To all: No... I'm not dead! :mrgreen: I'm gonna continue my work today, if all goes well.

EDIT: Just started on Matilda again... now imported the model from Robot Wars Arenas of Destruction into 3ds Max, so it'll be much easier to get a better picture of how she looks :smile:

Bad news... I had to reinstall Windows, and so my external hard drive, with all my applications and programs, got formatted by mistake... luckily I got all my 3D WIPs in the cloud (OneDrive), but I've got to download the 3D programs again.

It's been five years... and counting! Soon we're entering 2016, and I'm since 2010 still working on this XD I will hopefully get some updates of the WIP soon.

Six years and counting!!! XD Well... I will do the half of Matilda, and use the symmetry modifier to build the other half. :smile:

Now when the new versions of the house robots for the 2016 series has been revealed... I'm just itching to recreate those versions as 3D models instead of the old one's. So, if anybody knows where to find reference images or, even better, plans/blueprints for the new designs, I'd be delighted :smile:

The extreme development hell and the apparent lack of interest from anyone else rather remind me of a lot of my own projects.

I'll have to agree on that one. I've pretty much given up hope on getting plans for the new house robots... so I think I'm sticking playing the older games and focusing on the older series instead, as those are my favorite wars (1-4).

Robot Wars did reply, although they said the plans for the house robots were highly classified...

Bloody hell, that took a while. It doesn't surprise me though.

Right now it seems I got two alternatives. Either wait for the new house robots to come out as toys, or simply stick with the legacy wars...

Dear community...

It makes me kind of "frightened" to see how LONG this WIP topic has existed... like, 7 years? Wow...

Anyways, I thought I would blow the dust out of this topic by saying that I AM working in Blender on a brand new model of Matilda right now! I will be making the house robots after all (no deadline set, yet...) as they appeared in 2016 to the present day.

Right now my biggest challenge is to actually model them, as Robot Wars themselves through Facebook replied to me, telling me that the plans for the house robots are highly classified...

But I won't let that stop me. I WILL be making them :smile:
Best Regards,

Skull Kid

Well if you skin them.. you can export as obj file, and port it into RA2
Apanx created an app that converts obj designs into bot files
