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.
Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.
May 13, 2020 11:02:25 GMT -9
squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
