The Delicacy Of The Dumpster

Recommended Posts

We also need a mutant guy who empties the potty.

 

Carring a big vat of goo, some spills out.

He is ogre sized and full of warts and such.

 

Maybe a cart to go with that?

Maybe a few shipping containers, build a industrial site like a harbour setting.

I might suggest making some stacks of scratchbuilt containers using corrugated cardboard to go with the reaper ones. Harbors usually have a LOT of those things stacked high.

I remember being appalled when I found out how many of those containers are just abandoned - it is often less expensive to buy a new one than to clear out and repair an old one.  (More than a quarter million near Washington DC alone....)

I have a deep desire to build a fort out of shipping containers somewhere and create my own republic of dave.

So looking forward to Fallout 4.... It looks like a ballpark (not Fenway) has been turned into a fortified town....

I do not like the idea of goin' straight from "portapotties" to "food."

Offends my sensibilities, it does.

I lived in a dumpster behind Tower Records in Austin for a couple days when I was experimenting with homelessness. I find the scale reasonably accurate.

It seems like there's a reasonable chance of an interesting story behind that.

 

Also, I'm going to have to steal the phrase "experimenting with homelessness" for a story.

lol. title click-baited me. 

I wasn't sure what we were going to talk about. 

But I do love the dumpster. Sadly, we play almost nothing that I could find a use for it in.

Maybe it could be a cool thing to hold pens/brushes on a desk? That could be cool....

Holy thread necromancy Batman!  :blink:

 

Because it is relevant to the hobby side of containers, I will drop this image from the Infinity forums here...

      I haven’t been feeling inspired this week; too much outside world creeping in, I suppose, but I did finish up one little scenery project for my “scenic bases” upgrade.  I got the Mantic Terrain Crate walls as part of the Kickstarter a while back.  They look well enough, but are very thin and there is no way they will stand by themselves on a table (to allow them to be reconfigurable).  I decided the thing to do with them was to group them into a couple of basic enclosures. Last fall I got a buch of irregularly shaped masonite scenery bases with beveled edges, so I sorted around to find ones that the rectangles of the walls would fit.
       
      Having a bit of extra space at one corner, I planted a few trees to give it an organic feel.
       
      Prince August true (small) 25mm figures are shown for a scale estimate.  These would be pretty petite walls against Reaper figures, I think.
       

       

       
      I considered adding crops or headstones, but decided that it was best to leave the interior fairly open to allow deployment of troops on 60mm square multiple figure bases.

      While I love painting miniatures, painting terrain pieces is also fun! I started these two this month and finished just yesterday. I’m considering getting these two pieces again and do a desert themed set.

      Story
      Hello and thank you for taking a look at this campaign! I'm a digital sculptor from Germany and this is my first 3D related campaign. I'm excited to share my models with you!
      Mythology has always had a special place in my heart and I wanted to make something that others can be a part of as well! 
      This Kickstarter provides a range of popular mythological beasts, scatter, props and scenery for you to print at home on your 3D printer. Use them for your tabletop gaming, in your dioramas or paint them - it's up to you!
        Why digital files and no physical goods? I'm still somewhat new to the whole miniature scene so I don't feel comfortable enough to offer physical objects yet. This is something that will definitely happen in the future, once I had the time to establish more contacts and can assure great quality.
      What will you get? You will receive .STL files of the miniatures and props listed below. Additionally, I will be sharing tips for printing the models and my workflow in a PDF for trouble-free printing, which might be useful if you're still new to 3D printing.
      Check, check and check!
      All files have been checked for issues and test printed on my LCD resin printer Everything is prescaled for uniformity Tips for optimal printing & personal workflow as PDF included   Commercial license? Want to sell copies of the models online or in your brick & mortar store? No problem! Just choose the 'Commercial License' reward tier and you're good to go! Please note that this license only allows the sale of physical copies.
        This campaign includes a collection of popular mythological beasts. All miniatures were sculpted with great attention to detail that translates well into your 3D printed models. All minis come with their own base that fit on a standard D&D dungeon map. 
      The miniatures are prescaled for easier use and uniformity. Most monsters are 'large' so they're scaled two fit into a 2"2" square. Of course you're free to rescale them to your needs! 
      Here's a list of the monsters you'll receive:
      Basilisk (large) Cerberus (large) Cockatrice (small) Cyclops (large) Fenrir (large) Hippocampus (large) Pegasus (large) Sphinx (large) Unicorn (large) Wyvern (large)  Photos of the printed miniatures can be found further down the page!
          This pre-prepared version of the wyvern allows you to print it BIG! It is sliced into 5 pieces and keyed for easy assembly! Prescaled to around 23 cm (ca.9 in), this wyvern is a real eyecatcher. 
        Photo of the printed, assembled and primed Wyvern The Wyvern was printed on an Anycubic Photon S It measures about 23 cm (ca. 9 in) in length

      This is the Guard House / Toll Booth from Kiernan Billings’ Wizards Tower Expansion Set. IIRC this was printed at a 150 micron layer height using my Anycubic i3 Mega printer. I tried smoothing out the print ridges using Polycrylic before priming. It didn’t seem to make a difference on the print lines. 
       
      This is a two piece print (building and roof) with a simple paintjob of dry brushing, washes, and matte coating. I think it turned out great for the game table. If I wanted something for display, I think I could get the quality necessary on my UV resin printer at higher resolution .  The photo doesn’t show the bluish purple of the roof very well, but this is generally a good representation of the work. I have not decided if I will permanently attach the roof or not. 
       


       
      Now I need to paint the couple dozen pieces I have printed of the Wizards Tower and Bridges. 
       
      C&C welcome.
