10.5" tall but that's actually enough clearance for both A4 and US letter-sized sheets.
I took out the stairs and some of the extra parts (ladder, bridge), but I figured these would be really fiddly at that scale anyway. I'm going to try the "slot and hide" method for attaching perpendicular planes -- which means that the tabs should all be hidden, and the whole piece should be pretty dern sturdy. That's the same method I used for attaching the wings on my new Solid State aircraft models, and it seems to be a good system.
The edges on this model seem pretty jagged. I don't think I'd want to spend that much time with my X-Acto. I'll probably simplify the edges a bit before I try printing this out and doing a test build.

We've switched over to 15mm for warhammer fantasy battle (we play it because we've always played it!) There's a big gap in the paper market for warmachines like bolt throwers, stone throwers, skull throwers etc...... I can see those working alongside metal/plastic minis too. Any plans? Your style would be perfect. Obviously they'd be better in 30mm then 15mm players can easily shrink them.
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)

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

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.
