After cutting, I fold the units using the end a finger nail – it gives a crisp edge to the folds. Once cut, the tiny scissor-cut nicks in the paper make folding easier, so it’s alright if you cut a tiny bit beyond the line. I don`t score the fold lines at all – even for artists` cartridge paper which is 130gsm – thicker papers may need scoring. As the parts are small, slight variations in folding can offset the model a bit and make the fit a bit tight, so sometimes clipping the corners off the flaps that slide into the paper cubes will make it easier to assemble. Before gluing, I do a dry run without the glue to check if I’ve folded the piece correctly. PVA glue remains wet for a little while so one is able to slide the flaps together once. I also use the handle end of my glue brush on the inside of the block to finally press the paper together firmly. After practice this all becomes easier.

    Absolutely worth every penny. I especially love the horseholders for the cavalry. While the dismounted cavalry are duking it out, one must keep the horses and their handlers out of harm’s way. They, like the Napoleonics, are very sturdy. I have stepped on them and with a little finger adjustment, had them up and in combat, none the worse for the experience. These are fabulous minis for use with school children in my after school games club. They can’t hurt them. John Bobek

    Purchased these today and had problems obtaining the download. An email sent and problem very soon sorted out.
    Marvelous looking little figures.
    This is a great way to cheaply get into a new era.
    Off to get the scissors and glue!
