DND in quarantine

(1/3) > >>

Mr.Obvious:
So...

I've found a few friends who would like to play DND, like I would.
The rules here still do not permit a gathering of five to casually play a game like this, which sucks. But it is giving me time to prepare.

I bought a starter set and learned the necessary rules, so if I don't manage to finish a campaign on my own, we'll be able to play that immeadiatly.

However, I am using this quarantine to make a self-made campaign.
I've got the outline for the first session ready.

Still looking for pointers on forging my own cheap  materials though. We don't want to go in deep if we don't know that we'll like it. I've only played it once, as did two of the players. The other two never even played.
I can find non-expensive dice online. I've bought a giant roll of pattern paper to create some maps of my own. But I'm kind of stuck on the figurines / pawns.
Those seem expensive.  My players might be able to find pawns for themselves. But I'm hoping to find a way to get some baddies in there.
What I was thinking was paper or cartboard figures.



I could just print images of the creatures that I need and  then use that with a steady base.
But I can't seem to find something like that base online, to purchase.
Does it have a specific name, what you guys see in the picture?  My english is failing me.

Mr. Obvious, this may, or may not, be of help.  Waaaaay, back in the day, I used to own 15/20 solo dungeons, which had maps, paper figures and the like.  You may be able to find some of those on the net; I do remember that there were several that offered used, old games at fairly cheap prices.  You might be able to grab some and use those maps and material as a guide for you current efforts.

I used to DM on Roll 20, going to again soon, maybe try there

Looks like a goblin shaman or thereabouts.

Cardboard is great!  Any visual aid is helpful, but no need to buy expensive minis.

Any idea what the plastic base is called?
