Re: Interest Check: Paper Standees
 
I'm bumping this thread because I've moved, leaving my collection behind, and now more than ever I'm feeling the usefulness of this project.

Would anyone be willing to help me with this? All a volunteer would need to do is take a decent picture of the unit and send it to me via discord or email, and I'd take care of the editing.

Very cool project! I can certainly see the value of this. Perhaps you should reach out to the guys making the 3d prints of Heroscape figures since they are already photographing each and every figure at a high resolution in order to create a 3d mold? I bet they have a large inventory of photos already.

I did reach out - the photos they had they deemed unsuitable and taking a picture of the 3D model left a lot to be desired.

I suggest using the trifold so the paper minis will have depth.

Like this:

That’s definitely an option for the single-spaces figures, but I don’t know if the 2-spaces would work.

I've considered working on a project like this for C3G. I don't have a ton of photoshop skill or time though, so it's always been on the backburner.

Good luck though, I think this is fantastic.

Thank you! I just contacted Troll and Toad to see if I could use their images for a free, non-commercial project. I’ll post here when I get an update.

Sorry, I meant to message you - close up, the hexscape models looked...not good. I'm not sure if I was doing it wrong or downloaded the wrong thing (I downloaded the most recent pack from you) but it looked not ideal. I wanted to see if I could get some pictures of the minis before I fell back on those.


EDIT: Well, shoot. The 4th MAss figure I looked at was just a jumble of polygons. That looks a lot better.

I had to adjust the brightness and contrast, but here is a 4th:

I know they are not high resolution, but if you shrink them down to tabletop size I'm not sure you'll notice the difference.
