Just tell me when and how much and I'll had over the money. I especially like the the light grey and green one. It looks to be more printer friendly too if you need to print out a lot of them. Just a suggestion; anything with a hex pattern seems to be popular in SciFi right now. A floor tile with 1/4 inch hexs and contrasting colors and maybe with a pattern to it?
There are lots of color combinations possible with these. There are 4 base colors, 4 mid colors, and 4 accent colors. Should be able to create something suitable for Star Trek, Star Wars, 40K, Battletech, Infinity and lots of other settings.
Yeah, that quarter-circle tile is intended to be made into a full circle landing pad.
There won't be any 3D elements to this kit, but I'm thinking about fuel stations, walls and other stuff like that for later sets.
This kit will consist of 3 tiles, multi-layered, $1.95. The tiles are all fairly "busy" with lots of panels and stuff, so these tiles will work best as utility areas, rather than open walkways or paths (I'll save those for another tile set).
Looks like there will be 30 to 40 layers for each PDF page, and the PSD version will give you more control over the weathering layers and shading, since I'm throwing those all into the Overlay folder to make more room.
Right now I'm working with these base colors:
Gray metal (good for Star Trek, Battletech, lots of others) Gunmetal blue (good for 40K, military, gritty, dark) Earth (sandy tone, good for Star Wars or other lived-in settings) White metal (good for Robotech or other shiny-mech stuff)
There are also 4 "mid" colors that let you mix-and-match with the bases to some extent. There are about 6 "accent" colors that give you a splash of color on top of your other choices.
There are some really stunning combinations possible, and it's pretty easy to add more of them at this stage. Are there certain color combinations you'd like included?
There are some layers of stains that should help give that "lived in" look. There are about 50 layers for each tile, and a total of 9 layers of weathering, so hopefully they will have enough of that roughed-up look.
But I didn't want to go too dirty, since the overall design is somewhat clean, like a plastic toy -- that's a good way to describe it. While designing this set I've had in mind Robotech Veritech fighters, crossed with Infinity's futuristic look, crossed with the Star Trek Enterprise skin, crossed with the Sulaco from Aliens, and a big dose of Star Wars space ship skins.
There is always room for a separate tile set with a steampunk/40K/submarine look, too.
Anyway, this set is nearly ready for release. I've created the multi-layered PDFs and now I'm working on the advert graphics and other pre-launch chores.
This paper terrain kit is easy to assemble, requiring just cardstock paper sheets to print on (110 lb. or 199gsm recommended), hobby knife, paper glue, metal ruler and cutting mat. Optional textured sidings are provided for mounting on foamcore.
These tiles are designed at the popular 28mm-30mm gaming scale (1 inch equals 5 feet), and can be shrunk down to 15mm, 20mm or 25mm scales by simply adjusting the print size percentage on your printer. Tips and advice for altering the scale are included with this kit.
This set features 3 multi-layered PDFs that offer a variety of customization options. The texture layers can be mixed and combined in various ways, giving you control over the appearance of your tiles before you print them. This means you can use each tile PDF over and over, choosing a different look every time.
You get all of these texture options:
• Variety of symbols and markings • Panelization options • Lots of weathering options • Accent colors (gray, gunmetal, brown, red, white) • Mid colors (gray, gunmetal, earth, white) • Base colors (gray, gunmetal, earth, white) • And more!
You'll need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 or later in order to use these files.
This kit features 3 types of spaceport ground tiles:
• Landing Pad: Quarter-circle that can be printed four times to make a full circle • Storage Bay: Featuring a large cargo door in the center • General Purpose: With lots of panels and a workers' accessway
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

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.
