To respond to Eddnic's Sept 27 post re: the Barghast it is the first figure I ever coloured. I hadn't discovered GIMP yet and I'd started playing around with 2.5d paper figs. I wanted to see what one would look like coloured so I used watercolours and felt tip pen. Since I scanned him in I have done some work, (like flipping to make the front) but the watercolour and felt tip are still plain to see.
I want to modify the base to have it fold together like the ratman I just posted over at the "beastman and mutant" thread
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
I'm no Eddnic, but I did a little rescale and recolour on a first draft of a barghast. I'd like to go back and improve it some more, but I thought I'd post it in case you need a werewolf before I finnish the upgrades.
Hi, Cowboyland. Thanks for this! How can I can get a pdf? I can definitely put this to good use. I´d love to see the upgraded version as well.

Thanks for the figures! It is mind-blowing how you do this stuff! I downloaded the lizardman awhile back, and will make him soon! The only thing I didn't like is how you made the legs completely from the side view. I'll try to make isometric legs in my next figures and see how that turns out.
RIP Dan Wheldon, a great young Indy Car driver who died this afternoon after a fiery crash an the 11th lap of the final race. I follow NASCAR and Indy Car a little, and I would love to show you some of my racing board games. He will be missed.

I didn't have as much luck curling them to make tubes, though I did try that.
What I did was in the bulkier parts of the legs, arms and torsos, I would cut scrap paper a little narrower than the parts and sandwich that between the front and back halves of those parts. Just to thicken them up a bit.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.

shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
