Okay I think I have the time to cut them today. This is going to be difficult for me as I'm using 130 gsm matt photopaper. I rarely make my paper models with anything under 200 gsm because I prefer the strength. However I just can not find a photo quality card that thick so all the images just come out dull and really really dark. So for this build I'm sacrificing extra strength to beauty.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the Squadron Nose and Tail Art, as well as your remodel of the Percheron with the extra equipment options. Not to mention the Apsara and all the other Hangar Bay goodies.
Now to find my key to my Craft Robo so I can change the blade setting.
This 130 gsm is great for floor tiles that are going to be backed but its not that great for models. I don't know how you guys use this stuff!
Damn damn damn. The cutfiles just are not working. They are off every time. Well I'm pretty irate, I ripped up the batch and I'm going to take a day or two off. No idea why it's not working. I've never had a problem before.

Okay not as pretty but I've printed it off on the thicker 220 gsm paper (I've found some 220 photo matt paper going to have to order it) and after reprinting the first page three times now I've gotten them to accurately cut. I'm 99% sure it's user error. Now to edge.

Nice job! I've often thought about doing action figure scaled versions of some of the models so I could put more detail on the smaller parts. I'd have preferred to design the ordnance to be more visually interesting than a bunch of boxes with holes painted on them, but if I had to roll little missiles and stuff at that size I'd probably lose the will to live halfway through the first load.
Rolling isn't the worst part, the fins and pointy noses and the attachment points are worse. I've tried it with models of modern jets a few times, and quit.
At least you make models in sizes big enough to hold - I have (unassembled) and have seen pictures of assembled 1/700 warships... folks make them! Even the little bits, like lifeboats. From many tiny tiny pieces. Big Props to them, but I have trouble seeing the parts, let alone handling or cutting them out...
squirmydad: Cool, thanks!

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...

Parduz: So, as always, i'm slow and silent but i'm trying to do that job

Parduz: Let me "shout" here that i'm not ignoring the minis database cataloguing job, but got a bit sidetracked by real life and the Legions of Steel 2ed beta testing. I also thought to reply to a couple of PMs but did'nt hit the "Send" button. Anyway, i'll do it!
