I have used pictures cut out and glued on poker chips.

I've done that too!

But I'm pretty cheap. Now I glue them to cereal box cardboard.

Haha, I sometimes rely on proxy minis as well for some games, and I use either pennies (well, our local equivalent, in the form of 10 kopek coins) or little squares of thin wood.
But I still prefer to have actual miniatures on their bases (the only things I keep as proxies are chits) because of how cool it looks!

I got some zombie miniatures from a store called Dollar Tree about a year ago, I painted the zombies, but it also came with tombstones and hellhounds. I started by painting the hellhounds black and then painted their mouths, eyes and teeth. I finished them today by putting an overcoat of red sparkle fingernail polish so they will "sparkle with an internal fire". Thought you would like to see them.

Awesome for a dollar!
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

And nice painting as well. Great work, Alman. They could even be Klingon targs in a pinch.

Thank you both for the positive comments. I think its fun to start with a cream, gray or white piece of plastic and then put some paint on and turns into a Skeleton, Zombie, Ghoul or Hellhound. :D

This was a Christmas present from my dad. He did the wood-working, I added the door, window trim, and the paint job. I painted the minis a while ago. Even forgot I had that dwarf. The guy in the top hat is a Christmas figure repurposed as a hobbit.

My dad's a great guy.
