Nicely done.

 

Is the backdrop clips 3d printed as well?

Yep - found them on Thingiverse a while back.

 

I found they work better with a large sheet of thin craft foam than they do paper.

I've found some on there awhile back (probably the same ones) & thought about printing em up. Nice to see how they turn out.

Glad to see yours is working.  Still trying to get mine going again!

 

Nice work the ruins are convincing.  I like the level of overgrowth

I've had it for about a year and a half now.  I've had a few failures - the main power wire to the heated bed has broken a couple times (because it does a lot of flexing), and I had a bearing fail.  When I replaced the failed bearing, I didn't get my Y-axis belt tight enough, and I had to figure out what was causing some stuttering on the Y-axis.  

I also replaced my nozzle with the wrong type once, and it was causing clogs.   Turns out that the Prusa requires nozzles that have a nozzle end shape that looks like a V - the one I put on looked more like this \_/     The flat spot on the end of the nozzle was causing clogging about every 20-25 layers. 

I think I would have been very frustrated with those problems to the point of throwing the printer in the trash if a) I didn't have a lot of experience troubleshooting and making repairs of things and b) I purchased it as a kit, specifically so I would be familiar with its construction/configuration in case I had to do troubleshooting and repairs.

I've been printing a LOT of these ruins lately, but this particular "set" is finished.

 

These are the Ulvheim BE modular ruins by Terrain4Print on Thingiverse.  I started out printing them at 100%, and they are massive.  Turns out that T4P recommends printing them at 75%. He told me that at 100% they're 100mm x 100mm pieces, which makes the "engineering" easier to accomplish.

 

He designed these so you can use them in a modular fashion, with clips you use to assemble, disassemble and reconfigure.  But when it comes to setting up ruins on a table, I just want to get them out there, so I've been gluing them all together and detailing them.

The floor is .040 V groove sheet styrene. The way T4P designed these, there is a natural little groove the styrene slots right into.

These are all I'm going to print at 100%.  I've got about 8x more 75% pieces currently in progress, which I'll post up here when done.

 

And T4P just released an expansion of these called Ulvheim ruins B2, which includes floor sections now, so that will probably cause me to double what I've done so far.

here are some more of my Ulvheim Ruins.  These pieces are printed at 75%

These are the first three I have to the point I'm calling them tabletop ready of about 20+ pieces currently in progress.  At some point, I'd like to further the detailing, with some washes to stain the ruins, and figure out a moss effect, but that will have to wait until I get the rest off my paint bench. 

 

 

 

 

So I really like these Ulhveim pieces.  The modularity is awesome, and Markus at Terrain4Print has plans to add even more variety to the line.  As you may have recalled, he had a KS that he cancelled.  After he cancelled it, I reached out to him and asked "how can I help you get ready to relaunch it?"  He responded by giving me early access to his files in exchange for painting and photographing them for him to use when he relaunches the KS. 

The first of those sets was a cemetery set - he gave me permission to show off my pieces of them here:

I still have some more detailing to do on these, but I was anxious to get some pictures to him to show that I wasn't just taking advantage of him.

      Recently, Modiphius released an STL model of the Corvega Coupe, so fans can 3D-print their own (provided they have access to a 3D printer, of course).  I am fortunate enough to have a friend (Chris Thesing) who actually has *two* 3D printers.  He printed off two runs of the model: one in lower resolution on his older PrintrBot Plus printer (using Solutech PLA filament), and another using his newer, higher-resolution resin printer.
       

      ^^^
      The PLA filament version of the model.  This model prints in two pieces -- one for the undercarriage and wheel hubs, and another for the upper body shell.  Alas, there are no tires, and no separate segments for the gull-wing doors, windows, hood, trunk, etc.  This was printed flat on the bed, and due to the low resolution this of course means a lot of striation on those gently curving surfaces.  (This is how it looked after an initial spritz of white spray primer, as the sheen of the bare plastic was problematic for taking photos of the detail, such as it is.)
       

      ^^^
      On the right is the resin-printed version of the same model.  First off, it's a much higher resolution, but also Chris tried printing it at a 45-degree angle (supported by temporary scaffolding) as he's seen several others do.  I'm not quite sure about the advantages of doing this, but I think it makes a difference, because the curved surfaces of the hood, roof, and trunk are very shallow curves.  Actually, I think if the car were put up straight on its bumper, there'd be the best result, because each of the slices across the car would have a minimum variation of width from one to the next, versus the big jumps in footprint area to each layer when the car is printed right-side-up.  That's just my notion, however; there might be factors I'm unaware of that are contributing to this.
       
      Anyway, on the left is the PLA car, but I've gone back with some sandpaper to try to smooth it out a bit.  The trouble is, I noticed that I'd utterly *destroyed* the shallow scribing detail of the gull-wing doors on the roof, and I was in danger of obliterating the Chryslus symbol on the hood and other such things, so I called it quits after a bit, and hoped I could make up for it by camouflaging the striation with "rust paint" effects.
       
       

       
      Here's a side-by-side of the two models now that each one is a little closer in terms of where I am in the process.  The green car on the left is the PLA model (you can still see the striation despite my sanding), whereas the resin one is the red one on the right.  I went in and painted the window areas and chrome detail in grey, and splashed some paint on the PLA undercarriage in preparation for making it look a bit rusted out.  At this point, I pretty much decided that the resin car is going to look pretty much intact, though a bit grungy, with the thought that it's a car that's been restored Post-War, or has somehow otherwise been kept in relatively good condition.  (I could after all use it as a "show car" for my "Chryslus Show Room" scenario.)

      Well mostly scenic base.  Made a town centre that will get dressed up as a market once finished. Basing material is foamex with a plastic receipt spool covered in Milliput.  Painted with a mix of craft, PP and GW paints.  Further tinted with a treatment of oils.

      Online, from a certain market of miniatures, I found some "Kaosball" team expansion packs on clearance (for a better price than what they're listed at now, as of this writing).  Each pack contains 13 32mm-scale minis in 2 poses (6 of one pose on 25mm square bases, and 7 of an alt pose on 25mm round bases), a "bust" that represents the "team coach," and a game-specific 12-sided die (which I suppose isn't much use for anything, unless I actually wanted to play the game).  Anyway, this worked out to being under $1 a figure, and the sculpts looked interesting, so I got a few packs.  (I find it hilarious, though, that while most of the packs are marked down, the "Felinia Hellcats" -- scantily-clad gun-toting cat-girls -- are specifically marked as "[CLEARANCE]" and yet they're priced at about 3x the asking price for each of the other teams.)
       
      I originally picked these guys up (the "Samaria Barbarians") with a vague intent that "someday" I would run a Savage Worlds convention one-shot scenario heavily inspired by the "Brütal Legend" video game ... but it occurred to me that few if any of my players would have heard of that game, and I'm no particular "expert" on anything rock-and-roll-related, so maybe I'm not the best person to GM such a setting.

      However, I could always use a few more post-apocalyptic wastelanders.  The "big hair" style here doesn't necessarily look like it would fit the current Fallout aesthetic as established in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, but I think these guys wouldn't look terribly out of place in the original Fallout 1 & 2 (what with all the "Mad Max" and "Fist of the North Star" wannabes wandering about in those games).  I removed the figures from their bases, putty-and-texture-stamped the 25mm round bases, putty-and-texture-stamped some plastic 25mm rounds for the remaining figures, and did a few hand swaps and bit-add-ons to give a few of the figures visible ranged weaponry.  (I figured that would give me a little more buy-in if I were to field a gang of these guys for an encounter and then they start FIRING on the PCs, versus what pushback I might get if they *appeared* to only be armed with axes.)

      I used some paper printed license plates to add some "junk armor" elements to further reinforce the "post-apocalyptic" vibe.

      Each team pack also comes with a "bust" to represent the team coach.  I went with a bronze-and-verdigris scheme for each.
