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do need to click on the tiny red arrows though, as the old hyperlinks from the map and mini images don't seem to have been archived.
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)

wyvern: Nah, just rewatched the 1931 Universal "Dracula" movies (the Lugosi one and the Spanish version)
