if you modeled these before, baked them on the texture and then painted them...

90% done, question - normalmap will be enough to make these wires at back look 3d ?
I think the wires need a little bit more contrast. Do a burn on the daarker side, and see how that turns out. :-)

I must be blind or something, because I don't see any different between the bake version and the non bake version.

Looks good, the AO seems a bit oversized on the smaller buildings though, mainly the llt and defender

If you can barely see the difference, that means its just right.

Its basically a transparent baked shadow below the buildings, to create a better fitting into the surround enviroment

Yeah, I've been doing this for groundplates manually in IW, faking the occlusion really makes the building feel more part of the environment...

I'd imagine its also less resource intensive than realtime shading, though both methods combined = sexy.

I really like the bottom left one that actually has the anatomy of a spider. I would expand on that some if you could. Maybe a gun or missile pods on the abdomen?
