To respond to Eddnic's Sept 27 post re: the Barghast it is the first figure I ever coloured. I hadn't discovered GIMP yet and I'd started playing around with 2.5d paper figs. I wanted to see what one would look like coloured so I used watercolours and felt tip pen. Since I scanned him in I have done some work, (like flipping to make the front) but the watercolour and felt tip are still plain to see.
I want to modify the base to have it fold together like the ratman I just posted over at the "beastman and mutant" thread
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
I'm no Eddnic, but I did a little rescale and recolour on a first draft of a barghast. I'd like to go back and improve it some more, but I thought I'd post it in case you need a werewolf before I finnish the upgrades.
Hi, Cowboyland. Thanks for this! How can I can get a pdf? I can definitely put this to good use. I´d love to see the upgraded version as well.

Thanks for the figures! It is mind-blowing how you do this stuff! I downloaded the lizardman awhile back, and will make him soon! The only thing I didn't like is how you made the legs completely from the side view. I'll try to make isometric legs in my next figures and see how that turns out.
RIP Dan Wheldon, a great young Indy Car driver who died this afternoon after a fiery crash an the 11th lap of the final race. I follow NASCAR and Indy Car a little, and I would love to show you some of my racing board games. He will be missed.

I didn't have as much luck curling them to make tubes, though I did try that.
What I did was in the bulkier parts of the legs, arms and torsos, I would cut scrap paper a little narrower than the parts and sandwich that between the front and back halves of those parts. Just to thicken them up a bit.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016

Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.

Parduz: well, then may i ask if we go pre 1994 so we could get rid of Bungasconi...
Mar 22, 2020 17:06:54 GMT -9
ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.
Mar 22, 2020 8:19:43 GMT -9
Vermin King: I tried, but it hasn't worked so far. Maybe I will try again
Mar 22, 2020 4:46:23 GMT -9
Parduz: pls reboot the 2020, then.
Mar 22, 2020 1:07:14 GMT -9
Vermin King: Rebooting the whole system fixed it

marcpasquin: @vermin King to be fair, different hairstyle, costume type and about 15 years in between the 2 roles.
