dh1992 The design of the GW chapel is immense. There buildings are beautiful and tough competition. We're excited about the concept of our model more than anything.
Plus, once again I stress that the images above are 3D printed concept designs. We have an artist working on detailing the interior and exterior as I speak. When it is manufactured in a styrene material, we're confident that the product will look a lot sharper!

The original plan is to design the initial product at 28mm scale. However, we can scale it down quite easily using software and 3D print it at a variety of different scales although this would make it a tad more expensive!
Well i would suggest picking up the gw chapel for inspiration

And looking at whats already on the market before you commit cash to tooling this up, you may also want to consider getting a traditional sculptor to make some alterations to a resin blank and scan that as a file, CAD stuff is good and all but can be a bit too clinical and polished looking for this type of fantasy period style. GW tend to over exagerate the make do and mend mentality and also slap skulls everywhere as is there style.

Khorne's Fist Not bad as a start. What scales do you plan on doing? Using 3d printers would allow you to easily do 15mm, 28mm, or larger. There are a lot of Inquisitor gamers that would love to see some purpose made 52mm buildings.

ntaw hahahaha tell us how you really feel, Bits.

Excellent points though. Has your company ever thought about getting into this field?

bitsandkits its a bit meh if im honest, as timber framed buildings go you have phoned this one in, if you really want to be taken seriously with this type of thing your really gonna have to push the boat out and do some serious research and come up with something that really sets you guys apart, a period timber framed building for warhammer has been done to death by loads of companies not to mention GW have a pretty amazing plastic kit already, its also one of the easiest entry level scratch build models wargamers can build, anyone with some card,glue and lolly sticks could knock up something like that in an afternoon.

The model is too neat, it looks like its been designed in a computer, rather than built by peasants with draw knives and axes cutting oak beams and in filled with lime plaster, the roof should over hang at the ends and at the walls, where is the smoke stack? the beams look too narrow and too even, but that could just be the photo, also you really need to show a painted version to show people what it looks like on the board.

i do like the idea that it slots together, however im not sure how practical that would be after a paint job.

dh1992 Thanks! A lot of the previous stuff we've done is work for clients which has to take place in complete confidentially. This is going to be the first item we make to manufacture. However, we did make few smaller things we made to test the printers capabilities. Unable to get the photos at the minute but all of our works on:

ntaw I finish here at 3 today as I need to get away. I'll get a model sorted to show scale early tomorrow morning. Thanks!

ntaw Very cool.

Might I suggest throwing down some models from the various gaming systems people on Heresy use to show scale? It will for sure eliminate questions that arise, and help customers to communicate if they want things bigger or smaller in proportion.

<3 3D printers.

Battman Looks good any more examples of what you've made?

New Tabletop Workshop Wargame Scenery

The plastics company I work for have decided on going into Wargame scenery using a 3D printer. Well yesterday, we released pictures of our first Wargame building. This is a variety of highly detailed floors, walls, roofs and other miscellaneous objects that can be easily built up without the need of glue giving the gamer freedom to build whatever he chooses. We plan to experiment releasing different varieties and timescales of the parts so that buildings can be easily changed and created.
I've attached some images and my blog which fully explains our original concept below! Just wanting to know what you guys think!
