I'm about to run a series of desert dunes encounters and wanted some dunes. I wanted them to be fold-flat. I found a shape in DerekPages Terrain Megalith that I adapted. The paper I was using was too thin, so I glued it to another "dirt" texture paper - and BAM! It's reversible!
No new techniques here, so I'll just leave photos.

I really dig things like this. I've seen tons of beautiful buildings, but I get a lot more utility on the game table from natural terrain, since most of my gaming encounters happen far away from civilization.

I like this idea a lot. The example shown has very steep inclines, though, which look much too steep for anyone to just walk up. If you want a gentler slope, you could make the hill only half as tall, but put another, smaller tier on top of the first tier, something like a flattish, free-form wedding cake. Then you'd be depicting a hill that could be walked up (or fought up), and make it possible for a mini to stand on the "slope"--which could add an interesting king-of-the-hill dynamic to skirmishes. The overall effect would be similar to the stair designs that use a few steps--typically four or six--to visually represent a staircase that would have to be 12 or 15 feet tall in scale.

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.
