So Sanity Studios is going to a local convention and we will be judging some unpublished boardgames and also have a booth to show off our communities stuff. I want to take Mech Attack, some of Dave Graffam's stuff (if he'll let us), and of course some Onemonk stuff. I'm looking to get a wide variety of stuff to show off. The con is Feb 18-19 and I'm trying to give us enough time to assemble all this. Do you have any more good ideas for stuff to show? Also, if you're in the area come on down and say hi. We'd love to meet ya and play a few games together.
Utah...for some reason I thought you guys were based in Australia. It would be fun to come, but that's a long ways from the central coast of California. Are you looking to show off the commercial stuff or just anything interesting?

Yeah, plain ol' Utah. We're not as exciting as Australia (but I do own a kangaroo skin book bag).
Really anything that shows the diversity of paper gaming. If it's commercial I would like to have the permission of the creators first, but if it's not (and it looks presentable I'd like to show it off. I would like to keep it specific to our forum members however.

Yeah tommy, that panorama shot really shows off your stuff. It looks good. Maybe we can work on getting it into a pdf w/ cut files and getting more publicity (ie on the front of onemonk ). I don't have any current day stuff yet so I'll keep your stuff in mind. I've just got to find the time to build and cut all this (not to mention they only give you a 8'x8' space).
Once you build the first building they come together pretty fast. They are basically just boxes. The bigger ones are reenforced with chip board or cereal boxes. I understand if you don't have the room. I think the fort could be used to help display the fantasy figures? Whatever you want to do or not is fine.
I went and grabbed them off of RPGNow. Thanks for the reminder. I also got Jabbro and Anitangel's freebies too (I think I already had them somewhere but I can't find them). If you do have 'cut file ready' versions of your stuff (and the GSD files that go with 'em) that would help since I've already got a huge backlog of things to cut.

So it's less than a week away and I've got most of Mech Attack! done (finally). I think I would have to agree with Parduz that it does take a while to do a complete set (I understand you should do it in pieces but I'm a completion-ist [read as OCD or crazy I can't tell which]). We also played our first game which was quite fun. Here's a few pics of the models:
I found the record sheets were a bit small (but not until I had printed and laminated a ton of the small ones) so I enlarged them a bit (and laminated them of course). I will probably have to print/laminate some more.
Now I have to get Solid State War going but I'm kinda bogging down without the cut files (am I spoiled?) I do have two planes cut but not assembled. I was hoping to have four of each color before the con. We will have to see how far I get. I do at least have some small plane top-downs printed if need be.
That's an incredible collection. You can run several games at once with all those models. Very impressive...
The smaller record sheets are intended to fit in card sleeves like the Privateer Press games... But it might be a good idea for us to also include a larger size, then you could choose which one you wanted to use. Another advantage to being a print-and-play game.

SaltCON is tomorrow and I (as always) under estimated how much time it would take to get everything done. I am still in full modeling mode trying to get everything done. However, now that I look at it all, I'm not sure if it will fit on the display table. I guess we'll see tomorrow ;D I've got so much more I want to do though!
We did some demos of our games including Mech Attack, and Solid State War. Those who played had a great time. We did our best to promote paper modeling, so hopefully it will be of some help to our cause.
The only thing we forgot to bring were buckets to catch all the drool. Our whole display was slobbered on and ruined. Only joking, but really, we blew some fuzzy little minds with this stuff. People were blown away.
A look at the overall display.
Nik's 15mm undead and elf armies.
The wife of Boffo the Sane herself!
A nice look at our banner.
We hope we have stirred interest for paper miniatures. We will probably go back next year and do it all over again.
My compliments for your showcase. Other than the insane amount of work to put all that things together, i admire your willing to promote the whole market by showing "competitor" games and stuffs on your own table.
squirmydad: My heart just sank, thoughts and prayers indeed.

Vermin King: I saw on Facebook that glennwilliams coded on the table while he was having surgery and is now in ICU on a ventilator. Thoughts and prayers would be appreciated

cowboyleland: Thanks to squirmydad for continuing to make the forgotten cool stuff easy to find.

Vermin King: Got to see Jeff Beck at one of those. Pretty cool. Only time I saw Adrian Belew was at a club gig in KC. Now, I am trying to get Mom up and running on Pandora for old country music. It's her first smart phone

Vermin King: I think I have it going now, Barbara Streisand hasn't come up on Willie Nelson in over 48 hours. Back when I was in Cleveland, a disc jockey was formerly with Peter Frampton's band. He set up club gigs for folks

senkosmos: I'm a fan of every artist you mentioned, particularly Jeff Beck (Beck, Boggart & Appice being among my top 3 heavy blues albums, I'ts certainly a pity that Pandora is given you such a hard time to listen to Belew
Jun 12, 2021 8:02:20 GMT -9
Vermin King: I then did another search and started a new Adrian Belew station. It did have 'Artist Only', but the Thumbs Playlist would only go to eight songs. If I added a song, it deleted another. I think I now have it fixed. Didn't have that problem with others
Jun 11, 2021 14:41:41 GMT -9
Vermin King: Back to Pandora. I doubt that there are many Adrian Belew fans here, but on Pandora he is jinxed. I deleted the radio station since it did not offer 'Artist Only' mode, and the Adrian Belew Radio Thumbs Playlist never existed.
Jun 11, 2021 14:38:57 GMT -9
Vermin King: Rant over ... almost. I'm sure I will be back on this later
Jun 7, 2021 16:40:49 GMT -9
Vermin King: And Tom Petty is on every station, including Willie Nelson. I like Tom Petty's songs, but not to where I have collected his station, and he certainly doesn't fit on the Jeff Beck station.
Jun 7, 2021 16:39:44 GMT -9
Vermin King: And why does the David Bowie station play America and John Denver? Aargh
Jun 7, 2021 16:36:49 GMT -9
Vermin King: I totally do not understand Pandora any more. I changed phones and when I logged into Pandora, my stations were basically wiped clean. Adrian Belew used to have Adrian Belew, King Crimson, Zappa, etc. Now it has only played one true Adrian Belew song

squirmydad: Last year the schools did drive-thru graduations. No overtime, not authorized this year.
May 17, 2021 7:25:26 GMT -9
cowboyleland: Canada is up to 50% (eligible) vaccinated but we are still not reopening schools. My kid probably won't get a grad at all.
May 17, 2021 6:38:27 GMT -9
Vermin King: Oo, doggies! I hope you get overtime
May 17, 2021 4:22:28 GMT -9
squirmydad: I'm setting up staging and sound systems, running the grad, then striking and rolling to the next one. I'm pretty tired and still have one more week of these. An end of year concerts.
May 15, 2021 21:07:38 GMT -9
squirmydad: Returning to normal means that for me I'm working every graduation (x27) that the schools and programs are doing this spring, each graduation being on the schools site, sometimes 2 or 3 in the same day.
May 15, 2021 21:06:05 GMT -9
Vermin King: I guess returning to normal is causing things to be very quiet here lately

mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - the best thing to do is to pull the art out of the PDF and print straight from Silhouette Studio. That way you can ensure you have the registration marks you want, and the cutlines all line up. I have a video showing how to do this easily if needed.
