OK - it's just a rough preview with draft lineart, simple textures etc... a lot of work still needed. But after couple of hours of designing and tests black-and-white cardboard prototype looks kinda decent and this "project" started (slowly although! to be funny, so who knows...
=>>> Anyway - what's your judgement?
These vehicles (there is more...) supposed to easy-to-build flat/2D addition/support for prepared Sci-Fi series, but as recent tests proves 3D conversion might be possible, so any comments appreciated... suggestions... ideas... wishlist perhaps?

Nice looking little track. I don't use 2d vehicles, so I'm not your real market for these, but I love the art-work you've put into this one. My one criticism is that the blurred highlight lines on the forward section look a little odd, I think it's their placement away from the edge of the armor plating. It may also be that I'm seeing this image at 3x the size I would see it on a gaming table and it probably would look fine on the tabletop.

You are probably right! These "parts" are view gaps/slits (saw something like this on some photos). But these should be rather smaller and in 30mm scale it could be quite tough to assemble - definitely should work on these and get rid perhaps...
New approach for design process
Now I'm "sketching" various machines / vehicles as filled outlines. With help of some written actions/functions it's much faster, even faster than in Sketchup (for me at least) and gives quick preview of general idea and shape, plus at this stage changes/modifications are silly easy...
So here are first drafts: one and two crew scooters...
EDIT: Of course soldiers are just sample/option, there should be possibility to put other including players own minis
I LOVE the scooters, but I have only one criticism... the One-manned version shouldn't be a rifle. How is he going to steer. I think if you mount the weapon on the vehicle itself (as it appears to have in the two-manned version), then the pilot could fire the scooters weapons from the handlebars.
If you *had* to give him a weapon, then it would be best to have him holding a pistol, so he can keep one hand on the steering mechanism.
Now, the two-manned (pilot/ gunner) version is PEFECT!
I build your tank the other night, and to me, it is beautious, even in 2D.
Then again, I am a HUGE fan of your work.
My favorite aspect of your Werwolf pack was your scenery/ruins. I even found one of your 60mm-based walls that I used with my early camel prototype pictures... I will try to attach it here.
I don't care what you do, your work is AMAZING!

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)
