wow, love it. we do this sort of stuff in 6th form but no were near as fany as a 3D printer, best we have is a laser cutter witch only cuts flat 2D shapes and a CNC Milling machine witch is a heap of goblin business. My current project is casting metal stuff witch i will use the skills from to cast my samurai warhammer bits (the ones i said i would do ages ago Razz ) would really love to see the finished product Very Happy

Ok chaps as promised here is a little update.

Here are the bits as they arrived. Sorry for the quality but they are white and I have sucky light.



The jet pack needs a overall redesign as the engine grills do not come out as they are to small and the anti-grave nodules are a bit week and will break off soon.

The helmet and missile launcher I am very pleased with all round.
The shuriken cannon has some weak points that I might just remove.
The wings are kind of delicate so might thicken them up a bit. The reason they don’t have flaps is because I was planning on placing coloured acetate there but after cutting out a test bit it is very fiddly and after a while I think I might shoot myself so will insert the wings into the design.



Next up is a pic of the parts blue tacked to an old test min.




Still not sure about the little things like should I get them all printed or should I create a mould to cast my parts in and if so out of what? Would green stuff be strong enough for example or should I reinforce bits with bits of metal.



I will confess I thought this would take longer so I have gotten a little distracted by some sculpting I have started. Might see this though before I go back to the printers as it where as it will give me time to think on it.


Any way that is all for now but I will keep you posted as and when things happen.
I have started to redo the jet pack in a different 3D program as it is more forgiving to mistakes but these things take time.

Let me know what you think and any helpful ideas you might have especially abut casting Very Happy .

Well a little update.

Seeing as the grill did not print out as it was too fine a detail I have gone back and added little jet pods. If you look at modern day jetpacks all there lift is provided by little nozzles.

The wings supply anti-grav lift and directional control while the jet pods provide forward momentum.



Still tweaking things but it is coming along

Decided to do a last moment update of the legs so far

Coming along well



Might have to work on my photography skills somewhat mind you Laughing

Still working on the 3D stuff but slow-going as I have to wait for a license to become free most of the time

Yay little update of the DE legs.. as you can see he is assembled and just have a little bit of work to do here and there before I take him home to paint so he can join his friends.



Still not getting a license to work on the fun 3D stuff but hope to do so some more soon but might not have anything to show for a little while.
Thinking of redoing the helmet to have a emboss skull face over the guardian helm but I am stumped if I know how to do that lol

Feet need redoing.

Hands I might pinch from bits box and the head I will give a go and failing that raid the bits box.
Would be cool to get him ready for the knockout but If not I have already painted his stand in.

One day I will get onto my corsairs again darn it lol

We’ll have I been a busy boy. I have all but finished the Haemonculus with just the base to go cheers



As well as tow objectives.

Also used some Oyumaru to cast some parts for my corsairs out of green stuff. The wings will be far to flimsy though so will have to look for some sort of resin or get them all 3D printed.

Also got a quote for the new wing design from the 3D printers to boot. Just need lots of money now lol.

yay back onto the corsairs
have been playing with the shuck cannon as it had several week points that needed fixing and the hand holds needed spacing out a bit to boot.
the main week points where the reinforcement bar under the main cannon and the ammo feed.
you can see the old and new in the pic below.


Going to send it to the printers to see how much it will cost but with new Tau and now eldar comming out (my main two loves of wargaming) I might not have the pennies to spend on it for a while lol.

Was thinking of making little skull masks for the helmets but that might be easier to do in green stuff and cast by hand.

Painting wise I am thinking of making it so that each squad is painted different to represent a different ship of the corsair fleet.

Any way if anybody has any suggestions please speak up.
And anybody who knows anything about casting in resin give me a heads up

I should really rename this thread to just WIP lol

Been playing with getting some Tau defence lines printed out but at 92 euro I don’t see that happening very soon lol

Any way have a peek.

I am using AutoCAD 2012 at the moment. I was using AutoCAD inventor but It was getting to be a pain getting a license so I went back to 2012 as I use that for my Job and have a license reserved for me.

I think it works out at £70+ to get it printed but I can shop around and see what I can do cos I really rather like it.
Been playing with the idea for making a bat sitrep table to go with it from scratch but I could to that on here to.
