I have created some simple bases for slot minis (is that the right word?). You can get the zip file containing 1x1" and 2x1" bases here. They have no textures, just simple green color for now and no instructions. I will add that later.
In these pics I have marked the inside with a brown felt pen to make it look nicer.

I am trying to get to the point where I can make my own ground textures, but that might take some time. I want to get much better at digital painting. Right now I am so busy updating my old products so that they look good again on the vendor page.
bravesirkevin: I will try that Kevin. Good idea to bridge the time until I have my own :-)
bluecloud2k2: I think they are easy to build and look ok to me. Let me know when you have pics!

Okay, did another one with a different grass texture.
Also modded the file to reduce cuts. Dunno if someone can make a cut file for this... I still need to unpack my robocutter and set it up but been hella busy. Is there an easy tutorial on making cut files?
And here's the blank template:
just select by color, click on the bright pink and then use Edit > Paste Into (make sure you have your full-sheet texture already copied to your clipboard).
I have updated the download file with the optimized layout and cutfiles (and a free grass texture i found on the web)!
Lightning, I just have to say you'se da man!!!. This is EXACTLY the type of bases that I was looking for. They weren't much more effort to make than onemonk's and I like the stability of these a whole lot better. I took your png file and did some with a few of the free onemonk overlays that are on the donwloads page. Here is what I did with them:
I used the bloody sci-fi overlay for these bases for my gun crawl game. Now to get the xenos cut out and based and I am ready to play.
There's no such thing as sanity, and that's the sanest fact.
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.
