We have just started our new Mordheim Campaign, the aim being to play an entire campaign with custom paper minis that exactly represent the characters. I've used existing minis, artwork and even real people to help with the drawing, for the first run through, I'm only doing front views, I need loads of practice before doing the backs Anyway, here goes, I'll keep this updated as new characters arrive and bear in mind that a lot of these models are based very closely on existing miniatures.

I do all of mine that way so far five warbands and a few monsters.
I printed the bases onto magnetic sheeting..... it's used to make fridge magnets etc.. then just cut the minis flat footed and glue them on with PVA. It's amazingly simple, wish I'd thought of it ages ago, so far it's supporting every mini, even the dragon. E.g.

My drawings, but incredibly close to existing miniatures.. a Daemonette from you know who, a troll from Hordes and the dragon was a nice image that popped up when I typed in dragon. The miniature for that one is a red fire dragon, but I needed a green one. Not really art as I'm basing them on existing minis, I'm getting OK at the digital painting part I suppose though

Better photos now
Brian Fett the bounty hunter and Bloat the Nurgle tainted one. Brian is obviously a reimagining of Bobba with dark age equipment. Bloat is based on a forge world Great unclean one, altered to look like a hugely overweight human.

This is show I got started, I just started tracing figures I likes, and colored them however I wanted. It's also how I developed my ability to design with the same proportions as real figures.
I have said multiple times before, just trace figures you like, and just tweak them to fit your needs. As long as your not selling them, then there is no problem with all the copyright crap.
I plan to do this for the retro old school figure designs. I find it too hard to do them from scratch, so I'm taking old catalogs with the hand drawn representations of the classic figures, and tracing them. I'm only changing them to have flat feet, and maybe try to make them look not so cheesy, although that's part of the charm.
Anyway, the point is COPY, COPY and COPY, TRACE and TRACE more to develop your skills and style, then start drawing your own figures just the way you want, or if you trace in vector format, then swap out heads and body parts for any number of variations. JIM
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

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

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...
