I wanted to thank PrintableHeros, Paper Realms, OkumArts and the community responsible for the Forum Hoards for their time and effort. I was having a MAJORLY bad time last week and as a distraction I decided to work on printing the monsters for an upcoming module I plan to run in my AD&D campaign. 8 hours later, I had all but a tiny hand full of rarer monsters located, printed, cut (and cutfiles located or made) and glued, ready to go. This hobby is relaxing as well as useful and I needed that last week! Keep up the good work everyone!
Hey @forestb! Welcome! If you have any cutfiles for things that you can share - this is the perfect forum for that!
Distracting myself by building papercraft (and sharing here) literally saved my sanity when I had the worst job ever (for me.)
I will look at the ones I have made. I am NOT good at it, some places my perforations became full on cuts due to me forgetting to take out the bottom line after copying and flipping one side's cut lines...that sort of thing. That's why I'm in the Paper Realms Patreon, to get cutfiles that are good. But there should be a couple I can shoot up and share for hoard stuff that aren't TOO badly made.
I understand what you mean. I was dealing with my dad's estate last week, so by day 2 of bureaucracy I needed a break. I went for the mini making route...figured I'd crank out a couple pages and calm down. But then I was missing a mini that I had to track down here, or no cutfiles there, or....full-on got lost in it. When I finished up, I was relaxed...and had two module's worth of figures! (D1 Descent into the depths of the Earth and D2 Shrine of the Kuo-Toa for AD&D 1e).
Praise the Eco-Tank printer...ink levels only dropped slightly for what would have been a 5-10 cartridge replacement run...and I need a new Curio cutting mat!
So worth it. Especially for people like us printing color saturated pages. The price difference in ink pays for the printer relatively quickly depending on how much you print (I suspect you print a fair bit)
i was never born, i just am, and i've been dead for years.
Hi! I'm Harry, formerly "Coyotepunc" here on the forum. I am a hobby addict; I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Manchukuo.)
I will never go back to a cartridge based inkjet after getting an Eco-Tank. Had it since Christmas, still on the original bottles of ink that came with it (I've used maybe 1/3 of the ink so far). In the process of making Mystic Mountain's Coliseum build...so far, it is printing like a dream and using very little ink.
Two of the first section I completed (mostly, hadn't put in the plugs on the sides of the stairs to hide the hole yet). I've done 4 of these, and have to do 12 of the curved segments (6 for each 180 degree end) and set up the base board and the noble's review stand
A group of the figures I made when trying to distract myself. Not all are edged and I made anywhere from 1-20 of each (one for the worm, 4 for wyverns and 20 for the rest, depending on how common they are).
And my personal assistant, 'Helping' by sleeping on the cutting mat under the magnifier lamp (I swear sometimes he spends almost as much time under the lamp as a McDonalds Hamburger )
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download
