I've been doing other things lately, as any of my past patrons may know, but I haven't been able to shake the paper minis completely. I just played some games of Kings of War with a friend and all the ideas came flooding back!
I would like to take another whack at producing some paper armies for miniature war games. I also just missed being on here and interacting with my paper mini peers!
I realized I didn't post all of my free files on here. So please find all of them below. I'm thinking of putting the paid versions up on drivethru rpg. The Games Crafter versions barely sold at all, but I think it may be a pricing issue. If anyone has any suggestions or advice, I would love to hear from you.
I was also hoping someone could fill me in on the details of getting my own board on here.
Great to be back! Let me know your thoughts

I think they would do a lot better on drivethroughrpg then on gamecrafter, cheaper, can print as many as you want, etc. these are still some of my favorite miniatures out of all my paper, plastic and metal figures.
We've had some recent discussion about selling on DTRPG for Antohammer's range of paper minis, including pricing of downloadable sets, so those discussions might be worth checking, and then maybe ask anything that relates directly to what you had in mind which isn't covered there.
In terms of the Games Crafter versions, it may be there isn't as strong a market for pre-printed minis on cardboard, for which there's also postage - and possibly import duties - to pay, compared to downloadable minis that can be printed-off as and when required after a single payment.
pavaro honestly the best advice I could give is use reference, and try to think of the simple forms underneath. The way i chose to represent the chain mail was to first draw horizontal lines that followed the forms of the body, that is roughly cylindrical, keeping the perspective in mind. I then drew some small diagonal dashes in between these horizontal lines to represent the individual links, alternating the direction of the dashes for each row. I found this to be quite effective in representing the general feeling of the chain mail. Since we're always trying to represent forms in perspective, I made sure to gradually increase the spacing between these dashes as they got closer to the center, and then make them closer together as they reached each end of the cylinder. This gives the illusion of form. Here's an example: // / / / / / //

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.

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!

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