Printable Eldar Aegis Defense Line Updated

So I took the Eldar Aegis Defense Line that I am having 3D printed and made it into a printable and do-it-yourself product.  Unfortunately, as you can see in the image above, I didn't think things through very well last night.  And of course I hadn't tested it at all.

I took care of that today.  I printed out the original document, secured it over a cardboard box that once held some Pepsi Max, and began cutting.  The results can be seen above, and I'm pretty happy with them.  Once I got done, I saw the poor planning on my part.  There is no way you could reasonably be expected to reuse the template twelve times and expect good results.  I understand this and went to work on a new PDF for your consumption.  With the file pictured below, you just need to print out two and you have all the parts you'll need for your own Eldar Aegis Defense Line.

Don't click on me

So go here and download the new PDF.

What Eldar fortification should I work on next?  I'm thinking about a skyshield/webway portal.

 Thanks for stopping by and let me know your thoughts.

Building our Ruined Building Part 3

Welcome back,  we are ready to add some battle damage to our perfectly rectangular wall sections and get our ruined building finished up.

My tools used were a cordless drill with a 3/8" (10mm) bit and a pair of diagonal wire cutters.  Before I began, I coated all of the foam in PVA glue and a liberal dusting of sand.  I also coated the upper floors to add some texture.  I also used many pieces of cut up sprue to fill in the gaps where it might not be obvious that models were not supposed to be placed in that spot.  I took some pieces of sprue and used them to brace the upper floors.  Although the for sale sign was good thick plastic, it still flexed enough to concern me.  I used super glue to hold the sprue in place.  In the below view you can see the post added to support both levels.  A wire rope with knots was added for decoration.

You can see how the walls not have jagged edges and there are holes from shells drilled though the walls.  The amount of destruction is really a ma…

A look at some Citadel Paints

I was using some of my paints today and noticed something very interesting about the new paint range.  Not all of the pots are made equal.

If you look at #6, inside the blue circle is a cap hold upon device that uses friction to hold the cap open.  Its like a little rubber ramp.  Number 7, bought from the same store doesn't have it.  I bought 4 paints just recently and two had them and two didn't.  And it was random, I bought 2 base colors and only one had the ramp.  The layer I bought had one, but the technical primer did not.

Citadel Piants have 2 problems that I'll discuss:

1. A problem that arises with all of these paints is that when shaken up, a fair amount of paint sticks to the lid and then drips.  Where it drips depends on the cap design.  All of these caps are designed with an inner protrusion that is meant to direct the cap paint back into the bottle.  Lets look at them by type:
The inner protrusion fits snugly against the cap, so almost all of the paint drains …

A Ruined Manufactorum

It is finished.  Or wrecked?  Maybe completely wrecked?  Anyway, I have put enough details, paint etc on the second mega-terrain tile that it is certainly in playable condition.  Because I'm sure you want to get to the pictures, here they are:
