And yeah, carry on posting here for the time being, although if you want to submit these to the Hoard, dropping a post in the Hoard thread would be a good idea as well - just so's it's easy to find when Jim & co are rounding up all the entries. If you feel you're going to be doing more, I'd say take Jim up on his offer of a board; he'll move the threads from here into that.

Adding them to the HOARD topic will help us remember to add it. As usual, your style is great and fits perfectly with mine. I hope of all hopes that you feel that you have the time and skills to do commercial work, I would live the competition! You can borrow all my ideas, no problem.
I'm warning you, post one more figure projects and BANG! your getting your own board! Your move....
We just had this discussion, I am not a business manager, I can barely manage myself let alone steer anyone else. I can support and help you guys get setup with your own little sales area of RPGnow just like I do.
This forum is to inspire and support everyones individual efforts, not to create a team of designers. And everyone knows, organizing artists is like herding cats ,that are wet, and it's cold out, and all you have are like spoons to heard them with... JIM
I definitely see where you're coming from. Besides, sites like RPGNow, as far as I can tell, are pretty much ideal if you want to set up selling stuff by yourself, and I must admit, I wouldn't mind giving it a go myself once I've got a few more of my original designs ready to go.
Remember, not working as a team isn't the same as actually being in competition. Say I set up a small press section on RPGNow selling my figures. Even if I design them in such a way as to be easily compatible with Jim's (which I daresay I would, simply because it works so well), we still have different art styles, and people are bound to have their own preferences as to which they like. On top of which, it's a simple matter to differentiate oneself by doing minis that Jim doesn't have planned, or won't be doing for the foreseeable future, thereby covering an empty niche in the market rather than directly competing.
Is it easy to set up a publisher's account? Are there any up-front fees to deal with or particular prerequisites?

My way of thinking is to have a collective body of artists that could develop skills and almost more importanly share filiters/texturing skills; create a library of layers/textures/filters which can be used by all the artists.

Jim: I actually do too many ranges for just one person, but I'm a bit mental.
I just don't want to get all tied up with money stuff. it's really easy to get setup to sell on RPGnow, no fees, no nothing. You can sign an exclusive seller agreement to get a better percentage on sales.
The vendor tools take some practice to get used to, but it is not difficult by any stretch.
I'll start a new topic for this. Sorry for hijacking the thread...
COOL YETI! I have at some point owned all of the Heroquest games and expansions, and doing a print and play versions would be cool. I plan to do the same thing for Battlemasters. JIM
Wow, I did not expect one little yeti to trigger so much conversation. Personally I do not think I would have the time or stamina to do this commercially. I must admit that I like doing this, and I love the community that Jim has built here on the forums, but I am much better at short sprints of creative production rather than the long run.
I have a couple of more figures already inked that I need to color in the same genre. There is an Ice Gremlin and that frozen horror thinggy from HQ.

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

Vermin King: Aargh! Computer issues this AM. After fighting with things for 35 minutes, just rebooted and it works fine. Whew!

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: Found the video, uhm, I don't speak German but I think he likes them.

shep: Ah, I see. Good to know.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.

shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
