Are you planning on more weapon variants of the naga? If so, may i suggest tridents - seems to fit this race. I play World of Warcraft a lot, and in that game a lot of naga carry tridents - would love to have a couple of figures inspired by that game.
I actually found the easiest way was to draw the tab in Paint, believe it or not. I just did a little maths to work out the pixel dimensions (4x20mm, multiplied by 600dpi since I was working double sized and 300dpi), then drew and filled the appropriate sized rectangle in black. The advantage with Paint here is that you can actually draw in pixels, as if you zoom in to the right degree the grid actually shows the individual pixels. Then of course I changed the colour of the bottom row of pixels (to red in my case), then copied and flipped the tab upside down. That way, I'd got the two sides of the tab, with a red fold-line along the middle.
Tell you what, download these. These are my tabs, which I made to attach to figs with 25mm bases. They work out at 4mm by 20mm, which is how Jim rigs them (so you can, if you decide to, fit them into a 20mm base instead). The smaller file prints at the above dimensions at 300dpi, and the larger one at 600dpi. If you're attaching it to a figure at double size to scale it down later, use the large tab. If you want to mod the tabs so they come out at different widths, open them up in Paint and add 59 pixels to the width for every 5mm you want to add (to the 300dpi version; add 118 pixels to the 600dpi).
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...
