Thought I should put in a quick mention of my latest project, a hex-based boardgame kinda thing called 'Martian Zombies' with a retro 50s B-Grade SF movie feel... It's not to any real scale or anything... Here are some of the hexes:
...only the fancy ones anyway, there are a lot of different corridor hexes.

The game will have minis, but I have not done fronts and backs since facing is unimportant to the rules. They just have fronts on both sides. The game will hopefully undergo it's first play tests on saturday. I've just printed and cut out a set of hexes, and will be doing the figures this evening. I'm considering putting this on RPGNow when complete, along with Grolg's Feast (which is a much more epic project - I did all of the rules and design for ZM in five days)

No playtest yesterday, I'd forgotten my club was hosting a tournament, so everyone was busy. I have been developing solo play which is a simnple modification of the rules and tweaking the combat system a bit.

As a result of play testing today, slight modifications have been made to the rules for the Damage Control and Enivronmental Support rooms. And ideas have been discussed for an expansion - things which looks like they'll be cool, but I do not want to be part of the core game - want to keep it simple to start with. It's almost ready now...

Martian Zombies has been playtested again today with the result that I have decided against integrating a tweak I was considering - it made the survivors way too powerful. I expect it'll be ready to publish this week.

I've added an article on how to build your Martian Zombies set to my blog.(that's a link. It seems to be a stealth link and camoflagued to match the rest of the text...) be warned: may contain traces of zombie hippos.
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.
