And yeah, carry on posting here for the time being, although if you want to submit these to the Hoard, dropping a post in the Hoard thread would be a good idea as well - just so's it's easy to find when Jim & co are rounding up all the entries. If you feel you're going to be doing more, I'd say take Jim up on his offer of a board; he'll move the threads from here into that.

Adding them to the HOARD topic will help us remember to add it. As usual, your style is great and fits perfectly with mine. I hope of all hopes that you feel that you have the time and skills to do commercial work, I would live the competition! You can borrow all my ideas, no problem.
I'm warning you, post one more figure projects and BANG! your getting your own board! Your move....
We just had this discussion, I am not a business manager, I can barely manage myself let alone steer anyone else. I can support and help you guys get setup with your own little sales area of RPGnow just like I do.
This forum is to inspire and support everyones individual efforts, not to create a team of designers. And everyone knows, organizing artists is like herding cats ,that are wet, and it's cold out, and all you have are like spoons to heard them with... JIM
I definitely see where you're coming from. Besides, sites like RPGNow, as far as I can tell, are pretty much ideal if you want to set up selling stuff by yourself, and I must admit, I wouldn't mind giving it a go myself once I've got a few more of my original designs ready to go.
Remember, not working as a team isn't the same as actually being in competition. Say I set up a small press section on RPGNow selling my figures. Even if I design them in such a way as to be easily compatible with Jim's (which I daresay I would, simply because it works so well), we still have different art styles, and people are bound to have their own preferences as to which they like. On top of which, it's a simple matter to differentiate oneself by doing minis that Jim doesn't have planned, or won't be doing for the foreseeable future, thereby covering an empty niche in the market rather than directly competing.
Is it easy to set up a publisher's account? Are there any up-front fees to deal with or particular prerequisites?

My way of thinking is to have a collective body of artists that could develop skills and almost more importanly share filiters/texturing skills; create a library of layers/textures/filters which can be used by all the artists.

Jim: I actually do too many ranges for just one person, but I'm a bit mental.
I just don't want to get all tied up with money stuff. it's really easy to get setup to sell on RPGnow, no fees, no nothing. You can sign an exclusive seller agreement to get a better percentage on sales.
The vendor tools take some practice to get used to, but it is not difficult by any stretch.
I'll start a new topic for this. Sorry for hijacking the thread...
COOL YETI! I have at some point owned all of the Heroquest games and expansions, and doing a print and play versions would be cool. I plan to do the same thing for Battlemasters. JIM
Wow, I did not expect one little yeti to trigger so much conversation. Personally I do not think I would have the time or stamina to do this commercially. I must admit that I like doing this, and I love the community that Jim has built here on the forums, but I am much better at short sprints of creative production rather than the long run.
I have a couple of more figures already inked that I need to color in the same genre. There is an Ice Gremlin and that frozen horror thinggy from HQ.
squirmydad: Fast? Today is only the 98th of March...

marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.
Mar 24, 2020 11:31:07 GMT -9
squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016
Mar 22, 2020 18:40:25 GMT -9
Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.
Mar 22, 2020 18:39:00 GMT -9
Parduz: well, then may i ask if we go pre 1994 so we could get rid of Bungasconi...
Mar 22, 2020 17:06:54 GMT -9
ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.
Mar 22, 2020 8:19:43 GMT -9
Vermin King: I tried, but it hasn't worked so far. Maybe I will try again
Mar 22, 2020 4:46:23 GMT -9
Parduz: pls reboot the 2020, then.
Mar 22, 2020 1:07:14 GMT -9
Vermin King: Rebooting the whole system fixed it
Mar 21, 2020 5:47:43 GMT -9
lightning: and yet you are able to post here @vermin king?
Mar 21, 2020 5:34:43 GMT -9
Vermin King: Panic -- when you've been sick during a pandemic and have to self quarantine, and then wake up to no cable or internet
Mar 21, 2020 3:48:57 GMT -9
Parduz: ... and some upper lip mods? Perhaps?
Mar 20, 2020 14:44:52 GMT -9
marcpasquin: @vermin King to be fair, different hairstyle, costume type and about 15 years in between the 2 roles.

Vermin King: I feel like an idiot. Didn't realize that Vanessa (Deadpool) was Inara Serra until last night. Duh
