Brumbaer / 3D Printing

August 2016. A new project, a new Epic army. After playing Orks for a while, I need something hard hitting, something reliable - Knight in shining armour.

December 2015. The Ogre army expands further. Chariots (ruleswise at least) and Siege Breakers.

November 2015. The story unfolds. More models were added to the Ogre army. Funny enough not one Ogre among them.

October 2015. In Warhammer I used Gentlemen Ogres. For KOW I switched to British Napoleonic Ogres. 

August 2015. After Warhammer Fantasy's demise it's time to try something new. One of those new things is Kings of War. Many Warhammer miniatures can be used to flesh out a KOW army, but some models are unique to KOW. Trombones are one of them To get a model that fits my Warhammer miniatures, I decided to design my own Trombone with a crew fitting the old Warhammer miniatures.

July 2015. My B9Creator version 1.1 printer lived in the shadow of it's successor, more dead than alive. But now with the sister model of the D912HD projector it gained new live.

I like fast hard hitting armies. I'm happy to trade protection for speed and firepower. So an Eldar army is just a kind of natural choice.

Once in a while you set out to hunt for a special goal. Mine was to print something with clear resin.

The one army that I have for most game systems is Orcs (with k or c). So it was only a matter of time, when I would create one for Epic. Having a 3D printer I decided to do an army completely with models designed by me.

June 2014. In all Game-Systems I play, Ork(c)s are among my most favorite armies. In this case I started with terrain instead of miniature.

April 2014. Planes nest, a place for planes to rest their weary turbines. Same style and overall feel as San Thebastion

April 2014. These are the little things that make life easier.

December 2014. I've got my 1.2 machine and the question arises which computer to use to control it? Being who I am, I decided to create a dedicated printer controller, getting rid of the need for a full fledged computer to control a B9.

March 2014. Fortress San Thebastion - home of the houses with silly hats. A fortress to give the Bastion some place to feel at home.

Hard- and Software I use for designing and creating the models.

Up to now I mainly did Eoic models. But the others are just as dear to me and can be found here.

December 2013. One of the reasons to buy a 3D printer was to do miniatures for gaming. My very first model was a Rhino for Epic Armageddon.

December 2013. It doesn't really make sense to make your own Rhino, as they are easily and cheaply available. But flak variants are a different matter. So I upgraded the Rhino to a Stalker. I choose the Stalker instead of the Hunter, because there is no Stalker model for Epic.

January 2014. I really don't like Drop lists. Still no Space Marine Army is complete without some Drop Pods.

January 2014. After so much technical stuff it was time to try something more organic - but probably not too organic. So I settled for some Space Marines.

January 2014. After tank and infantry, the next thing was a plane. A mix between Thunderhawk and Marauder.

February 2014. In Epic Armageddon objectives play a major role. They started out being marked by cardboard markers, but in the meantime miniatures are used as markers universally. So it was just natural to do some 3D printed ones.

February 2014 The B9Creator can be controlled by a Windows PC, Linux Box or a Mac. As I never pass an opportunity to tinker, I added an iPad to the list.

February 2014. It's time to do something for my imperial guard. It has a strong Steam Punk flair and one of the models I couldn't find a steam pinky substitute for was the Sentinel. So I made one.

March 2014. Swear-word  beginning with a B ? Anyone ? Simple isn't it ? Bastion
