I am really enjoying the 'fluff'-creation of this setting. I'm considering doing a webcomic set in the retrospace universe and maybe even a Space Hulk style boarding party game (like Katana Schoolgirls in scope). Any ideas or interest?
I agree with Parduz.
A SpaceCrusade/StarQuest-like game is the best for me.
Sitting in the tub today I finally figured out how to make 3d deckplans for a hulk skulk I wanted to make for retrospace (or any other sci fi game). It's only been on my mind for 15 years and it seems like such an obvious approach. Sheesh...
I'm hoping to get this out in the next day or so. Life keeps rearing its ugly head. After this it's the minis for the winners of the papercut awards and then the booster expansion set for Katana Schoolgirls. Busy busy...
Great, great, great set. As always. I love this your "retro-space" series. And objectively there are all reasons,
Great artworks, great characterization, great poses. Many figures. so many options ... And a bonus set that is getting used too good the buyers ... Eleven other ( very great ) original figures, I think. Another complete set for free indeed.
So thank you very much David. You are one ( among a few ) real supporting producers for this kind of product. Thank you again.
I also really like your series' own personal management. Now, for your retro-space series, I think there are all the major factions, except for one.
I hope you haven't abandoned the idea of drawing this one.
Subsequently might be interesting expansions for already published series.
Thanks so much Rhannon. You are aways observant and kind. Yes, the Space Amazons should be next. I've been struggling with how to present them in a way that is consistent with the source material (early 20th century pulp sci fi) AND contemporary (not sexist). I think I have a good sense of what I am going for and should have something in the new year. I'm also interested in expanding a few alien types such as the ocopoids and the small headed snail guys in the recent set. There have also been calls for a more hard sci fi line which I will admit I am intrigued to attempt. Ultimately I want to make Retrospace into a game or at least a supplement for an existing game. I think this era of sci fi is full of wonder and fun and I don't want to give it up quite yet. The original Star Wars films had the same 'feel' to me as did Original Star Trek when you come right down to it. Next up though, I have some contest winner minis to draw.

I'd love to see something insect like,maybe a more bipedal version of the Vrusk from star fronties. I bet your dynamic style would look great with something that has multiple spindly arms and legs. I kinda like those slug guys though.

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