I’ve only had one hiccup with the GW paint pots and that was from me being tired. Then again I’m not a prolific painter and I do a lot wrong , but the shark fin looks neat.

First world problems with having a 3D printer . One day I’ll get one, till then I’m letting all of you smart young’unz figure out all the problems so mine doesn’t flash 12:00 for two years after I buy it .

Good progress on the terrain.

I'm loving your creativity as usual Meer_Cat. That paint pot holder is pretty cool also, I would find that useful, I have some old paint pots from before they had that weird little nub on the back to hold the lid open (plus those don't always work well).

Thanks Theo and Syro, for stopping by!

I'm actually old enough that I wanted to avoid the whole 'learning curve as art becomes science' thing, so I went with an inexpensive (comparatively) but proven model in the Ender-3 Pro. Almost three months of trying different print profiles and almost two months now of working with Creality to figure out what's wrong. I've seen pictures of peoples' prints using the Ender-3 and -3 Pro and they are great. Some of the designers I back on Kickstarter use the same printer themselves, so I know the printer itself is probably not the problem, unless I have a defective component, like the temperature sensor, or something. I'll keep at it- this is too close to the Star Trek (Original Series) replicator for me to give up on it!

And the way to fix any device with 12:00 blinking on it is to cover it with electrician's tape.

Syro- I have a lot of trouble with these stinkin' paint pots- especially the washes which are what I use of Citadel's the most. Much of my current cutting mat/desk blotter is covered with Carroberg Crimson from a mishap- I grabbed these as soon as I saw them to avoid repetitions in future. I may actually glue the plastic base to a broader foam board base to make it even harder to knock over!

I'm hoping to get one of the weapons platforms done tonight on the E.A.T.M.E., but there is a lot going on, we'll see.

More follows soonest.

You want some of these:


I have the x1 and the x5 holders, they're a miracle.

Thanks, Brian- I'll one or two to try, but I really need help from something that holds the lid back; not in opening or fitting the little nub to hold them open, to get the nub out of the way to close the blamed thing again! I'm not very clever with my hands at some things, I reckon. These holders look interesting though, I'll give them a try.
