Hi, I design world of fantasy under voiced title "Book of races". Long time I upgrade my work. This time I have question to you about chainmail. I would like to draw the agreed on outline only. What do you have tips and advice? On attachment my work in progress.
I think they both could be effective. I worry about tons of detail for a 28mm figure - when scaled down and printed on an inkjet printer, the 2nd chainmail effect (the one on the right) might get muddy and dark, whereas the one on the left might look just fine. It would be interesting to see some test prints!

Now I can see everything! mproteau is probably right about the test printing and I bet a middle ground solution will be best. I was thinking about onemonk figures and sanity studios but I think your style is closest to okumarts. Maybe you could take a look at some of mail and see if you can adapt it to suit you.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
Actually, I think both styles look good, I did a test print, with a scaled photograph of some actual Chain mail as comparison.. This was taken at about a two and a half foot distance from the figures, so this is pretty close to what you would see with them on a tabletop.

pavaro, I fixed the image link, so now people should be able to see the picture in the post..... Photobucket has been bothering me, they recently made some changes, including limiting upload size to 1024x768, where before I could upload full size pictures ( and with my camera I can get pictures up to 6000x4000 pixels).. I might need to search for a different picture hosting site.
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)

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.
