Hero Cartoon Knights and Dragons
PERMES Fantasy Series Set #79>>> Hero Cartoon Knights available at DriveThruRPG>>> Hero Cartoon Knights available at WargameVault
Well, this is one of those cases where someting that was intended to be a fun distraction, easy design and fast development went far beyond the norm and expectations...
During the set creation process several new solutions were found/used and new techniques were introduced - frankly speaking work on the new toolkit took much more time and effort than the arts and figurines themselves! So from the productivity/workflow point of view it turned out rather poorly;))
At some point I wrote a simple tool/program, which automatically rearranged and assembled figurines from previously prepared components (i.e. kinda figurine random generator). Well, sometimes it came out really, really weird and funny.
However surprisingly these randomly generated figurines came out not just funny, but in some cases also quite interesting and promising, so I start to consider further development of this project.
Maybe I'll try to show and write more about it, but for now let's get to the short presentation of the new set (which is in most parts made and assembled still in standard/traditional way).So Ad. REM
Obviously this is a different set than the previous ones from PERMES!
No more strict and realistic drawings/linearts - now it's simplified and overall cartoon-ish style, with more bright, saturated colours. Minis are made for carefree fun, rather for family play with children than serious RPG or wargaming - let's defeat the dragons together (or perhaps, on the contrary, defend dragons against loot robbers?)!
