For today’s progress (and its coming daily, tomorrows stuff is already printing) we have 3 hellhounds fresh of the priming, and the first camo scheme test! I’m trying to go classic IG camo scheme on these, I quite like the result, it's a bit involved to be doing 30-40 tanks in but let's see how far I get with batch painting these.

Something tank company is coming this way I think, but for today I have something that provides a bit of reach.

Reach out and etc...

The barrels on these are just wedged in there, since I am planning to make a medusa variant barrel soon.


I’m also testing an infantry autocannon design right now, so I can re-base my infantry with a bit more accurate weaponry. Especially for support squads, this should get me a long way I think, using the leftover engineer and spotter models I still have.

Chugging along nicely I think:

Can't say I immensely enjoy army painting half a dozen IFV's like this but they be done. Though I do now realize I will probably need 3 more to transport the support squads and snipers I would like to attach to the formation.

next up probably my last mayor prints for this faction until I've painted more, I have printed 7 more Leman Russ tanks, including 4 mars pattern ones for variety. Luckily since my first tank prints Mkhand uploaded alternative designs for pretty much all russ turrets, including two alternative vanquisher turrets, so I replaced the old one with the big bell on the end with something a bit more reasonable.
Assuming I can get myself to paint all this I might end up printing 3 more hulls sans sponsons, for the conqueror and executioner variants (I think those are the ones) and some tank destroyer and thumper variants as well should I wish to play as a tank legion. But first let's paint these 10!

By the way, how thick have you made the barrels on your tanks and those autocannons?

The autocannon is 0.8mm at the thinnest print and printed just fine, the tanks are about 1.4mm at their smaller points, but thinner for the hull lass cannons. (not my design, straight from Thingiverse) the chimera rear weapons are 0.2mm at best and what we call a bad idea. Half of them dissolved in the cleaning alcohol and I expect the rest to break of come turn one of my first game.

It's an older form 1+, its almost venerable and the chaos gods know how long it will still last, the last repair session was 750 euro! and they stopped supporting it now.

Bit of firepower today, some far range and some up close. Hellhound flame tanks and basilisk SPGs.

Oh my, I seem to have failed in updating this topic here,

In the past weeks, I have designed and printed some dozer blades to create some variety in my chimaera based vehicles. I have also done a test of my intended scheme for re-painting my infantry on a support squad with my printed auto cannon.

Thanks Chaps!

Norto, yeah, resin quality definitely makes a difference. That being said, there are a LOT of other things that can go screwy as well.

Malika, honesty compels me to say those are actually dark realm miniature infantry, not prints!
