Printing your own at home is certainly cheaper than buying from Brigade Models' Shapeways shop.

Abundantly. One piece is about 40 cents of resin.

So - the first print was already a success! Minor changes in the supports and it's good to go!





The piece is made in 4 oarts (legs, top and moving engine), with the moving part having four different variants (with and without a container, retracted and protracted).





...It's BIG!

Having a couple of these in a row along with the container stacks would make for a great battlefield for mechs as well, good LOS and cover all the way and it just looks right, big machines next to big machines with people and tiny trucks underfoot.
3d designer, sculptor and printer, at your service!

Thank you all!

Hell yeah! The cool think of container yards is that with few parts you can really fill a table, and change the map every time while always looking realistic. Can't wait to see what people will do with it!

Here's an assembly instruction image:

...and the electricity pylons are up and running as well!



with tiny holes to pass the cables through:


and, with a bit of hot water and patience, you can get to do this too:



Cheers, C&C and suggestions welcome!!

Nice freezing fog damage on those pylons ;)

Must resist getting a 3d printer, must resist o_o lol
Knowing my luck, I would throw the pin and still be holding the grenade - gulp!

So... we MIGHT have started developing another game. A 6mm Sci-Fi one this time.
In fact, we are well ahead in the development, and we're in the "fancy cards" stage already.

Here's tonight game:



The Enlisted forces:



and the Tech:



The table was filled with stuff. the three objectives are the pylons along the central line. In addition to that there are a few extra things to do, so the table was pretty rich of opportunities!

...here the last defense of the heroic infantry resisting against the mighty-yet-not-heavily-armored Zeno mechs.



Close-up of the table:



Cheers, updates soon!

Really liking the big crane and pylons, and having browsed your other STL files, you make 3D printing seem more tempting.

The new game seems intriguing

Thanks! I should also paint it now. :D

I won't lie, home printing isn't a trouble-free activity. But it's fun, and you get to have interesting stuff! :)

Ideally I'll have a pause over August in which i might create more content for the game. In september i'll try to go live with a beta, looking for testers! ^^

cheers,
