Just so you know I have not given up completely; here are some figs my son asked me to make for the players in the campaign he is running. I've glued them up but I have not cut them out yet, so no pictures I'm afraid.

Just test built the guy at the top with the crossbow. I think I will go back and add fingers (warforged only have three) and let them fold their "hands" around their weapons. P9190026 by cowboyleland, on Flickr.

I think there is room for more than one criticism Kil. The "super macro" picture really shows up my poor cutting. I'm going to break down and buy glasses soon, and maybe resolve to do all my cutting before midnight.
I draw extra long necks so I can fold some of the neck under and create a chin. Looks like this one straightened itself out while I was fiddling with the camera. Stronger creasing next time!
Thanks for the props Eddnic, I'm certainly not going to mess with a string, though VK's thread idea could work.

Once again Vermin King's instincts (see Sept 15 post above) prove reliable. With a little work the warforged will stand up without bases. I still recommend basing for gaming, but for photo's they look good without. Still haven't bought those glasses I keep talking about, as the big white chunk on the axe guys hand will attest.
(edited one day later for spelling, sorry about that!)
Ok... you make an AMAZING set of figures, and you draw attention to the fact that there are a couple cutting issues...
Come on, man! I love your style and I this is INCREDIBLE work. Don't be so hard on yourself. This is like taking a picture of a model in a bikini standing in front of a Ferrari, and then saying, "Look at the gap in her teeth."
You make this kind of figure, this level of excellence, only to berrate yourself? I think you need to realize just what a gift you have! Don't point out your weakness, show off your skill! Which there is obviously a lot there...
(I hope this doesn't sounds condescending. I am just trying to encourage you. Please read it as so).

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.

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!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
