I updated the deluxe 2-D cutouts to include 2 Snow Troopers and 1 Rebel Trooper.
I also have a Vader, Agent Kallus, General Grievous, and Battledroid coming real soon. Pretty soon, I should be able to retire the old one-sided cutouts.
Sebastion Steel made an awesome looking TIE Advanced model. I haven't printed one out yet, but I can't wait to see what it looks like flanked by two standard TIEs, gunning down an X-Wing or three! You can download a copy from the Star Wars starfighter-scale page.
In other news, Tracy and I got us a hound dog! His name is Mason - he's a rescue from a shelter, and he's really sweet, but he can be a handful at times. I have no idea what his life was like before, but it's pretty obvious he was neglected. Hopefully, we can get him to calm down and relax long enough for us to get a decent night's sleep. :)
Wouldn't you know it... as soon as I got better, my wife caught the flu from me. We're both better now, but man did that lay us low for a while.
Thank you, Justin for your $4 donation - I greatly appreciate it.
I also have some new 2-D cutout miniatures on the Star Wars Character Scale page... I tweaked the "Scum & Villainy" file and added some Rebels. Enjoy!
DeviantArt has changed how you download files from their site - so much for my bright idea of hosting files there while using this site as the main interface. I think I've found another webhost that should get rid of my recurring monthly bandwidth problem... but I've already paid for the year on Doteasy, so I'm a bit torn as to whether I should make the switch now or later on.
In other news, my World of Warcraft account was recently hacked. I'm not really mad or angry at the person who hacked me (I mean, it's just WOW, it's not like it was my bank account or anything); I'm mostly just curious how they pulled it off. I've never had anyone access one of my accounts before.
A whole lot of stuff has happened recently.. some good, some bad.
In other news, I updated the "FAQ" page to provide some guidelines for people who want to modify the models on this site for other games (for example, making them larger for Fantasy Flight's "X-Wing" game, or tweaking the textures so that you can have starfighter squadrons in a variety of colors).
A very special "Thanks" goes out to Timothy for his donation... throughout 2015, this site is brought to you by his generosity!
There's a new model on the "Aliens" page, and it's a big one... enjoy!
Some of you may notice that some of the models now say "mirror download from DeviantArt" under the download link. That's a temporary redirect to my DeviantArt page until I can figure out what to do about my monthly bandwidth problem. Some people have suggested that I should switch to a blog, but I really like the look and layout of my current site. So... I dunno. I'm trying this with a few models, and we'll see how if it pans out.
Another of my old models has been updated. Head over to the Star Wars Character Scale page for a brand new version of the Speederbike! The old model from 2003 has been retired.
Special thanks go out to Bob for his donation - the 2014 operating costs for this site have been fully paid for!
Upsilonman has created a Z-95 Headhunter to go along with TIE Phantom and Defender in the Fantasy Flight game. You can download a copy from the "mercenaries" section of the "Star Wars: Starfighter Scale" page.
Thank you, Jimmy, for your donation! Another $5.80, and I'll be set for 2014 (after which point, my hosting cost goes up, and I doubt I will be able to rely on donations). Those of you who do not have adblockers may have noticed that I put a couple of ads on my site... we'll see how that goes. I don't really like putting ads on my site, but I like paying for the site even less, so that's pretty much that. :) I will adding more ads and switching out ones that don't generate any traffic over the next few months. If you see any that you absolutely hate, please let me know so I can replace it with something else (also, let me know why you hate it so I can avoid putting up similar ads in the future).
