    Edit: On cults now: Target Master 'Gun Guy'

    After realising stupidly that the seige battle masters don't have giant crotches and instead have a hinge, I've set about creating a new reusable template for seige battlemaster style target masters. Scales well with original and the parts are even interchangeable which is kinda cool.

    Need to find time to make version 2 of the target monsters I already made now though...

    It's a copy at the moment but looking to add a few variants like handle that hinges into thee body and limbs that articulate.

    I'll upload to cults soon.

    Nice. This is a really cool idea, and I could see numerous characters being made from this.

    It's the new basis for the rest of my target monsters but I wanted a reusable starting point.

    Yeah. The starting blocks are really G1! I thought shockwave when I first saw him assembled.

    Oh!! This is awesome!
    This is probably the most immediately useful protoform you've made yet.
    If you post it on cults, it'll be an instant buy for me.

    I always post the templates/protoforms for free. I learn a lot from seeing how stuff works and it always takes an age to get going and transformers usually share some elements. Having faster starts benefits us all right?

    I cannot agree enough with this statement, your stuff had been some of the best for me whenever I needed to practice on tinkercad

    So glad people use em!! I tend to create them for my purposes but I know I would love a parts library where I could drag and drop the basics and just scult what I'm actually trying to make without building it all from scratch every time!

    Here's some photos of the variant version. Articulated legs, articulated arms, the handle swivels at the back and ticks up into the body and fits snuggly under the barrel.

    I'll take some pictures without my office in the background and get the files up onto cults over the weekend hopefully.

    Target Master 'Gun Guy'

    Up on Cults now, free of charge. The ball joints are pre-applied but the file does include the raw cubes for hips/shoulders and the cutout parts you need if you really need to remould the bits and cant use whats there. Takes a long while to render that difference boolean on my laptop though...

    Working on another guy too because when I said shockwave, I thought it would be cool but the profile wasn't right with the barrel coming up over the head. Wouldn't be bulky enough.

    I'll post a version when I've sorted how the arms will pin the legs in place but I'm happy with the first test run.
