(BRAND) NEW STANDARD - PAPER MINIS INDUSTRY REAL BREAKTHROUGH!!!
//you can add some more "!" if you want//
Please take a look - proposition for a brand new, BREAKING standard!
(please note there are some more designers involved: figurines and accessories, scenery and props - fantasy, historical and even sci-fi genre!
which is me, permes, and mesper and me and even more...)
Well, as they say: one picture (OK, nowadays... rather selfie? is worth 1000 words (again OK, nowadays it would be miserable 148 Twitter-standard but well...
SO... some self-explaining "modern-style" introduction into Paper-Minis-Industry-Leading-Standard:
Bland / pale, no emotions here
and what's crucial - lacks CRUCIAL info!
Remember this song?
"Who the F* is Alice?"
//you should but just in case you didn't (I doubt...)//
SO back to the topic... what the f... err... WHO is this guy?
=>>>I did REMOVED colours for purpose, you will see later WHY - so please be patient!;
What is he doing here? Kinda what, guarding/watching...
Perhaps WAIT... IS he... WHAT? threatening with fist/punch or what?
...some scary (LOL!) warrior or what???
Nah, kinda suck*&$r or what?
Now, this one is much more... "informative" - NOT ONLY with weapon, better SHIELD and CLOAK
But you can also DISTINGUISH some other parts of equipment (like buckler and tunic, helmet, boots and bracers etc.)
Better, right? real HERO Mrrrr...
Still you just DON'T KNOW what are the equipment / armour quality (STATS), right?
Yep... that might be a problem!
You will be forced to drag your eyes from the table, check-out character cards looking for stats and check your hero -sheet for possible changes!
and IMMERSE FACTOR gone &*#% err... is LOST!!!
just IMAGINE something like this... minis with STATS / POWER INFO INCLUDED!
Even much better, SUCH POWERS WOW!!!
//You know: HIT=weapon (could be one and two-hander, melee or ranged etc.), STAMINA might be fo boots or cloak or torso, INT (inteligence) for helmet, RES (resilience) for shield or some chain-mail or plate armour etc...
But actually you DON'T NEED any fig's details / colours / textures / light effects etc...
These things are JUST for, you know, picking-up your money!!!
Believe me - you don't need such "quasi-immersion" details!
What you really NEED is... HARD FACTS!
This is SERIOUS - it's all about a game - all about contest - all about win-or-lose...
SO FORGET fancy dress, textures, shield emblems etc. bull$#..
ALL you NEED is... no, not love (in this case ) but STATS!!!
(Love Is ALL You Need...)
So here is just a very simplistic idea illustration / sample:
Wait... kinda ghostly one or sometin'
But WAIT for a while...
Some more info about your (or your encounter!!!) would be valuable...
So OK, please find some more sample heroes following!
First one is creature of LIGHT - a GOOD one / enlightened (you probably know more of these appropriate descriptions/words:) - kinda Paladin or HERO hero;)))
Nature / Forest, Elven or some... Eco (LOL:) hero
Hushhh.... there is a LOT of POWER and MAGIC here...
YES! I can smell BLOOD and RAGE... GRROWWWGR!!!
So, as you can clearly see, there is NO NEED for detailed artwork - NO MORE!
(And, which should be obvious, there is no sense for fig's B-SIDE - except perhaps for some technical issues like for broad outline, character-state colour and perhaps some repeated stats numbers?)
K, Ima pretty sure that after some incomprehension (OK, copied this looong word from some net vocabulary - even if not exactly suitable but looks and sounds funny;) you will just love these new ideas!
Please do not let me know what you think all about this!
THIS IS SIMPLE DA FUTURE FOR PAPER MINIS!
SO NO MORE B-SIDE DEMANDS, NO MORE DETAIL AND COLOURS!!!
FORGET YOUR PRINTER OR PAPER OT TONER/INK RESTRAINTS - NEW PAPER MINIS ERA IS COMING - SIMPLE AND PLAIN "INFO-MINIS"!!!
... OMG whatta relief for designers and (of course!) users?
WE (ME and MESPER and PERMES as artists and publishers) DO IT FOR YOUR GAMING EXPERIENCE - ALL WE DO WE DO IT YOU!
//vide: Bryan Adams and Robin Hood - Everything I do I do It For You... //
More ASTOUNDING samples SOON
No MORE unneeded / boring B-sides, no more silly, distracting details and eye-fulling colours - JUST PLAIN STATS!
REAL BREAKTHROUGH IN PAPER MINIS!!!
