    Default Homemade turret plugs

    Hi,

    It seems "RivetWars" won't see any further expansions. This is a shame, I really loved it.
    We wanted with my son to build/conceive new turrets (there aren't enough in the base game and extensions).

    I have seen this :
    http://www.shapeways.com/product/HE2...ionId=59827132
    , does anybody else has conceived surch turrets/plugs.

    Does anybody has done a card for this one ?


    With my son we wanted to design one-use aerial plugs thet would be like large bombs.
    We played two games allowing to buy aerial plug that were : gaz bomb, dart bomb, and etherial (anti-armor) bomb.

    Any suggestions ?

    PS: if anybody want to sell their turret i would gladly buy somes !

    That flamethrower plug was designed by me.

    I could definitely come up with a few more if people are interested in them.

    I haven't made a card or stats for it yet. I was going to come up with a bunch at once and have nice cards made.

    Very nice design.
    I nearly ordered one or two !

    I started designing those five one-use plug : Darts, Gaz, Magnetic (anti armor), Atomic (Large aera) and a one-use anti-aerial rocket.
    But i am not really good at 3D design !!
    I have the cards (without drawing) and am trying to balance the cost/effects.

    I'll see about remodeling it to get cost down some. I think i could knock a couple bucks off if it's more hollow than it is currently.

    I'm thinking of running the flame tubes right along the side, so they won't be prone to breakage also.

    I'll see what i can come up with in regards to your ideas though. I love making stuff!

    I have a proper mini size, generic 3D Rivet person model I've made as well. I made a bunch of mustaches, hairstyles and some clothing for him (female version will be next). There is a "Bat Rivet" hero i made from my template character, but i need to properly pose him before i put him on the shop. He'll end up being about $18. Really not much worse than people charge for the rare KS exclusive characters on eBay, and totally unique!

    Did you buy these? Do they fit/ are worth it?

    I might make a card for it. My next step after getting the youtubes up and running is ordering a custom deck of my old cards. Might need to beef them up. Maybe I'll do a kickstarter or something to sell a few extra copies.

    Honestly, the overall dimensions don't look right on Shapeways now. Let me reupload the model to ensure it's the right size.

    Yea, I'll see about fixing the sizing tonight. 0.2 inches doesn't seem quite right.

    I corrected some errors and modified other things :
    - Remove plug
    - Added unicity (hero) to Large Area and Very Large Aera Bombs
    - Added Cumbersome to Mega bombs : unit max move reduced by one, and 90 degree turn at start or end of move.

    Darts and rockets :

    Did this end up getting fixed? I'm considering buying one but I am scared to waste money on something that doesn't fit. PS: Are you considering making more at some point or just the custom flame thrower?

    Wow! I was just going to post that I have been seeing some steam punk stuff on Shapeways that might be usable for Russians and Turks.

    I will support whatever items you come up with. I would love Russians and Turks as was planned.

    I will be ordering.

    I got you covered on this thread: http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/...-Mission-Cards I have a link towards the bottom. Would love to get that bumped. I want to print some of them for my new youtube channel and run with them. Might need some help filling up the deck.

    I suggest replacing atomic bomb with neutron bomb. These bombs can be very localized and don't damage your game board!

    I am totally unsatisfied with the "atomic" name. I am looking for a more "steampunk" name.
    That's why I choose "ether-bomb" instead of "neutron-bomb" (damaging more individuals than infrastructures.
    I would gladly receive any suggestion.

    Asatru_Artist, what software did you use to model your turret ? Blender ?

    I am adding two rockets (land plug version of the aerial ones).

    I'm sorry. I don't think this was ever answered. Did these get fixed? Do they fit in the plug slot now? I would like to order one eventually.
