Another vote for tilted version - it adds some movement.

Yep! It consumes my time. (good problems?)
I was working on some side projects that reminded me of Sciror conversations, so I started rereading the old posts...Then I saw Ed's announcement on fb.
Not sure where to go with things now, but I guess I'll start a blog here for some stuff.

It's a sad announcement indeed, but then again, the Troll Forged forum had been dead for a couple of years now and I haven't really spoken to Ed or Philip in quite a while.

I'm mainly doing design work for Vanguard Miniatures at the moment and am trying to integrate some of the concept from Sciror into their Defeat in Detail universe.

True. I'm surprised the forum is still up, I started backing up some of the past conversations for reference in case it goes down (no point letting old knowledge erode...that's how we get dark ages )
And that answers my question if you talked with anyone recently.

Vanguard looks like it's kicking butt. I have a few friends talking about exploring 6mm stuff, I'll point them your way.

You should, and maybe even convert them to 3mm, at that scale stuff gets truly 'epic'. :O

Started working on a sort of grimdark/gothic version of Tatooine, your thoughts?

Very nice.
Having a platform to land/stand on is good, and it blocks LoS nicely.

My first thought was Naboo, though.

The Naboo vibe must be those big windows I'd guess.

Very nice oil barrels, wouldn't mind them in 1:144 as a scatter for an airfield, actually, looks very versatile!

1:144, how big are infantry models then?

That and the clean, sharp lines. Tatoine should be softer and more weatherbeaten.

They look good, though.

Wow, I love that you're doing 1/144 scale terrain.

FWIW, I did a cut at near modern papercraft terrain for KOG light:

1:144 would be anything between 10 and 12 mm, depending how You measure figures. Happy New Year and best of luck (and attention to details)!

I feel more and more tempted to perhaps set up a Patreon to release some STL stuff, basically terrain and other bits in mainly "smallscale" (6mm, 8mm, "1/4 of 40k scale") and "fleetscale" (BFG etc). I was wondering if you guys have any experiences on that?

Here a pic of some buildings I might wanna release that way!

One thing I'm kinda missing in the current 6mm scene is converting. Now that everybody has a home printer, they simply print whatever they want. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against 3D printing...why the hell would I otherwise do 3D design work. But I do miss the whole craft of 6mm converting.

So...I was pondering about making my big armoured gun morphing guys modular. Basically 5 bodies and then 10 different arms.
