Rosa Miniatures and Games has been commissioned to produce a game that will feature Steam Automatons (robots) set in the Victorian Age. Think HG Wells and Jules Verne" steam engines, pistons and gears. All models need to fit on a 45mm diameter base and be no taller that 65mm. We are looking for three very different models / concepts and will award three prizes. This contest is for a Crab like walker (6 to 8 legs / claws) we are really open to your artistic creations. Selected models will need to be meet 3D production standards (I would read Shapeways guidelines) and be delivered in a STL file (production) and a rendering (for advertising).
There has been some question as to what an Automaton is. This term was used to describe "robots" run using analog computers. I have attached to concepts: one from the 1890's Sci-Fi book and the other a scratch built model. The images are of bipedal walkers. This contest is for a multi-leg "crab like" creation.
The purpose of this contest is for me to evaluate artist for a future bid on large number of Automatons
“I would like to communicate better, some of this was my fault. I really appreciated the PNG rendering as it has a high utility in any future promotions we decide to do. ”
