Today the fifth "Steel Warriors - Battle for Empire" ( 5 years edition ) promotional free set were published.
This set contains six papers minus taken from the next "first" album ( its publication is expected between December and January and it will contain 64 paper minis. 32 basic infantry Steel Warriors Motorized Infantry, 32 basic infantry former emperial Keno infantry squad, 8 vehicles and paper minis crews. probably several artworks, perhaps stories and other material ... ) and six promo paper minis fron the second album ... Two Steel Warriors' androids and four ex imperial shock troops.
all figures are unique, as already said.
Finally, bayonets are back in the paper trenches of near ( or very far ) future.
In the dead microscale edition infantry is the size of 18 mm. Now the size of the infantry is 25 mm. The old 3D technic for new minis are too small. unfortunately
From 2007 to 2009 infantry was 25 mm. In 2010, I reduced the infantry size by 30% (the height of the soldiers was 18 mm). This will fit the more infantry and vehicles on the sheets. So is it possible to make models of houses. On a small table can fit the whole area of the city. But the details is also very much reduced. Soldiers are like little cockroaches. They become difficult to distinguish. I stopped doing microscale miniatures - back to the good old 25 mm
Old 3D-models from the Microscale Edition 2010 (dead set)
Now the first Tomoko's album ( a kind of huge set with arts, illustrations, setting, background, history .... ) completion is forthcoming. After the first two basic infantry sets ( 32 unique figures each ) there are eight 3D vehicles.
The WIPs are above, and the new ones are here:
To celebrate the holiday just passed and the approach of this personal goal, Tomoko shares with us a new 3D vehicle model ( the second free 3D vehicle model that he offers ), the imperial military car "Aktas" doomsday edition, in promo format.
After almost two years it seems that my friend Dima is back in "business".
Paper minis are a great real "passion". Can't stay without them, in the end.
And Tomoko is a very great paper minis' author, imho. So he opened a new personal page on VK ( I call it Russian facebook, I can not explain it better ): Tomoko's Paper Miniatures
Even in this case, the page is in Russian language but on the right of them some information are in English. "Documents" is the magic word. there are four files ( vk.com/docs?oid=-92217457 ). Three in pdf format ( 65 MB, 17 MB and 18 MB ) with his new paper minis and one zipped ( 170 MB with all his old works ).
The old files are beautiful and good but the new ones are amazing ( it's not enough ). Later I'll try to post some images.
OK. The following are paper minis' images ( bad pics, I'm sorry ) that you can find in the three pdf files. There are also several crew paper minis and vehicles ( these are gorgeous too, imho ). And this is just the beginning of his new project.
After this I will not bother you more. Now you have everything you need for deciding and evaluate.

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
Mar 22, 2020 18:40:25 GMT -9
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

lightning: and yet you are able to post here @vermin king?

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
Mar 21, 2020 3:48:57 GMT -9
Parduz: ... and some upper lip mods? Perhaps?
Mar 20, 2020 14:44:52 GMT -9
marcpasquin: @vermin King to be fair, different hairstyle, costume type and about 15 years in between the 2 roles.

Vermin King: I feel like an idiot. Didn't realize that Vanessa (Deadpool) was Inara Serra until last night. Duh
