Glad people like these. I really like how the "Monster" came out.
Yes Dave Okum, you can post them on Drop Box and provide a link. I've never had a problem with 4-Share, but all I ever do is post Imperfect People there (and it took me long enough to figure out how to do that).
Parduz, thanks is enough. I had you in mind when I did these. Still, I intend for an adventure when the characters arrive in a small village and all they find is children living there. Perhaps I'll have to make lots of corn stalks from the old One Monk Halloween download.

Or a wicked Ratcatcher of Hameln brought them to an abandoned town of Koppelberg (after a plague perhaps). And now he sits somewhere in the chamber beneath the town, playing an inaudible tune for his children court to play to.
Having been lurking around this Forum for a while, this was the set that finally persuaded me to take the plunge and join, as much as anything to show support and huge appreciation not just for these youngsters, but all the many Imperfect sets I've been happily downloading of late. It all started because I wanted some figures whose style matched that of the Inked Adventures dungeon (etc.) tiles and furniture. And the rest, as they (should) say is pure profits for the printer companies...
The Child Adventurers especially took me back nearly twenty years to an "Ars Magica" RPG campaign based in the Welsh Marches. For those unfamiliar, "Ars Magica" sets your group of characters up with their own castle-like home/small village, called a Covenant, in a pseudo-medieval Europe, where magic works (naturally), and all kinds of weird things can happen. Well, they did for us! In between a couple of quite dark and difficult stories (= scenarios), we fitted in one just for the Covenant's children, who were being guided/manipulated by the local Faeries along the way, all quite light-heartedly. These figures would have been perfect for that adventure! And of course, being a children's tale, it all ended happily.
As regards 4Shared, I have had a couple of odd experiences with it, when downloading Dryw's figures and one or two other items posted there from elsewhere on this Forum. My antivirus software has taken offence at it a couple of times - I think because I've clicked on the wrong "download" link - for some reason the "right" link is a small ordinary typeface word, but the many wrong 'uns tend to be huge "click here" buttons, scattered liberally across the page. Also, when downloading one of the sets, there were some singularly inappropriate pornographic images displayed among the "related links" bit of the page. Now I'm an adult and not easily offended, but I'd be a bit wary about letting youngsters loose on such pages - and I'd guess Dryw's figurines will appeal to folks of all ages with a liking for cardboard minis.
Can't see this will put me off downloading Dryw's future sets from 4Shared though!

Really a charming set. Perfect for the moment when a great curse changes all of the hearty heroes into children and they have to convince the towne guards that trouble is afoot. The flour sack puppet monster is a great bonus!
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...
