2mm Match Stick army
If you want a cheap 2mm army than this is probably the easiest way to get one. All I did was cut a few match sticks up painted them black and painted little flesh colored spots on the top to represent heads, nothing special and very easy to do. Cavalry and other units are a different story, I'm sure those units could be made on the cheap too. I thought about using an abstract representation for forces such as using small wooden cubes for elephants "or Behemoths if playing fantasy" And certain formations to represent heavy infantry, cav and skirmishers. Like I said this is quick, simple and cheap.
