I HAVE that shuttle model, just didn't know how to rescale it. Thanks for the tip. The third set is coloured. I just need time to lay it out on the page. That'll have to wait until tomorrow. This set has 12 figures. I "borrowed" two from the proposed Bridge Crew set I was planning. It's just taking longer to finish. I'm hoping that for next weekend I can have the Romulans done as well as two top secret mini projects, that though not Trek, are of that era.
First posting here. Jumped over from the Savage Worlds forums following a link by Scarecrow. Just wanted to say how much I love these minis. Thank you so much for doing Klingons and other races rather than just Starfleet guys. Looking forward to seeing what else you have planned.
Back in the Olden Days, Heritage published the first set of authorized Star Trek rpg rules. I used to run some games of it, and designed a scenario for publication in Different Worlds. It was much simpler than today's rules and IMHO much more fun. These figures make me want to dust off my copy and run the game again!
Wonderboy, the figures look great all built like that! The background is inspired. I'd be interested in Craftrobo files, but I don't have a Craftrobo and won't be getting one. I'm looking to produce some commercial products and have considered including craftrobo files, but wouldn't know where to start with that.
I'm just back from my weekly game party. A friend developed a new game, and we playtested it in the last 3 meetings. It is a '70 Star trek themed game, and it is about building "episodes" of the series: you have a bunch of card to build the episode, then each player make a "round" taking the role of "the Bad" and playing the story "against" the Enterprise crew (the other players) using minis on a tactical planet map (or even the Enterprise map). I'm the one that put all the art made by hands by the designer in digital format, but after seeing you minis we're waiting to see if you do some "old series" figures, or we may even think to make the theme in "modern" Star Trek... anyway your timing is perfect .
A request: as that game needs to have cards with stats for the crew, may i ask if it is possible to have "big" pictures of the minis? Something like the previews you post here? I'll need at least the ... how is it called in cinema "jargon"?... the Face and the shoulders?
I hope no-one minds, I thought I might join in. I've tried to ape Okum's style and colours as closely as possible so that they're compatible. I'll do some more and then put them into a PDF. I'll move it to my forum too, if necessary to keep things tidy.

I just finished gluing the landing party set. They look really great. I will have to take some time to clean up the .gsd files and the modified .pdf's before posting. Should be able to get these posted on Friday.
Scarecrow - I really like your contribution. I say the more Trek the better.
Scarecrow, those are awesome! I wasn't going to do the characters from the cartoon, but I'm glad you did. I think after the Romulans I'm going to do a "Alien" set with gorn, mugato and all kinds of stuff like that. After that I'm thinking of doing some "movie era" Wrath of Khan era figures. Just to shake it up a bit.
Eep, these new figures are great. They are all so full of character. And to see that Scarecrow has joined the party just makes my day.
I also don't want to sound (too) whiney but if you do more Starfleet figures, it would be cool to see some guys in the engineering coveralls for background flavour. Like a lower decks set. I made some of my own using Scarecrow's mini maker and a bit of photoshop jiggery-pokery. Also love to hear you're considering doing TWOK style as well.
Anyone given any thought to making some basic Trek scenery? I've seen the photos of Scarecrow's TWOK bridge which looks amazing but have looked long and hard for anyone doing sci scenery which would suit the look of Trek. Most stuff always seems a bit too industrial for that purpose. Would kill for some of those cool TMP corridors and a warp core. I tried to make my own classic Trek set and managed to do a couple of passable walls and doors but have zero texturing experience so they looked pretty drab.
Hmmm... I may just have to try my hand at building that this weekend. I'm going to make it modular to pack away easier and represent different ships. Wonderboy, thanks for uploading the craft robo files. I may need to make some hallways and rooms, etc to go with that bridge set. But first I'm going to finish the Romulans.
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?

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...
