    I post about far-too-expensive plastic fantasy soldiers on an Internet forum, I guess "lack of self control" is pretty much on the job description...

    Yeah, I'll pass. It would make me uncomfortable to have that big of a backlog right now, and while I like the birds I don't like the riders that much.

    Quick question did you print at 95% or 100% scale?

    I printed at 100% scale, it fits better with the size of models now. True 28mm I would go with the 95%.

    Those look pretty good. Better than I had expected actually.

    Did you print onto printer paper then glue to cardstock?

    For the money they are excellent value and you can print them more than once so you can aleays make more

    Ah, I just printed directly to cardstock, makes it really easy. Not every printer can do that unfortunately. I may try printing directly on printer paper though, if you think it is sturdy enough.

    Agree. Printer paper will probably stand, but it will look weird after a while.

    Been awhile since I've been able to paint since I've been on travel because of work. Here is a mortis engine that I finally finished. Let me know what you all think! Tried lots of new techniques on this one.
