Port Edward - The beginning and real value for money?

 I think I have mentioned before on the blog my desire/plan to present an 18th century raid on a Port.

In all the notes I’ve made on the war between Scotia Albion and the Duchy of Comyn, Edward Island and its main Port ( Port Edward) has always been earmarked as the setting. For many reasons I haven’t done much with the imagi-nation campaign but I do hope to change all that next year.

So with the advantage of 3D printing I thought it was time to start printing buildings to populate the Port,

my aim is to have a built up area taking up a 5x4 area for what I envisage will be a large skirmish game.

The first few buildings are done, a rather impressive Inn, a warehouse and two houses - tower house and the Port Administrator.

The  buildings have been printed at 90% their normal size!. I have taken ideas on layout etc from Whitby and Port en Bessin and more will be revealed as the project progresses.

As to the second part of the post, like many others I use and electric mini drill for working on conversions of figures etc. I’ve had the set for quite awhile and it was a gift from my mam and dad but it was only yesterday I found the paperwork for it. Bought in 1985! Without tempting fate I think it’s done good service and definitely has been very good value for money.

Keep safe everyone

Those are really nice! And big! Port Edward is certainly going to be a showstopper.

How long does it take to print buildings like these?
