Guys let's not cock up John's thread here and stay classy.
There's plenty of space in the proxy thread elsewhere if we want to discuss other manufacturers

agreed.

John, you now I will be spending fairly big (as usual) when the new Eloi come out.

I always appreciate your custom.

I have deleted the link post for the reasons Jimmy has stated.

My point was and I think I'm not alone. We rather see something else besides "Scary Egyptian Zombie 'bots" … ;D

I personally would love to develop a 'race' of robots, but that would be more mecha meets scrapbot rather than space Egyptians.

I really quite liked the robot infantry that you designed a little while ago (the ones that were 15 mm, originally). Maybe Scrapbot is the best name for them? (Self-assembled machines arising from the ashes of a world with advanced artificial intelligence…?)

My original plan was to do a whole 28mm scale range of them. Not sure yet what will be done now though.

Are those infantry size, or more small mech size? I have a hard time imagining infantry sized ones would be strong enough with those thin legs and torsos.

Well, in 15mm and 28mm they would work. In 6mm or 3mm the limbs would need some thickening.

Very Battle Tech … but not bad designs … 8) I have a real "problem" with GW Knights that look like a guy on Power Arm. I like the more 'bot look. Like their robots had …

Note that my designs were meant to be humanoid sized infantry models, in 28mm scale they are slightly taller than normal humans.
