It will depend on what's available where you are. The closest I have found in weight and feel is interfacing - it's a stiff fabric used in clothing to stiffen collars and so on. It is available from fabric stores or online.

Hi.
I used plain white wall paper for the praetorian camp. Beware where you punch the holes for the pins. Make several trials...


Cheers,
