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.

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.

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: 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...
