Laughing and playing in the streets, crying and wanting their mommy, doing chores or working as an apprentice. What this release brings you is children. From babies to toddlers to children to teenagers, this release has it all.
Fourteen pieces ranging from a woman holding a baby to a couple of toddlers, children ranging in ages, preteens, and teenagers capable of helping with the chores or working as apprentices. Everything a thriving town or farmstead needs to continue growing. Young people of all shapes and sizes.
Dryw, these are amazing. Just the other day, I was lamenting not having a mother holding a baby. And I routinely need a stable boy to care for the PCs horses.
Speaking of horses, you did such an awesome job with those camels, that I'd love to see a riding horse and/or a warhorse from you. Xtea's big Belgian is beautiful, but it's harnessed to pull, rather than ride. Also I'd love to see horses in your style.
It's easy to put paper minis on horseback by simply cutting a small slot on the horse's back, and another at the bottom center of the mini. I've done this to mount Orcs on Dire Wolves, and it worked brilliantly. When your rider is unhorsed or dismounts, you just pop her back into her base. I'll take a picture tonight and post it.

Afet, I did the same thing with various One Monk armored warriors and One Monk's Nightmare. I actually ran off two of each figure, one for on-foot, and cut the black base tab off of the second figure and slotted them to mount them on the Nightmares (also slotted). Great minds think alike.
I tried horses and they came out terribly. I tried monsters and they came out terribly (hooray for One Monk monsters). I was surprised at how well the camels came out. I think I'll stick to people and character races for now.

okumarts, My answer for now is that my wife waves her magic wand and casts a magic spell way to complicated for my simple self to understand. She says she will try to write an explanation of her spellcasting technique and send it to you as a message in the next day or so.

Oh, love your stuff, visited your web site when you first posted.
Oh, and my wife said that the image is actually a screen shot of the PDF inserted via the image tag (whatever that means), if that's any help.
Thanks! This was just what I was looking for. I needed the Mom & Baby and the Boy on the Stick Horse last session!
But most Minis come with varied adults, but forget the kids. Historically peasants had large families because 1/2 their brood never reached adulthood. So any similar setting needs kids running about all over the place!
oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
Feb 26, 2019 12:24:18 GMT -9
Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
