The Graveyard

So last year I 3D printed and built a graveyard and started painting it, and like alot of projects it got put on hold and never got finished. So with the rise in enthusiasm again in modeling and painting and the my new goal of painting an Undead army for Warlords of Erehwon  I've now completed it.

 Next on the terrain build is going to be a few crypts I think.

Boba Fett and a pile of plastic

On the 3D printer this morning I have Boba Fett. I've scaled him up from the original model off Thingverse to be about 25cm tall. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3806630

I also pulled out the box of miniatures from the last Reaper Bones Kickstarter this morning, just one or two hundred models. Think I should have enough models to make an undead / vampire style army for Warlords of Erewhon.

Bloody Hell ... tis been more than a year since I last posted anything.

Now we (all of New Zealand) are in full lockdown with the COVID19 virus for the next four weeks, it must be time to do something about the lack of blogging. Not that I haven't been busy, the past week was a bit insane with working from home and trying to get my clients all setup so they too can work from their homes. I'm one of the lucky ones that can still work. Hard times for a lot of people out their.

So with the first weekend in official lockdown, one pulls out all those unfinished projects. I've been working from home for over a week already and had lined up a few projects to work on.

First up is a 3D print of Baby Yoda.. it's not a great print job, but good enough to get me back into some painting.

Second was a Baby Groot I also 3D printed last year and had been sitting on my desk taunting me for some paint for a very long time.

Not the greatest paint jobs, but a good start to get back into it and also sort out my painting desk. Now living in a small rental house my painting desk is a quarter of the size of my old setup, which is a whole nother saga.

Third on the list today was my newly created and again 3D printed measuring stick for Warhammer Man O-War. My chosen army of Slaanesh which was of course 3D printed needed some extra bling. So far just the base colours down and I realised I have the top Slaanesh symbol not centred correctly, so I'm gonna have to fix that up and reprint. But it gives me something to test paint

 Then 4th for today was the graveyard. No surprise its all 3D printed as well, with a few gravestones form a model pack and out of my bits box. I had made it up near the end of last year and its been siting around collecting dust. Now all the gravestones are in and I got grass down.

Weed, vines, leaves and tuffs of grass will go on tomorrow once all the glue dry's.

Keep Calm
Keep Safe

Keep Painting
