I kinda like that she's closer to the ground in the first one - kinda like she's trying to be more approachable or less threatening to mortals. If you decide to do both, there's always plenty of room on the pages of the hoards. Great looking figure!
Been struggling to get something done for this months horde, but alas will be unable to finish.
Took me 6 redo's to get this from a basic thumbnail, and I'm still a bit unhappy with it, I have really gotten rusty! I still need to spend some time loosening up the drawing muscles, my hand and arm ache like hell trying to draw again.
Anyway, was trying to make a Kratos and Hades figures, but only got Kratos to this stage. Hope image shows up...
Will try to get these two figures finished up but will probably be next month.. JIM
okumarts has a post about a wood elf avatar, but the image in the post has a set of cyan lines through it, so I'm not sure it's a final submission. Vermin King posted a dwarven chariot, but I can't tell if it is a submission or not. aaron posted a whole set of dark elf horses, but I don't think this was a submission.
I'm going to start assembling a PDF of the figures I know were submissions, and I'll be making cutfiles for them. Please chime in about the other posts that I wasn't sure about.
In the future, the following would be super to speed up my end of things. Of course, I'll take what I can get, and I always appreciate people sharing their work. This stuff just makes my life a little easier on the packaging process:
1) when making a submission, put the word SUBMISSION right at the start of the reply. That'll make it obvious to me that there's something meant to go into the hoard. If you want to recall something, just edit the post to remove the word SUBMISSION. 2) if possible, submit images as PNG files with transparencies, where the image is 8.5x11" at 300 dpi. This makes it much easier for me to pull images together onto one sheet without having to think too hard. 3) if possible, use the forum hoard tabs. There's a package that includes a variety of standard tab sizes. It's not critical, but if you're making your own tabs and would rather have tabs that are styled in a more common fashion, feel free to use the ones that are available in the forums.

Admittedly, it sounds like it's only useful for someone who is assembling the hoard (me) but in fact it has a sheet with tabs on it. Using a standard tab isn't all that big of a deal, but I list it in case someone is submitting something to the hoard and they're thinking "I need to make a tab - maybe I'll just draw a randomly sized box and call it a day". At least the more I advertise the existence of the production packet, the more likely someone will say "no need to reinvent the wheel - I'll use what's already there!"
WOW I had no idea that was even a thing?? so the black part of the base of the model with the red line is called a Tab and they have standerdised sizes?? who knew?? humm I have always just made a box that fit the model and never even thought about what size it was??? hummmmm more things to think about ....
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)

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.
