I signed up for the forums back in January and sort of forgot to make an introduction. Been gaming since around 1980, and into papercrafting (mostly non-RP related builds) for about 5 years. Recently completed a city build and a cemetery build for my AD&D 1e campaign and after all that paper crafting, got curious about paper miniatures when we did a module with giants and had 1 giant figures and used dice for the rest.
Currently in five Patreons (OkumArts, Printable Heroes, Paper Forge, PaperMini and Paper Realms) for miniatures and cutfiles. Cardboard Warriors has been a great help to me in my quest to build figures for the entire 1e Monster Manual so I will be ready for anything the players do!

It is MOSTLY Dave Graffam buildings, but there are a few from other creators, Fat Dragon being the only one I recall. I still need to do the walls for it. But considering how mind-numbingly boring it was to make the walls for the cemetery (it is only 18"x24"), I've yet to work up the willpower to make them for the town which is 40-something inches by 80-something inches (Dave Graffam's city streets map). I have the sections printed, buuuut...
That looks amazing! Thanks for sharing the pictures. I'd love to see some games in progress!
Finished thoes before the paper mini bug got me, so only ones I have (attached) have metal and plastic figures. Because of my discovery of paper minis and papercraft discussions over on the Facebook Papercraft Enthusiasts group, I picked up a nice Epson Eco-Tank printer (ET-2750) and a Silhouette Portrait 2 cutter. It may take me a couple years, but I am trying to make figures for the entire AD&D 1e Monster Manual. Had good luck finding things so far....and thanks for the pig-faced orcs! I do NOT acknowledge the big green orcs or the hunchback gnolls that escaped from Warcraft.

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.
May 13, 2020 11:02:25 GMT -9
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?
