Substantial paper dolls

Recommended Posts

The plastic is a lot more durable and foam board can tear if you try and cut it with a saw.

If you just want your paper dolls to be square as they are when you print them off that won't be a problem. But if you want to cut them with a certain amount of detail as I have done then it will be difficult to do with foam board.

I also used plastic because it has quite a pleasing weight to it when you have finished cutting them out

You could try that but it might be an idea to try it on a spare sheet first as the varnish might make the printer ink on your paper dolls run and that wouldn't be good.

 

Alternatively, a much cheaper method would be to give the finished paper dolls a coat of PVA glue (wood glue) as it dries clear and gives quite a lot of protection from the elements

It's all good dude :)

 

I'll be looking forward to seeing some pictures when they're done.

 

After I found that the facing rules have been scrapped I revisited my plastic players and cut of the "front, back" labels and cleaned them up a little.

 

I just want the paper dolls for the other Guild's to be released so I can have a go with them too

My solution to stopping the paper dolls moving around by accident during play was to glue a 2p coin to the bottom of each one. Works fine but super lazy of me - this approach looks much better!

Are these what you use for your demo games?

I made these way back when the kickstarter was still going on. I am going to make some of all the teams at some point, just so that I can play test the different teams and figure out which team works best for me.

That is amazing! Paper dolls are a great way to start, and constructing them your way will get a player into playing Guild Ball while they are putting together their minis. Great tutorial!

Will definitely make some of these if I can somehow maintain the patience for it. Rather prefer the idea to proxying with a player new to minis as that just adds to confusion where someone already has no idea what is going on with miniatures. Good post, thanks for the necromancy. I think this post needs a little more love.
