Wheelociraptors? Well, I should be working on Historical MIX Set #3 but... got distracted So Instead I am playing with some sort of Robo-predators!!!
Long story short - after many iterations of unauthorised software mutations, unofficial hardware upgrades etc AI mutiny happened as an result... so wild but also smart and ruthless mecha-predators and mutated class of robots was born!
In this case we are dealing with autonomous version of Velociraptors - Wheelociraptors!
(BTW I'm kinda proud of this name - looks like I'm the first one who invented "wheelociraptors")
BUT While I have couple of these robo-predators already made (including Scout, Scavenger, Assault, and Retribution versions) I'm not sure regarding scaling - my first take was as shown in the preview, still it looks (meaning Wheelociraptor) kinda too big?
But then these feral machines should be much bigger compared to humans, right? Then - if needed users can print set pages with reduced size (like 20-35% smaller?)
//and just to be clear - each original figurine size change causes the need to change accordingly tabs and outlines (contours) and in some cases even tab description/text, then figurines placement on sheet - so I'm not a lazy one, it's really a lot of work, assuming at least a decent level of quality//
Anyway - the "open" question is can you accept the size/proportions shown in the preview image - otherwise would resizing/rescaling figurines (during the printing process) would be a problem?

I think that you are probably at the upper limit of size. I think that I would be more comfortable at about 75% of this size. I think that by having them this size, gives the end user the ability to reduce the scale to whatever he/she wants. It is generally easier to reduce than enlarge
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
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...
