Whiplash Trigger Western miniatures is a commercial release is coming in the next day or two. They are going to be used for an upcoming game I'm running so I thought I'd release them as my first commercial paper minis.

Just got 'em! Good stuff. I'm not planning on running a western campaign, but I wanted to play around with a project based on westerns. I just happened to be watching Hopalong Cassidy when I came across these. It'd be cool if you could do some mounted cowboy characters. Ain't no Hopolong Cassidy show that's complete without the big horse chase at the end!
I'm thinking I may put together a handful of tiny "electronic" pieces (like computers, communicators, power cells, etc.) or even some little gun augmentations to turn their pistols into slightly more future-y weapons, stuff that can be pasted onto their belts, holsters, etc., for space coboy/Serenity use.
Parduz, point taken with the arms. If it is an issue, simply score the gun arm at the shoulder and have the weapon point forward. Set Two: Horsemen is well on the way with two mounted characters pencilled and inked as of tonight. The set will have five individual characters, a mounted version and an unmounted version. Set Three: Characters is in development and will have a variety of Western archetypes from Lawmen, Grifters, Gamblers, Padres and Bounty Hunters. I think each Archetype will eventually get a set of 10.
Oh, if you could add me to the list on the main website, that'd be sweet. I will definitely return the favour. Tommygun, thanks for the kind words. Set Two should be out for Wednesday. I'll put up a preview Monday.
Response has been great! I am kicking in to full gear and will have the second Western set out for June 1st. Then there will be a Retro/Pulp Sci Fi release (2 actually). After that I will have a few more Western mini sets out in June along with a modern line release. This will be a busy summer!
Awesome idea, okumarts. Characters in different gaming situations. You could expand on that. The hat holding guy on the horse is funny. And I admire your overall hardcore design. You are a purist. My eyes stick to the dust clouds under the hooves ... .
Thanks Paladin! Set Two is currently being test built tonight and I should iron out some issues if needed. If I can stay up I'll post the product tonight. IF not I will get it out for Thursday. I added Two Cacti to the set. I will be releasing a "scenics" set later on and I was working on a cactus.
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...

okumarts: Vermin King... Mind Blown!
