So I never paid right attention to fan sites, resources, history and evolution of this gaming system. But there are many enthusiasts and productors who offer theirworks and keep definitely alive this system ( moondesignpublications.com/ ).
My avatar...err... "FREE"...?! Man, it sounds even worse than "CHEAP"! =>It's NOT free by all means... it's, it's... it is simply PRICELESS!!! (LOL - for me at least)
Bow (Bow= But+Now) seriously, it's taken from project code name "Dark Fantasy" (+suffix Heroes and/or Warriors - err... in fact you can add here everything which sounds appropriate and better than boring "inhabitants" or "citizens".
This particular one (avatar protoplast) is known as "Warden Of The Eternal Fire", or "Flame Warden" - both tittles, you should agree, sounds much better then Fireplace Officer...?
It was planned (set, not fireplace!) as moderate collection of (max!) dozen figures for Cardboard Figures (60mm Paper Soldiers in other words). But then I started messing with it, adding some "Lizard Riders", "Flame Horses" with Skeleton Wizards (or Mages - I newer knew difference which ones are on Path of Light and which on Dark Side (forgot "of the Moon" in this case! and... well, eventually it ended as project in "endless progress" state... so, LOL, everything I got so far are spreaded unfinished sub-series (often even not thematically linked) and overall dozens of figures and couple of mish-mash collages as the linked one...
Whatta waist of time and effort - good thing is that I can at least count fun on the bright side!
Anyway, I would love to get back to it and, who knows, maybe even considering it as a challenge and reworked for 30mm - although not sure if this kind of "art" style will be good - it might be too dark or too detailed (or both from 3 feet "table top distance") when scaled down... The realistic approach might also turns for bad cause smaller scale sometime needs exaggeration, at least in some parts.
Well, if it would be sound interest I might consider it both interesting and worthy to try... not mentioning the fun factor:)

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.

mproteau (Paper Realms): Oooh... I'm at 256 out of 1000 photos... so, I suppose at some point I'll fall over and look elsewhere... and have to fix up all my product listings! I'll use my space frugally.

mproteau (Paper Realms): I have all my photos on flickr, and have never paid anything...

Vermin King: I didn't realize Flickr accounts cost that much. Maybe I need to raid the Agence Eureka site and Esben Rasmussen photostream, too

cowboyleland: I think all the paper model stuff there can be found on this board anyway.

cowboyleland: In the old days the way to post pics here was through a service like Flickr. These days I have better uses for $8.99 and I am going to close my account www.flickr.com/photos/cowboyleland/ if you want to have a look B4 it is gone.

mproteau (Paper Realms): Also, a fine time to plug my Patreon :-P patreon.com/paperrealms ; I have a LOOOOT of cutfiles available for paper minis. It's all Silhouette compatible, and everything I make has a readme to cover any special considerations.

mproteau (Paper Realms): I currently use a v1 Cameo machine (they're on v4 now) and love it.

mproteau (Paper Realms): The Curio is interesting - it has a different carrier mechanism that enables embossing. Some folks like how it handles scoring more than the other machines (that perforate to make a 'score' line). I recommend the Portrait.
Apr 28, 2021 9:05:27 GMT -9
mproteau (Paper Realms): The CAMEO models are a bit pricier, and get you a wider feed, and multiple tool holders. Not essential features, but could be great depending on what else you want to do with your machine.

mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - I actually still have my Silhouette SD and it's still working great. The Silhouette Portrait is very much like the old SD machine. A workhorse without a ton of extras, it can handle Letter/A4 papercrafting just fine.
