    Default Print & Play Minis

    I posted this in the art forum, but I thought it would be relevant here as well. I've started a project to create free printable minis of creatures from the D&D 4e Monster Manuals. So far I've created Lizardfolk, Kobolds, Humans, and Dragons. (You can download the PDFs of those minis by clicking on those links.) I'd love some feedback and suggestions of what creatures people are looking for. The project home is here: http://iheartprintandplay.blogspot.com. You can see what I've got on my docket and other suggestions HERE.

    Here's a couple examples of the minis I've created:

    I tried to Download the human ones to check them out, the direct download links for color said no document and the fileswap just froze and wouldn't do anything, gave up after 10 minutes of the page loading.

    :(

    Dang, that's super lame. Sorry Sturmcrow. I'll have to look into that. Thanks for the heads up!

    I'm getting the same issues. If it matters, I'm in Richardson, TX. Do you know what country the files are hosted in? I've heard that some file hosters started blocking US IPs a while back.

    Didn't download (as in saved on PC), but did open via FileSwap, worked fine for me. And I'm in the middle of nowhere.

    I must sincerely recommend Player Condition Cards, I like those a lot, plan on printing them as soon as I need them. It's really nice stuff you got here, OP.

    And mind me, can you please explain how to use the minis? So we like glue the back and the front together, and then cut through the circle, I...?
    I am not big on models.

    Thanks again, great stuff.

    I've updated my download page with links to download the PDFs from MediaFire. Give that a shot and let me know. I don't know what countries the files were otherwise hosted in.

    Thanks, I'm glad you like them! So to use the minis, obviously cut out the mini, then also cut along the black lines that go about half-way into the gray circles. After that, fold along the three gray lines and slip the cut bottoms together (they'll interlock) so that you wind up with a tent-style mini that stays together on its own. I recommend placing a penny on the inside bottom and taping it in place to give the mini some weight so that it doesn't tip or get blown away. Hopefully that answers your question.

    Downloaded the Kobolds and the Zombies from Mediafire, thanks!

    Hopefully can get them printed out to try. Though I still have a bunch of 1" stickers to put on wood chits (that I need to sand heh). :)

    For the almost a week I'll unfortunately be unable to dedicate time to working on my creations as I will be spending time with family. I will be able to publish a few posts during that time so stay tuned. Before you know it I'll be back to work on what you all come here for. =)

    Sadly I don't have the dragonborn minis completed just yet; I spent a lot of time finding the right look for my dragonborn and I went through about 2 dozen different iterations before I came up with a dragonborn template that I'm really happy with. Buuut, since I don't want to leave you hanging without a little something I do have two dragonborn minis from Monster Manual 1 that are ready, the Dragonborn Soldier and Dragonborn Gladiator.

    You're welcome!

    I haven't used Maptools before. What do you do to make in-game tokens for that?

    You can drag images into Maptools (which will be rendered as squares) or use Tokentool to either clip images or screen-capture and apply borders.

    Tokens can be scaled up/down in game, for small/medium/large creature's etc

    I've loved all of your work to date. I do however have one nit to pick:
    Aren't Llolthbound goblins purple or some such color to represent their ties to the Underdark?
    Like I said, a single nit. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks! Hm, interesting. For the Lolthboun Goblins I was just going off the image in the 4e Monster Manual 2. In there it looks to be the same color as a normal goblin. However, I just Googled "Lolthbound Goblin" though and a ton of images for a purple goblin mini popped up. Thanks for the comment Duos. Perhaps I'll put out an addendum to include a purple version of the Lolthbound.

    Thanks! I'm glad you like them. I had wanted to find a better way to differentiate the Lolthbound goblins from other normal goblins, but in the 4e books they looked the same so that's how I made them initially. I'm glad you mentioned that they're colored purple sometimes. I like having that more distinct difference.
