Glad your daughters test came back negative, we had similar after my daughter developed a cough. All negative, but it really does cause stress!

The peg boards are great, the 4 pot racks look cool, but that is a fair bit of printing time. I’m very jealous of your hobby space, mine is in the loft with sloping ceilings preventing me going for a similar system.

my wife and my youngest son have been tested.. both negative so far... i guess in the course of time in the end i will get it... i work in at school... care in the afternoon... and frankly... not getting it while time marches on would be enough to justify winning in a lottery...with all the parents carelessness going on...

I just wish I had found the newer racks sooner, I think I wasted a whole spool ($23) printing those and I could have done other things with my time. As for space, the back of my chair I saw next to the furnace, so you make space where you can. Find an old shelf and attach pegboard to the side, it really can help with organizing.

I know what you mean. Working at the church and at a hospital is like putting two rounds extra in the Russian roulette pistol and then playing by yourself. Add in a teenager who works at a restaurant and another teen who works at fast food and it’s a short game. Just lots of hand washing and I always wear a mask, except to sleep and shower. I’m so used to them that I have on more than one occasion tried to eat while wearing it and stained the darn thing .

Printing another big beastie right now. The head alone is 22 hours and the chest is a full day plus some. I might try to swing by the other of two game stores near my new worksite. The last one I checked out last week was more of a D&D and card game store, but they raved about the miniatures at the second shop. Though I may have convinced this shop to carry Frostgrave and Ragnarok by talking to the owner since they sell bones and pathfinder miniatures. They are great cheap add on sales generators for shops that sell those models anyway.

whoa... for me this "thing" is still something like wearing a gasmask.... it´s always in the way, interferes with social feelings, gestures and facial expressions... i can´t count how often i had to explain that i was smiling or laughing under that damn rug... ... working in a hospital..ok... kind of you knew what you was coming your way.... but when you are meddling with 5- 10 year olds ( me...) or my wife (toddlers) you´re absolutly out on open ice... i still hope against hope that the mask thing will be gone....sooooonish... (my wife is currently again at a point where she thinks it will be a new kind of civil thing... and come what may never will leave us ever again...sounds moody...right?...)


speaking about printing... have you known that the PLA is also possible to be made from corn and other vegetable ingredients? i recenlty ordered me a D&D kitchen set... (building a giant playable multilevel tavern for a school project for my son...) and its quite smooth too...

Yep, corn or even rice is the main ingredient of PLA. It’s renewable and chewable .

Oh and when I took the new job it’s at our children’s hospital, so yeah.....all ages of kids newborn to 20year olds with disorders of all kinds. Some wear the masks no problem. Others will fight you worse than any Karen you can find online . I know what you mean about needing to tell people your smiling. If they aren’t close enough to see your eyes then they can’t tell your smiling. Plus our corporate just changed policy again, so no patterns or writing on the masks. I understand why, but really, were a children’s hospital and it’s fun to have superhero masks or characters on them.

brilliant line...
but I understand kids rejecting the mask... what is more troublesome is grown ups in good health with docs at their side giving them permissions for not wearing it due to so called medical conditions...(i´ve seen peeps that need these permissions...and still wearing them... and then an old granny on her bike with gloves and the mask....what a funny odd world tto live in...) sorry for the mask rant...

Glad the tests came back ok! I know what you mean about the security cards though. I have to leave it with my phone at all times, otherwise I'd lose it immediately!

The painting area is looking great. I really need to go through my paints and work out a better system. I do get the feeling it would be cheaper to get something laser cut though

It’s not really to stifle individuality, but more to keep the extremism down. It’s no surprise that we had a lot of civil unrest with the Black Lives Matter movement during the Covid pandemic and this ridiculous election. It only takes one person making a mask with any sort of message on it that can stir up trouble with a bunch of people, and we are there to help kids, not to politicize medicine. Some designs were great, others were nice attempts, some were just sad.

So I guess at some point this month I'll begin painting a model for the monthly competition .

Copied from round 68 painting challenge blog.
Okay, so this will be another month i say i'll play and won't get it done . Just so happens i was printing this monstrosity and it will take most of the weekend and part of the next week to finish . H's a big boy.


Just to give an idea of the completed model.

four armed and four axe wielding Chaos Dwarf mechanical beast of Destruction.

Each axe takes about 9hours. his two arm sections are each 20+ hours. his right leg just started a bit ago, hopefully it will be done when i wake up in the morning before work.

Well printing is MOOOOOOOO-VING along . His right leg finished in time for me to start his 23hour long arm. Then it’s just another 19 hour arm and three more 9hour long axes. After that it’s painting , always the hardest part. This thing is a beast in all sense of the word. Easily the size of a knight. It has the Chaos style armor plates which could make it fit nicely with all the Khorne giant robot things like the brass scorpion.

I’m not really impressed with this months patreon from Titan-Forge. Just really holding out for my 6 month subscription bonus model the Oni Bushi. I guess I’ll wait to see previews of the next few months offerings before deciding.

I know what you mean about this month not being the most inspiring. I do need a Witch Hunter for Warhammer Quest though and the villagers can go beat up the pub patrons if I ever manage to print that thing up. The mega-Cow looks pretty impressive so far, can't wait to see what you do with him.

I really do not know how you have the patience to go ahead with marathon 23 hour long printing sessions Theo, I would be constantly checking and worrying about the progress.

All told would you say the printer has been your best hobby purchase ever???

I only have the patience that working two jobs affords me. Keeping busy means I can’t always sit by the machine. The Right arms finished early this morning. The left arms are printing and should be done by midnight. That leaves two horns at 3 hours each, and three more axes at 9 hours each. Anyway, this guy is immense as you all keep saying.


Now must stop myself from building a Dark Mechanicus army .

Putting a sting on should not be a problem, just need to make sure it is thin as most times I see people do it makes it look like they are using the mooring ropes from the titanic on their bows.

My daughter is having two surgeries today. One a cosmetic repair on her ear from pulling her earring through the side of her earlobe and then the other your basic tonsils and adenoids. Having opened my office yesterday, I can’t take the day off , but since they limit the number of visitors anyway (I could get in since it’s at my hospital and I have my badge still), she is fine with momma being there.

Having adjusted the print settings to reduce the flow rate by 5% has made the supports really easy to remove, less stringing and cut almost an hour off the print time. I haven’t seen any drawbacks from it yet, but I’ll keep looking at the next few prints.

In the mean time, the beast is all printed. Welcome to lord Boraks used Minotaur shop.

lord Borak doesn’t sell lemons, so if you complain he will make some lemonade....out of you .

I’ll try and prime it all black tonight when I get home. Have to get the oldest up to go take her ACT test. Busy day all around.

Looks wild, Theo. Annoyingly Tanaka Muna's Daikyu was broken in either packing or shipping or it just wasn't a good cast....happily that means that adding a string to it should actually be easier! I used fishing line once before on a Waywatcher, might try that route again.

The surgeries and everything sound wild. Sorry to hear everything's piling on to you this year!
