Finally got some paint on my 3D printed order tokens.

Not liking the way they're turning out so far, and may scrub and repaint.

Will prime with a lighter grey so I can use an oil wash on them...

They look good but if you're serious I'd just hit them with another coat of black primer.

Have been thinking about doing a map campaign, and thinking about how to make a visually appealing and functional map. Thus...

Hex is 7.5 cm across, with holes for 3mm x 3mm magnets. This one is completely flat - a plains hex if you will. The idea is to make mountains, rivers, hives, etc. I'm currently thinking the idea through...

There are plenty on thingiverse it seems, I looked for "hex tiles".

 

Not sure about using magnets for these though. You would need 6 for each hex tile and I rate the risk of messing up polarities quite high. I think the more traditional approach might be better.

Excellent points on the other Mighty Empires tile designs out there.

 

However, I find the existing designs not to my taste for two reasons:

  1. The tiles are smaller than I would like
  2. The variety of terrain types is not what I want

 

Today's Titanicus progress...

 

Got my 3D printed press mold of my Legio Lupos logo in the post:

...and using some ProCreate and a drop of hair clipper oil as a release agent, was rewarded with this:

Super chuffed about how it's coming out. Not sure if I want to blend the edges into the carapace or leave them.

 

I'm leaning towards blending after everything cures.

If you're going to magnetize the tiles I'd add the magnet to the bottom of the hex and use sheet metal or a surface with little magnets sticking up, not magnetizing the hex sides.  There's no reason to magnetize the hex sides if they all stick down to the surface of the board, they'll hold each other steady.

Though this looks like a hot mess, there's logic to it...

gallery_8852_16193_180831.jpeg

To make sure my base has good weight, I poured in a metal shot and epoxy mix after I'd placed magnets. The magnets are for my storage system and optional.

What I failed to expect was the metal shot wanting to sick to the surface of the magnets, so I had to clean them off multiple times while the epoxy was curing.

Not perfect, but it will work!

First coat of spackle applied to my Generarium terrain piece.

gallery_8852_16193_129647.jpeg

I've taken off the big "generators" till the first coat of paint goes on...

Needs at least one more application and guard rails for the walkway in front. Maybe a tech priest or two?

Some tanks in the front courtyard would be nice too

Impressive work.

I agree.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.
