Laughing and playing in the streets, crying and wanting their mommy, doing chores or working as an apprentice. What this release brings you is children. From babies to toddlers to children to teenagers, this release has it all.
Fourteen pieces ranging from a woman holding a baby to a couple of toddlers, children ranging in ages, preteens, and teenagers capable of helping with the chores or working as apprentices. Everything a thriving town or farmstead needs to continue growing. Young people of all shapes and sizes.
Dryw, these are amazing. Just the other day, I was lamenting not having a mother holding a baby. And I routinely need a stable boy to care for the PCs horses.
Speaking of horses, you did such an awesome job with those camels, that I'd love to see a riding horse and/or a warhorse from you. Xtea's big Belgian is beautiful, but it's harnessed to pull, rather than ride. Also I'd love to see horses in your style.
It's easy to put paper minis on horseback by simply cutting a small slot on the horse's back, and another at the bottom center of the mini. I've done this to mount Orcs on Dire Wolves, and it worked brilliantly. When your rider is unhorsed or dismounts, you just pop her back into her base. I'll take a picture tonight and post it.

Afet, I did the same thing with various One Monk armored warriors and One Monk's Nightmare. I actually ran off two of each figure, one for on-foot, and cut the black base tab off of the second figure and slotted them to mount them on the Nightmares (also slotted). Great minds think alike.
I tried horses and they came out terribly. I tried monsters and they came out terribly (hooray for One Monk monsters). I was surprised at how well the camels came out. I think I'll stick to people and character races for now.

okumarts, My answer for now is that my wife waves her magic wand and casts a magic spell way to complicated for my simple self to understand. She says she will try to write an explanation of her spellcasting technique and send it to you as a message in the next day or so.

Oh, love your stuff, visited your web site when you first posted.
Oh, and my wife said that the image is actually a screen shot of the PDF inserted via the image tag (whatever that means), if that's any help.
Thanks! This was just what I was looking for. I needed the Mom & Baby and the Boy on the Stick Horse last session!
But most Minis come with varied adults, but forget the kids. Historically peasants had large families because 1/2 their brood never reached adulthood. So any similar setting needs kids running about all over the place!

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

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.
May 13, 2020 11:02:25 GMT -9
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!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
