A boy, some cardboard, and a desire to make something Orks could use to get across the battlefield

Started with some thin card

and more thin card

Fold and glue that card into something shaped vaguely like Optimus Prime

Forget the enclosed back section, as it would prevent the boyz from firing their guns wildly everywhere

Driver section should probably be enclosed

Something along the lines of a Garbage Truck

Too much open space up front

Divider creates windowed sections

Side doors would probably help as well

Some reinforcements along the back also add more texture

Can’t decide which way the back section should be facing

Buildable Warhammer 40K Aegis Defense Line Prototype

This is the most basic version of the defense line. Printed on card stock and mounted to foam core. Perfect for filling that fortifications slot on a shoe string budget.

It stacks easily, is the simplest to assemble, and works pretty well.

There is an additional version with support struts, to make it more stable.

I’ve also worked out additional layers of detail to be glued to thin card to make it more 3 dimentional.

I’ll have pics of the other versions and a Printable PDF so you can make your own soon.

David Wears, a.k.a. Kiladecus, was kind enough to spend some time coloring the great Bobba Fett.

I tweaked it a bit and ta da !!!

I absolutely stole the idea for the miniature from Jose Dominguez’s Brian Fett

Serene Fist Set 2 Ninjas and Samurai a plenty – New Paper Miniatures by Okum Arts Review

Serene Fist Set 2

This second release to the Serene Fist line, by David Okum, is even better than the unbelievably great fist set.

Even though it’s advertised as a 48 figure set (12 poses in 4 colors each), there is actually and unadvertised “Easter Egg” layer with an additional 11 models, 5 of which are unique to that layer. I won’t spoil what they are, but there are some whimsical and some mythological in the mix. This brings the set up to 59 figures for the measly price of $ 2.50.

Another nice feature included in this set is that the text is included as it’s own separate layer. Allowing you to disable the text when printing and saving you some ink in the process. It’s a little feature, but a nice one, and I appreciate it.

Personally, I’d love to see these Serene Fists become the industry standard for paper models. With fantastic art, multiple color choices, and the ability to disable text, I see them as the standard the competition should strive for.
