Just to give you a quick summary, each month I'll be releasing a new Champion, starting with the Templar shown above. It's a new and exciting concept, with each set offering the same character in a variety of poses so that you'll always have the perfect mini for the situation!
Starting at tier 1 support, you'll get the character in the following poses: • Battle • Standing, at ease • Mounted on a horse • Sitting • Unconscious
You'll also get a mini of the horse in an idle pose, without a rider, and you'll get a small portrait of the character to stick on a character sheet.
At tier 2, you'll get the same character, but the layered PDF will allow you to choose the colours you want. The Templar tier 2 PDF has about 3 million options for the character, and about 500 for the horse. You'll also get a line art version of the PDF for those who really insist on colouring stuff themselves!
Tier 3 is where things get really interesting! The PDF at this level opens up a whole new realm of possibility, allowing you to pick different hairstyles, choose the character's weapon and adjust details on their clothing! I'm not entirely sure how many potential combinations are possible with the tier 3 Templar PDF, but I'm quite confident that it's well over a billion! There's also a line art version at this tier, and this one includes all the various hair and weapon options!

Thanks! yeah, it is quite a large task, but the most time consuming has actually been the monster task of assembling the PDFs. Fortunately, I've begun to automate that part of it, and the more I add to that arsenal, the quicker and more painless that part will become.

At the above links, you'll be able to download a free sample mini of each of those characters. If you like what you see, you can subscribe and get access to all the poses! High tier supporters get customisable versions of the minis, being able to choose from millions of colour combinations at the $3 tier and being able to change details like hair styles and weapons at the $5 tier.
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: His eyes must not be as old as mine

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?
