The conclusion of a massive project is never easy nor is articulating the impact and joy it has on ones hobby. Here I share the highs and lows of a two month journey to create an epic gameday of Frostgrave with entirely new terrain and warbands.
Many do not realize that 3D printing is a hobby much like miniature painting. It requires time, study, determination and most importantly practice. Not all hobbyists are at the same skill set. Not all printers or materials have the same capabilities. With a large variety of programs and settings how does one approach the hobby?

So instead I am setting goals for 2021 i'm going to break into 3 categories: Painting, Printing and the Blog along with a final Other bucket. Below are the goals for 2021 in each category. This is definitely a list which will take time to focus on but I think it is absolutely accomplishable.
