I already have a Tripod up on my Shapeways store, but I felt like doing another in a size that's more appropriate to either 3mm or 6mm gaming. It's vaguely Victorian-esque, because I'm just not able to model a cool organic one like from the Tom Cruise film (which is easily my favorite Tripod).

I didn't like the head, so here's an attempt at something more evocative of the 1953 and 2005 film versions.

Yeah, I'll give those a shot! Do you know how tall they were supposed to be in the comic?
