Making and using molds is messy work.

Tried a new mold product that is a brush on. Was supposed to help increase the amount coverage, instead just took 4 times as long, made a mess and then eventually ripped on the final mold.

Here's the slime project pics








Here are the two molds that worked. Not bad casts though.



The first road wasn't so good. Used a release agent on the second and it was much better

Kerkee (the other mad scientist) also got some work done on the cathedral ceiling while I played with the molds

Wow. I really can't wait to see the finished board, but I still think it needs drainage pipes.

Well if it's anything else like an of my other projects (2 major house remodels) it will probably take 12 months to the day. So yes, Jan 2018 most likely

Had to take last weekend off but got back at it yesterday. This thing might be moving pretty slow but I think we can honestly say our bastion is bigger than yours.




The front door going in. Will still need a header and support pillars



A view from the back. The elevator still needs to be attached and the only room with completed walls is the barracks. The motor pool just has floors and the first level done. Command center walls are in but it still needs a catwalk and more wall sections

Yeah. About half the buildings on the board will be accessible. Including this bastion above, the cathedral shown earlier and the future manufactorum and a senate building

Speaking of the manufactorum, just got this in the mail from terrain for games. Will serve as the top 2 stories of our building

Started work on the Wearhouse/factory building from Terrains4games. This is how it's supposed to layout




After some cutting, This is how I'm going to use it for the top 4 floors of our manufactorum

Good news - found the front door to the manufactorum

Bad news - have to try a cut open the front door to the manufactorum without damaging it

I am confident that, even if you do damage the door, it'll come out great. Im seriously jealous.

I find that with molded doors like that, I often have to buy two pieces. One for cutting out the door (and destroying it in the process) and another for the door itself (and damaging the rest of the piece in the process). Good luck to you.

Set the factory up on its new base and laid out some tiles to start figuring out placement



And yes I know that's not how you use a level

We both had pretty hard workweeks so we didn't have much energy left for modeling. We basically just got through: sizing down the manufactorum 4" so it wasn't so deep and our alley was still playable, getting the door in, cutting out the FIFTEEN pieces needed for the first floor walls from the realms of battle board and the beginnings of the "smoke stack"?



This shadow war terrain is really cool but I literally need at least 16 more corner walkways. Hope this detail shows up ok in my crappy mold work

Well, at least that doorway turned out great.

Who am I kidding, the whole thing is awesome! Can you have servitor ports, like in the FW titans, in your manufactorum?
