It’s not there yet! Told you so!

So the guys from The Painting Phase had a talk to Rhys Knight, the community manager at My Mini Factory. And he of all people who are into 3D printing has said the following:

„Actual 3D printers themselves are nowhere near as plug and play as YouTubers would let you believe. They are like printers from the 80s.“

And if THE GUY making 3D printing his sole business concept is saying that I tend to believe that. Especially since it strengthens my point: 3D Printing is witchcraft and black magic!

So what’s the point of this post? None! Other than that it shows I’m right! 8) *g*

Ende Gelände! … Ne, Käse! Genau das Gegenteil!

Die lieblichen Chaoten drüben von https://www.ontabletop.com (ehedem Beasts of War) haben sich überlegt: Wir alle haben zwar gewaltige Berge an Minis (bemalt, unbemalt und alle Stadien dazwischen) aber so richtige Berge, Wälder und Felder nicht. Also Gelände zum drin Spielen. Häuser, Türme, Ruinen, Raumhäfen und so weiter.

Was liegt also näher als im Okt…. Orkt…. SPORKTOBER [1] (also vom 01.10. bis zum 31.10.) zum gemeinschaftlichen Gelände bauen aufzurufen.

Natüüüüüürlich mit einem Haken. Einen kleinen. Es wird darum gebeten den Prozess und Fortschritt in deren eigenem Projektsystem fest zu halten und auf den sozialen Medien zu teilen.

    4. Build, paint, and share your terrain project throughout October, from the 1st to the 31st.
