3d Printing

I have wanted to get a grand building that I could use in the context of the Italian Wars collection.  I have the wonderful Mirliton sets which I'll post photos of below and wanted to be able to have a place to put a scriptorium in or at different times a grand manor kitchen service a Duke's feast.

I got a 3d printer late last year and have been mainly printing 1/300 stuff for WWII but stumbled upon the Infinite Dimensions site who had a Sciptorium model.  So I paid my money for the files and have been printing it on and off over the past month.

All of the structure is finished - just need to print the doors.  I am very happy with what I have got and think I will be even happier once painted.  I plan on joining the pieces of each floor together so they lift on and off in one piece.

It is very large so don't see it making an appearance often and only then as a centre piece in a town and on the biggest tables.






 



And these are from Mirliton to go with it.  I realise they are slightly out of period - but I am happy with that.





And from Eureka their orchestra to stand on the balcony and entertain.

  1. That will make a splendid centrepiece, especially with those diorama like miniatures.

    1. Thanks mate. Think it will scrub up pretty well. Maybe just as a prop for photos but at this point in my hobby i am very much about the look of a game.

    1. Merci Phil.

      While I still have a lot of miniatures to paint and want to play big battles, I am at a stage where the look of the table and the pieces are the thing that gives me the greatest pleasure.
