15mm Sci-Fi Barricade – 3D Printed Scenery

15mmScenery-Barricade

I’ve started to design as much 15mm sci-fi scenery/terrain as I can before summer, with the hopes of having a sprawling mess of a gaming table for when I can get a proper group together for a while.

First up was a simple barricade, as pictured above – 4 or 5 of these can really help filter movement on the table! All files available from Thingiverse, as per usual – I’ll update this post if I can get better photos after painting.

Silhouette Miniatures

So whilst browsing Google+ one day (yes, someone still uses G+!), I discovered a wargamer playing with some paper miniatures, printed on their normal printer. Just simple silhouettes of modern soldiers, but effective enough for proxies on the cheap.

So I decided to go one better, and 3D print my own equivalent!

If it bleeds, we can kill it

Finished up my predators the other day (one in stealth mode). I went too heavy with too dark a wash, took forever to bringĀ  any life back to this mini.
My 15mm AvP skirmish set is nearing completion though! The Marines are well underway, including an APC converted from a 99p shop toy firetruck. I just wish I’d taken some in progress pics, ah well.

Nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

So I painted up some Xenos this week. I apologize for the photo, that much black doesn’t play well with my potato cam skills.
But these are some Khurusan “space demon” minis, with a judicious bit of greenstuff to round out their heads. Now to get some good marines for a nice Aliens set. Also going to make some greenstuff eggs as objective markers… But my sculpting needs more practice first!
***UPDATE***
I recently got a phone with a much better camera, so enjoy some nicer pictures. There are details now!

Space Lizards!

I finished a squad of Saurians from 15mm.co.uk, and I’m happy with how they came out. The white and yellow spacesuit colours contrast nicely with the green skin. And my highlighting blends nice and naturally, although its not very prominent. I’ve kept the same basing technique as well, so they match my previous squad nicely.
The only thing I need to change is how I do weapons, as I don’t think they look as good as the rest of the model.
Now I have 2 squads, its time to make some nice terrain, and play some 5 parsecs!
Apologies for the crappy pics, I’m working on a ghetto lightbox at the moment!
