Does anyone know of a source for meeple-like game pieces as in Carcassone, StreetSoccer, Diamant, and so forth?

If you feel so inclined, you can always make your own with a scroll-saw. Here's a great example of work done by a BGG member for Trias:

Although it may be a lot to spend on a few custom meeples for the saw, wood, and paints/stains.

Oh, yeah..I am aware of that Trias DIY upgrade. I like that set a lot. If I had a scroll saw, I would certainly make my own meeples. But I am asking for a commercial source because I don't.

I've followed these threads before and so far I guess no one has yet found a source for "true" meeples from carcassone? There are places that sell something that is meepple like, but not the actual original ones. I'd like to buy a bunch of those.

I'd also be interested in finding the diamant jems, if anyone can point me in the right direction... we've had 2 games so far where we ran out of jems, both red and white...

Might be easier to find plastic beads.

Use plastic beeds of a different color like the ones used in Niagara. They are easy to find.

Maybe you could use "Crazybones" like they did for Splut!
