And I'm reading ( today ), in italian, the third book, "Krew elfów" ( "Il Sangue degli Elfi" ) and I have already read the previous two, "Ostatnie życzenie" and "Miecz przeznaczenia" ( "Il Guardiano degli Innocenti" and "La Spada del Destino" ). These are short stories.
Splendid idea - dedicated assasins - silver-headed, highly trained and powered by elemental-magic natural born killers
LOL... well give me some more detailed info on the assasin and who knows what can happen between now and the weekend ;-)
aaaaannnd to go back on topic... im abandoning this guy, my biggest problem is that what I envisioned was a lot different from what came out of my pen. I saw him as dropping grenades from up high... but ow he looks like a gimp footed constipated floating man that took an arrow to the knee whilst holding a Faberge egg... I achieved what i wanted with the other 6 figs... so im happy, maybe ill add the grenade as a configurable weapon...
Okkk... so i took a break from creating various bloody versions of the rocket troopers holding guns for a quick dip into silver haired assassins... sigh.. i still have a lot to learn about the back of heals...

I am not much of an artist, but I seem to have a knack for doing backs, maybe because I don't sweat the details too much. Anyway I would suggest that this fig shouldn't be up on his toes with both feet. I would let the left foot be planted firmly on the ground. Then the right foot you could show less of the sole near the toe and more of the side of the boot. Jim always suggested having figures flat footed on the ground and I sure felt he knew what he was talking about when I did all those backs for Hoard 92.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
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
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?

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...
