Holy Monkey! That's a Nice Paper Mini

I've been thinking about doing something with mass combat in NOD using the Swords & Wizardry rules (because they're simple and straight forward) or the Swords & Shields rules by ckutalik at Hill Cantons that he recently made available as a free download.

In either event, I tried to make NOD more mass combat friendly in NOD 6, stating combat forces as squadrons (of 10 troops) and companies (of 20 troops) in one of several troop types:

Militia: Peasant Militia, Yeomen Militia and Scouts

Footmen: Archers, Crossbowmen, Handgunners, Slingers, Light Foot, Heavy Foot

Horsemen: Light Horse, Heavy Horse, Knights

NOD 6 is a free download, so I'm not going to go into the whole thing in detail here - just check the article on Western Venatia for more. Anyhow - last night I was looking for some paper minis. I think the Cardboard Fighters are my favorites (sample below), and I'd love some black and white templates of those figures so I could color them in myself with the blazonry of the different armies in NOD.

I also discovered the paper minis at The Fantasy Trip and was absolutely blown away! Check them out - you will not be disappointed (sample below) and you can't beat the price.

Bear in mind - each of these images is a clip of a much larger sheet.


  1. Very sweet and thanks for the free download for Nod, one of my favorite publications.

    If any of you do end up playing S&S please send me any and all feedback on how they worked (or didn't work) for you.
