So it seems that working on the skiff model inspired me to spend more time with papercraft. There are lots of "box models" to be found on the internet -- not sure about the proper name but I am referring to the human figures built with boxes, usually with exagerated heads. Anyway, today I made a few figures for a village militia based on this technique, for 15mm scale. Here is a picture of the test build:
Following the build, I have already changed the "lid" of the head to close on the figure's back, so that if something goes wrong (i.e. the figure with the large black marker line to cover the mistake) it does not become so apparent.
I intend to add a few more options, for axes, maces and dual-wielding, and also make an invading force of orcs or something. The idea is to play Swordplay 3.1 with them. When everything is completed, I will post the files here.
VK these are excellent! I guess I missed that thread when you posted about those minis. It is interesting to see that I used a different solution for the format of the figures. Although in the end, his idea for the legs allows for more variety...
I'd be interested in hearing your opinion on his rule set, too
I have finished reading the rules, still need to try a playtest (maybe in RPTools) but they seem interesting. There are a few points that need clarification (is the potion limit 1 per hero per round or 1 per round in total? Does the "critical" rule apply to melee and ranged or only to ranged?) but none that prevents play. I like the provided "A. I. behavior" given to monsters so that solo play is possible. The different features of each weapon type are also nice. For a first solo playtest I would try to use an Orc Thief armed with a spear and a Human Ranger with a crossbow...
Vermin King: For Papercuts this year, I am just going to use things created since last Papercuts. Bessie for the model and Onager Longhauler for the kitbash. I was going to build 10 Downing St for a Bessie backdrop, but that ain't happening

Vermin King: I've decided I need to stop trying to get stuff back that I lost and get back to working on new stuff. Until work stuff gets caught up, I need to fight the rebuilding aspect.

Vermin King: My Doctor Who stuff is all gone... and couldn't get onto the company database for 4 1/2 hours today. Life has got to get better

Vermin King: It's been such a nightmare, I haven't been to OBS or your site yet. I just know they are gone

bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: Oo, oo! I just saw the Olli Bizer models loading!

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss

wyvern: VK: Now you also have the "joy" of the painfully slow shutdown and reboot every time (at least once a month) that Windows is made "better" by yet more unwanted clutter being downloaded to your system, plus a scatter of useless "desktop.ini" files.

Vermin King: After 3 1/2 hours of updating, I got this xxxxxxxx Win10 computer runnable. I'm really going to miss the ease of Win 7. Amazing all the stuff I did here that is just gone ... except for what I posted
