Default Cardboard Type Used For _OGRE_ Minis

Does anyone know what terms to use for searching for the type of cardboard used in the _OGRE_ 3D playing pieces?

The material used for the cardboard counters is called chipboard.

The Oge counters are double-thickness.

Sheets of chipboard are sold at craft/hobby stores.

I used some to make 2D counters with the Battlefields reskin sheets.

It not very suitable for doing the 3D reskins - its very hard to cut accurate curves in chipboard with anything other than a die cutter.

The 3D reskins are better off using a Nightfall sheet.and reskinning those, as intended.

A laser cutter does just fine for this if you have access to one.

So does the Brother Scan n Cut with a much smaller learning curve.

I'd never heard of this but it looks wondrous. Have you used it to make counters?
