A Prank Website Devoted to Horrible Flocking/Terrain


Recommended Posts

Hello terrain builders,

 

So a few years back I started cooking up an idea for a joke website where I pretend to be the worst scratch-builder/terrain-maker ever (not a big stretch for me) and brag about how amazing I am at it. I started collecting junk that I could give pithy names to, like a hand saw for Sawback Ridge, a broken hubcap for Battle of the Rim, whatever, and then make up terrible stories to accompany my ridiculous brags about how I "flocked" non-terrain items. Literally trash items with Zapp Brannigan levels of brag.

Did I mention that I've been running this site for two years now, slowly building followers and readership so I could pull this prank overnight? I re-tooled Statbonus.com for this

Anyway, I figured I'd invite my friends from Reaper to create their own joke submissions or write comments about the junk. The gag is that we praise the terrible stuff, and disrespect the actually good terrain that's been provided by Arbiter10. Don't worry about being cruel, he's in on the joke, and I've given him cred and links to his etsy from the "about" page-- which is the only serious section.

 

Got an old toaster or TV that would look good green? Ever wanted to flock garbage? Here's your excuse.

Something must be wrong with me. I think those actually look kind of sweet.

Nope nothing wrong with you. I was thinking the same thing... Maybe something wrong with me too. LOL ::P:

 

 

I approve of this in a totally non joke manner. I appreciate the humor, but seriously, these aren't bad ideas. 

 

A little work and that hubcap could be an overgrown abandoned bunker...

 

Lol, I can see the bunker, now that you mention it. Maybe saw out the middle so a circular door can open up exposing the nosecone of a missile. It was a lot of fun to throw caution and care to the wind on these, but now I'm curious how some time and love could look on some bizarre objects. It would be freakishly strange if this prank turned into a serious pursuit...

This interests me, as I would totally use a flocked hubcap in just about any genre.

This kind of thinking is what happens once someone has witnessed numerous Frogciddents.

 

And this is a good thing.

 

I am not as sure about the spoof webpage.

      Just some more finished terrain from the Shadowfey set from Printable Scenery.

      All were printed on my Ender-3 with the exception of some of the branches, the stump, and the bones, which were done in resin on my Elegoo Mars.

      Lost colony: spaceship Graveyard is the ultimate starship wreckage system. It's all about customisation, fallen spacecraft and the fragments they leave behind.
      This modular, 3D printable terrain is the second Kickstarter from Saucermen Studios and is even bigger and more diverse than the last. As stretch goals unlock, over 210 models become available to help you build incredibly detailed and tightly packed skirmish tables or larger, sprawling battlefields.
       
      The huge core set of 80+ interlocking spaceship wreckage parts is delivered as stl files. It features incredibly detailed, double sided hull plates with internal features, computer terminals, piping, machinery, airlocks, windows, rooftops, debris sections as well as attachable ship featuressuch as boosters, engines, landing gears, weaponry and hi-tech gadgetry such as sensor arrays.

      i stumbled across this neat article on social media. It seems doable enough - balsa, hydrogen peroxide +sun light, and marine epoxy?
      Not huge application, but I suppose it would allow glass skyscrapers, greenhouses, and... mostly windows? Will post if I try. Please share if you try.
