Myrmidons (Cardstock Characters™)


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 14th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

These beautiful miniatures by noted fantasy artist Amanda Kahl are the ideal addition to any sort of tabletop fantasy RPG or wargame and can be used to enhance encounters or even serve as the basis for them. 

This set of downloadable Cardstock CharactersTM miniatures contains 10 different figures, including seven Myrmidons representing members of various iconic classes, a Myrmidon cavalier mounted on a giant beetle, a "Myrmidog" war beast, and a giant ant pack animal. Multiple copies of some figures are included on the page to round it out, and a horizintally-flopped version of the entire set is also provided to allow for additional variety. 

In Classical mythology, Myrmidons were created by Zeus to repopulate a land where nearly everyone was killed by a terrible plague after its ruler, the only survivor, prayed that his country be made as populous as a nearby ant colony. Its inhabitants were, accordingly, transformed into people that were manlike in form but which remained antlike in many other ways. Myrmidons are generally tall, and often proportioned like Olympic athletes, but there their similarity to Humans ends. In place of skin, Myrmidons are covered with bronze-colored chitin that resembles full plate armor of an ancient style, and this is often augmented with paint, crests of feathers or horsehair, and other decorations.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
