Nit picking is fine, it will make future minis better.
I'm not certain what you mean by cleaner detail coloring (do you mean shading the smaller objects individually?)
I didn't really do any highlighting here, just started with a light base color and shaded. I'm trying to incorporate highlights into the minis I am working on now but I am not sure I am really getting the hang of it. . . Practice practice.
As for more minis, I am working on another set now, I'm coloring them and hope to have them ready this week.
The Seed Born Brawlers are the first unit in the first faction of a skirmish minis game I have been working on for a while now. Finding this website really offered me inspiration in being able to put together a playable version of the game in a print and play format. I hope to be able to create minis for all the units in the game and get some play testing going. But with the time I can devote to it now that is still a number of months away.
It's been said other places on this forum, but it is true, getting the proportions right can be difficult, and it is really noticeable when they're off. Funny though, when I was finished I thought the torso and arms were to big. I built two sets of them last night and they look pretty good on the table at an arms length away.
They're definitely a race of woodland folk. I have had plans to include treants and some other special plant themed units. But as of right now I am concentrating on getting infantry done for just two factions so I can try and get some people playing.

Okay, just saw these for the first time and thought that they might make an interesting Sci-Fi Alien race for my Star Trek group to encounter as well as an interesting fantasy race. They would also be great for some Pulp Sci-Fi alien action as well, perfect as the sentient and barbaric plant natives of some jungle world under the control of some galactic despot.
Face piles of trials with smiles, it riles them to believe that you perceive the webs they weave.

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.

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?
