Today the fifth "Steel Warriors - Battle for Empire" ( 5 years edition ) promotional free set were published.
This set contains six papers minus taken from the next "first" album ( its publication is expected between December and January and it will contain 64 paper minis. 32 basic infantry Steel Warriors Motorized Infantry, 32 basic infantry former emperial Keno infantry squad, 8 vehicles and paper minis crews. probably several artworks, perhaps stories and other material ... ) and six promo paper minis fron the second album ... Two Steel Warriors' androids and four ex imperial shock troops.
all figures are unique, as already said.
Finally, bayonets are back in the paper trenches of near ( or very far ) future.
In the dead microscale edition infantry is the size of 18 mm. Now the size of the infantry is 25 mm. The old 3D technic for new minis are too small. unfortunately
From 2007 to 2009 infantry was 25 mm. In 2010, I reduced the infantry size by 30% (the height of the soldiers was 18 mm). This will fit the more infantry and vehicles on the sheets. So is it possible to make models of houses. On a small table can fit the whole area of the city. But the details is also very much reduced. Soldiers are like little cockroaches. They become difficult to distinguish. I stopped doing microscale miniatures - back to the good old 25 mm
Old 3D-models from the Microscale Edition 2010 (dead set)
Now the first Tomoko's album ( a kind of huge set with arts, illustrations, setting, background, history .... ) completion is forthcoming. After the first two basic infantry sets ( 32 unique figures each ) there are eight 3D vehicles.
The WIPs are above, and the new ones are here:
To celebrate the holiday just passed and the approach of this personal goal, Tomoko shares with us a new 3D vehicle model ( the second free 3D vehicle model that he offers ), the imperial military car "Aktas" doomsday edition, in promo format.
After almost two years it seems that my friend Dima is back in "business".
Paper minis are a great real "passion". Can't stay without them, in the end.
And Tomoko is a very great paper minis' author, imho. So he opened a new personal page on VK ( I call it Russian facebook, I can not explain it better ): Tomoko's Paper Miniatures
Even in this case, the page is in Russian language but on the right of them some information are in English. "Documents" is the magic word. there are four files ( vk.com/docs?oid=-92217457 ). Three in pdf format ( 65 MB, 17 MB and 18 MB ) with his new paper minis and one zipped ( 170 MB with all his old works ).
The old files are beautiful and good but the new ones are amazing ( it's not enough ). Later I'll try to post some images.
OK. The following are paper minis' images ( bad pics, I'm sorry ) that you can find in the three pdf files. There are also several crew paper minis and vehicles ( these are gorgeous too, imho ). And this is just the beginning of his new project.
After this I will not bother you more. Now you have everything you need for deciding and evaluate.

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.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
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
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
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?
