D&D 3e/3.5e/d20The forum for conversations specifically related to the rules and procedures of Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition, 3.5 Edition, or any fantasy game using the d20 system or a variant thereof (commercially published or not).
I'm just curious, what do people use to represent characters and monsters on a game board? I've only got a few pc figurines that came with an old starter 3.5 game, and was wondering where to find more.
At Gen Con, they had a booth where you could get 5 minis for 4$ or something like that, it may have been even cheaper.
My group got a bunch of minis, and we got enough to cover staple monsters (kobolds/orcs) and our characters. To cover all the other mobs that aren't in our humble pile of assorted minis, we use wooden tiles. There are multiple tiles of each size fitted perfectly to our grid, for medium, large, huge, gargantuan, and even one colossal wood square. They work very well, especially because they are numbered, and flat, so you can mark them and keep track of them.
