I noticed the Bandit in the October 2017 Supporter reward reminds me greatly of Slant the Drushian from the 80's Classic fantasy "The Archer fugitive from the Empire"
Perhaps an idea for a future set could be "80's Fanatsy" With characters from Hawk the Slayer, Krull, The Archer, The Sword & the Sorcerer, etc.
You forgot Beastmaster, Dragonslayer, and Conan...
Btw., I like the German title of The Archer much better. It's called "Der Zauberbogen" which would translate to "The magical bow" or "The enchanted bow". So sad that this pilot failed, would've been a far better series than 90's Conan or early 2000's The Beastmaster. Yet another franchise they did very bad things to, I mean, the first movie is just gold, but the rest...?
Shep I am with you on The Archer! If that and Hawk the Slayer had made it to just even a single season each I would have been in Fantasy Heaven!!
I own a poor bootleg on DVD of The Archer. I just watched again yesterday!!
I have a DVD of the "original German release", digitally remastered but still of just almost analogue TV quality... It's a little bit like watching an old VHS tape, but hey, at least it's dubbed (unlike my Dragonslayer DVD which I could only get as a UK import for under 2 Euros...)

Have you ever toyed with doing a Sword & Planet theme? John Carter of Mars, Carson of Venus, Savage Swords of Athanor style stuff. Lightly armored warriors with swords and pistols, Princesses, multi-limbed beasties, cactus-men, fungoid-men.
I was able to release 24 full sets of Paper Miniatures this year, plus gaming material and bonus minis. 2018 was an exciting year for sure. That means that I put out over 5780 paper minis in 2018 alone (not including recolours, etc.).

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.
May 13, 2020 11:02:25 GMT -9
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?
