Make: Projects – Shrink-film gaming minis
shrink film minis

Sean Ragan has done a lot of cool projects for us here on Make: Online. One of my faves is his shrink-film gaming minis tutorial. And even better, in it, he makes gaming pieces for one of my all-time favorite Steve Jackson Games’ classic sci-fi wargames: OGRE!

We’re slowly, but surely, moving all of the projects we’ve posted here online (and many from the magazine) into our Make: Projects platform. There, they can grow and change as you do the project and update the (wiki-based) project articles. Did you build shrink-film minis based on Sean’s original post? If so, what did you learn in the process that you might share with other makers? Got any pictures of your minis? Add them to the piece. It’s easy!
