Whiplash Trigger Western miniatures is a commercial release is coming in the next day or two. They are going to be used for an upcoming game I'm running so I thought I'd release them as my first commercial paper minis.

Just got 'em! Good stuff. I'm not planning on running a western campaign, but I wanted to play around with a project based on westerns. I just happened to be watching Hopalong Cassidy when I came across these. It'd be cool if you could do some mounted cowboy characters. Ain't no Hopolong Cassidy show that's complete without the big horse chase at the end!
I'm thinking I may put together a handful of tiny "electronic" pieces (like computers, communicators, power cells, etc.) or even some little gun augmentations to turn their pistols into slightly more future-y weapons, stuff that can be pasted onto their belts, holsters, etc., for space coboy/Serenity use.
Parduz, point taken with the arms. If it is an issue, simply score the gun arm at the shoulder and have the weapon point forward. Set Two: Horsemen is well on the way with two mounted characters pencilled and inked as of tonight. The set will have five individual characters, a mounted version and an unmounted version. Set Three: Characters is in development and will have a variety of Western archetypes from Lawmen, Grifters, Gamblers, Padres and Bounty Hunters. I think each Archetype will eventually get a set of 10.
Oh, if you could add me to the list on the main website, that'd be sweet. I will definitely return the favour. Tommygun, thanks for the kind words. Set Two should be out for Wednesday. I'll put up a preview Monday.
Response has been great! I am kicking in to full gear and will have the second Western set out for June 1st. Then there will be a Retro/Pulp Sci Fi release (2 actually). After that I will have a few more Western mini sets out in June along with a modern line release. This will be a busy summer!
Awesome idea, okumarts. Characters in different gaming situations. You could expand on that. The hat holding guy on the horse is funny. And I admire your overall hardcore design. You are a purist. My eyes stick to the dust clouds under the hooves ... .
Thanks Paladin! Set Two is currently being test built tonight and I should iron out some issues if needed. If I can stay up I'll post the product tonight. IF not I will get it out for Thursday. I added Two Cacti to the set. I will be releasing a "scenics" set later on and I was working on a cactus.
squirmydad: The minis are...out there...

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

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

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.

Vermin King: Rant over ... almost. I'm sure I will be back on this later

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.

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.

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.

cowboyleland: I thought they got rid of all their free accounts, but it looks like they re-thought that policy.

rag: mproteau - The plan is Worldworks' Titan Control. They have the cutfiles but the marks are in the old format - we'll see how it goes.
