Figures and miniatures are also used in other games, such as boardgames and tabletop role-playing games.

These miniature papercraft are a nice 3D alternative to the 2D and 3D miniatures available. I created these papercraft miniatures for my gaming. after a few days of testing and prototyoing, I finally got to the 28mm figures. One is a cylinder body and the other a diamond body. Both the cylinder and the diamond miniatures though are an improvement on the simple 2D minifigs that are found elsewhere on the internet.

Cylinder type

The cylinder body has a more robust feel when you place the 'skin' on the paper.

Diamond type

The diamond body are easier to craft and make 'skinning' easier but don't portray the front or back very well.
