Card armies for DBA and HotT

Dedicated to Magnus Lindroth,
who started me on the flat path.

Combining the low cost of cardboard markers with some of the visual appeal of metal or plastic miniatures, these pictorial card armies should prove useful to any DBx player seeking to try out something new without having to buy and paint a miniature army at substantial cost in cash and time. More will be added as I get around to doing them. To use the armies, simply print them, cut out the elements, and glue them to appropriately sized cardboard bases (or magnetic sheet or whatever else you prefer). Presto! you've got an army ready for the battlefield.
