I am rebuilding the site from scratch. But I do have the images and text. Just not and an easily importable form...It is going to take time to fix. I am not going to re-add all of the news articles.

Most links will be broken until I can fix them. Some will not be fix - the old site is gone. No time to fix it.

Time is just flying by. Work has been really busy as well as real life. I finally got all of the bits for the talking skull. I still need to work on the code a bit, well, a lot actually. I will get there. Just going to take me a bit to get it done. I am actually thinking about using a different skull, something full sized. I may 3d print one, or just use one I already have on hand and just do some surgery on it. 

I got a few more of the hireling crew painted up. I also got an airbrush compressor to start using. I am hoping it will help with the quality of the paint job and speed up the process a bit. The last 3 minis can be seen here. I have also painted another 3d print of what I am calling a Dwarven still. It is a mash up of about 3 different prints. OpenForge 2.0's Cut-Stone Floor, and Cut-Stone Pillar; both from thingiverse. They have a lot of other dungeon tile stuff and I used two different bits to do the columns and the floor. The 28mm Still is by KawCleric on thingiverse. I think it turned it pretty good. See it painted here. I need to get the Dwarven brewmiester painted...

I am hoping to get more done soon. So, just stand by...

My basing materials arrived, so I was able to finish up the mini I was holding for that. I put the pictures up in the gallery. I also did a little project write up which you can see here. I also primed a few more of the Hireling Crew and another 3d printed model of a monster as well.

I still haven't gotten the parts for the Talking Skull yet... Though, the package is in the U.S. at least.

TTFN,

I am getting really frustrated with my talking skull. I had bits of it working, then it quit working... I am thinking it is a combination of things. I think the Arduino I was using, overheated for some reason and the install of the Arduino IDE software has something wrong with it. I was able to get it to compile with the web version of the software, so I am pretty sure that is it. I had to order a couple of more bits for the mp3 player part. Once I get those in, I will pick it up again. It shouldn't take too long to get it all put together from there.

I also started painting minis again (First Paints)... Well, some not so mini I just finished one that is 135mm tall (Hannibal the monster), not the standard 25mm. I am 3d printing some and found a couple of mini boxed sets (two old Grenadier Dragon Lords sets!) that I hadn't painted yet. So, it is the start of a painting adventure using new paints (acrylics) and trying different things in basing and finishing that I haven't done before. At some point, I may reprint Hannibal at a higher resolution and do a better job painting. He has a lot of flesh tones showing and as I said before, I am really just learning how to use this new (to me) medium.

You will find them on the new Painting Projects page. I have also uploaded closeups (some are not too pretty!) to the gallery.

 

TTFN,
