If... released this set wouldn't be cheap one I'm afraid... ca 3.99-4.50$ price tag
The basic idea is to include both republic and imperial period legion command including: legatus, tribune, centurion, signifer, trumpeter/bucinator, optio and tesserarius) and perhaps //not decided// some praetorian guard (Figs are mostly based on acknowledged historical references, like Trajan's Column/Colvmna Traiani - triumphal column in Rome, and more than one version for most of the each basic figurine is planned, so a lot of additional or even needless from cardboard figurines POV yet important details; Then regular legionaries could be issued as separate sets: republic / imperials
There are so many ideas/figurines/versions and accessories ... so at some point I've decided to split this theme-set into 2 or even 3 discrete sets: - Roman Command I - Republic - Roman Command II - Empire - Roman Command III - Mounted (not sure how to name this set though?)
Perhaps I'll add mounted figurines into both "basic" Republic and Empire sets, but this would result with significantly greater files or with some serious content cutting (so less figurines/versions or less accessories)
Kinda go too far with this one... I'm the worst!
(and pls even don't ask about REGULAR LEGIONNAIRES - I've so many versions and some really(?) cool ideas like changeable 2.5D versions of wall of shields, turtle and other battle formation etc. then some "ancient artillery" and a lot of accessories - just need to figure out how to put all these together into some reasonable sets - there is a threat that content would be "watering down" or opposite - too much content squeezed into one or two sets (so some figurines/versions would be abandoned, which is always sort of wastage)
Roman Republic Tribune - preview (incl. shield placeholder)
This preview pic/figurine is strongly scaled down (like 1/15 of original size and then 72DPI only, converted into RGB), so it's rather really poor quality (at least compared to original working version)
When printed (original 30mm scaled fig) on decent laser printer it looks really good! Thing is when printed (meaning original figurine, NOT the preview below) on low or even mid-range inkjet printers (various Canon and HP tested) it's much more blurred and not so crisp and bright as it supposed to be. Then (at least in my case) most of multi-purpose/office printers like Lexmark and Samsung printers just... disappoints.
Problem is that most of subtle details simply disappears at print - and then even worse - from 50-70cm (like hand-distance or gaming-table-distance) these details are, even when printed with good quality, almost not visible/negligible. And note that this one fig is rather moderate not the-most-detailed one!
So, so much work and love to details is just lost! Then wanna to stress that IMHO this "issue" is significant mostly regarding detailed (ie. with thin-lines detailed artwork) 30mm historical figurines and not so relevant or even negligible when it comes to some "fantasy" themes (like Fantasy/Sci-Fi/PostApo etc.)
Most probably level of details and perhaps too much shadows and gradients are not only guilty but just needless? Right now I'm trying to find out how to semi-automatically decrease these details so print-outs would be acceptable (for me:) even on typical low-level/bargain home printers
Perhaps I could submit some original figs with 100% quality (huge files) and then some "downgraded" / scaled versions so some of you could do print-test and give some feedback? Dunno, perhaps such test-run might be useful for some other users or even publishers?

Vermin King: For Papercuts this year, I am just going to use things created since last Papercuts. Bessie for the model and Onager Longhauler for the kitbash. I was going to build 10 Downing St for a Bessie backdrop, but that ain't happening

Vermin King: I've decided I need to stop trying to get stuff back that I lost and get back to working on new stuff. Until work stuff gets caught up, I need to fight the rebuilding aspect.

bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss
