The foreseeable future is me updating my product description webpages. With almost 125 products for sale, this could take a while. I don't expect to produce any new models for the next couple of weeks, but I think the update is much needed.
It's gotta be done sometime, and it's best to do it before it is obviously out of date.
This is a good time to do it. My stuff will be getting into a couple more shops pretty soon, and I'll be revamping my website next month (probably). Getting these whipped into shape now will make all of those things easier. Plus, it'll look nice. Making things that look nice is about 90% of my job.

Speaking of which...... how easy is it to change a GSD file to match a reduced image file? I print out your buildings at 55% for our games and I've just ordered my silhouette. How easy is altering the files going to be
Never had a trouble with it, can set a scale factor in the application for my craft robo. I have made my armies for 15mm games by taking OneMonk 30mm figures and reducing them 50% on print, then sending the gsd files at 50%.

Awesome Unleash the hordes! We are going to play a mighty empires campaign over a whole year, we want 'set piece' towns and cities to fight over. I've got loads of Dave's stuff at 30mm already and was a bit scared of doing it all over at 15mm. (especially the Church).

The real secret that is involved in scaled down cardstock builds - the thickness. As the build is scaled down so is the tolerances for folds and layers. One thing that gets forgotten is the cardstock thickness. For most casual folds standard stock is fine but when building something that has a lot of corners and layers the actual finished result can be not as square as desired.
Grab yourself some lighter stock for the tricker sections of the scaled down builds.

Jim: I actually do too many ranges for just one person, but I'm a bit mental.
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.

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...
