Assembly of the 50F Trifold Miniatures?

#1 Postby warrenss2 » Fri Oct 19, 2012 9:35 pm

Okay... I KNOW how to do the trifold cardstock miniatures from the 50F type.

But doing the seahags eludes me.

Help?

Fold them in half, and clip one of these binder clips to the bottom:

Then remove the clips handles. The clip acts as a base to hold the flat up.

I can't take credit for that. Clint showed me that trick at MACE last year. :-D

To give my Hags a bit more heft, I cut the sheet in half, so I had back and front separate, then glued each to a piece of black foamcore. Trimmed around the edges, then cut small, triangular "feet" out of more foamcore so they'd stand up straight. I'll have to poke around to see if I have some pictures somewhere...

I think I'm going to combine both methods.

Sandwich some foamcore in between the two halves, then add the clip-stand.

Yeah, but heaping more praise on Clint might reduce his humility and make him ineligible for canonization. So, you'll just have to share the burden. :wink:

Oddly I made the same suggestion last year in a thread on this forum that seams to have disappeared

The file clips are 3/4 wide, I got a bucket full when i worked at a place that made microfilm and digital documents, they tossed out the clips when prepping documents. I found another half gallon baggy of them at a thrift store for $1 in the back to school section ware you should also pick up the $1 German drafting instruments and $1 steel rulers

The figure flats were from One of the few D&D Adventures that came with figure flats, also one of the dumbed down starter games for D&D came with figure flats.

Also the board game "The force Unleashed" has figure flats and 20 or 30 of the stands like in the middle, i keep finding the game for $1 at thrift stores
