Glad people like these. I really like how the "Monster" came out.
Yes Dave Okum, you can post them on Drop Box and provide a link. I've never had a problem with 4-Share, but all I ever do is post Imperfect People there (and it took me long enough to figure out how to do that).
Parduz, thanks is enough. I had you in mind when I did these. Still, I intend for an adventure when the characters arrive in a small village and all they find is children living there. Perhaps I'll have to make lots of corn stalks from the old One Monk Halloween download.

Or a wicked Ratcatcher of Hameln brought them to an abandoned town of Koppelberg (after a plague perhaps). And now he sits somewhere in the chamber beneath the town, playing an inaudible tune for his children court to play to.
Having been lurking around this Forum for a while, this was the set that finally persuaded me to take the plunge and join, as much as anything to show support and huge appreciation not just for these youngsters, but all the many Imperfect sets I've been happily downloading of late. It all started because I wanted some figures whose style matched that of the Inked Adventures dungeon (etc.) tiles and furniture. And the rest, as they (should) say is pure profits for the printer companies...
The Child Adventurers especially took me back nearly twenty years to an "Ars Magica" RPG campaign based in the Welsh Marches. For those unfamiliar, "Ars Magica" sets your group of characters up with their own castle-like home/small village, called a Covenant, in a pseudo-medieval Europe, where magic works (naturally), and all kinds of weird things can happen. Well, they did for us! In between a couple of quite dark and difficult stories (= scenarios), we fitted in one just for the Covenant's children, who were being guided/manipulated by the local Faeries along the way, all quite light-heartedly. These figures would have been perfect for that adventure! And of course, being a children's tale, it all ended happily.
As regards 4Shared, I have had a couple of odd experiences with it, when downloading Dryw's figures and one or two other items posted there from elsewhere on this Forum. My antivirus software has taken offence at it a couple of times - I think because I've clicked on the wrong "download" link - for some reason the "right" link is a small ordinary typeface word, but the many wrong 'uns tend to be huge "click here" buttons, scattered liberally across the page. Also, when downloading one of the sets, there were some singularly inappropriate pornographic images displayed among the "related links" bit of the page. Now I'm an adult and not easily offended, but I'd be a bit wary about letting youngsters loose on such pages - and I'd guess Dryw's figurines will appeal to folks of all ages with a liking for cardboard minis.
Can't see this will put me off downloading Dryw's future sets from 4Shared though!

Really a charming set. Perfect for the moment when a great curse changes all of the hearty heroes into children and they have to convince the towne guards that trouble is afoot. The flour sack puppet monster is a great bonus!

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?
