The sound of Dwarven pick axes working the mine, Dwarven revellers drinking ale, Dwarven merchants and tinkers in the market... Now here, Background Dwarves.
This set includes 8 Dwarven miners, 8 Dwarven drinkers, a couple of Dwarven Tinkers, a pair of Dwarven Merchants, and a number of Dwarven maidens.
Dwarven Background NPCs:
I know, I haven't posted much in the past few months, but now I have a new light board and since my parts of campaign are taking place in the Dwarven settlement of Black Shadow Mountain I needed a bunch of Dwarves. Warriors are easy, many artists have put out great Dwarven soldiers (special thanks to Sanity Studios), but I needed background characters to fill up the scene. I don't know if anyone esle needs them, but here they are, 2 pages of Dwarven Background Characters, 24 in all. Use them as you will.
I am also a big fan of the imperfect world. I have assembled nearly every minature you made at least once. (maybe I can post photos sometime) They are regularly on mission. Eg. last friday a friend of mine deployed some imperfect arabian civilist women and several men of the imperfect night watch for our rpg combat. So all I can say is: many thanks for sharing your dwarfs and your other minis with us. They greatly enhance our roleplaying game.

I don't know when that happened, Parduz. It was a surprise to me yesterday when I checked the link to make sure it worked and it came up with that message. I logged in and was able to download them, but it was the first time it ever asked me to as well.
These figures may be called "Imperfect Background Dwarves," but that is HARDLY the case! 24 figures, in multiple colors, and poses. The backs lined up perfectly, and they were very easy to cut out. No little pits or nooks that are hard to cut out or trim with my Sharpie. These are truly great figures.
I think you might want to consider going commercial. I have paid money for some sets that weren't done as nice as these.
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...

Actually, in my campaign it is the other way around. Dwarven males outnumber Dwarven females by four to one, making the females in high demand and something to be protected and guarded (and the reason why Dwarven men collect treasure since in order to marry, they have to show wealth and position since so many males compete over so few females). As such, on the rare occasion Dwarven women are out in public where other races might intermingle, the Dwarven women wear false beards and pass themselves off as Dwarven men. This led to the rumors among other races that Dwarven women have beards, something the Dwarves all get a good laugh about.
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?
Feb 26, 2019 12:24:18 GMT -9
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...
