Hackbarth: Very nice work! The Reign Of Steel cover photo made me laugh out loud.
I'm a fan of Josh's mechanical work--I still remember the Ebbles Miniatures forum thread where he posted his articulated Jotun build and shared his joint designs there, and the dancing Jotun photo he posted to show them off was pretty funny.
My robot horde thus far: The Jotun, with two machine gun modules instead of the cannons, two Type 18, two Itoyo, a Sentry, some fixed point weapons, and lots of character drones, plus sorted vehicles and buildings.
I made a One Monk Terra Force Wolverine, after all it goes well with Ebbles robots: As my Robots, the articulation is done by way of magnets. So the turret can spin forever without stress and wear of the paper. Since all my robots use magnets, I can mix and match, behold this metal abomination and his hatred by all biological life forms: And I can combine any weapons I have, so lets put a twin machine gun module and a 12 units rocket launcher: Run, meat, run.
I would put the magnets on the top, side panels, and on the hatches bellow, to put interchangeable armament and utility packages, like the underwing stores of the Crotale.
I put them on the Shrike, the Star Wars T-Wing and the Elite Armada Spaceships. I can mount any Ebbles robot weapon on these ships, I printed a page of weapons from the Maginot firebase to mount everywhere I put a magnet.
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

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

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...
