Chris was nice enough to talk me through recoloring the Prowler to match my Kirchner (and my Jotun...sort of). I finished it up yesterday. As you can see, I need practice on making wheels. I sanded down all the edges, and ended up repainting them. I think next time I get a wild hair like that I'll add some tread to them before I do the painting. Because the hull has some large flat areas, I reinforced them with cereal box cardboard before I put it all together. Other than that, the turret, and the wheels, it's all straight from the printer.
I also took a couple of shots to show how I make my magnet-washer joints:
This is roof (upside down) the inside of the joint, under the weapons turret. The cylinder under the washer (above, when it's right side up) is just paper I wrapped around the magnet and glued together when it was the right circumference. I glued a piece of paper across the bottom of the stubby little cylinder it made, and glued the washer under that. I threw a couple of strips of paper over the washer and glued them to the inside of the roof to help hold it in place.
This is the topside, looking down into the socket where the magnet will fit.
And this is the magnet, which doubles as the turret's pin:
I couldn't resist using a bamboo barbeque skewer to make a shaft for the gun mount, so the guns can travers vertically as well. I capped each end with the shaft with a couple of small plastic disks, and painted them black.
And here it is in the linup. I was surprised it turned out a little smaller than the 6x6. It always looked so burly, I thought it would be bigger. (Hmmmm....next build ideas...)

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

gav: seen them was thinking a bit dodgy, that's cleared up. I take it the plastic ones I am seeing are the same.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: Found the video, uhm, I don't speak German but I think he likes them.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.

shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
