I think I want to add some optional part to make the "legs" of the long bridge sturdier. They are just 2D now and though they seem to work with thicker cardboard an optional 3D addition would be even better!
Gotta ask so maybe I can learn something... the reg marks I see there are quite large. Any reason for that? It's kinda dangerous to have stuff inside the reg mark area "bounding square" and so the larger the reg mark, the larger the restricted area is. Would it give you more page space to have smaller reg marks (I tend to use .375/.035 as the size/thickness values).
I've been using the same settings for years, and it's been a fine balance of size and detectability (sp?). If the marks are read, then I guess there's no "wrong" But, if I didn't ask, I might have been missing some nugget of well earned wisdom!
Thanks to the reality check of my problems! Sometimes an idea grows in your head and it takes an outside force to squash the bug!
Today I have been working on how to connect the wall modules. I have decided to use good old paper clip method. I used that 10 years ago, it is easy to create and the raw ingredient should be available to everyone.
The connection is really tight. I glue the side walls a little "inside" the long wall side so that when the clip is inserted it has space to "pull" the two modules together.
The connection taken apart. There is a little slot cut into the sides and the base.
The door wings? Yes. My standard way is that they are scored and can be opened (and then locked again with a bar). The other approach would be different separate door elements (open and closed) that you can insert as needed (for gaming).
Started texturing the walls today. I have added a couple of color variations as suggested by squirmydad. I will also add the openings/slots for the arrow and gun shooters. Maybe I will try a wood variation.
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...
