Wardogs miniatures?

Postby JHaygood » Thu Oct 23, 2008 6:40 pm

I recently got the Wardogs rules and on page 5 is a line up of the units in the basic Wardogs ruleset. Sweet stuff. Are these miniatures around? Are they already 3D models?

I have been hacking with Rhino for a while and I am wanting to do some 'generic' mech and tank 3D models and have them printed. If someone already has some models I like....

Anyway, keep the up the good work guys!

Thanks,
Jay

Thanks for the good words mate. The models on Page 5 are simply 3D renders using DoGA and photoshop (Ian can correct me if I'm wrong on that)...nothing has been made into miniatures but I'm definitely not against it either.

The artwork is the product of some really talented guys...so all the kudos in that department go to them. :)

Who me ? Oh yes that render. Its nearly every model (3d) I for wardogs. I dont usually make ground based vehicles... ships usually so I was some practice I got in there...

The renders sort of what some call a clay render, very fancy radiosity effect. Unfortunately the package I use does not lend its self well to proper 4D models.....

It's still in processing...so may take a while, but I've gone ahead and submitted an idea for generic multi-size 6mm ased mecha and generic tank/apc/engineering vehicle ideas over at the Liberty and Union League- Wargames Factory. They've also got a couple of ideas up now for power armor and size 2 mecha types with a bit of kitbashing. But since they're plastic, shouldn't be too hard to manage once they are released.

Hope you checked out the "modular generic starship" thread while you were there?

I got some of those modular starships at Wargames Factory on pre-order.

Have you tried shapeways with those "clay renders?" As long as it is a watertight .stl they can print it.

I am getting some of my own designs printed there in steel. That way I already have masters and then can cast them up!

I got my own miniatures printed at Shapeways and they did a good job! I would definitely recommend you send some of those wardogs up there. You can make some money and we can get some good looking mechs.

When you are there search for the the designer coines23. He has some wicked stuff as well.

Let us know when the wardogs get there..<GRIN>

you can check out Irrational Designs too, he's got four nice mecha that would work for mid to small size units...including a decent quad. I'll end up kit bashing them a bit when I've funds to purchase such. :)

Still no WarDogs posted to Shapeways? I have printed my own designs and have begun to cast them with Alumilite. Having a good time! Need to see those WarDog printed too...
