    I’m beginning to think of this series as an audiobook, looking forward to the story and occassionally realizing its a game report.

    @Paint it pink
    I don’t know anything about publishing, but I’d thought Pint on Demand would have a higher overhead than traditional mass paperback per book. With lower demand I wonder how much profit could be had.

    @Rober Armstrong
    No rush on the book, I’ll have to read them and I’m not that fast a reader. Went with used books for “Jirel of Joiry”, its cheaper. Looks like 2021 will be a year of book reading.

    I wanted to get into Frostgrave when it first came out, but d20 put me off. Those dice roll forever, never seeming to stop until they rolled off the table.

    The Black God’s Kiss
    What is it with these books, are they such a classic that they sell for nearly £40?

    I’ve decided to get the £5.59 Kindel version. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Read some reviews of the red Sonja books on Goodreads and I think I’ll try out the first book. I like one desctiption that says it’s dark, but others says its a formulic story.

    £39.38 + £4.90 shipping on Amazon is a little too much though.

    Sorry, not into vampires. The only books I read that had vampires (Noble Dead Saga) was about a female vampire hunter charlatan, I can’t remember the name of. I remember one scene from the first book where she and her partner stops by a farm and wanted to buy some bread, the people there brought out a steaming sack of freshly baked bread and tried to rob them. The sack had stale bread with hot water poured over it to make it seem fresh. One of the vapires was a street urchin called “Ratboy” I think, he escaped and was the main antagonist in the second book.

    Thank, Robert. I assumed they’d have Red Sonja in the title and all the results I had were cgraphic novels. If they’re unmemorable then I might not bother. I was looking for some non epic fantasy with a female main character.

    I think I brought this up on the wrong forum. My models are more towards scale modellers, though some have used them for wargames. Tiny Air Combat was pretty much my most wargame friendly 3D models so far.

    I guess I’ll stow this idea away for another few years. A little daunted not seeing any 3d printed minis 6mm and smaller. Tom’s Modelworks is the closest to the models I have but as far as I know they print and sell them rather than sells stls.

    @DSG
    I did a quick calculation years ago and decided selling STLs might be less time intensive. Printing the models and selling them would be a full-time job on top of designing them.
    I’m very impressed by current resin printers and the quality they can do. Recently I’ve printed some 3mm minis and rifle barrels and sights actually printed without much issue.

    I’m pretty fixed no not using patreons. I don’t have the time to put into fulfilling something like that, not even a kickstarter. I’m just looking for a platform I can offload my existing files and contribute to “Thomaston buy a boat fund”.


    @andrew
    and everyoen else as well. What do you think about the demands for 3D rinted vehicles? There’s a few who already sells larger scale 3D prints of tanks and there’s a lot for spaceships but I haven’t seen much for micro-armor tanks and ships.

    I don’t have a 3d printer, so I may be way off the mark, but I’d have thought you could justify pricing the files higher precisely because the buyer can print as many copies as they like.

    Pricing STL files is a weird topic. I’ve been told 3-5 years ago the rate for a 1/285 aircraft comission was easily $100-$150, but also depends on the details. That’s for manufacturers but 3D printing complicates this. I’m not sure if the pricing had changed since resin 3D printers became more common and more people are designing and digitally sculpting.

    @Thuseld
    I like exploration/open world kind of games and like watching the world grow as new locations are discovered. This method doesn’t look as good as the big map but is so much more expandable.

    @DSG
    Steal away
    I have two ways of making buildings. Plastic strip of desired thickness with one end filed down for the roof before cutting them down into individual houses. The other and what I used here were sculpted on with putty once the hills and slopes were done.

    In the future I’d only do the terrain and border forest, everything else (houses, fields, groups of trees, bridges) will be mounted on masking tape so the locations can develop and reflect seasons.

    The scale is my usual too tiny to be sensible. For actual size the bases are pond bases from Warbase.
    https://warbases.co.uk/product-category/bases/terrain-bases/

    With 3mm minis for comparison. The walled town on black is an early prototype using both methods of construction.

    The prototype town started off as terrain for Adeptus Titanicus where the titans/knights would be 4-6mm tall. Funny how projects morphed over time.

    Correa is living up to the Marine myth.

    Green Peace should be joining up with NVA soon for the murder of those trees.

    KR-16 is definitely generating quicker kills than 5Core. 5Core’s more supression feels like it fits the period more with the uncertain body counts etc.

    It’s true a lot of the stuff on these would melt if baked.

    You’re the second person who used the baking method. You can get very similar effect using old tea bags.

    That chopper looks very tempting right now but I have a larger pile of tools than I have unpainted minis.
    I went ahead and used up the last plastic rod, along with not doing the outer wall on that town was just enough to finish the second town.

    I should have mentioned the plastic rod I used is 0.5mm diameter. Working toothpick to that size sounds like a lot of work and getting them to the same size is going to be tough.
