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.

K2SO is done. Check out the project page. I finished it a few weeks ago, but I just got the pictures done. I am pretty sure I could have done it better. However, as in all things, hind sight is 20/20. I am learning how to paint again. I used to paint with enamels, but I am now using acrylics. Uses a totally different technique. The pictures are up in the K2SO gallery has been updated as well.

I have also been printing out some miniatures to paint. Check out the Lovecraftian 3d Prints - there are lots more pictures in the gallery. In case you don't know, I am a big H.P. Lovecraft fan. I love the Call of Cthulhu RPG published by Chaosium. So, I printed a few things and painted them up. Keep in mind most of the pictures are extreme closeups. You can even see the 3d printer layer lines. But like I said, I am learning again. Printing small has it's own set of challenges as does painting with acrylics - I used to paint mini's with enamels... way different.

I am starting up on the Talking Skull project again. I believe I have everything I need to finish it up, so it is next on the list.

TTFN,

Keith

I got a bit of painting done this weekend. I have finished the K2SO half-scale head and pictures taken. I am trying to get the time to finish up the project page. I went for a newer looking K2SO head, I really did not have the time to weather and beat it up... I kind of like it this way.

I also did a few more prints. I am a big H. P. Lovecraft fan and did some Cthulhu related prints. I am going to dump them all on one project page. The basic gallery is up, I haven't annotated anything either... another thing to do... These prints are getting me back into painting miniatures again.

TTFN,

Keith

I finally got the rest of the photos and a short writeup done for the XY Plotter project. The gallery for it has been updated too. Not a lot to add here, but I did list off the mods I did to it. Check it out.

K2SO has a new head! After about 30 hour of printing... Yeah... I seriously under estimated how long it took to print originally. The head and neck are assembled. Just needs paint and final assembly onto the base.

Still working on the Talking Skull. Parts are ordered for the sound bit and I am also working on integrating a distance sensor to tell when someone walks up to it to trigger an audio file. Pretty trickey stuff. The base code works to move the jaw in sync with the audio in, but I need it to start upon detection. It will happen, just taking me a bit longer than I would like. Go figure...

TTFN,

Keith
