I tried to be quiet during the voting, but this was a tough one.
1. The Dragon Turtle is beautiful artwork. Don't have a need for it, but it has to be on the shelf 2. Neo Starships is a wonderful concept with great art, and don't forget all the ancillary stuff 3. The Market Stalls is another beautiful submission with lots of doo-dads that make it special 4. Kings Road is also phenomenal. Great layers, but probably a victim of being similar to mproteau (Paper Realms)'s other tile sets. Which doesn't mean this set isn't equally special 5. Three Penny Bridge is such a cohesive whole. Taking the various models and combining to form a partially fortified, structure laden bridge is wonderful 6. Modular Darkfast Dungeons is gorgeous and very well thought out.
I am so very impressed with each of these. Very nicely done
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

You're too kind, Vermin King - I am really chuffed to be able to be in the running, but I am really happy to see the voting favor the entries it did. It's nice to see I backed a winner!
printableheroes really shows off how amazing paper miniatures can look on the table - I would never be able to find the time to elevate my (currently non-existent) painting skills to that level! The starships uptrainfan89 made show off how paper isn't just for flat vertical miniatures. They add dimension, and are wonderfully crafted. And soaringraven consistently presents builds with amazing levels of detail at a scale that would make any player's jaw drop.
Thank you everyone who participated this year in the Papercuts. I hope everyone that has any reach into their own little slice of a gaming community has shared links to the forums and let people know that there are great resources to help fill up their tables!

A tie?!? Wow, that's great. You folks really put me through the ringer this time. Such a close shave. Anyways, thanks to everyone who voted for us, thanks to all the participants, and thanks to Eric for once again hosting the Papercuts. Congratulations to uptrainfan89 for winning the competition and allow me to express my appreciation for many of the entries this year. It's a blast that we won the competition, too, but seriously there were quite a number of entries that would have deserved the honor just as well.
And thanks once again to everyone who took their time to give feedback or praise for our work. It's great to win something, but it's more important to know that someone out there likes what you do, maybe even is inspired by it. I'm often too lazy to give feedback myself and therefore I'm especially happy about every response we get.
Thank you mproteau and verminking for your comments. I´m so thankful that there are people who like what we do. I really want to post more but it is still difficult for me to write in english. Especially all the paper crafting vocabulary. But I love all the great results of your work and I have great plans for some of your models. I hope my husband won´t go crazy with all my ideas.

You know, the stats say "we" have nearly 3K memebers but we got only 34 people voting for "Best of Show" and the other categories have similar numbers.
I wonder what would happen if people could only download the submissions if they voted.
BTW: Congrats all. This year was full of tough choices.
Yeah, but most days see around 35-45 members and admin staff actually visiting the Forum, so 34 people is about an 85% turnout, far, far better than most nations manage for political elections
As for rewards for voting, they don't really work all that well either - same as making voting compulsory - as you end up with people voting from spite, or randomly, not for the "right", that is sensible and considered, reasons. Sadly, none of this is easy to resolve, witness the recent UK and US post-voting chaos, still on-going, amongst other places.
Fully agree about the difficulty of the Papercuts choices this year though; personally, I thought everyone who entered had already won!

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

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!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
