Dave, i was looking at your cross-sections wall, and it comes to me to write this post, 'cause you're so good with photo-texturing (pls allow me to invent this term )
Now, we (players) have plenty of choice for buildings and tiles: your models, Worldworks set, Fat Dragon set.... what i'd need is, instead, vegetation. Bushes, trees, grape-vines, hedges, grove of reeds.... as i see them as cross-section things like your walls, they will be simple to build, easy to fold for storage, and they could allow for a fast, unplanned skirmish play over a green cloth, giving good terrain to play without having to build a whole village. We (players) have almost nothing of it. Have you any plan to do something about it?
You know I hate to send money to my competitors (although they all seem like really nice folks) -- I think both Fat Dragon and Worldworks have vegetation sets. Trees, at least.
I can't promise that I'll do anything like that soon, but I like the idea. It'd sure be nice to have some trees or shrubs to fill in those little extra spaces on the paper that I sometimes end up with, but don't know what to put there.
Yep. Fat dragon have that Forest adventures set. The only thing i'd use are the bushes: the trees have a 3D trunk (but i like the middle plane in the foliage), there's that dragon turtle that's nice but (to me ) with no use, and some other bits i don't need.
Nothing that i can use to make a believable countryside, when folks fights for its own cropland.
That's why i started mentioning your cross-section walls. They are exactly what they should be: flat (2.5d) walls without any other thing.
More, i like your texturing skills, and so i'd like to see your efforts in 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

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...
