As it says… a teeny bit of progress.

I managed to get a lighter grey onto the cliff faces…. bizarrely after putting on the light grey layer I noticed some white spots where the dark grey hadn’t covered. One would imagine that the dark grey layer would have made it more noticeable.

I didn’t get much chance to get much more done as I was messing about, trying to get the printer to print something, I managed a wheel and a half. The PLA just wouldn’t adhere to the base.

The other reason is this… I spent ages reading it from cover to cover and then working out how things worked. I got the little tokens that go with the game, six each so enough for more than one tank aside.

Mark A. Morin I am laying the blame squarely at your door 😉 I wasn’t interested in tank battles until your blog got me interested.

The question I am working on is what year and what theatre, followed by what Scale. I can run 15mm Normandy onwards as I still have some Flames of War armour knocking about. From what I remember I have three M4’S a couple of Stug’s and a Mk1V.

I do quite fancy the desert war, but that will incur extra costs. I could become really awesome at 3D printing as I have found a whole host of 1/100 scale tanks not to mention 1/56 scale too. A cheaper, quicker option is to go 10mm, I have terrain and it will fit my small house better. I might see about getting a couple of smaller tanks to see how they look.

I do have a whole host of 1944 Germans and Americans but in 6mm, but I do think they are a bit on the small side. I will give the 10mm a go and take it from there. I am kicking myself that I never bought all of those really cheap Flames of War tanks I saw on Ebay when the rules became less popular.

    1. Probably didn’t help that the shed was very chilly either. If Cura was working I would give it a brim or a raft, but sadly it isn’t. I tried to manually increase the temperature, but it seems to reset to 60.

      1. Those are good points, and mine is a MonoPrice mini, so everything is a little different.
        Cura should allow you to set a custom slice, where you can modify the temps. Then you can manually adjust once the first few layers are down. Chalk up all the mistakes to experience down the road!

  1. That Mark has got a lot to answer for! I’ve seen his tanks and I really like them and I’m sure he’s behind Jedi mind tricks that have made me buy a couple of French SOMUA S-35s in 20mm! 15mm sounds like a good compromise for size and detail, but I’ve been married to 20mm all my life!
