The Juggernaut (a Genestealer Cults Galyat Truck proxy)
I run Gaslands as part of an RPG I put together called ‘The Gas Hack’ and one of the missions my group have been tasked to do is to take down a borderlands preacher who has managed to get himself a disused factory, an abandoned mine, and a militia! He’s currently stirring up trouble by preaching anti-Mars sermons to those who support him whilst ‘reprimanding’ those who don’t. Those reprimands take the form of armed raids using his militia (the ‘Sword of the Lord’) and a massive piece of earth-moving equipment, called “The Juggernaut”.
After a lot of time spent searching for a suitable die-cast model that I could use (that didn’t cost an arm and a leg), I gave up and turned to Thingiverse. That’s where I found this beauty – a Genestealer Cults Galyat Truck UPDATED by Gynovin) (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2736962)
It’s scaled to 28mm (1:56) but since I wanted it to be ma-hoo-sive™, I elected to leave it full size.
It was printed on the Creality CR-10 in PLA at 0.2mm layer height with infills of 10-20% for most and 100% for the guns and railings.
Here's the other side.
More pictures. It needs a spot of kit-bashing and painting, but for now, check out this bad boy. The Breaking Bad figures and Hot Wheels truck are there to show off its size!
Thanks to Loupis, the truck finally has a paint scheme.
Nicely understated and functional. I really like the way it has come out.
So I'm finally back up and about after my health took a dip and laid me out for the end part of 2017.
I was asked to help out a couple of friends at my gaming club (W.A.R.P.) who wanted to give the new version (v8) of Warhammer 40K a try. They had the game rules and the models, and I had a new battlemat to try as well as a ridonculous amount of (sadly still unpainted) scenery so I was happy to help out.
The 6'x4' battlemat is the Desert Earth one from Leodis Games Board Matz range. I got mine from their recent Kickstarter (shocker, I know!) and they have since expanded the range to include many more styles.
With the exception of the rear gantry, the tall spire/furnace bits sitting on top and the Games Workshop minis/vehicles/dice, everything else on the table is 3D printed.
Oh, not the long pipes (that's PVC piping) and the tanks of the two storage tanks with ladders on just beyond the fencing (they are Coke cans), but everything else is. Honest!
Some eye candy for the 40K fans.
And there's just something that appeals to me about this Nurgle Mortar piece.
I should also say that the scenery on the table was about a quarter of what I had brought along, which in turn was about a third of what I have printed so far.
I suspect I may need more space soon since the new Fallout skirmish game is rumoured to be about to land and I have a stupid amount of post-apocalypse scenery that needs printing...
