Hi, I design world of fantasy under voiced title "Book of races". Long time I upgrade my work. This time I have question to you about chainmail. I would like to draw the agreed on outline only. What do you have tips and advice? On attachment my work in progress.

I think they both could be effective. I worry about tons of detail for a 28mm figure - when scaled down and printed on an inkjet printer, the 2nd chainmail effect (the one on the right) might get muddy and dark, whereas the one on the left might look just fine. It would be interesting to see some test prints!

Now I can see everything! mproteau (Paper Realms) is probably right about the test printing and I bet a middle ground solution will be best. I was thinking about onemonk figures and sanity studios but I think your style is closest to okumarts. Maybe you could take a look at some of mail and see if you can adapt it to suit you.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
Actually, I think both styles look good, I did a test print, with a scaled photograph of some actual Chain mail as comparison.. This was taken at about a two and a half foot distance from the figures, so this is pretty close to what you would see with them on a tabletop.

pavaro, I fixed the image link, so now people should be able to see the picture in the post..... Photobucket has been bothering me, they recently made some changes, including limiting upload size to 1024x768, where before I could upload full size pictures ( and with my camera I can get pictures up to 6000x4000 pixels).. I might need to search for a different picture hosting site.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

okumarts: My taxes are still at the accountant. They are backlogged.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

Vermin King: Not all progress is beneficial...

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.

Punkrabbitt: It's working fine for me o.0

cowboyleland: For some reason Hoard 93 isn't downloading for me. No error message, just nothing happens when I click.

Vermin King: Extreme localized flooding sucks ... if it is centered over you
