Resin, I'm afraid. I'd prefer plastic, but I don't see that happening, barring a lottery win.

I'm going to resize the corner columns a tad and thicken the walls abit, then I'll sent them to the printers.

I have a jungle to do before I start a city, but your work is amazing and might even derail me if I'm not careful ! Congratulations, those look very good !

Oh yeah, this stuff.

Well, I'm having the first few sections made into bronze (I'm going bronze with these to try to maintain dimensional stability as much as possible).

The section currently being made are:

non-ruined, two-windows wide base
non-ruined, two-windows wide base [doorway]
non-ruined, two-windows wide middle 2 story
non-ruined, two-windows wide roofline

With those pieces it should be possible to recreate the buildings from Epic: Space Marine.

The next batch to the bronzer will be the non-ruined, five-windows wide parts (same breakdown as above), and then the eight-windows wide parts after that.

Once the non-ruined parts are down, the ruined parts will be done. I still have some more work that I want to do with those, adding cracks, pock marks, bullet trails, etc.

Sorry it's taking so long, I'm trying to get things right the first time.

Fantastic work,
These look great, Could you not have two moulds one open for the chaps that want the no windows and one closed, that can maybe cast in a clear resin so the windows could just be painted round! As for the roof etc, I personally would just make the flat sections, that way people can make there own roof designs and just bulk up on flat sections to build the buildings as large as there hearts desire! Will defo want some of these they great.

Good work regards epic

Sigh,

Sorry I haven't been moving these along faster. I've been distracted by a myriad of things.

I will keep these in mind though.

What's your plan for final production, Resin?

Wondering if it would be possible to make molds that could be used with plaster of paris (or the like)? For solid models it would probably work, not sure about the ruined pieces.
