These prints are outstanding, the temptation to follow your lead is very strong

Well the Ender 3 keeps going on sale cheaper , i am seriously contemplating getting a second one . Seriously. There is so much I want to print and get done that I have a backlog of 40+ models(not counting doing multiples of those) for a KoW army. Then there’s terrain. The only thing stopping me is my wife . She would divorce me in a heartbeat if I started to buy more filament. I’m getting one spool a month ($22), she just doesn’t see I haven’t spent anything from our account lately. My Conquest buy was from BDay funds.

I’ve probably only spent less than $400 on the printer (200printer, 60 replacement parts, 140 in filament and files to be generous) . Beats what I would normally spend on models to this point.

Yeah, if you're going second printer, go for a resin one so you can do small things on that and the larger/flatter things on the Ender.

Those buildings are gorgeous!

...And zero upgrades needed on a resin printer, but you do need some additional cleaning and curing paraphernalia, as previously discussed.

Yeah, I blew the left over Bday funds on Bushido the game with their Gencan15 sale which started today. Gits' has done a great job selling the game with his videos and I already had almost all the Ninja Clan, all the already released Minimoto Clan and some models from the Temple of Ro-Kan. With the extra 15% pretty much wiping out the Airmail costs and a little extra I was able to pick up the new Temple starter bundle which had all the models I was wanting in it, the last missing ninja for my collection and the Rulebook, tokens, special play cards(for all three of my factions) and scenario cards. I think I have someone who works at the game store interested in the game and since I'll have three fully playable factions I might be able to generate some interest.

Having four cats and three kids I am too leery to get into the resin printer game right now. My work area is in a full open part of the basement. Once a kid moves out then I can take over their room possibly if my wife doesn't claim it for a home office (which I would be fine with).

I got more printed today, but with returning back to work this week I am beat having been on my butt for three months , I'll do a photo dump later.

My printer has gone on strike .

It keeps starting up and heating, but after returning to the home spot it won’t start another print. I think I’ve had it running basically nonstop for four days. It might be overheated, so I shut it down to give it a rest while I’m at work today. All the online advice I’ve seen is either it’s overheated or got a corrupted file somehow, my microSD card did glitch on me, but that can also be caused by overheating and static. Reformated it, reloaded and still same issue. Sent creality an email this morning.

Either way I have plenty to keep me busy painting until I figure it out. The worst part is I ordered another spool just in case about ten minutes before it went on strike .

Oh and heads up Lots of sales happening now with GenCon being cancelled. Miniature Market has a $10 off deal too.

Bushido is very tempting. I'm currently sticking together lots of Japanese themed figures from the Shadows of Brimstone Forbidden Fortress set and looking for replacements for the human-ish figures as some of them are terrible (better than the cowboys from the original sets though!). I'm also in a samurai mindset from playing Ghost of Tsushima

Must resist buying stuff with the Gencon discount...

It definitely looks like a really great small game. Variety of missions. Lots of different armies each with multiple ways to play them. Great sculpts, and since your in The UK shipping shouldn’t be as bad for you as they airmail it to us (about $25 for shipping less than 10 models, a book and a few decks of cards ) that was about 20% of the bill which is too much in my book. Unfortunately there’s no US distributor that I can find and only a few shops carry it and most is older single model (they just updated all the cards to 3rd edition).

You should buy it with GenCon discount, because you would buy it anyway and might as well save money....or if your like me your going to spend the same amount but will get one or two more items for the same total .

plus just use the Shadows of Brimstone models as civilian models or decoration so your getting multiple uses out of each item.

Printed a bunch of things, all posted over in my printing thread, I’d repost here, but getting ready to leave to work at church this morning. Have a plan to start painting some more models this week/weekend. Actual painting and not just contrast which is still painting, but I need more color than just the few contrasts that I have.

I had a look at the Bushido stuff and the factions/figures I was most interested in are all preorders, so not in the discount. I'll have. Think while I try and get caught up on the huge Brimstone backlog. If you think your postage was excessive, the new brimstone box is $110 with $100 postage... And then import taxes at the UK end :/

Luckily no import duties here.....yet.

Yeah I'm wanting to get all the Minimoto stuff, I'm up to date so far, but need to get the rest when it comes out. I also want all the Shiho Clan stuff as well. I will save up for those and maybe get them on the nest sale if they get the discount.

I saw the shadows of Brimstone stuff, the first sets didn't wow me, but the newer ones (oriental themed) I really like. I just don't want to get into another Zombicide sort of situation where I have to catch them all.

Inishing the fourth Oni in a minute. Daughter has a Doctors appointment at noon so I will try and print out the weapon in between now and then for the 5th Oni and start him when we leave. I think they will count as Tree Hearders in Kings of War: Samurai/Elves.

Finished my second week back at work, getting settled in, but still tired from being so lazy over my furlough. Finished a 10hour print of baby Yoda which is on my wife’s desk in her newish home office (my bedroom ) and finished a couple other prints as well.

The two handedless (usually two handed club toting) Oni and his mirror who when I set them up like this I realized I can snip the clubs and add some modeling chains and they can be dragging something like an Oni Chariot . I may have to print more to do this .

Also the armor stand a sword a terrain piece is great.

So hard to get a good picture, but it reminds me of the scene in The Last Samurai film where the armor is displayed in the house of the dead fathers.

Trying to get enough Oni club space printed today. Have a few other plans as well. Overnight will be another Baby Yoda, I’ll try and get a picture of him shortly.

Baby Yoda telling my wife it’s coffee time. I need to print one for the Pator as he is a huge Star Wars Fan and coffee drinker.

Baby Yoda is excellent. I'm loving all the Oni, still looking for a good skinny Oni with spear for Lightning (for Hellboy). I really have a notion to do white scar, or at least successors, with mempos.

He really is, and the newer program is getting much better results with smoother skins all around. I made another for the Pastor overnight.

I have a few Skinnier Oni, I'll try and do a picture later, none really look like Hellboy though.

Speaking of lightning, The Church was struck by lightning around 4 am this morning. I showed up just after the assistant pastor called to let me know about the fire and I couldn't even get on the street with all the engines, ambulanes (no one was there, but just routine) and police cars. The steeple is a complete loss, good ridance to it and the stupid pineapple finial they had on top of it . Unfortunately they believed it was out and started to pack everything up when flames came out of the rafters again and they broke out the big hoses. We aren't allowed in until later today if then. The assistant pastor (Over Music and classes) of course ran inside and saved all the instruments except the drum set because it was too big to drag out. He was alsothere before the firefighters arrived and they put a stop to that when they arrived . The Steeple is directly over the sanctuary stage, back office and youth room in the basement, so I have a feeling it's going to be service in the Reception hall again for a while. Insurance is paid up though .

Crikey. Sounds full on! Glad things and folk safe. As for Oni, I didn't clarify: there are a pair of Storm Oni in one of the animated versions, and the extant hellboy Oni is perfect for Thunder (big, tetsubo) but there isn't one for his brother Lightning (slender, spear).

That’s one heck of a drama filled weekend! Thankfully it sounds like no one was hurt. Hopefully the insurance sort it out efficiently and let the church pick a different finial! Perhaps you could 3D print one?

Well the drama continued at home later that morning. I couldn’t find my phone so I went in and out of the house multiple times checking my car, but somehow between it all my phone had fallen out of my pocket up in our bedroom, found it like two hours later. When I went to go check the church later that afternoon, I walked outside and a huge branch had fallen from the tree over my car. A lower branch caught it and it was dangling no joke less than 4” from the hood of my car . I backed the car up, grabbed the branch and it fell without even pulling. Basically if a ladybug would have landed on it my car would of had a sailing mast . All is good though.

Another major thunderstorm just rolled through in the last couple hours, watching our trees bend in the wind is not as relaxing as they make it sound in Dune .

So the new settings are a mixed bag. I’m getting such great prints, but reworking the wall section that took 12 hours now takes 23hours . I’m trying to think if it’s worth it. The final products definitely look much better. It’s nit like I’m running low on things to paint as I’m lazy .

Blimey, an action packed weekend Theo. The damage to the Church is not ideal (Pineapple finial and all!) but at least nobody was hurt and the insurance should cover it, and good that your car escaped as well.

I am from a place called Coventry in the UK, have a quick Google as to what the Luftwaffe managed to do to our Cathedral one night in November 1940...

I have seen images of Coventry Cathedral before, but it is always good to be reminded of that sort of devastation, lest we forget.

I figured out the part of the program that i've switched over to (Cura 4.6.2) that lets me input the cost of my spool of filament to break down the overall cost of some of my prints. I cannot go back without reslicing the files to get all the prices, but needless to say one meter of my filament comes down to $0.07 for the prints. So now I will e documenting how much each piece costs to produce. I also took one of the 3 baby Yodas i have printed to work today. Pretty sure i sold another Ender 3 with just showing off the one print . ,I want commissions on these .
