Looks good, Ashton. I am glad you picked these up again. They are looking nice. I usually avoid things like historical accuracy, but I like the looks. If you have to do one or the other, maybe you can mix them. Yoke with shoulder patches?
And apologies for no update yesterday - Saturday was busy, busy, busy.
I will probably do a page with the yokes and a page with the shoulder pads. So whoever buys this set will be getting a good deal.
I've managed to do a print test using the Cream uniform, and it looks OK colour wise. But the figures themselves look a bit wimpy when compared to Jim's elf & skeleton figures. They are exactly 30mm from base of foot to eyeline, but they look really thin. I may take them up to 31 or 32 mm and see what they look like then. I'm hoping that will fix it. I don't want to have to go through everything and scale things width wise - that would basically mean starting from scratch again. I'm already going to have to do it with the spears - they are just too thin.
At the current size I could probably fit 10 or 12 figures on a sheet. If I do one page of 'yokes' and one page of 'pads' that will be 20+ figures!!
I also want to provide a standard bearer and unit leader (both with swords). One set of shields (one colour) and a selection of banners (same colour to keep the theme). So I'm looking at 4 sheets in the set.
The only thing I'm thinking about is the colour combinations. Here's my current thoughts:
Set #1: Cream Uniform - with blue yokes/pads, shields and banners Set #2: Green Uniform - with red yokes/pads, shields and banners Set #3: Brown Uniform - with green yokes/pads, shields and banners
Yeah, Jabbro doesn't think that recolors are much good. No matter what I tell him, he thinks it is waste of space in a pdf. I don't agree, I think it is time saver for your customers to provide different color schemes. I don't think it would raise the price of the product though, it wouldn't be fair. So in that point of view the artist could turn the recoloring time into his/her new project.

bravesirkevin: Monty Python is mostly just absurdist humor coupled with a snide mockery of convention. They're also just trying to cheekily see what sort of things they could get away with, in much the same way that South Park does.

marcpasquin: I don't get seinfeld either to be fair so its not a british humour thing. I *can* quote Red Dwarf episodes.

marcpasquin: I just don't get monthy python. My wife made me watch Monthy Python and the Holy Grail and, yes, there are a few funny bits. But on the whole, I don't get why a bunch of vikings rappelling into a restaurant while chanting "spam-spam-spam" is funny.
