Idea for Swarm Paper Minis

I really like the paper minis line.
I have one issue, which came up repeatedly during gaming.

It is far easier to use a swarm mini, if it is just outright flat, not a figure, like the other ones.
It's easier to move it around, and it is far more obvious who is caught in the swarm after it moved...

So, would it be possible to just give us a picture of a swarm (of the correct size), without the base, which can be laid onto the battlemap?

Skull and Shackles paper mini's for wormwood mutiny has flat swarms for mosies and Botfly swarms as well as the stnd up type. But are you referring to the card pawns from paizo or the paper mini's?

If its the paper minis then it should be easy, all you would need to do is cut off the base bit.

Maybe if it the swarms from the bestiary box why not just lie the figure flat without the base and lie it under the mini of the PC? Should do the same or maybe blue tak them to a pice of card the same size of the facing of the swarm?


Swarms are able to change their shape from a square to a line, which is why they are flat tokens instead of stand-up tokens in the Pathfinder Paper Minis line.

The KM paper minis #1 + #2 have a lot of those flat tokens (1" in diameter):
#1 has spiders;
#2 has rats, bats and centipedes (and both have lots of other cool stuff!).
