I put a human sized cyclopsbot in with heroes for the may submission. I've also have 2 giant sized ones with german markings in the works. The 1st is a larger version of the original with additional details and the second is a completely new drawing in a more dynamic pose. I'm excited to see an imagined army of german clunkers marching across the battel field.
I've also a cleaned up version of the walker that I'm going to paint up and mark for the allied forces.
With any luck the May Horde will have heroes, robots, and zombies a plenty for a brutal Weird War Skirmish.
It's a little less retro now, but retro robots are designed soo badly it's hurts me. Their lack of realistic joints makes it difficult to translate motion, or pose other than standing there.
The original sketch unintentionally had two different elbow types, and the head was too far forward. The head position would have been okay on anything with a human like neck, but I picture the robot with more of a rotating head mounted on top of a disk, and not having the range of motion that a human neck would, so it looked off, from the perspective of how I imagined it.
I have 2 more droids I just sketched out as well, but they are decidedly less retro and more Deathwalker like. I'm going to hold off on finishing them for now, since their not part of this months theme, and I may use them for a future project I have in mind.
I started to color the back art when I realized I drew it incorrectly. The outlines matched up, but which shoulder is forward doesn't. I knew something didn't look 100% right, and it took me until now to realize what it was. I've already redrawn it, but it will set me back a bit.

He looks great.
Will you be offering him in different poses? I'd like to see the marines turning a corner in the derelict space ship, and meet up with 5 of these guys. Wonder what the landing party will do as the robots reboot ...
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

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.
