Pop-up Bollards, Direction Arrows & Gate Indicators (Hayland Terrain)
These little beauties come from Hayland Terrain’s “Gasland Girders and Gates Pack”
There’s a host of other useful bits in the pack but I wanted to show these off. They were printed on the Cetus-3D in PLA using a 0.4mm nozzle, 0.2mm layer height and a 13% infill.
Here's a standard Hot Wheels vehicle amongst the direction arrows. All of the bollards, gate and direction markers are the same scale (20-25mm). Obviously, if you want to play at 28mm or 6mm you can scale them up/down accordingly in your slicing software prior to printing.
Painting wise, all I did was prime them black, then roughly overbrushed them in gunmetal before the arrow and number details were painted yellow. Finally, I hit them all with a muddy black wash and now that they are fully dry they’re ready to take their place in my asphalt arenas.
TV Cameras for Gaslands
If you’re hosting a global pay-per-view carnage event, then you’d better be sure you don’t miss any of the action. Here’s where these TV Cameras and Gantry Towers come in from Hayland Terrain’s "Gaslands Desert Track and Cameras Pack” (https://haylandterrain.com/collections/gaslands/products/gaslands-desert-track-cameras-3d-printable)
These were printed in PLA on the Cetus-3D at 0.2mm layer height and using a 20% infill.
Quick to print, quick to paint and base, all ready for the upcoming action!
Junk Yard scenery
As part of Hayland Terrain’s “Universal Tile – 28mm Terrain” Kickstarter there was a collection of files labelled as “Junk Yard Set”. I printed them out a while ago for use in another project, but they never got used and as such, I didn’t take any ‘before’ photos of them fresh off the printer. In fact, they were done so long ago that I can’t recall which machine I printed them on or what settings I used beyond PLA and my standard 0.2mm layer height. The level of infill is a mystery, but by weight I’d say between 10 to 20%.
Here’s the finished models – the crusher and large/small junk piles.
Here’s the reverse view with a Hot Wheels car thrown in for scale.
Ramps for Gaslands
These ramps come from Hayland Terrain’s “Gaslands Track Accessories” pack.
There’s a bunch of other useful bits in the pack (tyre walls, wheel stacks, crash barriers and drums, etc.) but I have already made a whole bunch of those for earlier projects, however the ramps appealed to me. They come in two sizes and can be used as a pair (steeper take-off ramp, shallower landing ramp) or else print two of each for matched pairs.
Since they are 3D files, you can scale them up/down as much as you want, although I wouldn’t go too mad on upscaling as the diamond patterning is going to look more like difficult terrain rather than texture!
These were printed on the Cetus-3D in PLA at 0.2mm layer height using a 13% infill. They were then primed black, sponged with a metallic gunmetal and then hit with a brown wash to dull them and make them look used.
As usual, the Hot Wheels car is shown for scale.
At the moment, Gaslands doesn’t have any official jump rules, but I’m more than happy with the wonderful house rules Dave Graffam has provided for us: outworld-studio.com - www.outworld-studio.com/gaslands/pdf/Falling-and-Jumping.pdf
Gaslands Scenery from Hayland Terrain
More scenery from Hayland Terrain, this time from their Fantasy Scatter stretch goal pack from their 28mm Fantasy Scenery - Dragonbite – OpenLOCK Kickstarter (not sure if you can buy this from their website), as well as some more bits from the Gaslands Street Accessories pack (https://haylandterrain.com/collections/gaslands). Just to show that you can often mix 28mm stuff in with 20mm scenery, so don’t be afraid to improvise.
All were printed on the Cetus-3D in PLA using a 0.2mm layer height and 13% infill for the brick pieces and 20% infill for the two bits that have metalwork, just to help prevent breakages.
A closer look at the 28mm bits from the fantasy scatter pack.
And here's the 20mm bits from the Gaslands Street Accessories pack.
Now, as they’re based and painted, it’s onwards to more stuff…
Gaslands Girders from Hayland Terrain
Apart from Gaslands (obviously), these would work just as well with any tabletop game - I’m especially thinking Fallout Wasteland Warfare.
These are from the Gaslands Girders & Gates pack and the Gaslands Street Accessories pack by Hayland Terrain.
They have been printed in PLA on the Cetus-3D at 0.2mm layer height with a 13% infill.
Here's a couple of closer shots.
Now that they’re based (i.e. had some additional grit added in places) and painted/washed, I can move on to something else.
I really like the idea of having billboards in the playing area. Not only do they make things harder by blocking line of sight, they can also add atmosphere when you put suitable adverts/posters on them.
These particular 28mm Broadside Billboards are by the talented Curufin on Thingiverse.
They were printed in PLA on the Cetus-3D at 0.2mm layer height with a 20% infill. Once painted, they will be decorated with a variety of adverts – some from the http://Gaslands.com downloads area, and others designed by myself in Photoshop.
The printed and glued billboards as well as a couple of items from the previously mentioned Hayland Gasland collections of Weapons and Armour Plating.
The first batch of finished billboards shown with the WIP Carmageddon car for scale.
Carmageddon outta here!
Just in case anyone is interested in the Carmageddon car that appeared in an earlier post, here’s some more info.
The model is “Car toy - 3DRacers, RC car” by 3DRacers - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:647389
It was printed on the Cetus-3D in PLA at 0.1mm layer height with a 20% infill, mostly to protect the wheel spikes and split axle pins. Since the model also comes in a split file version, you can just do the fine/small detail parts in high-res/slow mode and the other bits as usual. It’s also handy that the files are split up since I can definitely see me printing more of the wheels, ram and rear bumper for future kit-bashing projects.
The additional (grey and white) parts are from various Games Workshop Warhammer 40k sprues (courtesy of my bud Morgan Darkstar, thanks dude!) and the weird-looking skull on the crossed bones hood ornament is from the Skulls and Skeletons section of a Kickstarter I backed by Kevin Rau (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1978496658/rpg-tools-rpg-wargame-3d-printable-items) because I couldn’t find my fantasy bits-box and was too impatient to hunt it out!
