Well dammit, I did a place of worship last year for my Space Hulk, so that's out!  lol

I guess I'll do a Turnip28 Root Shrine, might be mobile, might be a static building.
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

An armored turnip carrier on tracks dragging roots behind it would be well cool.

I was thinking of your Space Hulk entry when the polls closed! All those pews... :D
Good luck for this one, it should be good.
And thank you for introducing me to Turnip28, which I had never heard of before, sounds cool!

Groan, I might dock you some points for that one  ;)  :D

Also, some essential reading for Dr Mathias, if you can get hold of it:

I had also not heard of the scale creep problem with 28mm Turnips.  :D The way things are going these days, we may be awash in 54mm turnips masquerading as 28's before long. You would think a "root" vegetable would stay a little more anchored in its size and not fluctuate as much...  lol

I had a little bit of time to devote to this project this week.

The concept will be a heavy cart or wagon with a religious-looking shrine/canopy enclosing a resin cast I received from an online acquaintance. It's an eggplant, with a face. Not sure what to really say other than its a strange world out there.

I designed a quick base structure in Tinkercad and printed it off on my Ender3. I also printed a 'Root Oxen' beast (from the Turnip28 Patreon) to pull the shrine. I'm gathering up components and will start building soon.

Oh man, I remember the Enormous Turnip. We had that book at primary school.  :)


Looking forward to seeing Doc. M's finished project.

I decided that my block shape would be petty dull to work with, so I took a trip to the local thrift shop and vowed to leave with something I could use. I ended up with a Disney pull toy sailing ship. I took it apart and am filling in the gaps. I also built some wheel axles.

Getting close to being done with the build phase. Need to cut bases and finish up the canopy. Created a pillow out of Milliput, and the support structure for the canopy.
