The idols look very cool, like the new one a bit more. Have you thought about doing some hand prints in the blue of the orc armour on them (Saruman style)? Ties them nicely together and you can paint every idol in different rock colors.

Winter is coming....nojust joking. Still warmish here and no a song of ice and fire stuff .

Just slowing down with getting things done. Ready for hibernation. Good thing the printer runs without me paying attention.

Proof that it’s been running nonstop.

400% Urbie next to 400% archer.

Also baby Yoda Santa Claus with Holocron matrix.

And terrible action shot of a 3 day print in process.

Atlas, he who carries the world.

He’s also at 400%. At this rate I think by the time the game store is open for play I can have a Battletech match at 400% .

Time is a fleeting thing. One that I haven’t had enough of lately, and the hours in the evening are taken up by watching Boston Legal with my wife.

Luckily I can take a few minutes and hit print and then walk away for a day....or 33 hours in this case.

Saw this image on Thingiverse and now I want to start an undead faction . Thankfully my brother in-law has one and my old undead that I gave him before he moved to Texas. We are going down there for Christmas, so he just got a new terrain piece that hopefully he is not expecting.

It’s also a dice tower

You may notice what looks like a shadow line from the tooth over towards where the left ear would be. It’s actually where I had to change rolls of filament because I realized it would run out while I was asleep. I never noticed the color variance in spools before.

Speaking of color variance I splurged and bought a roll of “Peak Green” by the same manufacturer. Not sure what I’ll make in that...baby Yodas, hulks, and counters most likely.

Until later.

Thanks, Clean up is getting better as I tinker with settings. I might adjust the support air gap up just another notch which should make where the supports touch the model come off easier with less scarring. It took about 20 minutes to get all the supports off of this and it's ready to prime and paint.

Thanks CK. I don't have nu-marines to put next to them, but I think they would fit into 40K games size wise as titans or knights.

Started printing another 400% Urbanmech. Gave the last one to the local Game shop which the owner immediately put into the front display case.

I'm a bit stalled on the Orrucks due to time, but I might get a little bit to work on them this weekend. I had an idea last night, and it kind of works in my mind, so Ill hit you guys with it and see how much of a lunatic I sound like.

To me Orcs, Orks and Orruks are a mob army and their weapon options are all ad-hoc as all get out. They are supposedly stronger than humans and more durable as well. Their stats sometimes takes all of this into account, but over all the editions they just seem lackluster to me. I don't really like the look of the Orruk (Orc) 'Ardboyz. But when I was looking at the new Set of BloodBowl Second Season I totally love the Orcs in there and the prior Orc Blood Bowl team. SO since I want the new BloodBowl Set anyways and I have the Old Blood Bowl team (2015 or so), I want to use those models as part of the IronJawz army. The new Season starter comes with a plastic Varag Ghoul chewer model who would make a nice Warboss in his own right. The last season of Orcs fit the same style as the newer ones and apart from not having weapons and having tennis shoes, they really fit in with the Brute aesthetics. Plus the older team has 12 orc models for $40 (before discount) compared to 15 "ardboys for $57 (pre discount). Sure they are not multipart, but I think I'll have bits left over from the 'Ardboyz I have to do a bit of customizing. With the IronJawz really only having a few options for models out there I figure that this might be the way forward. I just have to find my Bloodbowl Orc team to see what they would look like with extra gubbins.

Plus GW is out of stock on stuff and weeks behind with fulfilling orders to the local shops, so I have no Orruks to buy . How can it be a Green Christmas without Orruks.

Okay, so I bought BloodBowl2020.....and found another box of the warcry Orruks at Miniaturemarket, so I got a bunch of Holiday reinforcements. While I’m not too thrilled about changes to BloodBowl, the new Black Orc team is wonderful looking, and I will use them and my ork boyz as Ard boyz, or possibly Brutes and Ardboyz as the sizes are right. That and Varag Ghoulchewer I started the right size for a Mega Warboss in my opinion, which is all that matters .

Still very work in progress, but here he is between a Brutes boss and the Warchanter

I printed custom templates for the Orcs this morning and will paint for a bit as I have some time.

Tim Allen’s best acting EVER .

Well T-minus 25 hours till we start driving to Texas for Christmas. So much left to do .

Plenty of work yet to do on Varag, butwanted to show him off. He’s on a 40mm base as that would have him as a Brute, a Megaboss goes on a 60mm base which I think he can fill nicely.

The unlucky Ghoul used as a mid game snack.

And the side everyone enjoys as it means he is going the other direction.


To harken back to my first games of Warhammer over 30+ years ago, Mr Wyman always had the objective of the battle be two armies meet at a field with an outhouse. Neither side likes sloppy seconds

Also realized the Warhammer Cafe in Grapevine was 30minutes away.....

Thanks Everyone.

I have not yet crossed the Rubicon, but I have enough bulk for when they stretch me to appropriate size. Actually if you take into account the thickness of the sole of the boot and the helmet I think I’m right inline with actual heights of the Marine statues.

So it’s New Year’s Eve here and I am sitting enjoying some quiet as the family is out running errands, including picking up a copy of a game from Target that we played on our trip (Quirkel). Think dominoes meets soduko and uno, we played it pretty much non-stop over Christmas and my wife ordered it through Amazon after the first game, so you know it was good. Amazon has failed to even package it yet and it’s cheaper to get local then to wait another week for it to possibly arrive. So we will be ringing in the new year with wine and family game time.

Reflecting back on 2020...

Got a new job position, better pay and better hours, more family time. Immediately put on furlough, but was reassured of having the job back ASAP, which happened not as quickly as hoped, but still better off than others. The down time and extra unemployment pay earned me an Ender3.

Pandemic also kept the kids home for 90% of the year along with my wife (teacher and now online school administrator), so we have been well protected by isolation. Wife has also signed up for the Doctorate in education which will begin soon and she should have it by the time the twins graduate High school in 2+ years.

Game wise each time I find a local group to play we get shut down because of the virus, so Battletech and AOS are on hold right now. I found someone interested in learning Bushido with me at the local shop, he works there, so that could help develope a real group.

Painting bug bit a couple times, but I am far too enameled with the 3D printing to really get much done.

Looking forward to 2021, hoping the dumpster fire doesn’t catch the garbage truck on fire where it will ignite the trash dump .

Game wise Goals for 2021:
1. Bushido, build a board and paint some models
2. Finish Orruk for AOS, maybe complete Blightkings as well, but might unload them to build another army
3. Feeling a strong pull for 40K Necrons, I’ve been printing some terrain for them and seeing others work, I might snag Indomitus while I can.
4. Another pulling game I saw Arena Rex. Gomez has been hitting the models out of the park and it looks like a quick bloody game with not too much to crunch.
5. Hobby clean up, this should be a constant, but I am about ready to just bin a whole slew of things I have dumped money on over the years. Mainly cheap that just hasn’t paid off.

What do you guys have as plans of for 2021? Respond here or your other threads, I still browse, but life’s balance has kept me from posting like I had previously.

Your orcs (I'm old, can't bring myself to say orruks) are coming on nicely and those battlemech prints are awesome, but a look like a pain to clean up.
I had a quick think about next year and came up with enough projects to keep me going for decades! So needs a bit more thought. I like your idea of a hobby clearout, or at least some buying restrictions (though those sort of hobby plans haven't worked yet!)

No buying restrictions here .

Had some store credit to burn, so I picked up the elite edition 40K starter from my local FLGS. I had stopped by Miniaturemarket to buy Indomitus, but they didn’t have a copy in store , guess I’ll have to order it online .

Yes, getting back into 40k. Had made all my willpower rolls for months, then Grimdork returns and buys it and shows it off again.....and I saw some necron 3D files .

Speaking of which, I ran out of grey filament.

So green spidercron has made an appearance, just needs more legs and a tail.

His mirrored twin is printing now.

Ooh shiny new models! And it sounds like your year was quite OK? I find it interesting to see that a lot of people managed to make the best out of 2020, and did quite well in the end.

Same here though: more working from home, more family time- it wasn't all bad, though there is a lack of real, physical social contact.

Lookign forward to see where 2021 takes you!

Yeah, for all the that 2020 catches, it was actually really good for us. None of us lost our jobs,in fact we both began new arcs in our careers that are more fulfilling and better paying. I did have my furlough time, but it was covered by extra pay. We have been relatively safe from Covid, with relatives getting it, but everyone of our family has survived, a few friend however did not , and another is being taken off the ventilator today, and will probably not survive, but chose the “no heroic measures” route. We replaced our roof,siding,windows,oven (gas), got a minivan without getting rid of a car as the twins will have their licenses soon. Medical bills have been covered, and we are still in a sound state, so no extra hardships. We miss seeing everyone in person, but we have caught up with old friends online and are planning out 2021.

I will get my vaccine shot this week and my wife is getting hers as well, both of us are considered front line workers.

Hobby wise.
Have a copy of Indomitus ordered . Also grabbed the elite starter bundle for extra bikes and skorpetek walkers. A belated gift last night means either a codex or another elite edition will be ordered.

Edit: sorry for the disjointed posts. Was in the middle of it and got pulled away.

I was really excited to build and start the Indomitus Necrons, but now having been thinking of the second half of the box, I’m trying to figure out what chapter of Marines to paint .

I’m going to break open my copy of Index Astartes, but there are already a few contenders.
1. Blood Angels. One of my favorites, but will I actually mix old and new
2. Dark Angels. A chance of the Lion Returning....yes please, plus bike company and land speeders, or whatever the new hotness might be.
3. Scythes of the Emperor. Vanilla chapter (Ultramarine successor), challenging paint scheme. Back from the brink of destruction thanks to Primaris marines.
4. My own Successor/custom Chapter. I had made the Theophony (hence the name) many years ago, but they were boring grey dudes. I also had an idea for the Baal (Fire) Scorpions based on the creatures on Baal that Sanguinius had defeated, basically a giant scorpion (3-4meters long)
5. Will do research on others.

Throw out your suggestions quick. I have a desire to do some painting.
