Nice vehicle...though its really big. A 24 hour print.

Getting T'eeed up for Targe 2018

So in preparation for the Targe show 2018 we have printed some T34s for the Stalingrad Factory game.
3D printed T34,s these have the older chassis with boxes on the back, one with a replacement turret and a couple of replaced wheels.

These take about 24 hours to print.

And also some off board artillery...
203mm Russian Howitzer a resin model from heer46. 

Also as the factory is 5ft long...more boxes and clutter...we're printed to use the end of the pla spool...

This picture shows the difference between the 3d print and the resin model.  Much more detail on the resin. But an ok 3d print....

More factory clutter

I did some more 3d printed  factory machinery ... smaller mills, some wheel barrows and some spanners for a laugh...

 Still to paint the wheelbarrows...might use some for supply transport, rifle carriers...
Sniper at the mill!
We also bought some loose scaled bricks today...

These look impressive at the moment . ..but  with a light wash and lots more volume, no really, a lot more...and this will look perfect.
We just need to get into production...MORE BRICKS needed !

Factory power room scenery

Just putting together some power supply scenery for our factory  game.

All of these are 3d prints.

Also 3d printed a Russian gas truck.

So I printed a few pipes , painted them  and then joined them into the machinery...

This is how they  came out....
 So on a clear base...A4 is size
 Washed the oily metal colour to darken/dirty  it.

Pipes were added to the ends of the power units.
Now all we need is something to put it into...

Added some oil drums and some oil stains around the clear floor.

RUSSIAN ARMY 28MM

Well Santas been... and it looks like the Russian army might be the next tabletop game... I got approx 100 plastic guys to build and paint so just working my way through them at the moment...
 We are thinking of moving to clear plastic bases. ..but at these are just cut from an a4 sheet at the moment. ...
 I need to dip these to get them a little dirtier...
These are mainly Warlord Games plastics. The assembly was fiddlely and takes time. You need time to match arms to weapons.

We have been thinking of a new setting as well...maybe the tractor or tank factory.

I am also thinking of 3d printing a T28 for some fire support. They are quite long and thin. But we mega mgs everywhere...
 So this the T28...in progress.

 And the finished, painted, decaled and weathered version!
Might even make some tank riders up for the rear....
