Big SALE 9 Years, 5 Months ago  
Rabid Fox,

Interesting, I Have Wondered Just how Difficult Sci-Fi Paper Accessories Might be to Put together, (And The Time Involved)... I Have Assembled a Few Paper Fantasy Items here and there and the Difference From One Design to Another Can Be Dramatic...

Anyway, I'll Be Curious To See Some Pics of that Stuff in the DF Setting When You Have Completed Them...


MLV, they are not that hard to put together if all you do is exactly what the instructions say.
I just have a thing about having to replace items just because I did not take the time to reinforce them to be able to handle a few decent bumps and bruises and maybe a serious one as well.
Anything that is going to have a mini walk on it just receives a bit more care to make sure there are no accidents in the middle of play.
I played once at a guy's house in Maryland and had a cardstock catwalk collapse under a couple of my soldiers, and they and the catwalk proceeded to crash down on some of their squadmates.
I was none too happy and one could imagine my soldiers were not as well.
That incident was/is part of my dislike of cardstock terrain.
Now, I am stuck in a situation where I cannot get what I need for Sci-Fi MM except by turning to some cardstock designs.
That means I use a lot of reinforcing plascard and in some cases just print the stuff on bright white inkjet paper and then laminate it to foamcore.
Some of y'all out there may be able just get by with #110 cardstock though.

I Really Like the Idea of Laminating the Stuff to Foam Core... (Especially for Anything that will be Load Bearing like Cat Walks, Landing Pads etc)...

I Have in the Past, Created Cat-walks and the like out of Plastrux Girders and the Plastic Mesh that you can buy for Needle Point... There are Plenty of Interesting Plastrux "Joints" to Construct Cross Supports and so forth... I Had Never Considered Using the Plastrux AND Foam Core AND Printed Textures... There Could be some interesting Possibilities there as well...

Oh, hey saw this thread... yeah here is the Link to the Barloz from First Light...
wwgallery.pcinfoman.com/index.php?cat=10025

I use Both Mels and WWG, i actually have been putting some of the props from Mel's (Ebbles) into various DF layouts becuase there is so little Furnishings from other sources, tables, Chairs, Beds, computer consules, etc. The biggest constraint in making more is Time.

The new CoC woun't really allow to post to mel's but have a gallery there to, the intersting thing is the old set from Mel/Ebbs is the same size, and width as DF... i have used them together before, just nover put up shots of it...

I have never had a problem with collapse, but then i use plastic minis... metal may be heavier.

The new CoC will allow for it as long as you are spotlighting DF product rather than trying to encourage others to buy other companies' product and not DF.
At least that was how it was explained to me in a PM from the moderator when I asked.
Go ahead and put up the pics GS!
We will all enjoy them!

Slight miss communication, i can't post to Mels Site(the Barloz might be a stretch even), becuase his Gallery is more directly linked to sales part, than the WWG ones.
it touchs a little to close to the
Commercial postings (postings that link to commercial sites for the express purpose of advertising, especially for products and services not related to Dwarven Forge or the gaming industry as a whole.)

While it could be said to be the industry as a whole, i think with some of the other threads and the sentement of the competition of DF and Cardstock it may be a little to close.... If i make more, set ups with them, i may post them but as it is right now, i just don't have any, they were set and designed (mels stuff) to be tied to a specific group, The sith and so far the PCs haven't entered a Sith Base... that will change, but they went off course they got to scared and didn't want to go the planet that he had just come from, and went some place else.... but soon they will be heading to the Sith base and we will see the DF and Mel intergrated, after tonight there will be a set up with DF and WWG. I got the pics of one of the WWG ships in a DF set up, just haven't posted them yet.

The other things don't actually have any pictures with them together (the Ebbles sets with DF) they were all done long ago and don't have them anymore, got deleted. Mels stuff is in use right now in the pictures i have been putting up mainly just the add-on buts like the tables in a post, the Computer stands in a number, the Kitchen thing in another etc.

They are the few back ground things in a lot, i wish i had A the time to make more, or B wasn't using most of i have spent the time glueing together in use in other projects...

The purpose of the commercial postings section of the CoC is to guard against blatant advertising, not to impede discussion of products and accessories that may be of use to the Dwarven Forge community.

For example, a posting that says, "Visit our website for 10% off our gaming products" would not be acceptable, because it does not add to discussion, and serves only as an attempt to generate sales. However, links like the one Ghenghis Ska proposes will be allowed.

It's a fine distinction, but one that I believe will become clearer over time.

I think the point is to keep advertisers out, not prevent us from talking about other stuff. Makes sense to me.

I have been meaning to make some more of the furnishings, and such so that might be the project for this week.
