Some ork boyz taking cover in one of the new blast craters that I’m working on. More pics forthcoming as I finish the rest of the pieces and add them to the shop… soon. The “Cinema” filter in Photoscape really added some interesting color depth to this pic.
Side note: If you’re not into digital image editing using Photoshop or GIMP but want to be able to easily do some basic edits to your photos, you should give Photoscape a try. It’s a free download, pretty intuitive with a low learning curve, and it can handle just about any type of basic edit or tweak.
This piece is a 3D printed model designed by Devon Jones at Masterwork Tools. I tweaked the original model slightly, removing the square tile base and replacing it with a STUB (Scatter Terrain Universal Base). I also scaled it up to 147% (nothing magical about 147% per se, it’s just that maximum size I could make this piece and still have it fit on my print bed as a single piece).
The top of the archway comes as a separate piece. There are actually three different styles of columns and tops you can choose from which you can mix and match. I like this piece quite a bit. There’s sharp relief in between the bricks and the other details, but it still printed without any problems and required only minor cleanup.
I also made a WIP video showing how I painted and finished it. You can find the original model here, or purchase an unpainted or fully finished version here! Thanks for the awesome model, Devon!
Starter and Deluxe bundles for the Dynamic Hills terrain set have been released! Shown here painted and finished in the “Broken Ground” theme on a matching gaming mat. The mat measures 6’x4′, which I think belies the actual size of some of the terrain pieces. The second pic has some miniatures included which help give a better sense of scale.
And a bunch of action shots, because action shots are cool:
Recently finished up the Deluxe Set of the Spires & Plateaus terrain, painted and finished in the “Ice and Snow” theme.
(MUST… resist… cheesy joke about… how *cool*… this… terrain is.)
And some close-up shots of the action:
My wrecked version of Scudjuice’s Battle Buggy is complete. Some images going from 3D model to finished terrain piece:
The print settings I used could use a little tweaking because the layer lines stand out on this piece way more than normal. As I was working on it, I was already able to think of a few improvements that I’ll try the next time around, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
Some pics of the new “Inferno” mat with scatter terrain. The terrain pieces are from the Spires & Plateaus set, finished in the “Ash” theme, which is also a new release. Plus, some shots of an Orks vs. Blood Angels throwdown.
I’ve wanted to create a lava mat since I first started making these things about two years ago. I made several attempts with various styles and designs for over a year, but I just couldn’t come up with something that I was happy with. A few months ago, I finally figured out a technique that produced something that I thought looked pretty cool and would work well for gaming. After several more iterations, tweaks, and refinements, I’m proud to announce that gaming mat #13, “Inferno,” makes its debut today!
