I am relatively new to the Hobbie, I once ambiciously bought some WWG stuff and never did anything with it(titan). Now I came back and found my way here over D. Okums Awsome paper minis. I am preparing for some new sci-fi Rpg sessions.
After getting reinterested by the Ebbleawesomeness, I built the Landing platform, the Utility shuttle and now...the prowler.
BOY THOSE WHEELS! I have some problems with aligning them and getting them look good. (By the way I have to approve my skills anyway).
Any tips on those? For generell tips in clean glueing and such I will search my way through the forum before asking.

On aligning wheels, I play around with putting a support under the model, first, then shim it to the appropriate height. Then when I glue the wheels on, they are all level. I always put my glue on a piece of scrap and apply with a toothpick. I hit my models lightly with Krylon Clear before I score or cut. This helps protect the textures, but when I get glue in the wrong place, it is easier to clean up without damaging the model.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
And edge before assembly. For things like wheels, barrel tops etc, I like to color in the inside face (at least around the edges) some reasonable color to make it a *little* less obvious when it doesn't come out like a perfect circle...
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
