Single 25mm hexes and double hex (25x50mm) bases with a starfield texture printed on them has been added to the Bases page. The full sheet overlay that I built for the bases is also available on the left side of the page.

Nice. I like the inclusion of space. I may end up using that Texture sheet sometime. My friend and I keep planning on buying some Firestorm Armada fleets, but neither one of us ever manages to scrape the funds together. Real miniatures are fricken expensive! I do still have that 2.5D paper fleet that I pretended I was going to design. Lost my files, but I still have some of my prototypes. Also, I've gotten a bit more comfortable with GIMP, so the idea of texturing is less scary now. hmmm...

I have them on a flash drive I think. I also have the awesome Black Sun Wars set rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/104114/Black-Sun-Wars-RPG-Starship-Starter-set. Sadly the rules and additional sets haven't ever materialized. I really liked my semi-modular quick building idea though, but I guess Its not worth taking time off other things to work on it right now. I never finish what I start anyway.

I downloaded them earlier this month actually. I found the official version, and a community version or something. Haven't gotten around to reading them yet. I have the Firestorm Armada rulebook. I got the 2 player starter set, and played some games with my friend. Its a dice-fest, but I like to roll dice. The movement system doesn't do a very good job of making me feel like its in space, but I do like how it can be tricky to get where you want sometimes. It might just be me sucking, but I have accidently gone into asteroid fields more than once To be fair, I was playing the team that uses rail guns that only fire straight ahead. Its hard to line up a shot, and not crash into stuff. I also have 2HW's 5150: Star Navy. I mostly got that one for solo play, but have yet to try it.
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

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.

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"

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?
