WW2 1/72 Scale Self-Propelled Mortar

I had posted this model before not long after printing it but I finished painting it this evening. It will serve in the army of East Borgovia.

1/600 Aeronef Ironclad

I printed this out to match my ACW 1/600 Ironclads and to fit with my 3mm VSF/Colonial foot regiments but I am unsure if I am happy with it at this scale. I am toying with the idea of reducing it down to about 1/1200.

New Hex Terrain Board

My hex terrain board is now setup and ready for whatever hex battlefield I can craft. I used hotglue to fasten the hex border pieces down so they are permanent.

My First Hex Terrain Board

I picked up these hexes last fall from a TMP ad. My wife donated her chalkboard to me to use as the hex table. The wooden frame around the chalkboard acts as a lip to hold the hexes in place. I cut the white hexes to make stop gaps for the flocked hexes to fit onto and make the board usable.

Tonight I sat down and crafted four field hexes. I have many more planned and hopefully another TMP hex purchase coming soon.

3D Printed Hand Grenade and 1/72 Tank

I printed these models off on Friday. The tank before leaving for work and the grenade before bed. The grenade took 11 hours to print. The tank type is an AMR-35 Light Tank. I had intended to print it at 1/72 scale but overshot and hit 25mm. Oh well. Perhaps I can sell it to some Bolt Action gamers. The hand grenade is for our Stargate SG Team costumes. We are doing some cosplay at Dallas FanExpo this year.
