Warlord Titan (Part 1 - First foot forward...)

So I got myself a new toy last year - a 3D Printer. My intention is to use it for creating scenery pieces.

As is my wont, however, after using the machine to print several upgrades for itself and learning a bunch in the process, I got distracted...

I'm still going to use it for scenery pieces (I have a bunch of stuff to print for my Middle Earth SBG Moria army, for example), but I have discovered that some nice person has created the models for printing a 28mm scale Warlord Titan.

So now I'm making one of those.

These things take a long time to print - the five components making up this foot took a couple of days, for example. This is a project that I will be running with for some time.

Now a confession: I have actually printed quite a bit of this model and am working through painting it up, so there will be a series of posts over the next few weeks to get me up to date with where I really am, then it may well all slow down.

Middle Earth SBG (The Dead of Dunharrow - part 2)

Wow - almost a month since my last blog post.

That could be a record.

I have not been idle! Here are some more dead chappies for my Dunharrow army:

Middle Earth SBG (Ruins of Osgiliath - part 2)

Hey, hey, hey, sports fans.

Here is the second batch of buildings I have painted towards my little Osgiliath project.

I'm aiming for something that is flexible, changeable and easy so I'm sticking to using off-the-shelf GW models. I've swapped a few bits around here and there just to keep things interesting.

Middle Earth SBG (The Dead of Dunharrow - part 1)

I've focused quite heavily on bad guys up until now. Aside from The Fellowship I really haven't painted any goodies at all for Middle Earth.

Well, that changed recently when I decided to (excuse the pun) flesh out the Dead of Dunharrow force that came with the Pelennor fields set.

So, before the "War in Gondor" book that came out with the new King and Heralds models, I trawled ebay and (excude the next pun) added some meat on the bones of the army for not a lot of cash.

So, here are my King (original metal model) and some of his mates:

Middle Earth SBG (Ruins of Osgiliath - part 1)

As you may well have noticed I've been on a bit of a "Middle Earth Mission" recently.

Well, I'm still on it. Five separate armies on the go (The Fellowship, Moria, Isengard, Mordor (and friends!) and The Dead of Dunharrow).

I needed a break from painting "people" so I've decided to do some scenery pieces too.

The easiest way to start was to pick up some of the GW ruins which can be bought quite cheaply off eBay so that's exactly what I did. I decided to have a go at building something that could be used as either "random ruins" or - deployed in quantity - Osgiliath (I'm still searching for something that could represent the infamous bridge - stay tuned).

Anyway, here are the first few items:

Middle Earth SBG (The Fellowship of The Ring)

I have been a lazy person recently.

Not that I haven't been painting and building my metaphorical a*se off - I have. A lot actually. A very large whole big lot.

No - what I've been remiss on is photographing and blogging.

So here's a bit of a catch-up on one project - The Fellowship of the Ring.

I've previously displayed my Boromir, Sam and Gandalf. All well and good. More recently I've completed the rest of the group. So here they are:
The nine walkers

Necromunda: Clan Escher (Part 2)

More, erm, ladies(?) for the clan.

I'm still well pleased with the finished results for this clan. I'm not sure which clan I'll paint up yet - I have Van Saar and Goliath to think about. I really want to do some Palanite Enforcers and some Genestealer Cult too.
