Used the off-cuts from making the earlier plaforms to make more ascending/decending platforms in a different style.  Also made a ramp with some fish tank filter thingies to make a ramp gentle enough for minis to stand in.  All supported by those 3d printed blocks.




Black and white PLA combined with bad lighting isn't really showing these off well.

Against all expectations, I'm getting back into 40K.  This is because, against all expectations, some fine friendly folks are opening a FLGS that's actually local to me.  That is, it's in the small to

Finally got to Lowes today,  spent a few minutes trying to describe these tile edging strips to one of their employees.   Turns out I was standing within arms reach of them the whole conversation and stopped short when I said "No they are more like these things here... Actually they are 100% like these."  :lol:




Anyway what do people think of this new style (the white railings)?  Since they don't have the rounded bit at the bottom, they are easier to to cut into bits and fit onto platforms or whatever.  


Also, I'm not sure what a "rebar mesh chair" is for but they are cheap and seem interesting.

Trying to brainstorm how to turn the cool filament spool that came with my printer into a Necromunda style tower.




Sadly, none of the filament I've bought comes on similar spools.

I had seen either a KS or and ad for a set of prints to turn filament spools into buildings somewhere.


Digital Taxidermy was the KS.


And someone has some gaming inserts for spools on Thingiverse.

Got some new spray paints from a local HW store.


Some Rustoleum "Chalked" Blue.  Not cheap but one of the few shades I thought would be good for the non-industrial buildings.




Fine textured dark brown 



The texture is more obvious in person and I think works really well for a rusty industrial look.  Even with the Polyshades primer and this textured spray just a tad of the 3D printed texture on the pipe bend on top shows through.

It would probably have been better for my heart's health if I hadn't noticed that Velveeta boxes would make the perfect start for some containers.

That is something that I never thought I would miss when I immigrated.  Nothing like it over here.

You might want to look at angel hair for the fasteners if the regular is to thick...it's a lot thinner


Couldn't convince myself that angel hair would stand up to abuse so went with some wire I found.  Not perfectly strait but not bad, I think.




I'm running low on the packing straps I've been using on the reinforcement so the top container was built with some large zip ties I found.  I guess their texture didn't really come through in the photo.

      Picked up a bunch of the CAV terrain before Christmas t use for CAV and/or 28mm sci-fi gaming. Have been working my way through it and thought I'd post what I've finished so far.
      72607 Ammo dump

      72608 Fuel dump

      72610 Short Containers (3x sets)

      72615 Bunkers

      72611 Generators

      Generator with a couple of 28mm Warlord figures to show how it looks in that scale

      Finished a couple more gang members for Warlord Games Judge Dredd game.  Painted with reaper and Vallejo.  In theory they'll get used for demos so I didn't want to burn a lot f time on the bases.  These were some of their first figures in their new resin.  It's kind of like Bones I as far as material goes.  Also think they some of their early  ones in 3d modelling as the "engraving" is almost too light.  makes it hard to pick out details and you've got to be careful not to apply too heavy a coat or you'll fill in lines pretty easily.

      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.

      Dem bones:

      Stump, it's stump, it's in my heeeaaaaad:
