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"...
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)

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.
