So as you know I like a bit of 3D printing and to support my Geek Club (who just happen to love the Goonmaster anthropomorphic miniatures) I joined their patreon… to be honest it wasn’t hard…look (badly photographed) chameleons…
However, this is not the doomed part… as I had jumped on the monthly payment for Goonmaster, one of my others was going to have to go the journey. Yeah!
I was going to drop Highland, as I have had three months of dwarves which I am not really that into. They were bringing out a new race… everyone was guessing… anywhere from Chaos dwarves to Wood Elves… sadly for me…
When I played Warhammer 6th Edition I loved The Orks and Goblins… I had a lot of Gobbos… I always wanted a whole 2000 point goblin army… looks like I have a chance thirty years later!
To be fair if it had been anything except Gobbos or wood elves I would have been gone.
So it would seem like my Lord of the Rings one will be going in the new year. I was supporting them from day one, about two and a half years ago and I have printed very little. The odd miniature here and there for the One Ring RPG and for the stalled battle of the Five Armies diorama.
It will be a case of if I want something I will buy it on My Mini Factory. I am hoping the paths of the dead will be next!
So foolishly I made my way to work today. Cold and Flu plus kept me on my feet. But my cover teacher was Poorly so off I went. Friday is technically a shorter day as we finish at 14.00. Well it would be if I didn’t run the Geek club.
If you remember we were making stone walls out of 10mm blue foam. This was where we got to today…
I am so proud of them. But more importantly they are proud of themselves.
We still have work to do but they are getting there. In the background is the tray for the spray varnish.
Sat in bed writing this, nose streaming and guts well and truly being coughed up…. Bleurgh!
I thought I would drop by to let you all know that I am in fact still among the land of the living, haven’t been abducted by aliens or indeed got lost between home and work (but it was foggy the other morning).
Motivation to write, let alone paint anything has in fact taken a bit of a nose dive. But shock horror… I did in fact put paint to miniature this evening and made a small amount of progress on the skeletons I printed ages ago…
I went for green this time as it was handy and I couldn’t think of another colour I fancied.
At the weekend we went to Brucklands which is a recycling centre in the North of the islands. I went in hoping for a bit of a storage solution and shock horror I came home with this for a fiver…
As you can see I have already filled it up with crap. Sadly my cat food boxes don’t quite fit. I am covering them in black tape to make them less obvious. The photo was taken when I was having a test run.
Hopefully I will carry on with a bit of painting tomorrow.
This evening I simply got some miniatures onto some MDF bases. Not a huge amount, but at least I achieved something.
Now all of the dwarves I have printed before this were for Joe. I fancied painting some myself. It has literally just dawned on me that these probably aren’t going to be super exciting as they are all pretty much armoured.
I said some time ago I fancied Mordheim again, one force I always fancied was the Dwarf treasure hunters. It looks like with these 3D ones it will be a possibility. The only things I haven’t got are the Dwarf juvenile types.
