I'll happily post what I have. Still trying to think of what else makes sense in the army I plan to use.
Here is the one I did of the Commander. I really need to clean up the rifle, but I am still learning how. I removed the hat, since really.... a hat?
Maybe it's made of bulletcloth? I likes what you're doing, the helmet with faceplate look like good environmental protection. I recommend putting a little bit of a highlight on the armor and weapons, otherwise the colors can kind of blur together.
Ok, so the hard drive these were on crashed, which is generally a bad thing. However, I discovered a thumb drive in my posession that contains all of the originals. Yay for unintended backups!
Army pages 1 and 2 will go up as soon as I can put them up somewhere. These pages contain three strips each, page 1 contains one strip of 7 troopers, one strip of 5 troopers and 2 rocket launchers, and on strip of special weapons including two machine guns, one "sniper" or laser rifle, one grenade launcher, one flamethrower, and one standard trooper.
Page 2 contains 3 strips, one with two troopers and three Officers or NCOs, one special weapons strip as above, and one strip containing a demolitions trooper, a comms trooper, and two medics.
I also just discovered that I maintained the steps of the conversions, and thus have a set in Drop Troopers grey, and a set of dudes with full face helmets in the original Terraforce green camo. A couple of the necks need touching up to make them look fully sealed, but I can post them either way if people want em.

Thanks a lot for posting these guys. These are awesome and I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of them. Is there anything I should know about printing models saved in .png format? I haven't worked with that format before and I want to make sre they print out at the same size as my other figures.
As for other bitmaps, it's a matter of resolution (dpi, dot per inches). IrfanView tells me that these pictures are set to 100dpi, for a printing size of 8,5 x 11 inches. If you need to change this, just play with the DPI value, so you'll not loose quality by changing printing size.
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
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...
