  1. So......Is this on the shelf of shame or have you been on vacation?? Interested to see it complete.
  2. I saw the kickstarter for those and yours came out quite nice. Do you have any scale shots?
  3. That makes it pop. Red and white was nice, red white and blue makes it much more snazzy. You were asking about leaving the clips or gluing it. My question to you would be what are you going to use it for and does it need to be modular? I glued mine but that is becasue I abhor modular pieces in terrain and that is a personal choice. If you are playing mostly RPG or a narrative based miniature games then my suggestion would be to use the clips as you can change the layout later. If it is a static piece of scenery or will only be used for wargames objectives then glue it. They do take up some space don't they! Edit: You could also go half way. Use superglue gel to tack it in place in memorable spots then you have the option to separate it later. Just use a blob somewhere near the surface on an interior seam and then place it upright while setting. The blob will stay in place and can be cut then chipped out later if need be. Still use the clips as I do not think it will hold up to normal use with just the glue. I also need to know. Does the STL come with a file for windows? As this is still on my megawinthelotteryretirementwishlist.
  4. Very nice. Clean lines. Adding black or another colour panel would liven it up further.
  5. I had a company print it over here. They have a liquid resin printer that they do the clear canopies with. Mine had some small flaws that quite frankley add to the model as they look like damage. The sanding was a bugger though. To get it clear and smooth I had to wet sand it with paper from 100grit to 2500 grit and the paint with Pledge multi surface wax. If you want to print the canopy with your printer you can always make a silicone mould and cast it in clear resin. Would be cheaper than a liquid resin printer. Hirst arts has some good tutorials on how to make a silicone mould. There is not much of a learning curve.
  6. Build log on my reaper forum terrain blog. I looked long and hard at the Beta but I don't have a 3d printer and would have trouble justifying it to my wife. Because it's cool does not work any more. I also forgot to ask. Do the STL files contain windows?
  7. Just a broken down cart for the Loot the cart scenario in Thaw of the Litch Lord. Scratchbuilt from card, matchsticks and laser cut wheels. BIts from Tabletop Arts. Only needs static grass.
  8. Well cool and it looks like you are going for a similar paint scheme to my shuttle alpha. The 70s style bright colours are much more interesting than drab greys and greens on most spaceship models.
  9. That is something that I never thought I would miss when I immigrated. Nothing like it over here.
  10. I am hosting a Frostgrave game on Tuesday so I figured that I would host one of the new scenarios. I chose "The Orb" but needed a suitable orb. This one started life as a super bouncy ball. Almost all of the resin is uv setting and the base is foamex. The splash was made by setting uv resin over a plastic sandwich bag that was taped on top of a small container. You can find tutorials on you tube just look for resin splashes. Hope you like.
  11. Well done so far and you did not overdo the roof, it is spot on. What are you going to do for the mess on the porch? Some suggestions depending on your budget. TT combat terrain has a camping accessories pack with a BBQ Grill and an ice chest. Black cat bases has a street litter pack with takeaway boxes and cups. There are also several manufactures that do various bottles in clear resin. Green stuff world also has a mould for cinderblocks.
  12. They still had not finished that display before I immigrated sit is nice to hear that it is now there for the public to see.
  13. That one was found not far from where I grew up. It will be very cool to see where you go from here.
  14. Finished up another building. Foamex construction. Finished with craft paints, loads of washes, some GW technicals and GW paints. Hope you like.
  15. Just a quick tutorial as I needed some for a build. How to make broken clay pots. Take a resin or plastic pot, or a bead that you are using to simulate a pot and use insta-mold/blue stuff/omyaru to make a one sided mould of the top, bottom and a side. Use milliput/aves epoxy sculpt/magic sculpt to fill the mould and take a brush handle to push it to the sides and top of the mould. You want it thin on the sides but not too thin. If the putty is slightly translucent when holding it up to a light it is too thin. Wait for the putty to set for 24 hours so it is completely cured. De-mould and start clipping and cutting each piece. Try to make it look like natural breaks and glue in place. will probably superglue some broken egg shells on this pile too just to bulk out the broken pots. Edit: I forgot to mention. The pots that I used were the most excellent details from Crooked Dice.
  16. Very not bad! Just a suggestion if you are in the states. Have a look around for Rustall in model shops that specialize in trains. If I could find it over here I would pick up enough to last several years. The rust fluid can be built up from a slight filter/tint to heavy rusting. The full pack shown above has their black wash which is passable, a paint on dull coat and a dust filter.
  17. Wood dowel two different diameters of solder and filled the joints. Attached image of one of the pillars prior to filling and paint.
  18. Just an update: Tried out the new Frosgtrave 2E rules last Tuesday night and it was a bloodbath. We did two fresh level 0 warbands and went to town. Played the Summoning Bell scenario on a 3X3 board. Mechanically the rules were the same and it was an easy play. The particulars were what caught us both out. I fielded an illusionist and added the spell blink to my arsenal. It was cast five times between my wizards and only “worked” once. The thief that it was cast on in that instance made his will roll and the spell had no effect. Between the first four randomly rolled monsters in the corners and the double random encounters almost every turn we ended up with the following monsters on the board: 4 snow trolls 4 Toads 4 wearwolves 2 armoured skeletons 2 skeletons 2 Snow Leopards 1 white gorilla 1 ghoul Thankfully all the big stuff ended up coming from only two adjoining sides giving both of us a clear shot to get something off the board. I managed off with only one treasure, my apprentice and a wounded thief. After the game my wizard ended up with a niggling injury so I have that to look forward to. All of my other models came off fine. I also missed my chance for my ulterior motive. I opened the casket but was unable to spend the time to finish the conditions on the card. I did kill the ghoul, two skeletons and a Snow Leopard. Mark ended up stopping the bell , a troll helped him finish his ulterior motive by killing one of my models and he collected two treasures. He only had two thieves make it off the board and his wizard earned twice the experience but also died for his troubles. His apothecary ended up seriously injured and will not play the next game. All in all it was a fun if bloody game. I would suggest that anyone looking to play this scenario get their wizards up a couple of levels prior to attempting it. On to some random photos with no descriptions.
  19. Well done on all. I particularly like the foo dog. The mini above. Where is it from?
  20. I do all my doors 1 1/2 inch. Windows are usually either 1 or 1 1/2 inches depending.
  21. Did a boat burial. I felt free to mix types as this is for a fantasy setting. Built a simple boat from card and matchsticks. Filled it with bits, added a foam hill, foam rocks textured and paint. Fairly happy with the build but my painting skills are still lacking. Hope you like.
  22. Thanks for the comps all. Just realized when I came back to look that this is in the wrong forum. Should have been in Show Off.
  23. Finished my TT Combat Terrain Shield-maidens riding walruses. I have to say they were fun and I am still tempted to do an entire army but do not think my attention span will last long enough to commit to that project. And off to the photos. General Unit leader Standard Bearer. As you can see I can't paint freehand to save my life. Musician One of the troops. On this one you can see the fish I added to some of the bases. Here is the unit shot. There are pictures of all the individual models on my blog if you are interested.
  24. The tutorial is pretty easy to do as it is all washes. I was heavy on the painted highlights but on the table it does not notice.
  25. Just some rat swarms with the extra rats from two packs of Reaper 02399. I could never figure out what to do with these and finally got them to work after the fifth attempt.
