Wow, I love the detail on those prints. The building WIP is looking good too.

What thickness of XPS are you using?

Woah - I'm amazed by the amount of replies! Thank you all!

Replying to the more specific questions:

What thickness of XPS are you using?
I generally cut my XPS with my proxxon cutter. Honestly, it's a VERY CRAPPY tool, highly inaccurate and all, but does the job for this kind of buildings.
This considered, I generally try to cut a 5 cm thick XPS into four sheets, so they range between 1 and 1.5 cm each.

May I ask when you were able to visit? I was last there in 2011
I went to Ganzi/Garze in 2019 right before the lockdown - it was a fairly intense trip, mostly hitchhiking and local busses, and i made it to a local artisan who made pottery out of black clay. I spent there 3 nights and did my own tiny pottery thing while living with his family!

...Speaking of which, starting from a picture found online we selected two first vases:


...and we sculpted our own!


Updates soon-ish, real life permitting. :)

Cool thanks. I built some ruins recently but they are only 6mm thick, next time I'll double up the foam and your walls look great.

Those pots look really good and I like the look of the black clay.

Some door frames... Shutters will follow, I'm still not sure wether they'd look better printed or hand-made.



Cheers,

Ssso.... I've been looking for convincing tibetan miniatures around and other than three porters with Yaks at copplestone and elsewhere some tibetan monks without pictures on the site I didn't found much.

Frustrated, i started doodling...



...and by the end of the day I had done this.





So yeah, my first 28mm miniature ever. :)

Cheers

Fair point. it's weird how height variations in miniatures feel a lot more unacceptable than in real life.

Anyways - I'm calling this done.



C&C welcome, happy to hear ideas for the future!!
