Printed Platforms and Ladders

Posted on January 21st, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I’m continuing work on my post apocalyptic table for This is Not a Test. I’m trying to improve the vertical possibilities of the table by adding some height and climbing surfaces to game over. TnT’s rules are fairly brutal, requiring a lot of game time to make unaided climbs – so I’m also printing and […]

Painted 28mm Arcade Machines

Posted on January 5th, 2018 under , . Posted by

I designed and printed a handful of these 28mm scale Arcade Machines late 2017. During the Xmas break, I’ve cleared five of these fun little terrain pieces off my paint station. I considered finding official cabinet art and trying to scale it down, but I suspect the cabinet sides are too small, and the wrong […]

Container Office and More Barriers

Posted on December 6th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I’m still assembling and painting post-apocalyptic terrain for This is Not a Test. I’m hoping to get a TnT campaign started at TCOW, my local gaming club in 2018. For that I’ll need enough portable terrain to cover a 4′ x 4′ table, and now my 3D printer is fully operational again I’ve started cranking […]

Barriers from 3D Printed Parts

Posted on November 13th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

It’s been a month since I last posted, and in that month I have been continuously 3D printing all sorts of terrain pieces on my Anet A8. I’ve had some technical issues with the printer too – the extruder heating element failed ($2 to replace) and my control board appears to have suffered some damage […]

Goodness, 3D printing is fun. I’ve been spending so much time printing parts, teaching myself Autodesk Fusion 360 and tinkering around with my Anet A8 printer that I have struggled to paint anything recently. However I have managed to finish the first batch of my 3D printed 28mm shipping containers. Here’s a bunch of them […]

This is Not a Test: Chemical Factory

Posted on May 21st, 2017 under , . Posted by

I’ve been slowly adding terrain to my collection for This is Not a Test since I was introduced to it a few years ago. On a recent trip through the dustier parts of my gaming cupboards, I found several boxes of “Urban War” terrain from “Urban Mammoth” – both a game system, and a company […]

ADEPTICON – The Loot – Part 1

Posted on April 8th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

I’ve mentioned it before, but AdeptiCon was incredibly crazy busy! I did, however, make a little bit of time to do some shopping. First up, I finally bought models for my first ever TNT warband (above). I’ve always been partial to the idea of the …

This is Not a Test: Sculpting Pig Iron Productions

Posted on February 8th, 2017 under , . Posted by

For many years now I’ve wanted to sculpt 28mm figures in green stuff. This year I’ve resolved to make an effort to improve my sculpting skills. However rather than attempting to sculpt a full figure from scratch, I was looking for a smaller piece of work to get started. That’s when I realised I need […]

A Fistful of Turkey

Posted on November 29th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

     So, having some free time on our Thanksgiving Holiday, Ali and I decided to get in a game for our This Is Not A Test campaign, with a decidedly festive bend. After all, what better way to celebrate the holidays in the Wasteland…

   Well, I promised you a grand finale, and here it is! A whopping 11 more models to finish off my Post-Octopalypse painting challenge, bringing my personal number to… A lot, and the club total to even more.   First I’d like to in…

   Well, it’s the end of the third week of our Post-Octopalypse, and considering I was only expecting to get everybody to “table-ready”, I am very pleased to report that I got enough figures to that stage to feel safe bringing you FIVE comple…

Post-Octopalypse Week 2: Double Trouble

Posted on November 15th, 2015 under , , , , , , . Posted by

   Yeah, I know, that wasn’t creative at all. I just stole Second Class Elitist’s week one title and changed the cliche reference. But at least it gives a degree of consistency.   That’s about where the commonality ends, though. No …

Posted on November 4th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

   Ok, so, I figured WIP Wednesday was a good way to show off my post-Octopalypse work. Especially considering I expect to start a lot more than I finish this month. Thing is, we are planning to play both Dark Age and This is Not a Test here …
