Hello!, I'm a 27 years old boy from Spain, (so sorry for any grammar error).
I've been playing role games since... as long as I remember, and lately I've been learning 3D design (I'm an architecture), and I thought..... can I really use this for something other than buildings?, YES!, didn't knew this page back then, (and i have to say there is GREAT stuff here).
I started creating free armys for warhammer, which I believe you call it paperhammer (in Spain we call it, papelhammer, or, "man you sucks" ) I got most of every army done so far, but since the policy of GW is getting harder (at least in Spain) I'm not sure if it's ok to show you what I did, so I better choose to share with you 3 of my best creations so far.
They are 3 monsters for D&D... pathfinder.... or whatever fantasy role game you play. they are, a bullete, a troll, and a otyugh.
I hope you enjoy them, and encourage me to keep creating more stuff (a really big kraken is on the way...)
Hi, neighbour Very nice models! 3 models are welcome, more if they're not too fiddly (and yours seems easy enough for my fat fingers). Looking at the troll: why you left some parts with unprinted side exposed? Or am i misunderstanding how it is built? Have you any image of them already built?
Looking at the troll: why you left some parts with unprinted side exposed? Have you any image of them already built?
yes, the troll has some parts unprinted, the reason for this, is that this was a 3D I created in 2 hours for a game that very afternoon. The final boss was supossed to be a big troll, when finished I liked the way it was so I left it with some parts unprinted. Everybody liked it a lot, so I keept the troll as it is now.
the troll has a 4x4cm square base, an its 8 cm tall.
the bullete is a 6x9cm base, 12 cm long, 6 cm tall. (it also opens its mouth).
the otyugh is a 6x6 cm square base, 6 cm tall (9 cm counting the tentacles)
Each of this 3 monsters were made for final bosses in D&D.
this are some photos of them built, (they are in black and white, the colored ones where a present for the master, for keeping all the group alive xD)

3d seems to be best used on monsters, since they are larger and not as fiddly. 2.5d can be taken down to normal figure sized, like Tommygun's boarding party and the alien creatures in the Chimera Brood. I know that there has to be a better way to do more than 2d, but without the fiddliness. It just escapes me.
I appreciate Everyone's work on expanding paper figures out of 2d, but there will always be more done in 2d than 2.5d or 3d, I'm afraid.
And, yes, I can hardly wait until after work to give these a try.
Great! The figures are excellent! Glad to see one more 3d artist in this hobby!
Just one suggestion. For the arms of the troll, I think you can make it a fold-over (like other 2-d figures) so that the whites would not come out. Edging the figure would also improve it. I think green may be used to edge the figure.
I'd like to build all of them, but unfortunately I cannot download them. The file sharing service hosting your models is not available to my area. OK, found some way to overcome the problem and downloaded the files. Will start building them soon!
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

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.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
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?
