    Looks :cooool:.
    I think without the gunbelt and the addition of the Mali skirmisher 'horn' (for the gunpowder thingie) it would be perfect.

    That's a good idea.

    The horn is fairly simple, but removing the gun belt might be more tricky. Give me about half an hour.

    Having looked at it, the gun belt would require a complete re-boning, as I can't import the infantry model into Blender as it is. The only other option is trying to skin it into something else.

    Nah, better keep a gunbelt as a gunbelt. But the horn would be a nice addition.

    Okay then, I'll add it tomorrow. Maybe once I've done the German explorer, I can come back and remove the belt.

    Maybe make the belt brown with fringe and it'll fit in better. I definitely like the idea of the horn. Maybe also a big knife or hatchet in the belt.

    Either way, great addition. I was definitely hoping for this unit for a while. :goodjob:

    As far as I know, this was his 1st.

    I've given-up on Chugg doing my Explorer project, so I had to outsource! :p

    Perhaps we should consider outsourcing the B-10 project? :lol: :mischief:


    This is a very good explorer - we should use it in the Colonization project if that ever gets off the ground! :thumbsup:

    If I remember, I offered to make these. :p But yeah, this was my first unit.

    I think a hatchet might be a bit much, but a knife would be cool.

    In other news, I've almost finished the German explorer. Just getting some screenies and touching up the skin. Much simpler, this one.

    I'm attempting to do so at this time... many people have requested this plane... just need to get it off the ground.

    Germans are practicle people... practicle/simple uniforms.
