    Looking for paper miniatures for NPCs and/or Creatures

    Howdy! :waves:

    I've been running the 5e version of WotBS and everyone is enjoying it so far. We're currently in Act 2 of Adventure 2 where Tiljan approaches the party. So I'm looking for paper minis for the Seela, at the moment.

    For the games I run, I encourage my players to get actual minis while I use paper minis to really put the focus on the characters, the heroes of the story.

    But, as you can guess with WotBS's campaign-specific creatures I'm not having a lot of luck finding anything. And I have zero drawing ability.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Hey, I am glad you and your players are enjoying the campaign so far!

    There are not many six-winged tokens out there. I would recommend just using fairies.

    In a more general sense, the Zeitgeist character art by Claudio Pozas works quite well as he did a lot of the WotBS art.

    https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...C-Portraits-II

    I took that art and put it in a more "pog" format for use with Roll20, but you can download and print them. They are not very high resolution though, as they are designed for the virtual table top, but they should be just good enough as they are essentially 280 dpi (300 dpi is normal print resolution).

    I'm not familiar with the WotBS or what Seela are. But if you are looking for paper minis, check out Printable Heroes: https://printableheroes.com/minis

    One Monk Miniatures is another, you can find OMM on DriveThruRPG.

    Both Printable Heroes and OMM provide cut files, so you can use a paper-cutting machine like a Silhouette or Cricket to cut them out for you.

    When I can't find minis, I second @Tormyr's advice. I find an image I want to use and use the Token Tools software from RPTools (https://www.rptools.net/toolbox/token-tool/) to make the token.

    Then I copy the token image many times on a letter sized sheet in MS Word or Publisher. I print it out and use a 1" diameter circle punch to punch them out. I use one like this (link), which allows me to see the image I'm punching out. Many punches assume that you are just cutting out colored paper and it is hard to line up to punch out an image.

    If you use card stock, you can just use these as your tokens. But I like to glue them to wooden or metal blanks. Some folks get fancy and cover the tokens with epoxy stickers.

    Thanks for the brilliant information. I'll definitely check them out.
