Paper Smalls


Want to make some custom paper miniatures with your adventuring party? With my Paper Small bases, you and your pals can concentrate on making the clothing, hair, weapons and tools - and you can easily change them out as you level up!

In addition to the these 13 blank character bases, there is a full-color Riot Bonezerker - my own tiefling ranger from d20 Dames. You can use this as a prototype example. Download for your tabletop game, classroom, smaller siblings/kiddos or a crafternoon! In my ten years of teaching kids AND adults comics creation and character creation, a big hump is making it 'look realistic'. To give your players some agency in how their characters can look and an ego boost, provide them with these bases  and they can make the important parts: the fireball spell, a bread sword or a sweet bronzed helmet! But as you can see from some of the examples below - it's totally fine to draw straight onto the base instead of making separate clothes with tabs.

Instructions included on how to cut and stand; most importantly, print out on cardstock paper OR gather some glue and light cardboard (like cereal box thickness) to create your own Battle Backing!

Are these the appropriate size to use on shrinky dink film?

Adrianna, I'd say so since these range from 4" to 6". Although it has been awhile since I've made shrinky dinks - they shrink to about a third of their size? Sounds like you have a cool project in mind to make them sturdier!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
