Vermin King: You can see the turrets about ten posts above, in my photos of the APC type vehicle. I was going for more of an angled look, but they are just too difficult to fold at such a small size. The tricky part is trying to figure out a way not to have blank backs...
What about a "ring", cut out from a "non-rect-cone" (hope you get me)? Simple, angled.
WaffleM, i really like your last design update. I just want to say two things: - Given the overall "blocky style", i think that the "wheelguard" armor should look less "curve" and more "blocky" (i mean: the kind of gradient etc give the impression of a half "bubble")
- I miss the added "3D" given by your unique designe of the vehicles in MeckAttack. The lower part "popping" out from the sides was simply brillant, to me.
After much delay, the new vehicles are almost completed. All designs have been tested and recolored. This set will include two different body designs for each of the three size classes (Light, Medium, and Heavy) with three different movement platforms for each (wheels, tracks, and hover pads). This set also includes a slight tweak to the previous Mech Attack weapons to make them a shorter than the original ones. All I have left to complete are the instructions and production photos for the cover.
Here are some of the combinations for the blue vehicles:
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?
(Well, obviously I *can* since I have, but I am VERY excited about these).
I have one request.... If you used my Kiladecus Motorworks technique, you could make these for 28mm. If you want, I will send you copies of my Cricket and Camel so you can see what I mean!
EDIT: Actually, if you wanted to release these as 28mm models, and were willing to, I will send you the "Era Of War" banner, and you can release them, all I want is to be able to use the images in my rulebooks, and a free copy, naturally. You keep 100% of the profits! ;D

Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
