You might be wondering why I’m sharing an image of my Army of the Imperium… but what I’m actually sharing is what is missing. Can you guess? Answer after the jump.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a similar picture with my Ultramarines on the shelves. Yep that’s right, the Ultramarines were sold for asking price and this force has now been promoted on the prime real estate left by the Ultramarines.
I just wanted to take 5 minutes and share what I’m up to hobby wise. Painting wise I’m not up to much. I painted the Space Wolves and haven’t returned to finish the squad. I’m still getting White Dwarf and the temptation to buy miniatures is real. The Kharadon Overlords look spectacular.
Currently 3D drawing and printing Boba Fett armour.
However my new 3D printing hobby is eating into my time as I 3D model and print Boba Feet armour for a costume I’m putting together (I learnt to sew to make all the soft goods myself).
A 3D printed Tyranid Icon.
Apart from the above icon, I haven’t used the printer for any hobby related prints. I wouldn’t mind a brush holder, or maybe a paint pot rack or maybe some terrain. It’ll be a long time off though.
So that’s what I’m up to. I’m hoping to find a spare five minutes soon to paint a single Character model. I have a few laying about. Just have to pick one. Watch this space.
I kept the centurions. I picked up a GD Finalist pin with those and the colour scheme was different to the ones I sold so they never really fit with the old army.
I also kept my Tyrannic Attack scouts and terminators, and also my Space Hulk Ultramarine Terminator conversions. I also kept the thunder hawk.
Thunderhawk? Where he is?
Don't worry Rudboy, I still own the Thunderhawk. It's on the shelf below.
I'm fascinated by the 3d printer. What model is it? And how is the the layering doing? The pictures make the surface look really smooth.
Original Prusa i3 MKII. It's a pretty good printer. Was printer of the year 2016 for a lot of magazines and websites.
Can pick to print in different layer heights so you can get really smooth (for 3D printing) it's not good enough for small miniatures. You'd need an SLA resin bath printer for that.
