    Our son printed an excellent version of the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Abbey of la Maisontaal for me. It has so many uses in many periods. You can see it in the raw here http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=122216.msg1550569#msg1550569

    With shattered roof

    With some parts of Hami’s Normandy Farm

    Looks pretty good, especially the stone pattern, as it doesn’t look like it repeats.

    It does repeat but has been designed to look random so that you need to look really closely.  I had the card model for years until it fell apart through constant use by the kids.

    This one is far more robust but I cannot find some of the figures to play the scenario.

    FDM or SLA? How big is the print bed?

    The tree of Life is self pruning.

    Sorry I have no idea what this means as I do not do the 3D printing. My son said on another forum that he uses

    “Software is Cura (its free) for slicing and getting the G.Codes for the printer and I am currently using a Prusa I3 Mk3. Really easy to use.”

    That’s a really well designed terrain. How long did your son take to model it?

    Tired is enough.
    I like tiny miniatures

    I have just asked him. I’ll let you know when he answers.

    He says:

    To design the monastery? A while, as I was in Mali on an operational tour and internet was not only slow but limited.

    All in all the design was probably about a day, the detailing was the tricky part, i.e. stones, floor, damage parts, windows etc. that was a couple of days off the top of my head.  So I would say about a week on and off between work and designing.

    Pretty dang good work for being in the back of beyond and on OP T!
