    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Australia ratios are off, more like 60% sand, heat and dust, 15% things that want to kill you, 20% flies, 4.5% kangaroos, 0.4% people and 0.1% civilisation... I'm not sure whether my order went through the tracker today or not....my first paint job will probably be rocky th ee dragons

    3d Printable Sci-fi Buildings for Tabletop Wargames

    I may or may not be in, unfortunately we need to replace one of our vehicles, so not sure where my funds will be up to. I do have both DLP and FDM printers if you want some test prints done...

    The Skyless Realms -3D Printable Tabletop Models

    In my experience PLA does have a smell if you're in a poorly ventilated area - not as much as UV cured resin, but it can still be noticeable! Of course, the other materials do have more of a smell. regarding printer size, I have a rebadged Wanhao Duplicator mini (or something like that, cost me $150AUD new) which has a total footprint of no more than 40cm (16") square - I have it on a 12" depth shelf which is open front and rear and there is plenty of space for it, only problem is that is only has a 6" unheated print bed which just isn't quite big enough for some things (and also limits printing to PLA only). Bigger than the print bed on my Anycubic Photon though (DLP Resin printer, cost about $620AUD new, much more expensive to run though), although it has an even smaller footprint, and much more of a smell.
  6. I liked the fact that the entire "Frodo and Sam walking" half of the two towers was condensed into only the relevant bits, that entire section of the books i tend to skim read, if i don't skip it altogether...
  7. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1106216129/ancient-worldship-corridors/description Project for 3d printable space elf styled wall sets etc., and a gaming mat . Creator originally wanted to do this as injection moulded plastic but the prices were way to high.

    Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project

    I'm happy to see impact making the effort to get these minis out there. I've been happy with everything I've received from impact so have no qualms in backing them. It is also good to see the special pledge level for torn armour backers, although I'm sure a lot of people won't be happy add they've already lost money there. Im not sure if I'll be able to really afford anything, but I've backed, and if it gets to the point of ordering and i can't afford anything then the small amount I've put in will be a donation to impact.

    The Lost Dragons: 3D Printable Fantasy Dragons

    I've heard good things about that printer, as it is an i3 clone you shouldn't have much trouble. I wouldn't recommend the anet printers from experience, which printer depends a lot on how much fiddling you want to do to get a good print

    The Werendor Watch

    This - from my perspective some of the names and descriptions were more of an issue than the actual sculpts

    Secret Weapon - Tablescapes Dungeons: Mines

    Regretably at least half the Australian friendly kickstarters I'm aware of use this particular company to send things out. As was pointed out to me in the comments there was another convention this weekend just gone that i wasn't aware of. My perceptions of the company are biased due to other dealings I've had with them outside of kickstarter fulfullment. Once they get things running with kickstarters they are usually pretty good

    Secret Weapon - Tablescapes Dungeons: Mines

    Unfortunately the AU distributor is rather full of it, the convention referred to is one of the smaller ones, and they'll only have a minimal stand there (unless something has changed since i last looked at the trader map for wintercon). I think they're just too busy with other project fulfillment

    What makes a good war game ?

    I think the problem with the pointing out a completely new force issue is that every time I've seen it done there have been significant balance issues as certain abilities, equipment etc. are worth varying amounts depending on the other abilities, equipment etc. that model may also have - for some of these (such as a long-range rifle is much more valuable in the hands of a model with a better shooting skill) there are blunt instrument ways of fixing it, but other things require many more complex tables and flowcharts to determine exactly how two abilities may interact (and doing some software testing recently, i can guarantee that players will see an overpowered combination that you won't necessarily see when testing). That said, Counterblast did have rules around generating your own characters from preexisting templates - so not completely flexible, but there was some ability to customise exactly what you had.

    Project cancelled/failed to fund, they've gone for pre-orders on their website instead - look at the latest update for details. This includes the fae archer, which apparently is a 70mm model...
