Military Base - 3D Printed
« on: 13 September 2019, 20:34:13 »
So, I just got most of this built and finished for a Game I'm running tomorrow.

the Walls, Command Centre, and Mech bay are all 3-d Printed. The board is hexed with 1.75-inch hexes. The Base...(Base ?) is CNC Milled Styrofoam.

I will have more boards (currently drying the water effects on some) , and I will take photos tomorrow of the whole she-bang!

Nice job

The game board was made on a CNC mill to cut the shapes of the board and the hexes for the hill base.

The Base I 3D printed from the following Files:

MECH REPAIR BAY: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2603143

And the third building in the base is an IWM Warehouse: https://ironwindmetals.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=8818&osCsid=gl1f1b9m2dfce20l6cu2eqfs60

I am in a need of some proper Battletech city walls, but printing them seems to expensive. But i also like Yours. :)
