I just saw a pattern I liked and repeated it over and over
As you probably know by now, I don't use 3d model software, so I am stuck counting pixels, using geometry, and wielding a sledgehammer. Been a long week, so I am not going to get to this until tomorrow ... if my brain is clear. In the meantime, back to the sekibune

Finished the angle fix. There was a small discrepancy between frontal and the rear angle, nothing significant. The angle should be within 1-2 degrees of the proper one now, bigger or smaller depending on the thickness of the paper, the glue used, and the unavoidable paper wrapping.
I did small tweaks to the texture at few places. Nothing significant, you did the base well.
If you are in a hurry, print is as it is. Otherwise, I will post the printer friendly version in a few hours.

Even though my initial geometry came from a tank, I should be okay with the way the drive and road wheels are set up. Side skirts seem to usually have a shorter front fender than the rear fender, so I think it is fine, but the front track angle seems a bit steep. I might come back and change that.
Thanks for fixing that angle and doing the line-art file. On my third attempt, I called it 'good enough'. Thank you for not being satisfied with 'good enough'.
I can design things, but my strongest area is grabbing ideas and getting a rough plan that can be hammered into a model. My next best area is modifying. One of these days I'm going to have to learn a 3d design program
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
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.
