Patreon: Intrepid Mechanoids

31 January 2017 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 
They're still not cut up.

Here is the 14th batch of RPG paper miniatures I created and released at my Patreon page. Call them mechanoids, drones, droids, bots, synths... they are useable for any science fiction RPG campaigns with droids.

There's space to write names too.

There are mechs than walk, waddle, roll and climb which can be used as player characters or non-player characters at your gaming table. There is space to write their character names too.

The six designs.

Click here to go to Patreon and download the free Pioneer-class release. The Mariner-class release with enhanced colouring (like the ones in the photos above), and the Voyager-class release which also includes six full-sized printable character artwork, have also been released for patrons.

Thanks to my Patrons for the opportunity to make these paperminis!

 

Patreon: The Uplifts of Space

04 January 2017 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

Returning to the themes of transhumanism for the Hishgraphics paper miniature releases on Patreon, here are some uplifted animals to be used in your campaign. There are two designs each of crow uplifts, octopus uplifts and chimp uplifts perfect for your science fiction campaign.

Genetic modifications in the future allow for some animals to possess human-level thoughts and consciousness.

Patreon: Human Adventurers

01 December 2016 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

I have uploaded a pair of new paper miniature releases for Patreon, but forgot to announce it here. So here are the two sets of freely downloadable PDFs usable as player characters (PC) or non-player characters (NPC) in any medieval fantasy roleplaying game campaigns.

Rangers of Sword Valley

These guys are woodsmen and warriors

Sword Valley was once the most dangerous regions of the wilderness and filled with deadly creatures and hideouts of murderous brigands. Until the Rangers appeared out of nowhere and cleansed the valley of evil and danger. Now the valorous services of the Rangers of Sword Valley are in demand throughout the land - even when there are whispers of a dire secret being kept by these skilled woodsmen.

Wilderfolk of the Dust Plains

Denizens of an arid land

In the arid, dry lands of the Dust Plains where death await even the most prepared adventurer, there live the hardy Wilderfolk who can survive the worst of droughts. When a Wilderfolk leave the Dust Plains to join travellers from other lands, there is certain to be an intriguing and astonishing story behind it.

Feel free to become a patron, or share with your circles! Thanks.

 

Patreon: Black Ops Spies

30 September 2016 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis
 

The 10th batch of paper miniatures for use with tabletop role-playing games has been released on my Patreon page.

The Improbable Missions Force

Again, use these for any spy games from Top Secret S.I. to Covert Ops. It is highly possible that you could use these even for modern Lovecraftian games with secret agents such as Delta Green or The Laundry.

As per the previous releases, the Pioneer-class file (with flat colours) is now free for download. The Mariner-class (with shaded and highlighted illustrations) and the Voyager-class files (like the Mariner, plus full-sized character artwork!) will be made available at a later date for patrons.

Hopefully tomorrow.

Get that door!

A great big THANK YOU to all Patrons for your contributions and encouragement for me to be able to do this. The main Hishgraphics Paperminis Patreon page can be accessed here.

 

Patreon: High Society Spies!

31 August 2016 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

My latest Hishgraphics Patreon Papermini set has been released!

Download the PDF files at the link above for use in espionage tabletop role-playing games, from Night's Black Agents to Covert Ops! This series of paper miniatures display a group of secret agents in high society (or what I think is high society based on a miasma of movies that merge together in a single mass in my mind) trying to schmooze it up with guns and high tech devices.

"At least it\'s what this brown-skinned Asian dude think "high

As per the previous releases, the Pioneer-class file (with flat colours) is free for download. The Mariner-class (with shaded and highlighted illustrations) and the Voyager-class files (like the Mariner, plus full-sized character artwork!) are also available for patrons.

Three boys and three girls

If I have some time in the next couple of weeks, I will create and release paperminis of mooks for these guys to fight it out with. A follow-up release to this in the future will be spies... in tactical gear!

Use Covert Ops to run because I also did art for DWD Studios!

Can't wait to use this for Covert Ops!

 

Patreon: Transhuman Heroes 1

31 July 2015 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

In a transhuman or posthuman setting, you are able to enhance your body and your mind with cybernetics or nootropics, or you could discard your body and drive a totally different body which might be organic or synthetic, or you could discard physicality and live as a ghost in a machine, in one of many simulated realities. Human minds are becoming more and more posthuman, being able to share their experiences, store their memories in exocortexes, fork their minds and reintegrate their minds later, and to create simulations upon simulations upon simulations for purposes that would eventually become incomprehesible to the human mind.

Players straddle that point in the post-scarcity setting where anything could be created with a 3D printer, from food to entire space habitats. Just died? Retrieve your cortical stack where your memories are stored, print out a new body and insert the stack into the receptacle in the brain, and you're back. Are you a new individual or are you the same? What if you fork your mind and there are dozens of you walking around in either similar bodies as you or in different-looking bodies? Are they all still you?

These are questions posed when you play RPGs like Eclipse Phase. Of course it's not all just heavy discussion on philosophy. You also get to shoot bad guys with railguns and beam weapons.

Get them flat!

Here is the first set of Transhuman Heroes paperminis I created on Patreon. These are all organic human bodies. No mechanical bodies, uplift bodies nor bodies adapted for conditions such as like in the skies of Venus or the seas of Europa.

All six Transhuman heroes

Paperminis for those other types of bodies will be released soon. As usual, the download is a PDF of two sets of six characters as seen in the photo above.

The ninja dude is surrounded by fans

In the meantime, please download and assemble them from the Patreon creation page here. Also, support me on Patreon for me to be able to create more paperminis for tabletop RPGs!

 

Patreon: Lovecraftian Investigators 3

10 June 2015 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

Lovecraftian / 1920s Pulp Investigators paperminis have been released on Patreon! For this batch, I drew six new artwork, namely: the Actress, the Game Hunter, the Professor, the Singer (or the Musician), the Farmer and the Writer who looks a bit like H.P. Lovecraft! Download them from the Patreon page here!

The Game Hunter probably forgot his ammunition

The new group meets a Nightgaunt! But not for dinner! The Writer stays all the way at the back!

Please don't take my brain, I'm pretty much attached to it

But then the Writer gets surrounded by a trio of Mi-go.

I hope they all brought lunch

The whole gang together! For the higher resolution Mariner-class release, or the Voyager-class release which includes a printable pdf of character artwork please support the Patreon and download them here.

 

Patreon: Lovecraftian Investigators 2

15 May 2015 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

New Lovecraftian / 1920s Pulp Investigators paperminis have been released on Patreon! For this batch, I drew and setup a range of characters on the pdf, namely: the Librarian, the Hobo, the Dandy, the Alienist, the Grave Digger and Aviator! I've always wanted to draw a hobo. Download from the Patreon page here!

Read some suggestions on how to assemble the paperminis here!

Don't cut your fingers

Let's see how both batches look like assembled after glued, folded and cut as seen above.

Here comes the sandblasting attack

The Alienist, Aviator and Hobo come face-to-face with some Flying Polyps.

This neighbourhood has seriously gone to the dogs!

The Dandy walk down a street at the bad side of town and are tailed by some sort of strange hounds.

The graveyard is where all the food are kept

The Grave Digger: "Why does it have to be Ghouls?"

No fighting in the library. Take it outside... or at least, to Yuggoth

The Librarian break up a scuffle between the Mi-go and the Nightgaunt.

CHEEEEESE!

Here's everybody from both batches, bunched together for a group photo, with the Dandy attempting to grandstand.

Download the Deep Ones and the Hounds of Tindalos paperminis here.

Download the Nightgaunts and Flying Polyps paperminis here,

Assembling the Patreon Paperminis

29 September 2014 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

Here's a quick tutorial on what to do with the paperminis once you've downloaded them from the Hishgraphics Papermini Patreon page and printed them out.

My free paperminis earlier were a no-frills, plain flat affairs which had no base for them to stand on. Those paper minis, when assembled, required a base assembly. For the Patreon paperminis, I thought I'd include something extra: several options for bases.

Here are some thoughts on how you can assemble the minis.

The raw printout on white card

The above is a printout of the free downloadable PDF sample of skeletons and wraiths from my post at the Patreon page. It was printed onto white card stock.

Then it's knife o'clock

Then I sliced and diced it to extract the papermini elements. As can be seen above, each element folds back onto itself on top (towards the papermini's head) along a blue dashed line. But it also has base tabs on the bottom (towards its legs). When assembled, the base tabs fold out to form a square base.

 

Hishgraphics Paperminis Patreon

28 September 2014 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

I am happy to announce that the Hishgraphics Paperminis Patreon site has been live since Friday.

Since I've been creating Star Wars paperminis and putting them on this blog for free download by the gaming community, why not go the extra mile by offering general (and not licensed-dependent) paperminis via a Patreon campaign. There will eventually be paperminis of characters for games ranging from high fantasy to science fiction to pulp to horror!

You will be able to pledge for paperminis at different reward tiers from general mini designs to customized minis of your own characters for your games! 

Or you could click on the link above to ACTUALLY go to this page!

Again, many thanks to a lot of my friends for their encouragement in one way or another, especially Ivan Tam for pointing me toward Patreon in the first place, and Peter Schweighofer and Josh Roby for their diligent feedback of the Patreon page before it was launched.

Check out the Hishgraphics Paperminis Patreon campaign! There's even a free download of skeleton and wraith paperminis for you to test them out.
