Props for Tabletop Gaming

NOTE: The graphics on these pages were getting a little heavy for those unfortunates still stuck with drearily slow modem connections, so I've split it up into a bunch of sub-pages. Enjoy.

Return to the Roleplaying Page

I've always enjoyed making models and painting miniatures, and I like to use them in my roleplaying when I can. One thing which frustrates me about using miniatures in gaming, however, is the sight of these lovingly painted figurines standing in the middle of a bleak, white hex-grid with rough squiggles in whiteboard marker supposedly representing the layout of the Crypt Of Ultimate Evil. It seems like a waste of effort to go to all the trouble of creating these little masterpieces for such a situation; you might as well use spare dice to denote the characters and their adversaries.

I'd like to be able to use highly detailed painted 3d models of the altar, the doors, the flagstone floor and so-on, but frankly, I can't afford to buy the things, and I don't have the time to build them out of plastic or whatever. Instead, I've built these paper models which I can just print out and glue together. They may not be of diorama quality, but they're worlds better than a squiggle on a map labelled "Peasant House #3"

The models and mapping modules presented here are designed for use with 25mm - 30mm scale miniatures.

The thumbnail images link to full-size images or PDF files which can be saved to your hard disk, printed, glued to card, and cut out for use in your games. These images have been created at 150dpi, and should give acceptable print quality on 300dpi or better colour printers.

Note: It is impossible for me to predict how the colours in the images will render on your own system. You may find you have to alter the colour balance to get acceptable results with your own printer.

They may not be sold individually or collectively, nor may they be included in any commercial package of any sort whatever without the express permission of Fitz. In other words, if you want to use them in your own gaming, fine. If you want to make money off them, tough, you can't.)
