About a third of the way through the cut-and-fold lines now. I've printed out what I've done so far and plan to start assembling it today. What I have created are the main walls, interior reinforcers, and the weird long dormer. Still needs a roof, the foyer, chimneys, roof dormers, stairs, and the balcony (might try a big 3" x 2" deck if the proportions look all right).
Created the chimney, foyer and roof dormer pieces. Still need a foyer chimney, main roof, stairs and balcony/deck. Looks like the overall page count and build time/complexity will be similar to the Inventor's House -- a weekend project.

I really like the direction you are going with these projects. Unusual buildings that bring character to the table.
In my old model railroading days, the buildings I added to the layout had character. I didn't have a huge set-up, but everyone who saw it loved it. As you look around there was so much to see.
These new buildings really do that. Not to say that your older stuff doesn't have character, but I can think of a few that are more like the canvas of a painting, whereas others are the subjects of the painting.
I thought I was going to take a break from this model to work on other stuff, but I came right back to it. I've added three roof textures, and have begun adding the lower wall textures. There's a lot to do, but progress is being made.
Textures are finished and I'm sending this one out to my volunteers for final quality testing and assembled color models. I'll also try to convince NoRemorse to set up the GSDs.
While all that's going on, I can create the animated GIF showing the textures cycling through, and write up the product description. I can get that done in the next few hours, leaving me several days to work on other projects until the Townhouse photos and GSDs start coming back.
I'll probably work on the Archer bomber for Solid State War some more, and maybe get back to the 28mm-30mm Gallows set.
The easiest way would be 10-15% on each release but have them sent directly, guaranteed sales, but no monthly sub. fee. 3 Month minimum sub, automatically deducted from Paypal/ Credit card. Renew every three months, with automatic renewal.
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...
