Thank you so much for posting this, I always drool over 3d printers but have better luck using my hands than 3d software so I couldn't justify one. This is just right for me, and I would not have spotted it in time to get it as a Christmas present to myself if I hadn't seen this thread. :D

I actually stumbled across the video for it on Youtube earlier.... well, it could have technically been "today" or it could have been yesterday. I was watching some video on quadcopters and the 3Doodler was one of the recommended videos.


I started out being interested, then got disappointed because it wasn't what I thought it was. Then got excited again as I watched them build something in 3D just freehand. But the globbiness of the lines would drive me nuts. And the inability to get perfect control over it would frustrate me too. So my ultimate decision was, "I'm not allowed to buy anything anyway, so even if it was something I'd get a lot of use out of, the answer is No. But bonus No for the fact that I'd get frustrated and then abandon it, box it up, and forget I have it for half a year or more until, probably, I find it again and try to play with it and find out because I was lazy and was "totally going to play with it tomorrow" that things got gunked up and has to be sent in for repairs and who has time for that crap?"


It's really neat, though. I'd love to play with one.

I just backed as well.


Doing things like drawing cages, barred doors, bridges, and so on is just too cool to pass up and all of these are just simple. The best part is they have biodegradable plastics you can use--so no problem just destroying stuff if needs be, and how cheap said plastics are. The pen uses hardly any to make a lot of stuff.


As for the lack of artistic abilities if you watch their video they show that a lot of people just trace it over paper so it would be pretty easy for someone like me to google "cage" on a tablet then just draw over what I find on an image search (if the pend doesn't damage paper it's not going to damage glass). It would be pretty easy for people to place templates up for various things in scale too as well.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
