Do you see what I see? A temple? A factory? A mech base? Corporate office?


Recommended Posts

I was cleaning up behind my barn and found this half-buried in the dirt.  Was just on the way to throwing it out when I just couldn't.  So I washed most of the dirt off, and cut a base from scrap plywood I had, and away I go!  I actually have a semi-solid plan.  I want to knock this one out fast, first of all, so maybe it'll get done this year (ideally before spring or even March, but I know how things go).  I want it to evoke a few things without quite indicating any of them.  The Tyrell building from Blade Runner is a big one.  The magitek factory from Final Fantasy VI is another.  But I also want to maintain that primitive temple look--like a Mayan or Aztek pyramid--which the shape itself lends to.  I also want it to appear as though it's either been abandoned or nearly so, and nature has started to retake it.  So lots of pipes and vines and gears (see my initial bits pile) and maybe a surprise if I can keep motivated...  Let me know what you think!

 

Ha, also noticed my little Narshe cottage in the background--it's nearly complete as far as building.  That'll be for another topic though!

Subtle notes of a Hoth snowspeeder bay there as well....nice haul! 

 

Yeah, that's what I'm seeing. Some kind of hangar bay and a variety of pieces for a communications array.

A little progress.  Mainly a zoom-in to see the joints between the metal plates of the structure.  I messed with a few tricks to get thin, STRAIGHT lines--dragging a square, round, or triangular file, a hacksaw blade, a jeweler's saw...  Ended up using a metal ruler as a guide and an xacto knife--the trick is to drag it ever-so lightly, else the blade will veer off course even with a guide.  I've also attached a few pieces at this point--some in the pic.  More to come soon!

      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.

      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.

      Presenting the Shrike Urchin, this sewer wader is part of Twisteds Dickensian faction.
       
      Really struggled with this one for some reason (the fact he's very unstable didn't help), but I think he came out okay.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

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.
