Last night I was able to sit down and ink up two of the characters for Buck's request. I have a new light board. Using that and taking into account the advise I have received, I think I have managed to improve my inking quite a bit. I needed no editing after scanning and very little cleanup.
The other one I have inked is the serving wench. I'll get to her later. Maybe tonight I'll get to design and ink two more.

This model worked great tonight as a paper stand in for WHQ's imperial noble. We do have the original metal mini, but since we've been using paper for monsters, I have been looking for appropiate or semi appropiate paper minis and this one fill the bill quite nicely.

I am glad that everyone has enjoined the noble. I think I am getting the hang of the new style. Unfortunately I had to prepare for a presentation this Friday so I had very little spare time today, but I did manage to finish the wench. Don't worry Abbadon, I think she is the type you are looking for.
I have not really tried other genres. If I finish these before it closes, I'll have to do something horde themed. I was thinking Sci-Fi.
Cool. Now that I am doing things on a different scale, I can capture a bit more personality and not just a static face. This helps a lot.
Buck, here is the third main character. I have one extra inked, and I'll start on him next. Tonight I'll try and design the other two NPCs, but I cannot guarantee that I'll have all three done by Friday.
This one is a bit stooped over, so he is shorter. I kindda modeled him after a Thieves World character of the same occupation.
Once again, Jabbro, I don' t know how to thank you! These figures all look awesome! I'll be printing and cutting out tonight along with the last of my tavern as well. (I'm using Fat Dragon's Dragonshire Interiors to make the tavern where the big fight is gonna take place!)
I love the detail on the bartender - especially the dagger in the back of his boot!
Well Jabbro, you'll be happy to know that your mini's were a huge success! The tavern fight ended up being a lot of fun! The players moved quickly to defend the bartender (Gotta keep the drinks coming...) and were extremely dismayed at the death of the serving wench! More than a couple of the commoners met an untimely death as well.
Thank you again for all the time you put into the figures for this. Hopefully a lot of the other people on the board will get some use out of them as well! Here are a few photos from the session last night. Enojy!
Vermin King: His eyes must not be as old as mine

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
