Imho in this period there is a decrease in the production of new paper minis. Although some authors help continuing to think, plan and drawing their figures. Heartfelt thanks to all of them.
For his part Alex evolves his drawing, both for need and for his personal style evolution. Imho these figures are more minimalist, more dynamic, more new but reminiscent of an old school. For me they are impacting at the first sight but very enjoyable, very much, at the same time.
My warmest congratulations to those who doesn't stop and continues to search. Bravo Alex!
the next set will be labeled "Church" ( I hope it is correct translation ). These mutated soldiers have more capacity than ordinary people. Some of them are able to tear to shreds the enemies with his hands, others can run faster than wind, and some other fights in battle as a real whirlwind of steel.
So cool, and inspirational. When I see in-progress work like this, it makes me feel like I might some day be able to make figures of my own. I *really* appreciate it when artists offer a glimpse at the unfinished stuff!
18 gorgeous paper minis. In a new drawing style, which is very reminiscent of an old drawing school. Dark colors, a dirty drawing ( which, however, is intentionally searched and perfectly found ). A minimalist style set that hits perfectly and doesn't allow to take your eyes off, imho. Perfect!
Figures represent mutated zealots/peasants and/or chaos lesser warriors very useful for many different settings, from the post-apocalyptic sci-fi up to dark fantasy.
This is a PWYW product but definitely it deserves a few bucks for sure. For its overall high quality.

To pavaro: I use stiff paper for minis and bases and yes, they are stable enough. Thank you for kind words Brave Adventures! Church of the Apocalypse sets using different technology - it's much easier and faster, so, I can make figures cheaper.
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

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?

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

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...
