3D Printed Elven Tower by Davale Games

I've been a Patreon supporter of Davale Games for quite some time, and a few months back I got this sweet Elven Tower. Well, I finally replaced my old FDM printer with a brand spankin' new one and this was my first print!

I really dislike painting terrain, so usually give it the bare minimum effort required... this tower is no different. Thankfully, it's so cool looking it didn't need much! I will note, I glued the piece just under the roof upside down, but... you probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't said anything!

The paint job was dead simple, as I mentioned. Spray coated in GW Grey Seer. I then used Contrast Apothecary White on the internal, bricky bits to give some depth to the color. I then used Skeleton Horde on all the ligher tan areas, and Tallasar Blue on the shingles. Finally, I used Vallejo Hull Red (which is seriously and perhaps inexplicably one of my favorite colors) for the brown panels and for the undercoat of the gold bits.

Overall I am quite happy with the end result for the minimal effort- a testament to how neat the sculpt is! I am now heavily considering printing a 2nd one... though I really like how it fits in nicely with my elven tree platforms and autumn trees.

Thanks for checking it out!

Tabletop Admiral MESBG Army Builder now Live!

Many of you who have frequented this blog and checked out some of my battle reports may have noticed just how nice my army lists looked! This is all thanks to Andrew, the developer of Tabletop Admiral. Many moons ago he worked on a modular system for his list builder and I volunteered to be the steward of the MESBG data- tirelessly click-clacking away to get your favorite profiles digitized! This builder is AWESOME. I've been using even the earliest alpha versions of it for well over a year and nothing else comes close. Love it to pieces! IF YOU COME ACROSS BUGS PLEASE E-MAIL ME DIRECTLY AT The text below the cut is from Andrew's original announcement on Reddit, and details how to use the builder!

Mordor vs the Beornings LL in Destroy the Supplies at 650.

After my previous defeat at the hands of Connor's Dwarves , I was not looking forward to this matchup! The bears are, some of the boogeymen of MESBG and my "not-so-great" Beast was going to be no match for them! Here we go!

The game room overhaul

After a few years, it was time for a total game room overhaul. I had the space trying to pull triple duty with a couch/TV space, my office, and the game room. Frankly, it was feeling too cramped, looking too cluttered, and the TV was barely seeing any use. So, with the support of my fiancee (6 weeks till the big day! It's a big part of what's been keeping me so busy, dear readers) I did a complete overhaul of the game room.
