Hi PERMES, with the current Conan Kickstarter in full swing (and looking to be in the top 10 RPG Kickstarters of all time), any thoughts on doing some more "historical" miniatures that can be used with Conan too?
■ AQUILONIA: Medieval France ■ ARGOS: Merchant-ruled Italy ■ ASGARD AND VANAHEIM (NORDHEIM): Viking-age Denmark or Norway ■ BARACHAN ISLES: The Caribbean Islands, particularly Tortuga ■ BORDER KINGDOM: Baltic countries such as Estonia or Latvia ■ BOSSONIAN MARCHES: Medieval Wales and/or Scotland ■ BRYTHUNIA: Medieval Germany, Poland, or Lithuania ■ CIMMERIA: Gaelic Ireland and Scotland ■ CORINTHIA: Southern medieval Europe ■ DARFAR, KESHAN, KUSH, PUNT, ZEMBABWEI, AND THE BLACK KINGDOMS: Ancient African kingdoms such as Darfur, Nubia, Kush, Somaliland, Zimbabwe, and others ■ HYPERBOREA: Medieval Rus (Russia), particularly Novgorod ■ HYRKANIA: A cross between Mongolia and Scythia ■ IRANISTAN: Caliphate Iran ■ KHAURAN AND KHORAJA: Both are the equivalent of the Crusader kingdoms in the Middle East, such as Outremer and Jerusalem ■ KHITAI: Feudal-era China ■ KOTH: The Byzantine Empire ■ NEMEDIA: The Germanic Holy Roman Empire ■ OPHIR: Medieval southern Europe ■ PICTISH WILDERNESS: A combination of Scotland and Native American North America ■ SHEM: The west is the Iron Age Levant (Canaan) and Assyria, and the east is Arabian ■ STYGIA: Ancient Egypt ■ TURAN: Seljuk Turks ■ VENDHYA: Mughal India ■ ZAMORA: Arabian Nights-inspired Baghdad ■ ZINGARA: Reconquista-era Spain
Then in fact some of these "factions" are already covered - although not all as 28-30mm (for example PERMES Egyptians or some Eastern European warriors which are available only as 60mm Paper Figurines and needs some substantial update/recolouring before releasing)
But what is bothering me is potential copyright issues - have to check out if these specific names could be used without any problems...
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...
