Welcome!


Thanks for checking out my Patreon page. I'm an illustrator and avid gamer making printable paper miniatures for tabletop wargames. Each month I'll be releasing a new unit of fully playable paper minis for free. Patrons will be rewarded with extra poses, equipment, customization options, and a chance to shape the future of Paper Armies.


The Journey Begins...


When I decided to get back into tabletop wargaming, I was delighted to find so many resources and great rules being offered online for free. My only problem was a lack of models. I started looking for low budget alternatives which led me to paper miniatures. There's a lot of great work being done out there, but I wasn't quite able to find what I had in mind in terms of art direction, effort required, and presence on the battlefield. So, I decided I'd try to make my own.

After much research and experimentation I became engrossed in the world of small paper soldiers. In making these minis I discovered a very compelling intersection of my interests and abilities. I'm excited to keep working on them, and I hope you get excited too! With your support I will be able to dedicate more time to producing these minis and developing the world the characters they represent inhabit, in the form of concept art, illustrations, and story.

Here's a sample of the free monthly miniatures release: Free Sample Goblins Unit

Here's a free sample of the Battalion tier reward: Battalion Sample Goblins Unit 1/2Battalion Sample Goblins Unit 2/2

Here's a grassy base texture set up for regular infantry units of various sizes: Grassy Clumps Base Texture Infantry

For best results I recommend printing on matte photo paper. Once figs are cut out and assembled, trace the edges with a black marker. Glue the base texture to a piece of black foam core and cut to size.
