Oh yes, I really love Okumarts figures. I suppose they won't be to everyone taste, because they are a little "cartoonish". But it is the way I like figures. I have already used some of them in my games.
The set is made from worldworks caves. They are less red and more brownish than in the picture. The bases were the first I made this way, they are made from a foamcore sheet upon which I have glued the parts that were cut from my battlemat (I needed 4'X6' and the battlemat was much larger). It was a few years ago and I am afraid I don't know anymore where I did order it.
The logo looks a little cool (in terms of color) and static in spite of the italics. You might want to punch it up with the tag line, "IN SPACE!", in a zippy font and a warm color like orange or yellow.
Just an onservation. I know whatever you do, it's gonna look good!
Have fun! Steve

Space Amazons are on the way, just need to make them more... fetching. They ended up looking way too plain for my tastes. I wanted to give them a bit more character. Just working on the bonus material for the Retro Space set 4 tonight. Not long now. Previews in 24 hours!
Cosmic Patrol is a roleplaying game set in a retro future based on the Golden Age of science fiction. If you’ve ever seen a cover from a classic 1930s-1960s sci-fi pulp magazine, you’ve got the idea. You and your friends form the crew of a Cosmic Patrol rocketship and blast off for action and adventure in the wild galaxy.
In Cosmic Patrol, players take the role of Patrolmen—the first and last line of defense for humans in a dangerous galaxy. Patrolmen explore, discover and defend the interests of humans wherever they go. With an atomic ray gun at their hip, they brave the unknown on a regular basis.
Cosmic Patrol Core Rulebook Cosmic Patrol is a rules-light role-playing game by Catalyst Game Labs that is all about creating a story. Using Cues as building blocks, you will construct a plot and narrate your Patrolman’s way through the millions of threats the cosmos has to offer. Your adventure will be unique to you and your group, and you’re encouraged to write those adventures up in true pulp style, for all the world to enjoy.
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...
