These are really great figures. I love the way you have posed them, and terrific use of vector graphics.
How are you planning to use them? Any specific games/rulesets in mind?
Currently I'm using the characters as inspiration (and procrastination) for a novel that I'm trying to write. I'm hoping that by making a few of the characters move from my imagination to the physical world, will help spark ideas and maybe fill in the gaps in my plot lines.
Actually I'm probably a bit of an anomaly as I don't play any games. I used to play non-miniature games like Cyberpunk, Vampire: The Masquerade, After the Bomb (hence all the animal characters), D&D, etc. I also played Bloodbowl and dabbled a bit with Warhammer 40K. Currently I'm not involved in any games. I still like to check them out, partially for the game mechanics but mostly for the artwork and back story.
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?
Hooray for After the Bomb and down with the Empire of Humanity!
I really liked the ATB animal character generation system. The game mechanics weren't my favorite (Cyberpunk's system was way easier to use for conflict resolution and fast game play), but I really liked being able to decide just how human I wanted my animal character to be.

Palladium is known for its time consuming character creation process. Its a bit annoying for one nighters, but with a committed groupand consistent gaming schedule, I prefer the longer character creation processes. It helps me get attached to the character a lot more.
Ive done dozens of while wolf characters, for example, but i was about as attached to them as much as I was attached to the pizza boxes they were written on; once it served it purpose, it was worthless.
besides, what other game system has rules for playing spider goats?

I totally forgot about After the Bomb, and TMNT RPG, I just picked up both for reference material for more Apocalyptic figures. It looks like I could make a thousand different figures and still not cover everything!
I'll be looking into making a bunch of modular mutant and other parts for mix and match figures.
Mutants would be good to design too, it's easy to cover anatomy issues by just calling them deformed mutants. JIM
So far I've finished the front view. I'll probably wait on the back view until I get my Robot submission for December finished. Although I could put a key on his back and claim he is a wind-up mouse... Nah!
Let me know what you think. -WaffleM

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!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
