Very good conversion and yes, a well thought out critique of the model.

Much better look and flow of the model. I think GW’s sculptors sometimes get hung up on what they can do, and less thought about if they should. It’s a wargame, there are a lot of practical concerns.

I like the original version, but I don't have game-related or transport concerns. This addresses those nicely. I look forward to seeing her painted.

Thank you very much everyone, I'm quite happy with how she turned out, even more so after reading your comments. I completely agree with you Nev, often it does seem like GW gets too caught up on what they can do rather than what they probably should do. On that note: here's a thing I can do now that has eaten up my hobby time for the past couple weeks.

So I finally broke down and bought a 3D printer and I must say... I'm in love. It's an amazing piece of engineering and the possibilities are literally endless. So what do I do with my new found power? Wound trackers of course! I never did like GW idea of 10-sided die, too easy for them to roll around or otherwise get bumped all over the place. These 0-9 dial trackers seem much more practical to me. I initially made a test to see if I could do it and it turned out so well I decided to show my gaming group. Turns out having the LITERAL POWERS OF CREATION(!!!) at your fingertips makes you the popular kid on the block and before I knew it I was swarmed with friends who wanted dial wound trackers for their armies. I have a background in 3D modelling and animation from my college days so I quickly set to work personalizing the dials for each friend. First up is our Grey Knights player. I took a simple GK logo, built it into a 3D solid and "stamped" it into the blank wound tracker. Save this as a separate file, throw it onto an SD card and off to the printer it goes. It's nothing wildly extravagant but considering I haven't touched 3D modelling software in roughly 10 years I'm happy at how quickly much of it came back to me. Next up is chaos star and the nurgle logo. Let me know what you guys think of these.

They’re really cool, nice touch to put each armies logo in them. did you print them complete or do they require assembly? Too many people tempting me to but a 3D Printer on here. I should probably buy a PC and 2D Printer first!

What programs do you use? I should really get back to playing with mine. I had a fun (over engineered) a project for wound trackers. I got to the point I learned what I needed to, so had to re-boot to start from scratch and build up a new 2.0 model. But never got there.

@gobert The numbered dial and top logo piece are separate but there is a slot in each to fit a 10x1mm magnet. They hold together really nicely with that and the dial needs some human force to spin so you wont accidentally change the wounds on a vehicle in play.

@Nevelon I'm using FreeCAD as my design software. Still learning the ropes with it but there is lots of tutorials out there for it and best of all it's free so if I don't like it down the road there was no sunk cost. Overall I'm fairly happy with it. I learned 3D modelling on Autodesk Maya which had more features and was overall a nicer program but it's mostly geared to animation which doesn't help with 3D printing. Also I don't want to pay for the license on it oh boy was it expensive the first time around. For slicing and exporting my GCode I use the Creality slicer. It's the one that came on the flash drive with the printer and is made specific for my Brand of printer so it's got some options and settings built in that make the process simple. It's a good little program that's just enough to get the job done without drowning you in advanced stuff.

That's cool!

The possibilities woth a 3D-printer are endless!
One of my friends bought one and I was excited to start 3D modelling again, but I have not got around to it yet.
Used to play around with 3DS Max and Blender during my studies. Those are pretty good, especially blender as it's free.


Is that a plastic or a resin printer?

Those wound tracker look very nice and cool, that you are doing them for your gaming group!

@Ezki Blender was another program I was looking at possibly using. We will see if freecad stops being useful I may try it. My printer is a simple PLA model. From what I understand the resin printers are more expensive but certainly knock PLA out of the park in terms of small detail quality. I may be wrong though, I'm not terribly familiar with Resin printers.

I finished up a second design tonight and made my first test print. This 0-99 dial will be for our resident chaos player for use with his Chaos Knights. Will be making two of these and I'll also be making a Nurgle specific one for him soon.

Looks nice!

Yeah so I've hard that the resin printers are capable of small details and that they cost a ton. No further experience here either.

Seems that yours can produce a really good result though!

Alright I'm back from vacation and finished up the last of my Chaos wound dial project for a buddy. His last one needed to be Nurgle themed for his Death Guard force. Here's what I came up with, kept one side as Chaos star and stamped a Nurgle logo on the other side, offside and asymmetrical to help push that Chaos theme of course. Net couple updates after this will be painting related... finally

So I did a fun little side project for a friend of mine, a Cryptek with... I don't know the new cloak wargear thing it gets? Was a fun little distraction that allowed me to try some things I haven't been able to apply to my own forces. Hope you guys like him.

Finished the re-basing work on Morathi as well as making a few small changes, notably a colour swap on her inner robe and a bit more highlighting on her outer robe. Changed the flame brazier too not that you can see it in this shot. Entered her in a painting competition over the weekend and somehow managed to steal third place in my category. There was some amazing work on display there over the weekend and I'm stunned and humbled to be counted amongst some of the top runners. This has definitely given me a shot of motivation to get back to work and hopefully pump out some good pieces worth showing off.

Will pull out the photo booth and be taking better shots of the updated Morathi soon.

Thank you very much guys. Just cleared off my painting table to make room for new projects so will be setting up the photo booth before I get cracking on the next project.

I finally got around to taking some photos of Morathi! I'm notoriously terrible at taking good photos so hopefully these turn out ok. Usually have them too bright and blown out. Sadly the base didn't show great at all, the marble is too washed out and the blood looks very flat, in person it's more translucent. Lemme know what you guys think, all comments and critiques are very welcome.

Edit: Really didn't like the photos so I retook them with different light. Posted new shots in new post.

Thanks Gobert, means a lot to me. There were some amazing entries this year as usual, I'm genuinely surprised I placed amongst them.

There was a keeper of secrets with some of the smoothest and most professional blending I've ever seen and a bloodthirster done entirely in blues and whites to make this amazing winter theme, it was so different from the normal red bloodthirsters you see it was so eye-catching.
