The sound of Dwarven pick axes working the mine, Dwarven revellers drinking ale, Dwarven merchants and tinkers in the market... Now here, Background Dwarves.
This set includes 8 Dwarven miners, 8 Dwarven drinkers, a couple of Dwarven Tinkers, a pair of Dwarven Merchants, and a number of Dwarven maidens.
Dwarven Background NPCs:
I know, I haven't posted much in the past few months, but now I have a new light board and since my parts of campaign are taking place in the Dwarven settlement of Black Shadow Mountain I needed a bunch of Dwarves. Warriors are easy, many artists have put out great Dwarven soldiers (special thanks to Sanity Studios), but I needed background characters to fill up the scene. I don't know if anyone esle needs them, but here they are, 2 pages of Dwarven Background Characters, 24 in all. Use them as you will.
I am also a big fan of the imperfect world. I have assembled nearly every minature you made at least once. (maybe I can post photos sometime) They are regularly on mission. Eg. last friday a friend of mine deployed some imperfect arabian civilist women and several men of the imperfect night watch for our rpg combat. So all I can say is: many thanks for sharing your dwarfs and your other minis with us. They greatly enhance our roleplaying game.

I don't know when that happened, Parduz. It was a surprise to me yesterday when I checked the link to make sure it worked and it came up with that message. I logged in and was able to download them, but it was the first time it ever asked me to as well.
These figures may be called "Imperfect Background Dwarves," but that is HARDLY the case! 24 figures, in multiple colors, and poses. The backs lined up perfectly, and they were very easy to cut out. No little pits or nooks that are hard to cut out or trim with my Sharpie. These are truly great figures.
I think you might want to consider going commercial. I have paid money for some sets that weren't done as nice as these.
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...

Actually, in my campaign it is the other way around. Dwarven males outnumber Dwarven females by four to one, making the females in high demand and something to be protected and guarded (and the reason why Dwarven men collect treasure since in order to marry, they have to show wealth and position since so many males compete over so few females). As such, on the rare occasion Dwarven women are out in public where other races might intermingle, the Dwarven women wear false beards and pass themselves off as Dwarven men. This led to the rumors among other races that Dwarven women have beards, something the Dwarves all get a good laugh about.

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?
