Let's split the difference: Tomahammer!  :D

In any case, very nice Mecha! (Or is that 'Mech'?)  ;)

Warhawk! ;)

Superb. I've been thinking about printing one of these just as a one off as my old rpg character drove a Warhammer.

It's a shame a lot of the 3d files have been yanked from thingiverse and elsewhere in the last few weeks. Bloody Topps and pesky IP law...

Thanks gents!! :)

Great stuff gents  8)

But Andy, I'm so disappointed that you haven't scratch built them and have succumbed to this printing malarky  lol ;)

I would love to mate, but during this shitty lockdown I seem to have become busier than before.  :'(

Have you tried this site.....

This guy, Matt Mason, seems to convert a lot of the Mechwarrior Online mechs for 3d printing. Everything is on there....just not the classic designs.

Niceeeee...

When you do, i recommend using Meshmixer to split the models into various parts that you can glue down later. I managed to split my 7-8 print time down to 4 hours(approx) and save a ton of resin.  Also, i've printed them at less of a resolution than i would 28mm minis. It shows a few more lines, but I'd rather that than run the printer overnight. If you ever need an advice just PM  me. I'm not an expert but i have learned a couple of things in the last few months.

Anyway my MWO Archer is nearly finished. I may dig out some tank decals from somewhere to add unit numbers and add some foilage to the base.

That is my desert base. I know its slightly dark, but it means, at a stretch, I can use it on your forest boards too.

Thats me printing off a Commando tonight too. So, so far, we have an Atlas (100ton), Warhammer (70ton), Archer (70ton), Rifleman (60ton), Urbanmech (20ton) and a Commando (20ton).

I'm thinking of a Locust (20ton) and an Enforcer (50ton), too. I figute thats a good start?

Yeah, you might be right Colin.

Thats him printed off anyway. I need to fix the gun barrels a wee bit. And the arm is a bit messy too for some reason! ???



I've tried something a wee bitty different for the Urbanmech. Not great camo for a desert! lol

Urbanmech in urban camo.

Very nice colour scheme & great execution.

Stencils or hand painted?
