Thanks Vermin King for posting our recent paper models. And thanks to all of you who have so kindly visited our site.
Even if I didn't show off so often, I still keep an eye on the forum, guys. We've been madly busy in the last month preparing lots of new series and models for the summer.
We are actually out from the city, Madrid, back in my husband's hometown, Ourense, for some days only partially off, as we keep on posting regularly in our blog. We are also collecting new material for further new challenging and exciting war games and mediaeval papermodels that we hope you will be enjoying in the following weeks.
Here some views of our latest models already uploaded:
Thanks for your support and comments :-) We hope you're enjoying a fabulous summertime :-)
But most important, keep in the loop during the coming weeks as we will be starting a series of forts based on those built in Cuba by the Spanish army by the end of the XIXth century, with some History articles about that period, also regarding the Spanish-American War.

Hope you like our new models and enjoy with them. Please share your photos with us if you ever build any of them!
I frankly hope I have some minutes to come into the forum for actual greetings during these days, but in case I can't, we wouldn't like to miss the chance now to wish you all a fabulous Christmas time and the best for the new year, full of paper stuff :-)

Thanks for letting us know about some of the upcoming models
Have you considered doing the old bridge in Ourense or any more of the chapels? I'm assuming the cathedral is too complex of a project. Would there be enough archeological information to do any of the Roman facilities in Gallicia?
We'd love to do the Cathedral but, as you say, this is quite complex, some of the faces of the buildings are difficult to take pictures of. Anyway this is something we always have in mind.
Also the Roman bridge is among our projects for the next future, if not a completely accurate reproduction, a very similar bridge. As per the other Roman settings in Galicia, I'm afraid they are all "too ruined", you can find the remains of many of the so-called "castros", these are merely the basement stones of the buildings. Galicia's climate is very wet and rainy so green grows quickly all over any abandoned place and we are afraid too many of the spots were really abandoned for years, even if today there's a little bit more interest in preserving such treasures. As a curiosity, and to give you an idea, not too far from Ourense, there's a castro that, depending on the season of the year and the level of the dam, remains under water.
Among the best preserved Roman monuments in Galicia, the walls of Lugo are those which would well make the trip worthwile.
We'll keep in mind your suggestions and make as many pictures of that kind any time we will be in Galicia. We will not forget about more chapels :-)
Many thanks colonelshofer!! It's a lot of work for just the two of us (my husband and me) to build up all those models and keep the blog updated. We sometimes feel a little dissapointed thinking there's no one "behind" interested on downloading and building up the papermodels. These comments are very encouraging and help us not to give up! :-)
Among my projects for the blog in the coming months is to build up the list you mentioned, I am aware that we have now too many models and it is not always easy to review them all in a fast and efficient way. But, as I was telling you, it is just the both of us to do everthing and we have very limited time.
In the meantime, for a review on the published models, we recommend you to use the labels list, if you click any scale, you will get all posts ordered. I know this is not a very fast track but we will strive to have a list ASAP.
Yes, among our projects is another university building. Even all windows were replaced in the University area, this building I refer to is keeping the original window structure, so I hope you will like it better.
Unfortunately, I cannot tell you an estimate date on which this could be published, we have very little time for the many projects we always have in mind :-( I will put it at the beginning of my list!
Hi! Firstly, we understand arquitecture as part of the story of the people who built, lived or use the buildings that inspire our models and we have always struggled to bring in the history related together with the papermodels we publish.
Additionally, we have always thought about Cuba war as one of the many interesting events in our history, worthy to be developed and shared with all wargamers and military modellers. We thought that those are the kind of buildings preferred by them.
Finally, the fact that my grandmother's grandfather was a General commanding the island at that time might have also helped making the decision on building these models:-)
oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

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.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
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"
Feb 26, 2019 20:44:53 GMT -9
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
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
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?
Feb 26, 2019 12:24:18 GMT -9
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
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
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...
