I've been working on Super Heroes and Robots lately, but I was sorting through my incomplete works and found this team again. Scaling back my original ambitions a bit, I've begun working on the mummy again.
My gaming group stopped playing Blood Bowl and that took a lot of steam out the driving force for this project. Then I've only recently gotten my scanner to work again. At this point I just want to see it though, so all this work wasn't wasted. My current goal is to have a red and blue team finished in time for submitting to the June Horde.
Unfortunately, I constantly get distracted with cool new ideas and start them before I finish existing projects. This year I'm making an effort to complete projects that have long been neglected.

At this time I am not working on any other teams. It's hard enough for me to find the time and ambition to finish this one. The local Blood Bowl league fizzed out and I'm currently DM'ing a D&D campaign as well as rekindled my City Of Heroes addiction, on top of work, the kids, and the wife.
I spent quite a few hour working on this project and it would all be for nothing if I didn't finish and release it, so that's what is driving me at the moment.
That being said, if people were actually to get some use out of these it may inspire me to work on additional teams in the future.
I've also had some thoughts of an undead themed chess set...

Thanks. The Mummy was a lot of work. Jim never made any mummy models for the undead line, so I had to start from scratch. I based him on the old Heroquest Mummy, as it is hands down my favorite Mummy miniature.
Great looking team. Nice work on the mummies - must have taken quite a bit of time to do all those bandages.
I painted a couple of skeletons a while back for my undead BB team, the Midnight Maniacs. I planned for the team to have purple and dark grey as their team colors. I never got around to finish more than the skeletons, since it is not one of my most used teams - i prefer humans or wood elves. But at least with this set i can field a complete "painted" team
Looking forward to see more teams from you. Any plans on making a skaven/ratmen team for instance?
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...
