Deep in the Golad Mountains of Domaar, in the vale of Prin Guls between the Night Elven realm of Khimzul, and the High Elven realm of Auborlon stand the Watch Towers of Prin Guls as a first line of defense against a Night Elven attack.

 

This is my first serious modeling for my 3d Printer, and is designed to turn an ordinary Pringles can into an Elven themed Watch Tower. These are the first pieces in what will hopefully be another modular fortress.

Yes, those are Anhurians manning the battlements right now, as I only had one lone elf painted and readily available.

Looks great!

One Elf with a bow will be a menace to all invaders!

 

Even if they are from the Lost Valley of Chee Tohs

Thanks All. It's been fun figuring this out. 

Got a coat of primer on it this morning, will be working on it tonight and will try to post some more WiP pictures.

Excellent! One must always stand vigilant against attack by the armies of Dor' Rito and invasion from the Barbarians of Ruffle Ridge.

LOL. I decided to use Prin Guls as a clever way of saying "Wargaming Terrain Made with Pringles Can". 

When I went to post it, I thought about how Froggy always gives a little back story, and so I borrowed some names from the new D&D campaign setting my son and I are working on to give a little story. 

But now, after your input, I'm thinking that the whole area between the Night Elves and the High Elves is going to have to have snack food themed names.

So I primed it with a red automotive primer, then drybrushed it with several successively lighter shades of craft paint.  On to painting details, and prettying it up.

Also started designing and printing some variant pieces.  Not happy with the roof, though. I don't think it needs to be that tall, and it takes too long to print.  In the process of redesigning it.

      Since it's arrival last month, I've been experimenting with my first 3D Printer.  Today marked the first finished painted projects that were made on it.

      Several Giants, designed by Duncan "Shadow" Louca.


       
       

       

       

       

      The Gourdlock, by dutchmogul:




      One of my favorite finds while randomly searching for STL files, the Dwarf Rock Star, also by dutchmogul.


       
      Completing my Frostgrave Bestiaries is an eventual goal...here's a simple crab from Rocket Pig
       

       
      Tortles seem to be the new hotness since their introduction in a charity event tied to "Tomb of Annihilation".  These guys are a mix from Fat Dragon and the wonderful DM Workshop


       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      The last are a murder of Redcaps, again designed by DM Workshop.  I swapped out their weapons to give them some variety.

      Inspired by getting the docks done I did some more work on an unfinished watchtower project. 
      It is a hexagonal pencil pot that I sawed in half. I put in balsa supports then layered coffee stirrers for the roof. 
      To defend it I have added foam core board annexes either side of the door. 
      I need to figure out how to do a lip all around the upper part (which will lift off) to disguise the joins. 
      For the door I am probably just going to stick some magnetic material to the back of a couple of one sided resin doors so there can be a broken and unbroken option. 
      Will paint or stick on the other doors and arrow slits. 
      I haven't put it on a hill, wanted it to be versatile so a fairly limited wooden base. Will landscape it but keep it relatively flat. 
      Will also add the ability to stick in artillery, I have the dwarf organ gun from Mantic and think that would be ideal as a 'deck gun'.

      So one of my November goals was to work on (or even finish) the DDS 2014 tower ruins .. If you look at the WIP thread, you'll see that it took me a LOOONG time to get this done finally.. 
       
      I'm not completely satisfied with the way the treasure came out, and learned a lot from applying the sand without painting the base Bonesium first, but over all, I'm fairly happy with it...
