I found these many moons ago, and now, of course, cannot find them again. Hopefully, someone has a link to what I am talking about, or can direct me to something similar.
It was essentially a top-down view of a medieval battlefield, complete with battered shields and broken weapons, as well as, I think some bones, that could be printed out and then glued to cardboard, linoleum floor tile, or whatever, and with the help of some folded clear plastic and a couple of staples, could be used as a base for miniatures.
Any help would be much appreciated. I will continue my search, and if I ever do find it, I'll post a link.
I appreciate it, but all of that is on the wayback machine, only the waback doesn't seem to be picking it up.
Speaking of Agincourt, though, I did find this, www.donatoart.com/gallery/agincourtmiddleb.html which is a top-down view of an artist's conception of the battlefield. I shrunk it a bit so it would be just about 25mm scale, maybe a little smaller. It can serve as a base. Nice, though 'busy', and it would give something of the effect of the dead and wounded being trampled by fresh troops. Vicious, but effective, I think
Note that I hope the link to the artwork itself doesn't violate the rules here. I have not grabbed or modified it, at least not here, and it is certainly legal to point out the artwork itself, and even to print and modify it for personal use.
However, if I have broken the rules, please just erase the link.
Just did a quick text on the archived Zio Prudenzio items linked-to above, and WaybackMachine seems to redirect the links to a different place among the archives, but the elements for all three games do download fine after that, and are all still available there. You do need to click on the tiny red arrows though, as the old hyperlinks from the map and mini images don't seem to have been archived.
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

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.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
