A piece for a Pocket-Tactics derived game we've been working on here at Ill Gotten Games. First of many, I hope! The hex base is 60mm from point to point, so quite a bit bigger than the usual Pocket-Tactics fare.

For the original Pocket-Tactics, head over here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27257

Designed in the amazing TinkerCAD



Printed in ABS at an extruder temp of 230 and a plate temp of 110. 2 shells with a 10% infill. Model was painted in water-based acrylics.

I have printed out other models of yours, but this one is by far the best I've printed so far. It was one of the earliest that I printed on my first 3d printer, and it let me see a lot of what it was able to do. I love the rock that the keep is sitting on, I was worried about the printer handling the overhang, but it did it without any problems! I printed it out at .5 scale for my son, who is into castles. I know that if I get a model that you have done, I can load it right into my printer and print, and not have to change settings unless I want to.

Keep up the awesome work!

Thank you, glad you like it! I tend not to post something unless I knwo it'll print on my machine (though I know our machines all have their kinks). I think the final use for this will make it much smaller, but we'll see. In the meantime, I'm glad you got some use out of it!

It prints out beautifully thanks. I was planning on modelling a set for me and my kids to play but wanted to get my scale right first. I printed your castle out at 0.5 scale and at 0.2mm height, and it looks stunning. Looking forward to printing more of them!

Hey, thank you! Glad you like the models. I had intended these for a game, and some day I'll finish that, but I'm sure they make great toys.

Yes, please finish the game! I'm very curious about what your intention for these is!

Hah, my brain goes off in a million different directions when it comes to these projects, it's a wonder I get anything finished. Thanks, the version of the game this was meant for has taken a new direction, but I think I'll have that before too long.

It looks awesome! Printed in white, looks killer. Am i allowed to blog about it on my Startups Blog? (the Object is NC, so i thought i ask before talking about it on a C blog)

Hey, thsnks! Feel free to blog about it!

WOW! It is printed on a Replicator?

It sure was! Not in color though, I did paint it afterward.

How did you achieve such great detail? Some special printer settings or post-processing?

Well, it was printed at a .10 layer height, which retains a lot of the detail. No finishing technique, though I think painting the models helps the details pop too.

beautiful, I'd love to be able to paint my models like that.

Thank you! I bet you could, just takes learning a couple of tricks.

Oh, I usually put "no derivatives" for the games I post up (mostly because they'll include a rules set PDF). This piece is for a game we're releasing soon, but I didn't mean to put no derivs on this, just force of habit, I think :-P Derive away!

Thank you, and I have done :)

Nice detail. So is the idea that TableTactics will combine all of the Pocket Tactics games into one with new things to defend?

Yeah, sort of. It actually plays like Pocket-Tactics but opens up the core rules a bit so you can customize your own force and allows you to use any models you want to represent your units. Opens the game up to table-top gamers (people who play Warhammer, etc) though provides a game where any and all manufacturers' models can be used (including customs and 3D printed). This tile (and the tiles other I'm about to post soon) are much larger so they can accommodate up to standard 28mm (heroic scale) miniatures.

I love the paint jobs on these models. They really make them look great.

Hey, thank you! Years of painting orcs and dragons are finally starting to show some returns ;-)

Nice model

and Bigger is better!!!

Thanks, dude! Yeah, that usually is the case.
