Imperial Dauntless

Working on this model for going on 4 years. It's been built, like forever, but I've never used it in a game or finished painting, basing, or detailing it with gizmos or greebles. Needs a good rear turret, a virus-bomb, or maybe bio-wire, or something. Probably some terrible extra armor. I will probably mock something up in tinkercad to finish it up.

It's this kit, which I picked up at Michael's on a lark, and since I figured the scale is about right, and I figured I'd never EVER drop the Zorkmids on GW/Forgeworld air-support, I thought I'd use my extra sentinel pilot and bash summat together.

Will make a .PDF for some Oldhammer-style rules, too.

It's got little magnets in the wings so's you can switch out weapons if you need.

I figure that this is a last-ditch effort for a local down-on-its-luck Guard unit to muster some air presence in the face of superior firepower...

Also, I got this off my 3D printer this morning:

What's Done in June

Every year, I write this January post of like THIS IS WHAT I WILL DO, and then most times it never works out.

I won’t say what I said I would do, but I will say what I have done, and also I have pictures. In addition to the pictured projects, I've primed a squad of rats for Blood Bowl, and a couple of other figures (a Reaper Efreet woman, I think? for Frostgrave)

I went ahead and dropped the $$$ on a 3d printer for my 44th birthday. Below you'll see some Plague Marines of the Old Skewl, topped off with my remixed-space marine pack that I found on Thingiverse (link in a second). It's necessitated learning the new skill of 3d modelling and the printing process, so that's sort of cool.

Just below that, you'll see the thing in various stages of BUILT, with my 1st printed model - a Rankin & Bass-style Goblin from DTRPG (link in a sec)

Here she is, the unchristen'd 3d-Printer, a Creality Ender 3.

Also, I made some flocking with green paint, soapy water, and the contents of my miter-saw's catch bag. Turned out pretty satisfactory, but I haven't flocked anything, yet.

Also, I made nine 8-inch by 8-inch "Ruined City" tiles to be used for Frostgrave or Necromunda. Really, the more Frostgrave I play the more Frostgrave I want to play. The reverse is sadly true for most of the Games Workshop games I play these days. Don't get me wrong, I love the Newcromunda models. I mean the goliaths and escher are great right out the box, and the little bits! o! the little bits. But like, I feel like I'd need to buy like 20 books to get it all, then they'd put out a book that had the rules and no fluff and it would be like twice as much as then fall apart the first time I opened it.

I would feel that way, I don't know if that's how it worked out. Anyways, me n the kiddo had fun drawing the little stones on the surface of the tiles. And the painting was fun, too. Not as $pendy as a $ector Imperiali$, yeah, but like I got a 3d-printer, man.
