Cardboard miniatures


Recommended Posts

Hello Herophiles,


I got to play a scenerio today with my kids. I needed civilians, aka targets for the game. I scrounge around and got enough odd heroclixs and what-boys together however most of them are supers. I got to thinking about just buying some civilian cardboard ones. So I’m asking for opinions on which company do you guys suggest?

I use train model miniatures you can get cheap on Amazon.  Something like 100 for $15.  And then gorilla glue them on to acrylic clear bases.  I also use heroclix which I pop off of their bases and put on clear acrylic disks.  O scale seems best at about 1:48 for heroclix but you can use HO scale which is 1:87.

I just recreated a template I used for cardboard heroes before i went heroclix.  Its a word doc file with two tables in it to place pictures.  Put in pictures of people and print.  Glue bottom tabs together and they create tented cardboard heroes.
