:D Fibrous pinkish humanoids, for instance. The vehicle looks decidedly un-boarkish methinks. Make it more of rough Mad Max, and less of lean Bladerunner?

Here's a new version, a bit bigger (3cm long, 1.8cm wide).

Also there's a WIP huge vehicle intended for metal, 6cm long.

I like that big thing! Nice tracks and wheels in particular. Why not scale that down and use that on the little one? (Not scale it down literally, well you know what I mean...)

I prefer little stuff with oversized wheels myself.

I could do something similar, but all those side details couldn't be done in plastic. Also side details have to slope so they don't stick in the mould.

I like where this is going...

Agree the tracks on the wagon look a bit 'flat'. Maybe turn it into a half-track?

Put wheels at the front. Then you can utilise the higher sides at the back of the vehicle to put some taller tracks on it. Bit like what you've done on the Biggs-wagon by using different height cogs.

Just a thought...

Is it really a good idea to make those axe-wielding maniacs so… familiar?

Cro-Magnonoids with big heads & teeth is not a protectable idea. Only expressions of ideas are protectable.
Just search google images for "ogre" or "orc" to see how many people have used the "big head & teeth on a humanoid" archetype.

It is the expression I'm talking about. The pose.

(Okay, I've now checked and I can see a few differences.)

Alright then lads, it's live, let's see if there's interest.

If anyone has any Perk types they'd like to request, let us know.
If we pick up a few pledges from here, we'll start spreading it around the net, otherwise, it'll fizzle and die. :-)
