I haven't tried photo paper. Cardstock seems a bit heavy. I haven't done these yet, but on another one of his creatures, heavy copy paper seemed a bit thin, so I just glued the paper to another page of the same thickness and it came out well. I'm not sure if the added strength was more from the added paper, or from the glue layer, but it worked well.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

I use matt photo paper for everything excet buildings and vehicles, easy to fold like paper and a little tougher. Gloss photo is even tougher, but I don't like the shine. To make them more durable, a spray with acrylic varnish is excellent, gives the minis a 'plastic' feel. I use the one from games workshop, it's expensive, but lasts for ages. But any acrylic varnish is great. As for glue.....UHU gluestick for laminating e.g. sticking the front and back together and tacky PVA for everything else, you don't realise how good this stuff is until you try it. Looks just like normal white glue but dries much faster and has a lot less water in it. Ednic is a design genius

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...

ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.

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.
