I'm back to work on models after a long break. One of the first requests I ever got was for military field tents, and for whatever reason that's what I've decided to set up for my next models. (I probably shouldn't post this without pictures, and I'll get some up later today.)
I'm going to release 2 different sets.
The Field Tents set will contain pup tents, small tents (about 2"x2" footprint) and medium-sized tents (3"x4") for the grunts. The medium-sized tent will also work as a medical tent.
The Command Tents set will contain a tent with a 4"x6" footprint. This one will give you the option of exterior-only or an accessible interior, with a lift-off roof, 2D floor piece insert (which can also be used on its own!), and a few pieces of 3D furniture.
For both of these sets, they will be multi-layered PDFs with lots of color options and a few extras, and I'll release the PSD files for kitbashing.
And these will probably come with the option to be fold-flat models, so they'll be easy to store.
The Field Tents should be ready before the end of the year, and the Command Tents should be coming along a few days after that.
I'm getting near to completing the first set of Field Tents, which will contain the three smaller sizes of tents (not the Command Tent, which is big enough to be on its own and will be released later).
I've finished the multi-layered PDFs, and in the next couple of hours I'll set up the single-layered PDFs for easy printing.
Kinda nice to be doing this again. It's been a long time!
Great to see you back at it Dave! Sometimes you just need to recharge those batteries. This looks excellent! I can see me using it in everything from ww2 games to modern horror or military and even sci fi games.
Buh. I haven't been able to get the store-flat versions to work well, so I'm just abandoning that option. That means I can move straight on to completing this set for release. Expect to see the first set of Field Tents sometime in the next 24 hours.
cowboyleland: Putting on my pedantic hat: some of you are mis-using the term "begs the question." Some day I will make myself a paper pedantic hat.

Vermin King: I wouldn't hold my breath. He used to be very active on a French forum, so I asked him if he was going to be back there. no response yet

squirmydad: Crap. I hope he's able to recover and republish his work.

Vermin King: I sent Mauther an email. My guess is that it will be inaccessible while he is migrating things over to Blogger

wyvern: Today though, the Papermau blog is no longer accessible unless you have an invitation (and of course you can't get one unless you visit the blog, Catch 22). Anyone got any better news about it?

wyvern: I know Papermau's blog has been having problems because of virus infections lately - it's fired-up my antivirus system every time I've visited there for some weeks, though he did write and say the problem was resolved a while back (it wasn't).

Vermin King: I suppose it could have been worse. She could boost someone up in a positive uplifting supportive manner...

Vermin King: Okay ... double negatives are bad, but how about triple saying the same thing. I just heard someone on TV saying, 'I found we really boosted each other up in an uplifting supportive manner'. And that was probably meaningful to her. duh

Vermin King: Back in my younger days, I tried to get 'Trick or Drink' running. We would go door to door in costume with our Halloween-themed rocks glasses in hand.

shep: On the other hand, Halloween is not that big for kids, here in Germany, anyways. It's more an excuse for teens and young adults to dress up and have a party... and for the latter ones to get drunk beyond speaking their native tongue...

shep: "A ninja, a mage, a knight, and a fish enter a tavern..." Wait this is no joke??!? Great costumes! The kids in my neighborhood were, as always, either too shy or too lazy to climb up into the third floor (40 steps, man, 40 steps!)...
