New Stuff for free and sale and future

I have a bunch of previews to post today. First I’m releasing 3d printable components to replace some of the laser cut parts on my infinite castle design. Namely I am providing a wall section that can be downloaded on thingiverse.

I still have to finish the gate on my kickstarter fort but I have finalized previews of sizes. I still must design a gate door. The smallest size will be about 7 inches square on the interior space. Sizes go up from there by adding fence sections. Click on images to expand to large previews. The concept is a boarder fort or trading route fort built on ruins. I believe it will also be passable for a humanoid or barbarian fantasy fort. For kickstarter rewards I’ll design some more ruined stone walls or maybe a faux cave entrance.

I tried to make an orc in ten hours and didn’t quite make it. ¬†This guy took about 17.5 though a couple of those hours were spent resolving some complex mesh integrity issues. I released a free early version of this on thingiverse and a 3d print version can be had on shapeways. I’m going to order an ultra detail print and try resin casting this fella for production. It will certainly be a challenge but I think it can be pulled off despite some intricate nooks like the mouth.

My final bit of business is another free fort that I am posting on thingiverse for the short term. It is a large bailey involving 21 printed pieces. I am taking down older models at this point to clean things up and basically eliminate the work I did when I was still learning. We all have to start out or start over somewhere, but having work around that looks like it was made by a drunk 15 year old no longer serves.

I’m uploading some recent photos of freelance work for Solar Echoes, 7 figures including a transparent figure with injectable chambers. I am including grey and blackwash preview of my final wall design for a resin fort I hope to kickstart, I just need to finish the front wall. Bethel Woods still has some time left on its kickstarter (scroll down), large previews can be found on my july post

Thought I’d publish an update on things since it has been a while. I have been designing some game pieces for a couple of gaming outfits.

I have completed two figures for the Solar Echoes RPG and will be completing a suite of 7 total figures for them in late august or early september. I also completed 4 figures for Garphill Games located toward the end of this post. The Solar Echoes figures will be sold through their shapeways, the Garphill figures will be resin cast for a Bethel Hill board game.

It doesn’t look like much but I have redone and cast each part of this at least three times. I end up not liking the cast or the way it paints. Things should be moving along now as I think I’ve worked out all the kinks. I am putting the triangle tower aside for now in favor of a less creative square one. I have never done a kickstarter before and I figured out if I do the triangles it will force me to sell giant hexagon forts which I’m sure is a bad idea for a first run. The fort is 3d printed and then the 3d prints are heavily modified by hand before casting. Enjoy the rest of the images.
