Vermin King: You can see the turrets about ten posts above, in my photos of the APC type vehicle. I was going for more of an angled look, but they are just too difficult to fold at such a small size. The tricky part is trying to figure out a way not to have blank backs...
What about a "ring", cut out from a "non-rect-cone" (hope you get me)? Simple, angled.
WaffleM, i really like your last design update. I just want to say two things: - Given the overall "blocky style", i think that the "wheelguard" armor should look less "curve" and more "blocky" (i mean: the kind of gradient etc give the impression of a half "bubble")
- I miss the added "3D" given by your unique designe of the vehicles in MeckAttack. The lower part "popping" out from the sides was simply brillant, to me.
After much delay, the new vehicles are almost completed. All designs have been tested and recolored. This set will include two different body designs for each of the three size classes (Light, Medium, and Heavy) with three different movement platforms for each (wheels, tracks, and hover pads). This set also includes a slight tweak to the previous Mech Attack weapons to make them a shorter than the original ones. All I have left to complete are the instructions and production photos for the cover.
Here are some of the combinations for the blue vehicles:
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?
(Well, obviously I *can* since I have, but I am VERY excited about these).
I have one request.... If you used my Kiladecus Motorworks technique, you could make these for 28mm. If you want, I will send you copies of my Cricket and Camel so you can see what I mean!
EDIT: Actually, if you wanted to release these as 28mm models, and were willing to, I will send you the "Era Of War" banner, and you can release them, all I want is to be able to use the images in my rulebooks, and a free copy, naturally. You keep 100% of the profits! ;D

marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016

Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.

Parduz: well, then may i ask if we go pre 1994 so we could get rid of Bungasconi...
Mar 22, 2020 17:06:54 GMT -9
ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.
Mar 22, 2020 8:19:43 GMT -9
Vermin King: I tried, but it hasn't worked so far. Maybe I will try again
Mar 22, 2020 4:46:23 GMT -9
Parduz: pls reboot the 2020, then.
Mar 22, 2020 1:07:14 GMT -9
Vermin King: Rebooting the whole system fixed it

Vermin King: Panic -- when you've been sick during a pandemic and have to self quarantine, and then wake up to no cable or internet

Parduz: ... and some upper lip mods? Perhaps?

marcpasquin: @vermin King to be fair, different hairstyle, costume type and about 15 years in between the 2 roles.
