Watch Tower of Prin Guls

Recommended Posts

Deep in the Golad Mountains of Domaar, in the vale of Prin Guls between the Night Elven realm of Khimzul, and the High Elven realm of Auborlon stand the Watch Towers of Prin Guls as a first line of defense against a Night Elven attack.

 

This is my first serious modeling for my 3d Printer, and is designed to turn an ordinary Pringles can into an Elven themed Watch Tower. These are the first pieces in what will hopefully be another modular fortress.

Yes, those are Anhurians manning the battlements right now, as I only had one lone elf painted and readily available.

Looks great!

One Elf with a bow will be a menace to all invaders!

 

Even if they are from the Lost Valley of Chee Tohs

Thanks All. It's been fun figuring this out. 

Got a coat of primer on it this morning, will be working on it tonight and will try to post some more WiP pictures.

Excellent! One must always stand vigilant against attack by the armies of Dor' Rito and invasion from the Barbarians of Ruffle Ridge.

LOL. I decided to use Prin Guls as a clever way of saying "Wargaming Terrain Made with Pringles Can". 

When I went to post it, I thought about how Froggy always gives a little back story, and so I borrowed some names from the new D&D campaign setting my son and I are working on to give a little story. 

But now, after your input, I'm thinking that the whole area between the Night Elves and the High Elves is going to have to have snack food themed names.

So I primed it with a red automotive primer, then drybrushed it with several successively lighter shades of craft paint.  On to painting details, and prettying it up.

Also started designing and printing some variant pieces.  Not happy with the roof, though. I don't think it needs to be that tall, and it takes too long to print.  In the process of redesigning it.

      Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100.
       
      There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder.

      "After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF. 
      The goal of the game is to  capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and  secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around.
      The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."

      So, first off, sorry if this is in the wrong category. Wasn’t sure which one to put it in, so.... Here it is.
       
      As I’ve been painting for a while, the thought of “hey, maybe I should print my own minis” popped into my head. I pursued this thought a while, and then determined that yeah,  I should probably go ask the professionals. So, here I am, rapid-firing questions like a nitwit.
       
      First of all, what are some of the pros and cons? It would seem that it’d be cheaper in the long haul, but don’t you have to buy the 3D model as well? (But MF, you could finally make those minis you’ve made in your spare time on Hero Forge.......)... What are some of y’all’s pros and cons?
       
      Second off, what printer? From my research, it seems that resin provides the most detail, but is more expensive, so I’d like to avoid it if at all possible. I’ve heard that the Creality Ender 3 seems to be best for the rookie on a budget (which I am in the largest sense of the word), but is it really?
       
      Lastly, is it actually worth it in the end? In both the regards of pleasure with the final product and economically?
       
      All thoughts and advice is needed and appreciated! Thanks, all!

      Since it's arrival last month, I've been experimenting with my first 3D Printer.  Today marked the first finished painted projects that were made on it.

      Several Giants, designed by Duncan "Shadow" Louca.


       
       

       

       

       

      The Gourdlock, by dutchmogul:




      One of my favorite finds while randomly searching for STL files, the Dwarf Rock Star, also by dutchmogul.


       
      Completing my Frostgrave Bestiaries is an eventual goal...here's a simple crab from Rocket Pig
       

       
      Tortles seem to be the new hotness since their introduction in a charity event tied to "Tomb of Annihilation".  These guys are a mix from Fat Dragon and the wonderful DM Workshop


       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      The last are a murder of Redcaps, again designed by DM Workshop.  I swapped out their weapons to give them some variety.
