Carnival of Chaos Plague Cart

Hello everyone



Quite a few time ago, I had a small talk with a friend of mine about how great Mordheim really is. He and his local club had just started a small campaign and I thought that it would be really nice to jump into action and remember the good old days. My all time favorite Witch Hunter warband would be glad to burn some witches once more but I thought that a new one would be much better. In our talk we also discussed about the ridiculus prices Mordheim models and warbands are sold on ebay and the discussion ended on the Plague Cart of the Carnival of Chaos.
the original model that Games Workshop released
This model goes for prices of up to 150 Pounds on ebay and I really didn't want to spend all these money on such a (not so great after all) model. Therefore, the idea really came into my mind, I should make one of my own.

Not so long ago, I have purchased my own 3D printer and since then I had a ton of fun creating all sorts of things, so I have decided to use it for this project as well. 

I have found a nice file over the internet for a carnival cart and I decided to use this as a base model.


After quite a few hours of printing the end result is the following



The end model have been extensively converted and modelled to create that slimey and rotted look that papa Nurgle always favors. The driver is based on a plastic Skaven model with lots of sculpting to create the robes. Tiny bits and pieces were added to the cart, trying to avoid going overboard. I wanted to keep that one simple yet full of character. 



clickie for biggie ;)

The paint scheme is mostly based on the original model. I liked the contrast of the boney white areas with the dark brown ones. 

I hope I you like the model as much as I do, I would love to hear your comments and see your votes on CoolMiniOrNot.

Thank you, till next time, take care! :)

Skaven Chief Warlord Engineer Ikit Claw

It has been such a long long time since I posted anything on this blog. I hope there are still people seeing my updates :P

Anyways, here I am once again, finally managing to finish something off. Something I was building for quite a while now. You have probably by now seen my Skaven army building up through the pages of this blog. If not, do so now ;)

In any case, I have always been fascinated with one of the most infamous Warhammer characters, the great Skaven Chief Warlord Engineer of Clan Skyre, Ikit Claw. Being a long time Skaven collector, I happen to have the old model of him, not that I dislike the newer version but as I always like to say, no school like old school! I always loved the character and the extreme details that this model have.

But let the pictures just do the talking, I guess





The model stands on a resin Armorcast base. I don't think they made these anymore, if they do please let me know as they are really great! I think it really makes the model stand even more out of the ordinary and it really suits well with the general archaic industrial feeling. I decided to go with a slightlty different color sceme than the original model, mostly because I wanted it to have a more fresh look, using metallics and washes to create this gritty and mechanical feeling. The banner is completely scratchbuilt from greenstuff and hand painted, using the original banner as a model.The base is finished with a pool of green shiny slime because... well nothing shouts out loud that an experiment went wrong more than green shiny slime ;)

As always I would love to hear your comments, remarks and anything else you would like to share with me, plus if you have the time, leave a vote for this fella on CoolMiniOrNot

Till next time, take care!

Expanding the 3D Universe

Hello everyone!

I would like to share with you my latest achievements using my 3D printer. I have been mostly toying with World War 2 themes, and following my latest post with the British HalfTrack I wanted to show you what I have managed to pull...












I will soon post a painted update on the Bishop SPG I incuded in the gallery above so keep an eye on this space for the end result! 

I am also working on my YouTube Channel with the unboxing of my 3D printer and some 360 degrees model showcases!

I would love to hear what you people think

Till next time, take care!

M5 British Halftrack 3D printed

Hello everyone!

Following my last post on my 3D printer I am happy to give you an update on my progress so far with this wonderful machine.

After many test prints I have managed to build my first fully 3D printed model. The M5 British Halftrack.



The main problem with 3D prints are the printing lines that are clearly visible, especially on the flat surfaces. I have tried removing them with putty and sanding them but they have been preserved. The 3D model was quite plain as well, not many details to be seen so I have decided to add some stowage for extra detailing. You can see some WIP pics below:





I am currently working on more 3D printed WW2 models so expect more in the near future, as well as uploading some videos on my brand new YouTube channel, so keep an eye on this space for more! 

I would love to hear what you think and as always check my CoolMiniOrNot entry for your votes and comments.

Till next time, take care!

So it begins...

.. the journey to 3D world!

2016 started for me with a loud bang, and the reason is this bad boy over here...



This is the brand new bq Hephestos 2 3D printer . I have been toying with buying a 3D printer for quite a long time now but I wasn't sure I could find the proper model to get me started. After a long long research, I ended up to this bad boy over here which I believe is the perfect entry level model one can buy for under 1000 € . More on my opinion though after I get to work with it!

As part of my entrance to the 3D printing world, I intend to start toying with the idea of creating my own YouTube Channel, starting off with some unpacking and assembly videos of my latest toy and of course, presentations and showcases of painted models and scenery from my evergrowing projects. Let me know what you think in the comments.

To give you an idea of the functionality of this machine, take a look at this video



Keep your eyes peeled for more exciting things in the future!
Till next time, take care!
