Joined a while ago, have posted a couple of times, but realized I never did an actual introduction thread. So here we are.
I've been a long-time gamer and 6mm SF was one of my starting areas in wargaming, but I've not touched the figures in over a decade now.
Much more recently I got into 1/1200 scale WW2 coastal naval stuff and that plus the lovely Brigade Models microscale buildings has gotten me interested in maybe doing more 2mm/3mm microscale gaming, probably either English Civil War/Thirty Years War 17th C stuff or WW1/Russian Civil War early 20th C. T, both eras I've already done "big skirmish" size forces in 28mm.
I did some coastal terrain for the naval stuff, because while you can totally do naval gaming on a plain sea mat, I'm incapable of NOT doing scenery for any given project. The final version of that is here on the blog - www.warbard.ca/2020/01/21/coastline-complete/ - and will be joined by more coastal modules in due course. Building of those coastal bits was also documented on the blog, check the "related links" at the bottom of that post for links.
I don't actually have a 3d printer myself at present but my brother has a pair (Ender 5 and Ender 2, I think?) and I commission stuff from him for beer, which is a pretty good trade.
Welcome to the FMS forums! The modules look great, and your website is excellent. A few people on here are interested in naval games, including myself; I know Suntzu actually sells some files of interesting lesser-known naval conflicts over on The Wargames Vault if you want to check it out. I've been interested recently in the possibility of playing 1:1 ground scale (water scale?) naval games, or in using nautical maps as the game surface instead of terrain- this would be done with 1/2400 scale models most likely.
Having access to a 3D printer is great. I don't actually have one myself - in part because I more around a lot and it would be one more thing to carry from place to place. But I intend to be staying at my next place for awhile, so now might be the time to invest in a printer. I'd probably get a lot more model making in if I owned one. I'd definitely have a lot more buildings printed out- to me, nothing makes a table look better than several hundred (ideally thousands) of buildings.
Anyways, glad to see you here and looking forward to watching your projects develop. I'll also take a close look at your website later.
