Multiple Mini headgears

I wanted to show briefly the kind of thing you'll be able to do with multiple items in the same slot in the upcoming Warrior Mini (and eventually HM3):


What you see are four separate Headgear items stacked and moved on top of each other. The tank-goggles on the helmet are separate from the WWII helmet are separate from the cool modern shades are separate from the mouth mask. I think this is going to make some really awesome effects possible. I was up late last night thinking of all the possibilities once you bring various Insignia into the mix, too -- imagine building your own custom logo from basic shapes layered and sized, with pre-drawn icons to go with them. Or you could take a simple triangle logo shape and mask it to the helmet, to get a chevron effect on the headgear.

The more items I add to this thing in more slots the more excited I get to really explore the possibilities.

    Or since you can resize things you take that basic triangle, or circle, then take a sword from the handheld items scale in down to a tiny size color it just right and move it to the circle et al and wallah you have a nice custom logo.

    Love it and I’m glad you have the bottom face covering it looks really good.

    Looks great! And my compy got an update so I can now use flash 9! So I’m looking forward to HM3!

    Not sure it has been mentioned but what about camo face paint as a “mask”?

  5. Alex says:

    I have a question about masks: can you apply them anywhere, in any size you can? So for example, could I have masked half of the modern shades, then had another pair on top and mask the other half (To create a kind of Two-Face type character.)

  6. Jeff Hebert says:

    That’s a good question, Alex. Unfortunately no, you can only mask objects with other objects. I can’t think of a way to do what you’re suggesting there.

    Hey Jeff, i just thought of something. I know you said you don’t like having to do extra poses as it means having to redraw everything, but does it when we can just resize everything to fit? Can’t there be just a few different poses, different body shapes but facing the same direction, like in HM2, and the user can just resize the items to fit? Or does the user create the body shapes themselves by resizing the body pieces?

  8. Jeff Hebert says:

    Yes Luke, that’s the basic idea of HM3, that there’ll be one basic pose that you can size and move and rotate to make into multiple poses yourself.

    Alex i found out using lares i use the steel half mask to make cyborg or two face type guys hope that helps

  10. Alex says:

    Yeah, good. I understand now how it works. I was a little bit puzzled by this “mask”. Now I understands. Cool, I can’t wait to try it. (Yeah RJ, the half cyborg face is cool, I must admit. )
