Something I've been fiddling with... I'm not 100% on it yet but the end of the month is fast approaching, so I'll submit what I've got. I will post a download link for them when I have output the complete gridded and gridless versions. Final version will be 8" square for each tile.
Will a different grid than the standard 1" squares be useful enough for me to make a third version??
Before It's finalized I'd like to get your guy's opinions on the green color: I know printers have trouble with that but if some of those greens are not in a particular printer's gamut will it look like crap or will the thing just try its best and just be less vibrant?

I think it will be a good green for most folks. I think most of us use inkjet printers, and with inkjet the colors wash out a bit. Right now, it's an early spring green, which will be a late spring green once printed.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

The color seems OK to me - a bit garish and bright, but that's a matter of taste, mostly. Another thing you should take into consideration, though: making your tiles 8 inches wide gives a headache to anyone who doesn't have a US Letter printer. A lot of folks out there have printers that handle DIN A4 exclusively and that format is less wide than letter. So if you want to design a tileset that can be used all over the world you should make your tiles 7 inches wide at most. That's also the reason why most designers settled on tiles of 6 x 6 inches.

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

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