Aluminium tube (1/16" diameter 50mm long) with very fine brass wire wrapped around it (I drilled into the tube so that the tail of the brass could be held in place while I wound it onto the tube). Glued in place with a quick smear of super-glue to hold it in place. Then it is a bit of putty to tidy things up. I haven't decided how to represent the explosive tip yet but it won't be difficult :) .

Not a huge amount of free ones out there. Sketchup is good for blocky things like this and I find it's fairly quick and easy to use. I'm slowly getting the hang of zbrush which is great for organic designing. Sketchup has had many upgrades over the years so I think it is much more intuitive now.

Had a little tinker with the Rivet board 2.0 today. Consists of 3 full sections, 2 x trench staights, 2 x trench corners and 2 x trench T-junctions...for now! Also tried a few of the drop in scenery parts such as woods, dragons teeth, large craters and tank wrecks, all seems to be coming together, I better get some painting done!

All of this was done on sketchup (except for the bag of apples, that's GS, and the barrel with fish coming out, that was added to on Zbrush however the printer couldn't get the detail I wanted.
I also sculpted a giant snail to draw the thing along too. I'm waiting for a warmer night before printing it though as when temperatures get too low the printer siezes up and doesn't lower which could possibly do some serious damage as the forward/backward and sideways still work and it still extrudes, I don't know if it has an inbuilt sensor to stop that sort of thing happening but I don't want to find out.

Few ships from a commission set here




And some ships from the recent couple of waves. I have stopped buying every single release as ships like the Ferengi for instance I own a couple and doubt I will ever use them! Just collecting the new ships from now on I think and the occasional op set I come across which throws up specific ships and abilities, the hood in this group was interesting to use in a recent game for instance!

I have also been working on another expansion set for the Space station we sell. This set turns it into a big beefy command post type base, stands nearly 12 inches tall!



pretty useful in a lot of systems, for instance I will be putting it to work in trek, Armada and Halo fleet battles in the future!




Fully backwards compatible with our previous upgrade sets too, I'm a gamer at heart and I love having OPTIONS! building different variants and making the rules for them is fun too!

 


The upgrade kit consists of the following, the lower arms simply slot over the little nubs and sit comfortably in place and if you take the time to pin or magnetise the upper structures they can be simply replaced as need be...magic!
