I am going to suggest Big Trouble in Little China! (What can I say, it is one of my guilty pleasure movies): First installment, Lo Pan! I am still in the process of shading and tweaking but he came together well enough that I thought I would show him and ask for input.
If I can finish him early who should I do next? Egg Shen, The Three Storms (basket headed guys), or Jack Burton?
So I have a couple of questions for those interested... How tall (in scale) should Lo-pan be given that he is a "10 foot tall road block" and how much lightning is too much to put on the model of Lightning?
Test builds of Lo pan at a few different sizes and my early attempts at a lightning effect on Lightning:

I like Storm without the pillar of lightning beside him. As for Lo-pan, I think "10' tall" is Jack Burton exaggerating. Even if he is especially tall (SO temped to put in the DVD . . . No, things to do today) he never appears "large" I mean his shoulders don't get wide in proportion to his height. I would maybe stretch him below the waist a bit but mostly I would leave him on the normal side.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

Well, I was supposed to go winter cabin camping with the cub scouts this weekend but since I am fighting some bug I am on the couch instead. The cub's loss (at least I like to think) is VK's gain. I'm not sure if there might be copyright issues putting this in the hoard, but thought I would post it here first anyway.

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: Found the video, uhm, I don't speak German but I think he likes them.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.

shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
