It has been a while since I've had an update. With some construction going on in/around the house, most of my hobby goods have been packed up or stored in an inconvenient place. So as construction winds down and I can pull out my goodies, I'll post some long overdue updates before I move on to the next phase of my project (planetside buildings with playable interiors).

My indigenous alien tribal village:


Since my last update, I've added this medicine man brewery and the enclosure wall with livestock watering trough (top left and bottom left, respectively):

I also printed out a number of metroids to play the role of livestock for my aliens.

And below is the chieftain's hut and a feeding trough:


This village's last couple of pieces will be a couple of agricultural areas and a couple of watch towers. That should about cover my needs for this portion of my world-building.

I have a few new sculpts in the works, but with the aforementioned construction those have been harder to work on. Next up, I need to finish up the actual planetside buildings of the town. I'm going to base these on the starship construction tiles, but they will also be designed with removable roof pieces. I'm hoping to get some designs worked up later in the week.

Good job Cook  :D :D :D.
Even if you think they are not good for casting, they are unique.
And you are a good word smith also.Have you ever thought of  compiling your write ups in a single doc?

Thanks for sharing
Keep it up.

Those look amazing!!!

Iíve also looked at the film Planet 51 for inspiration.  Their concept art is awesome too:

Even if you think they are not good for casting, they are unique.

These are all 3d prints, so there is no need to cast them when you can just print more! The first was a free file from Thingiverse, and the other three were digital kitbashes that I did to create a bit of variety. The enclosures and feeding/watering are also some digital kitbashes from a set of fantasy stone columns. The troughs are all my design though.

And you are a good word smith also.Have you ever thought of  compiling your write ups in a single doc?

I don't have much interest in compiling my own scattered ramblings.  lol Would any of that be interesting to someone else? I suspect it is in its best form, just as it is. I do write short stories, and much longer musings, over on the Post Apoc Wargames forum: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/post_apoc_wargames/index.php There is far more fluff and "from the mind of the creator" type stuff in my project threads there.

Thanks, Dan. If I could sketch half that well, I'd have another hobby to contend with. In fact, I might never get anything else done if I could draw that well. I'd probably just do that all day.

I thought you were talking about your Green stuff minis ;D ... You are right off course, print some more is required.

Thanks, Monkey!

Z, I'm 57 pages deep on this project here. On the other forum, I'm 86 pages. There is quite a bit more rambling over there. I hardly even post my post-apocalypse work here. Over on the other (more genre-specific) forum, I've got hundreds and hundreds of pages worth of threads, including battle reports, writings, WIP posts, etc. It can be a black hole, for sure  lol

Yes, well, if it isn't one thing it is another. I feel like I owe you some lost time from all the time I've spent on your thread. lol

I'm also slowly working through your Diablo thread on the fantasy board - you need to stick ll these in  blog so your fans can access it all from one place!
