The Armory production review   Leave a comment

This year we have advanced in technology with the acquisition of a Lulzbot Mini 3D printer.  The printer is technically my sons (bday present from his gran), but I have been capitalizing on the use.  Andrew spent the first month with the device building a full size vex Mythoclast rifle from Destiny.

I have made a number of vehicles and terrain pieces.  My conclusion is that the 3D printer is ideal for terrain.  A couple more generations and it will be good for 15mm scale vehicles.  Having said that the vehicles are pretty good.  I downloaded a number of vehicles files from m_bergman on thingiverse.com .

Below is a FAMO tractor.  Execellent model.  A ZIS fuel truck.  Really cool! and 3 Tetrarch for the Pegasus Bridge game we will have in a couple weeks.  I need to get them complete!

I also got in on the Kickstarter for the Printable Scenery Rampage project.  This company has amazing terrain to be printed.  Today I have printed the Barbarian House (below only sprayed painted)

The Winterdale Tavern which is a work in progress.  I am going to create a scene for the building.  It is huge!

In preparation for the Normandy game I am making more hedgerows, some gliders, and LCAs.

I havent only printed terrain, but I have bought some.  The 4Ground Pegasus Bridge took two days to complete.  It looks amazing, but it is a technically difficult model.  The mat is from Deepcut Studios with their river pieces.
