Hey! someone found the 'I Voted' sticker useful. Soaringraven has some pretty sweet stuff. We all need to visit and sit in on a game sometime
You've only seen a tiny fraction of the stuff we've built and designed over the years - but you can be sure that we'll show off and share some more in the future. If you ever find yourself in the Munich area (the one in Bavaria with the world's biggest bender in the autumn) you're very welcome to visit.
Thanks a lot to all the congratulations and compliments - they mean a lot! Also, congratulations to all the other particpants in this year's Papercuts. It's an honour and a pleasure to be a part of such a welcoming community.
I took a loot back at previous years to see how many voted for Best in Show and was surprised to see that the highest was 179 votes back in 2014. At present, we have only 28 votes for this year. At first, I was worried that this indicates our hobby is in massive decline. Then I looked again and noticed that folks were voting for up to 5 submissions and there were only 45 unique voters back then. So, maybe we're a little smaller now, but not by much, really.

Also many people don't bother to vote. In the past 24hrs (I know, too late to vote, but I assume it is a typical number) there were 46 members online and nearly 400 "guests." People who participate in the board in any way seem to be a very small percentage of people that have some interest, assuming most of the "guests" didn't get here by mistake.
soaringraven: Nice Surprise! We have some things in common: we both are european ( I live in Northern Italy, "only" 300 km from Munich); we are equal in age; we both like papercrafting (different skill levels, but I'm working on it). Of course, we both are male, married and so on...
I have no plan to taje a tripo to Germany, but it willl be nice to meet, somewhere in the future!
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...
