Hello, everybody! I glad to show you mi new work: first mini set of "Iron age" It's here:
Why is it the "Test" set? So, my printer is broken is crashed (really, with smoke and fire ) and I wasn't able to print this exoskeleton and to get rid of any mistakes. And I need your help with testing of this machine! If everything is alright, full set will be released soon! (Special gift for "helper" - mech of another corp. with weapon, of course ) Thanks you for attention!

The slots on the torso are not the same size on the front and the back. I don't think that's right. I think the problem is on the front arms. I'm going to try the larger size (from the back)
Also the Leg fronts and Backs aren't the same size (when I mirror the cutlines from top to bottom, the don't align properly/match. When I release the cutfile in a few minutes you can see the variation for yourself.

Oldschooldm, you did really big job, thank you!
The slots on the torso are not the same size on the front and the back.
Ok, I have got rid of it.
... it on to match the shading...
Oh, mine, I forgot to flip it (Bad guy inside me: Alex, if you work so careless, I'll cut your arms off!)
Tiny slots are a very, very unstable mounting system
Ok, I'll try to fix it.
The figure spent more time prone than standing.
I'm sorry again, that's all my mistakes! So, 2.5D robots are my weak point. Oldschooldm, thank you for testing. I'll make something tor you soon. But, as I've got, to present another bot isn't a good idea. May be you want something especial?

I was happy to do the test for you. If you ever do a fantasy figure or set, I'd be happy to receive a copy, but this is not required in any way. This community has already given so much to me - I just like helping out.
Oops! I originally forgot the cutfile link above for anyone who wants to play with this...
I like the direction you're going here. I might can help with the slots. I've learned from building Mech Attack figs that if you cut the slots in the shape of a very deep "V" instead of a deep rectangle then when you push the pieces together they tend to lock onto each other.
As for the torso... maybe use a glue-on polygon/pyramid shape to give the front of the torso more depth? The 3D shape would form the chest and "cockpit"...
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.

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?

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
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
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...
