    Reaper Bones Fire Giant Bodyguard

    So I have been a bit distracted lately... Between kids activities and the gaming table (and getting back intothe gym post injury...) I still managed some painting. Details on my blog: https://sudsystactics.blogspot.com/2019/11/11nov2019-fire-giant.html

    Zombie Hunter

    My print and paint of Sculptor's Zombie Hunter I printed it in ABS a few months back at 50% scale. It has sat so long, I'm giving any information based on memory along (take with a grain of salt...). Layer height/resolution: 0.1mm No supports required, brim used due to ABS (likes to shrink...

    Macharius Vulcan (Patoroch) build

    So, while I haven't been posting much lately, it is not because I'm not building! I have been working on a Macharius Vulcan I'm going to give one my gaming buddies. Bit by bit, this is the largest model I have built out of paper to date! Now that I am complete, I will have to work on...

    Print & Paint: Spiderman Bust 1.04

    So, here is my work in progress of Spiderman Bust 1.04 by BerlinRockz off of Thingiverse. I printed the model on my Lulzbot Taz 5 at a resolution of 0.1mm (height of each layer) using PLA (Filacube PLA2). I did scale down the bust by about 50%. I primed the model with Krylon flat tan camo...

    Sheet metal to paper methods...

    So, I've been ruminating about what kind of sheet metal design methods I can apply to my paper model building. Some of the bends, folds, and rolls sorta work out, but not always. Then I ran across something that really did transfer quite well. While I've employed some of the methods used here...

    Proteus II (modernized RT era Landraider) by Patoroch

    Started a new project during that Tapatalk mess that I didn't post here yet. I created this specifically to introduce papercraft modeling to another game enthusiast site called YakTribe (where you can find the PDFs for the GW Specialist line of games like Necromunda, Mordheim, and...

    Yamaha papercraft preserved!

    A friend at work is really into motorcycles and found out I like to build vehicles out of paper. He mentioned Yamaha had a page, and I regretfully told him they took down their papercraft page. So, sometime during his break time, he spent some search engine time and found this gem of a link...

    Pepkura tutorial request...

    I found a Pepkura tutorial, dating back to 2004 (thankfully with pictures intact from the switchover). I just got into Pepkura enough to acquire a license add it to my 3D software collection. Now, I need to learn to use it; but it would greatly help to have a current one since the software...

    Turrets, tires, heavy bolters, oh my!

    Been too long since I posted about 3D printing! Well, I got my print surface all leveled when I friend of mine asked me to do some printing for him in exchange for some laser cut parts (he has a laser cutter). You cannot ask for a better trade... He even bought me some great high quality PLA...

    Y-Wing, father-son build

    So I found a Y-Wing paper model that one of my sons asked for. A classic Ghost of Man kits by Drew Hamilton. The Wayback Machine cached site has the downloads still. I will dig up the link in a future post. The era of the archived site seems to indicate the early 2000's, and I believe the 3d...

    Armored Car - Patoroch T19 Warga

    I found my next project Zealots! I decided to create a recon platoon of armored cars. Starting with Eli Patoroch's WH40K Gothic SF version of the French Panhard AML 90 armored car. It was NOT an easy choice, like reality, it ran right up against the T18 Alvis (Saladin) 6x6 armored car. Which...

    Wargaming rules?

    What games do you folks play? Outside of the 'standard' gothic SF rules (WH40K) I've gotten into Gruntz for 15mm miniatures. I plan on experimenting with an independent publishers rules called "Renegade Scout" from Nordic Weasel Games (on Wargame Vault). The author created a 'retro-clone'...

    Software: CAD

    So, I have two pieces of 3D CAD software I use the most for my models when I design something for 3D printing. First and foremost is FreeCAD: https://www.freecadweb.org/ Second is Design Spark Mechanical: https://www.rs-online.com/designspark/mechanical-software Both do a wonderful job of...

    Necroplex 3D printed terrain

    Here, I'm going to post some of my 3D printed terrain from Necroplex (http://necroplexus.com). I was a Kickstarter supporter and got most of what they made (except the Boss Club). Great thing about this terrain is how it is modular, and made to go with common items such as your standard foam...

    A4 cardstock in the US...

    Just grabbed me some A4 size cardstock here in the US for a very reasonable price point: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MK3VZ92/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 100 sheets of 80lbs cover stock! Printed great, took the clear coat, no warping. Now, on to cut and build...

    Sudsy's (Patoroch) Vulture build

    This Vulture has been touch and go (pun not originally intended, but aviation guys will get it). However, the cockpit results will be worth it no matter what.

    Genet Models 4x4 Transport

    Genet (or Ebbles) Models makes a great basic 4x4 transport inspired by, but not a HUMVEE (unless someone knows what it actually is, in which case, please let me know). I started one today as a 'one day build' attempt. I ended up printing another one on card stock, not to build, but to use to...

    Mass Effect and other models from Thunderchildftc @ Deviant Art

    https://www.deviantart.com/thunderchildftc/gallery/40464078/Paper-Model-Templates Some pretty neat models here! Not sure if anyone found these yet, or if he/she is a member of Zealot already... If so, I apologize for repeating! Got these downloaded and ready to print in the near future...
