Well, if you are asking for a "Wishlist," here goes...
IF I could have ANY sets of these, I would like to see this...
The "new" ones, with the guns at the ready, I would like to see as smaller 30mm. These could be the "Space Marine" versions, and the other ones (the original) would be the larger, full-size versions. These would be more like the "Dreadnaught" version (40mm).
The more I see the Spikes, I would LOVE to see these on the larger ones (the Dreadnaught Class), and not on the smaller ones.
Also, I would say that if you removed the spikes off the arms, then it might blend together better... I would use these as weapon mounts on the larger ones only.
I would say 4 of the "Dreadnaught Class" per page, spikes on armor, but not the gauntlets.
The "Marine" versions would be maybe two squads of 5 per page (no spikes at all).
As far as colors go, I think I saw that you have 8 colors. That would be 4 colors per page.
The Marine versions could be two colors per page (5 of each color).
Another "request" would be one heavy weapon per the 5... It could just be a larger version of the one they are carrying.
Another option would be to have one of each color per page. This would make a more "reasonable" request.
I am NO good at laying out figures, nor do I have any skills at Photoshop or Gimp.
I DO have very strong ambitions, and a knack for seeing the potential in things.
Funny... Didn't I say on the last page that I wouldn't ask for anything else...
Like I said, "This is a Wishlist."
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
I usually just drag them onto a word document. (It seems the only way I can get them to stay the right size.) Drag on as many as will fit and print it. This way you can pick and choose what you want/need. Would it be easier if I just resized all of them so you could choose between dreadnaught or space marine? If I need to make a pdf, I just print the word document as a pdf (with Primo). As far as colors, do you want anything in particular? i.e. Like a military green instead of neon green or maroon instead of bright red, or even an orange?
All laid out, yell if anything looks off scale or I've missed anything I couldn't find anything finished by Jose, just previews at very low res. Mespers if your okay with yours being added and released under cc3 non-com license let us now and I'll add them in (no pressure either way).
I'll give it a few days for feedback then wrap this one and get it cut out and photographed.
I try to leave them as submitted and only play with scales when they are coming out a funny size.
In this hoard the only ones i adjusted were Imnntts versions of parduz robot when I checked his against the original they were slightly to small so I increased the size to match the original 300dpi one from memory they were about 15% to small
edit - I forgot she-lob was in this hoard it caused problems as well, I ended up printing it from firefox to pdf printer then reimporting to GIMP@300dpi I had no clue how big it was meant to be
edit2 - From a layout view the miniatures that cause the most problems tend to be the ones that are at a high res but have fallen back to 72dpi and hence the sizing ends up scrambled ie its now 72dpi x 7inchs tall x 6 inchs wide (normally its not 300dpi but another I cant guess at). The easiest to deal with are those in pdf format as its easy to import those at whatever dpi to GIMP and the scale is spot on. Second best are those with some indicator of height/size or when the image is posted at 300dpi with correct sizing. I have no idea what causes issue 1 to occur but happens to at least a few minis whenever I put a hoard together, not sure if others have found the same thing. Odd base sizes also adds an extra level of fun

Vermin King: Sounds like a lot of fun. Did you get any photos?

okumarts: Fewer casualties than expected. Mostly from just bad rolls by me. Like, really bad rolls.

okumarts: The Gauntlet was super fun. We played two consecutive nights (Sunday and Monday)

wyvern: okumarts - How did the SD Gauntlet go? And more importantly, how many characters did you lose playing it ?!

okumarts: I'm playing a game tonight. The Cursed Barrow of the Superb Owl: a ShadowDark Gauntlet.

Vermin King: Who all had game night last night?

Vermin King: A mixture of both is probably appropriate

gothique: In my Mother's case, I arranged the funeral and house clearance (a lot of which I did myself). The bank insisted that my brother dealt with finances and took over as executor. I am still not sure whether to feel relieved at that, or insulted.

Vermin King: He eventually showed up and I sat out on the porch for 20 minutes allowing him lap time. It was a relief to see him again

Vermin King: Well after spending my day dealing with more of Mom's estate, I got home to find Rat the Feral Tom not around. I didn't see him when I was home Friday night or before I left Saturday morning.

Vermin King: Thanks. It's kinda strange that there is so much work involved. A lot more than when I worked in estate planning and finance over 20 years ago

gothique: I have been in your situation and have only recently started my current build. One day you will feel motivated to work on something. Nobody here is forcing your hand, me included.
