Yeah..there are things like Robo-Cutter that will cut very intricate patterns. I found this on a site that focuses on paper miniatures (they have some amazing stuff)

@Smoking Wreckage -I am liking the laser cutting and it creates some cool options- Thanks.

The interlocking design you made is cool Clark, very stable. I am not sure which method to use straight walls or interlocking tiles? The magnetized idea is supreme but costly.

I like the laser cutter also. You got a spare 60,000 to 130,000 dollars that we can spend?

Freedom is the right to speak your mind.

It is also the right to walk away from those you don't want to listen to.

I would do the rules in dead tree and PDF free or sell pdf s seperately. then keep everything else open for down loads as support again with the option to use any minis since the rules should be universal. then later if there's enough interest produce the mini line. rules in this format work example Two hours wargames. this format makes the rules easy to produce and sell. also you could have sheets of rules changes or up grades as printable pdfs for buyers to down load so they cna up date there rules. this way the only real cost is the paper book.
which is a binder type format.no big cover and binding which adds to the cost. you can sell the pdfs from your site or at wargames pdf store and such.
