Gaslands - Flags and Gun Towers
If you want to run a Capture the Flag or Monster Truck Smash scenario, you’re going to need some flags.
If you want to scare the beejeebus out of your players in an Arena of Death battle, you’re going to need heaps of gun turrets… unless you suck at rolling 2d6 in which case you only need a couple!
The flags are “Seej Penon, Rounded” flags by ‘zheng3’ from Thingiverse - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:106377
The gun turrets are “Laser Turret - Starfinder - 28mm” by ‘Physirus’, also from Thingiverse – thingiverse.com - Laser Turret - Starfinder - 28mm by Physirus
I printed out a dozen of each on my Cetus-3D. The flags were done at 0.2mm layer height and 20% infill, whereas the turrets were done at 0.2mm layer height and 60% infill. The higher infill was because there’s a fair amount of fine/fiddly detail on the turrets and I wanted to ensure as much strength as possible whilst retaining detail. As it happens I had to trim the top 4-5mm from each antenna on the guns because a couple broke off while I was removing the small amount of support material. I could have trimmed them all down and drilled holes for wire but, hey-ho I have way too much other stuff to try and get done!
The flags were mounted on metal washers to add base weight/make them more stable and I created a 30mm chamfered square base in Tinkercad to mount the turrets on. You could use standard 40mm gaming bases for the turrets, but I wanted something smaller.
The miscellaneous stuff in the foreground is (left to right):
(left) various small armour plating designs I've been working on, (lower middle) some small spiked/bladed wheels, (centre middle) a model based on the car from the video game "Carmageddon", and (right) larger versions of the bladed/spiked wheels.
A selection of the painted flag markers shown alongside the progressing Carmageddon vehicle for scale purposes.
Here are the finished gun turrets.
I think I may need to shade the concrete legs but there’s still so many other bits of scenery to work on…
And lastly, a close-up shot with a Hot Wheels car thrown in for scale.
