    Nice looking Rakasta! Any chance of one wielding the traditional War Claws?

    What was the intention of having the yellow hands drawn over the black ones? (not saying they look bad, just curious)

    And do I detect traces of Trigak in that Smilodon?

    Thanks!

    Hey guys, there's been some great minis in this thread! I've been working on some I'm going to upload here soon, but I wanted to know: Is there a stand size everyone is using? Whether in pixels, inches, or whatever? What's everyone using? Thanks for the info!

    Hi, Diodric! Great to see people interested in this really fun and creative project! One good guideline terms of measurements is probably to check out the printable minis on stands done by our founder and Original Poster, Dakaran. There I think the idea is to fit comfortably into a space of about 90x140 pixels.

    When I started making minis, I used the standard avatar size of 91x117 pixels. For bigger, essentially horizontally oriented monsters, I would allow myself 117x117. Then, for clarity’s sake, I started making two versions: a normal-sized one (91x117, 117x117) and a large-sized one (273x351, 351x351—three times larger than normal). Lately, though, I’ve slipping and making them any old size—the last one I posted was (93x117) (larger version, 280x280).

    When all is said and done, I should think about 91x117 is your best bet. On the other hand, Dakaran has so far had no trouble that I can see resizing our posts to fit his stands, as needed. Heh, you pays your money and you take your choice!

    Tann,

    Those look great! I love the giant turtle!

    As for the "gold hands," the more I look at them, the more they look like War Claws!

    Thanks again! And keep 'em coming!

    Keep up the good work

    Tann, thanks for the response. Here is a quick sample of a mini I did. I'm not quite finished with my minis yet but I wanted to let you know I was still in progress. This is my character, Diodric Dragonfyre the halfling cavalier. You may have noticed I changed my avatar as well, lol.

    Uh, thanks, but please tell the Archelon ischyros that I'm already in a committed relationship. It's not you, it's me. (I rather like the detail on the lower shell in your original! Plus great shading on the fins/flippers.)

    Very nice Remorhaz!

    An actual dinosaur! Woo hoo! Sadly, my PC's have been trapped by gnolls in an orc cave for several months, and have shown very little interest in freeing themselves, so thus may never see the majesty of the Isle of Dread. But I'm still hopeful! (that's where the paladin's war-saber-toothed-tiger is waiting, and I can't WAIT to give it to him!)

    Wow! That is a truly frightening Carrior Crawler! Well done, Melthiem!

    Hey, Torath, how was the Turtle supposed to know you wasn't a playa?

    Eh, not all that fond of the Remorhaz. It looks...unnatural. The S is for Sucks.

    On the other hand, cool Carrion Crawler, Meltheim -- but I gotta confess, I like even more the Baazrag, which I hain't never heard of before, but really like the drawing of.

    SO glad to see this thread back.

    Thanks!

    The Baazrag is confusing since there's totally conflicting source material. in one, it's presented as a lizardlike critter with a bony "shell" over the face and back, and in another it's an overgrown ape-man thing. I went with the lizardlike version, since they're good for swarming (which is my favorite when doing outdoor combat)

    Really? Where's it an Ape thing? Terrors Beyond Tyr has the version you drew. I can't find an ape (or any other) version, but you might have books I lack.

    I love the ALEAX's expression. Now to run to the Fiend Folio to look it up!

    Edit: I love the out-stretched finger. Looks like he's about to tap on the shoulder to interrupt his latest snarky comment...
