phew ok...thats the design concepts for the first fleet done!
I was playing around with various ideas for the fighters but just could not get myself to settle for 2D fighters... after all, if you spent so much time building your fleet do you really want flat fighters?
they small yes.. but not at all unmanageable... the design is VERY basic, but it has to be to build able.
they a bit wonky, there was no design aspect to them except me cutting out smaller and smaller rectangles and then the "engine / wing" parts...
it works so ill do it a bit more official like.
Scale against freighter. You should be able to get 2 or 3 of them into one of those containers underneath the freighter and at least a donzen more in the actual cargo hold... nice surprise for space pirates...
A squad of 5 attacking a frigate:
and last but not least the same squad attacking the battle cruiser:
so what do you guys think are they to big? to small?
They AWSOME arent they? lol there is usually one model or figure in a set I really erm.. "fall in love with" when creating sets... these little ones are by far my favourites of the whole set...
Have you heard of a quilling tool? It's a little paper bending/curling device that helps with really tiny curls-like your engines.
no? but now i have had a look on amazon there is quite a few on there...
there is just one tiny issue, the engines are folded double so that you have an inside and an outside so curling it might be difficult... i got around it by having lots of little scoring lines.. but that does make it a bit wonky...
ill experiment some more though.. thanks for the tip!
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

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

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...
