Thanks. I'm doing a bit of a rush job on them, so the detailing on them is not as precis as the first one. But that first one was over detailed. When they are printed out on paper at a much small size you wont see any real difference. I still need to do the nuke launcher and then I can add the different legs. Each mini will get a reverse image of it with a different set of legs. So that's 10 troops with one commander.
I like them a lot but, Tommygun, at least the last one needs a different legs position. The perceived baricenter of the figure + weapon is really too far from the right feet to believe it can stand still.
I do have three alternate legs styles I have just finished. I needed to get the upper bodies done. The far left legs are the originals and the two middle ones I'll use for the missile launchers. They're not perfect, but I think they will get the job done.
They're done, but I have room for one more, so I'm going to add one more "Character" to the group. I'll try and do the small version of Mek Quake. Not the big Killdozer, but the more humanoid version. I hope to have the full size group in a pdf soon. The images below are reduced sized png files.

Incredible well-done paintjob here, Tommygun. I dig the "WIP"-pics, where you can see, how you are sculpting your Robots with pure paint. No tricks here. Those interior cable complexes ! And always your preference for "used" equipment. You love metal scars, bullet holes and oil smear, right ? ;D
Thanks everyone, I think of my style as well loved treasures. I'm tempted to do the larger size Mek Quake, that is a 3D Killdozer, but I have way too many projects going on to start one. I imagine their weapons as really over the top, so I'm not sure what rules would work for them on a 28mm battle board. A 5 meter nuke template or a pizza plate for the energy gun? I guess I should of had a Mega Flamer too. Well have fun with them and post pictures if you have the time.
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

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.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
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
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
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?
