Week 14 - 3D Printing an Army

Something a bit different this week. I had spent a bunch of time on various sites looking for 3D models to use for DZC, as a way to bolster Knightwolfs PHR forces and change up our games a little bit. Unfortunately most of what is out there is designed to replicate something from a video game or movie. This makes for highly detailed models that just don't scale down well or require lots of supports, making the models look bad. So I gave up and started designing my own models, specifically designed and tested to print properly at 10mm scale. The results of the first batch are shown below, Resistance technicals. I have got some PHR units as well but they took a ride in Knightwolfs game case so wont be available for painting until next week.

The paint jobs are a little rough and there are a couple different print quality levels in there but they more than serve their purpose. This will give our new gaming buddy some new toys to use this week, there are another 6 awaiting paint as well, maximizing the unit. The rocket mounts may get reviewed in time to something nicer but these can stand in for a warlords retinue in the future.

I need to figure out what I am going to design next, based on what is economical and I will want lots of. The PHR walkers are going to be based on Mechwarrior designs but will take a lot longer than more trucks for Resistance...
