Tonight I think I'll dig up my files for the Ruined Cottage, shrink it to 15mm, and choose textures appropriate for WWII ruins. I haven't released anything specifically for 15mm scale, so this will be an experiment. I have a hunch that there will be lots of folks interested in them, but I won't know unless I try!
I managed to fit the 15mm WWII version of the Ruined Cottage on a single sheet. I pushed it to 10.5" tall but that's actually enough clearance for both A4 and US letter-sized sheets.
I took out the stairs and some of the extra parts (ladder, bridge), but I figured these would be really fiddly at that scale anyway. I'm going to try the "slot and hide" method for attaching perpendicular planes -- which means that the tabs should all be hidden, and the whole piece should be pretty dern sturdy. That's the same method I used for attaching the wings on my new Solid State aircraft models, and it seems to be a good system.
The edges on this model seem pretty jagged. I don't think I'd want to spend that much time with my X-Acto. I'll probably simplify the edges a bit before I try printing this out and doing a test build.

We've switched over to 15mm for warhammer fantasy battle (we play it because we've always played it!) There's a big gap in the paper market for warmachines like bolt throwers, stone throwers, skull throwers etc...... I can see those working alongside metal/plastic minis too. Any plans? Your style would be perfect. Obviously they'd be better in 30mm then 15mm players can easily shrink them.
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...
