Nice, especially like the large haulers and the back. The centre two would make good sci-fi mobile homes.06/05/2022 at 14:17 #172499
Looks like they all came out great. What’re you disappointed about?

Do you know that you’re my personal hero for even attempting this, let alone doing so successfully? I’m actually giving this a shot over the weekend myself, albeit with no 3D printer. Imagine a set of micro skirmish that fits in a mint tin, including the game rules? It’s genius, my good man. Genius!06/05/2022 at 18:24 #172510
My disappoint is with painting. I over did the drybrushing and am not happy with how dusty the smaller vehicles look.
It should have been obvious that camo blend shapes and stuff but I had imagined the crew and baggage would to stand out more. The green ones especialy, blend too much into a lump at arms length. Tan one looks a little better because the roll bars are brighter.
I’m happiest with the grey vhicles. Crew and baggage stands out the most.

I think they are great! I would be happy with them. Thanks for sharing.

I really wanted to immitate OldBen1’s 15mm cyberpunk terrain. At the time I couldn’t think of what to use it for, not being a fan of urban fights then I remembered I wanted to play a post apocalypse game and took visual inspiration from The Divison game.
Tile size is 90mm, road and building squares are 15mm.
Buildings are Sim City buildigns form thingiverse. The first batch of cars were two big and the second batch of cars haf more than 50% failure, so I need mroe cars.
Originally I was going to do 4×4 tiles but after doing roads for the first one I settled for 7. Finally got 5 done, and need to wait for my motivation to regrow before I’m ready to paint anymore buildings

Wow ! – that is some stunning terrain – and some great painting – doing buildings can be tiresome, but you’ve aced it – the small areas of colour really bringing them to life.
The Division sounds interesting, but surely you need to print some giant stompy robots and/or Godzilla Kaiju now too !16/05/2022 at 15:11 #173059
That is SUPER cool! So many different things you can do with that city. Heck, you could even do a game of gang turf wars, mob influence, or even zombies/civilian evacuations.

I haven’t played the game myself but I hear some liked it.
I was planning to use Necromunda or Street Fight for a street gang style post appocalypse game. At the back of my mind I’m also thinking of trying out some superhero game someday.

Cool modelling and painting.29/06/2022 at 11:53 #175217
So I failed to find the 10mm minis I needed for my conversions and decided to scale up some 3D models to 6mm. I’ve done 15mm in the past but taking baby steps. Been working with 2mm and 3mm for so long 6mm is massive in comparison.
6mm has plenty details enough and I’ve ditched 10mm idea once again. Did add a little more details to what were 3mm models and I’m very happy with it. The limbs could be a little thinner but I’d rather have durability than thigh gaps.
Also went back to how I used to paint 6mm fantasy minis after drybrushing so much on 2mm and 3mm.

They look nice 🙂

These are grand, lots of character! Perhaps setting up a shop to sell the 3d files should be on your consideration radar.

That’s quite a compliment, but some of the minis and weapons are too obviously based on GW products, I don’t feel comfortable selling.

Based on what I see other companies selling I think you’d be more than in the clear.
