Hi guys tonight i got an idea... using my square grid system for wargames i was thinking to make the battle of helms deep in paper!!!!! i was thinking to make walls and gates as 3d models and use a layer of paper glued above cardboard to make the high grounds... here s a concept for the map!!!
and here s the first urukai
this s a fan set so i will not ask money for it ... but if someone of you wants to help .... well why not :3 :3
OT: not very good kickstarter campaign. But exceptional product for 5 USD pledge. Good quality of the figures, excellent colors, great quantity of figures. Anyone who has not pledged to $ 5 has lost a great deal. ;-)
Next time a little more on the piece and less hops to the right and left. :-D
PS: Antonio, is private contact possible to talk about a possible commission? :-)
The drawing cowboyleland linked to seems to be the only sketch Tolkien himself made that's easily visible online, but if you have access to a copy of the book "The Art of The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien" (by W. G. Hammond & C. Scull, Harper Collins, 2015, pp. 99-104), there are three other drawings of the same place by Tolkien there, with some additional description. Of those, Figure 76, p. 103, helpfully sets the Hornburg and the various elements of the defences in the broader context of the Deeping Coomb as a whole. What's especially interesting is that although all four sketches show similarities, there are variations between each, as Tolkien's own ideas about what Helm's Deep looked like changed somewhat over time. None of these are identical to any of the subsequent impressions of Helm's Deep by more recent artists and map-makers, while the necessities of games based on the Battle of Helm's Deep may need other adjustments - the 1974 Fact and Fantasy Games board wargame, for instance.
Rhannon thankyou a lot :-D you make me blush ;-) yes you can send me request by private mail whenewher you want wyvern ... very interesting... from that 74 game the castle looks completely different from the film fortress... mmm i think i will follow the film it s more simple to begin... after that maybe i can try other versions!!! i was thinking to minastirith too... but tomorrow i will print the first group of urukai i m even trying to make a movement trai for the minia ... and do you have a photo from that page in artbook???
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

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
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
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?
