Paper Soldiers All the 'Paper Soldier' books contain figure sheets, as complete a collection of the types needed for the subject war as I could think of, and terrain items, trees and buildings. The ‘source book’ idea is that the reader is invited to copy the pages as often as he needs to build his army.

During the 19th century, toy soldiers were as popular as today, possibly more so considering they didn’t have to compete with anything digital. That said it was still a pursuit of the relatively wealthy who could afford armies of painted lead troops to poison their kids with. For the up-and-coming middle classes the alternative was to substitute the pricey lead for paper. These paper soldiers were printed and sold at relatively low cost, and could then be coloured-in and cut out by anyone proficient enough with colouring-in and cutting-out, which is pretty much anyone over the age of about five.
Those of you that are both war gamers and parents are probably familiar with the wide-eyed excitement of youngsters when they see your painted armies for the first time, just as you are with the desperate pleas to be allowed to paint some themselves. Whilst this should be a splendid moment of parental bonding, most war gamers wouldn’t allow the average 12 year old with a paintbrush anywhere near their collection, let alone a virtual rugrat. However, few parents would be so churlish as to deny the simple joys of cut-out, something that‘s actively encouraged from nursery age and produces results that are considerably less heart-breaking. They’re also probably a dab hand at colouring-in too, but you’ll be pleased to know that apart from a pair of scissors, all you’ll be needing for the creation of some paper armies are some modest craft supplies, a steady hand and a bit of patience. Oh and some templates to print out.
The best printable paper soldiers I’ve found are from a selection of slim books of the Wargames series by Helion Publishing, illustrated by historical draughtsman Peter Dennis. These also have the added benefit of containing some basic war games rules by Andy Callan. At the time of writing there are seven volumes and time periods to choose from: Battle For Britainseries: 1. Roman Invasion(Ancient Britons and Imperial Romans) 2. 1066(Anglo-Saxons, Normans and Vikings) 3. Wars of the Roses(Medieval troops) 4. Spanish Armada(16th century naval warfare) 5. English Civil War(Renaissance troops) Battle in Americaseries: 1. American Revolutionary War(British and American colonial armies) 2. American Civil War(Union and Confederate armies) Also available for pre-order: 1. Jabobite ’45(British Army and Scottish Rebels) 2. Castle Assault(Medieval sieges) If you fancy making some of the Jacobite ’45 troops (like those above) for FREE and scrapping it out in your very own tabletop Battle of Cul...
Materials you’ll need (affiliate links provided for the cheapest and best options I can find): 1. Scissors(any will do but I favour smaller ones about the size of nail scissors. Padded handles are definitely worth it.) 2. Stanley/Craft knife(for scoring and straight line cutout) 3. Ruler(optional! Some prefer to freehand it.) 4. PVA glue + spreader(latter is easier to use and clean than a brush) 5. Contact glue(for the bases — although I find the PVA works pretty good) 6. Card — 450gsm (ish) (for the bases) 7. Cutting Mat(or a thick piece of cardboard) — so your partner/mum/gran doesn’t skin you alive for cutting up the antique dining table. Once you’ve selected your book (or, like me, looked at the pretty modest cost and just bought the whole lot) you’ll need access to a computer printer, or, as adorably suggested by the books, a “colour photocopier”if you particularly want to feel like you’re living in the 1990s. Either way, you’ll find it easier to place them on a scanning or cop...
I wish books like these had been available to me as a kid (plus today’s colour printers of course), although if they had I may not have bothered with Warhammer at all. Where I only had a unit or two of metal skeletons to face off against my brothers paltry band of goblins (he claimed they were hobgoblins actually, to benefit from the Frenzy rules. Cheating git) paper soldiers would have allowed us both to field huge armies at very minimal cost. Infantry, cavalry, skirmishers, warmachines… even scenery and transports. I can’t get over quite how much you get in each book. It’s still a labour-intensive pursuit — you’ll probably not be making many more than six stands per evening (possibly more if you’re unencumbered by familial duties), but even the most proficient of speed painters would struggle to clean up, prime, paint and base the same amount of plastic or metal models in the same time. The units look good too, at least from front and back and up to about 45 degrees to each side....
