I have an Apache set on the drawing board (no really, that's where it is). I will approach each First Nation as a separate set, attempting to respect the unique look and feel of each group. In the meantime here are some "build" photos... This is Set Two showing off the cacti:
Almost makes me wish I was playing in (or running) a Western.
Dryw the Harper
HEY! Don't sell yourself short, Dryw! I built your two Imperfect Wild West figures some time ago, and have been pining for some other characters to go with them. The Imperfect Wild West figures make very good "colorful sidekicks" to the Whiplash Trigger figgers!
Aww, thanks for picking up the book. The superheroes in there are from my Champions campaign from 1982-2003. Some of the other characters were "fill ins" that my daughters made up. Of the five books from them it was one of the most fun to create. Michael's has been really good about displaying my books. Nice to hear there is still a presence out there after all these years. My brother sent me a photo of Oxford University's book store window once and when you looked closer you could see my book in the window. Kind of fun.
Whiplash Trigger Set Three: Unlikely Heroes should be out tonight barring any technical issues.
I am kicking around some terrain ideas for a summer release and I am a-wondering... Are people more likely to buy terrain that is modular and collapsible (stores relatively flat) or are people more interested in permanent builds?
Personally, I prefer collapsible solutions since I have space issues. I've been trying to either find more space to be able to build and store the several models from Dave Graffam that I've got, or to find a way to mod them to be able to store them in a more compact form. That said, I think that for all the people who do have the space, permanent builds are way better as you can make them sturdier, they don't wear from assembling/disassembling and they are always ready to use.
Regarding modularity, that's always a plus to help modding but I guess it's not always practical. For instance, I love the West Gate for its geometry, I don't know if it would keep so much of its uniqueness if it was made modular. On the other hand, Glenn's Slagtown: Eden is a modular playground and it works great for sci-fi/post apoc. Maybe it's a matter of game setting?

Some things work well that way, but others don't. I personally like TommyGun's approach of stackability. Somewhat modular, but they stack inside each other. Take a look at it at his website. tommygun.sector-17.com/tommygun/main.php
Dave's Inventor's House would not lend itself to that style.
Some of my simpler structures have little triangle pieces I glued on inside corners at top and bottom that fold out like cheap cardstock picture frames. Folded down they make the buildings more rigid and square, but when I want to take them down, I fold it back flat against the inside wall, and the main body of the building folds flat. The roof easily flattens.

David, those Retro guys are so cool, and the layers are a great option.
I know you had mentioned you were thinking about doing a Ninja set in the near future. Please include a layers option (black,,red,white,maybe blue) when you do. It would greatly add to the value of the set being able to have classic, hand, storm shadowy, and Tick flavored ninjas avaialble.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

Vermin King: Not all progress is beneficial...

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.

cowboyleland: For some reason Hoard 93 isn't downloading for me. No error message, just nothing happens when I click.
