For Board Game Geek folks, I just got my first microbadge submission approved!
Rivets fan — Tiny Bopper, for fans of Rivets, Microgame #5 published by Metagaming in 1977.

Here it is in all its 16x16 pixel glory:

Created from this image in the original rulebook:

I've also started work on kitbashing master models of Boppers from super-deformed Gundam parts. If all goes well, I will attempt to scan these models to make files for 3D printing and see how that whole process works.

Excellent! What great little game! I even have enough of the original minis to field one side. (I use Germy's 2mm Micro Minis, available from GZG, for the other side.)

Keep us informed on your progress.

Great news! I have been looking for the miniatures for years!

Back in the day, buying 1 or 2 forces was too expensive for my budget, and the quality of 70's small scale sculpting didn't help my decision. Sad now that I don't have them though.

Definitely will do updates on creation progress if this project actually works out as hoped!
