Arion Games & Precis Intermedia Join Forces

Arion Games and Precis Intermedia, two leading publishers of paper miniatures, join forces to offer their vast collections in one place. In addition to the Ennie Award-nominated Disposable Heroes(R) collection, Precis Intermedia will now also offer Arion Games' beautifully-rendered collection for even more variety (adding all sets over time). To complete this partnership, the two publishers are slated to create joint sets, combining Arion Games' artwork with the flexibility of Disposable Heroes' customizable options, such as labeling, numbering, and the ability to create armies. Additionally, Precis Intermedia can also print Arion Games' sets in full-color and ship them to you as an option.

Arion Games was formed 4 years ago, and since then has produced nearly one-hundred sets of paper miniatures, comprising over 2,100 individual figures. With a huge range covering fantasy, sci-fi, historical, modern and even fairy tales, Arion Games has something for every game. Order Arion Games' paper miniatures via Precis Intermedia using this link.

Precis Intermedia incorporates one of the first e-publishing RPG companies and produces both tabletop and roleplaying games, as well as accessories like Disposable Heroes Paper Minis. Disposable Heroes are available in two downloadable formats, Customizable and Statix, as well as pre-printed sets.

Customizable Disposable Heroes are full color, downloadable paper miniatures that can be customized through an online interface. Specify the figures that are downloaded to a PDF file, and whether they are labeled and/or numbered. Entire pages of duplicate figures can also be downloaded, making the creation of armies a breeze. Each set is available as A-Frame Stand-ups, Tri-Fold Stand-ups, and Flat Counters. When printed, the minis are sharp and detailed.

Statix Disposable Heroes consist of beautifully-illustrated, ready-to-print paper miniatures in the same three formats but as a single, convenient download. For those who need armies, Statix sets give you just that--a filled sheet of each figure in each of the three formats, along with sequential numbering to keep track of duplicates.

I will really enjoy Arion sets with the flexibility that PIG Customizable sets possess.
Looking forward to this Graham!
Thank you.

PS: I hope you will not lose to much with sales going from the YGN site to the PIG one.

BTW Graham, I hope that I am not being too selfish in asking this, but I would love having the three Pulp figure sets being the first sets available through PIGs WEB page.

This will happen very soon. I have very limited (dial-up) internet access at the moment, but as soon as full service is restored, the rest of the sets will go up, and then we will start converting. One way to do this is to use the custom mini creator product, where you upload your own images. Just open the ppt version, copy the front and back images and paste into an image programme, then save to your hard drive. Upload these to the custom creator and voila!
