Welcome to the Highlander Studios blog.

I won't promise any earth shattering revelations here. What I will be trying to do is post some new products as I release them, share some thoughts on gaming and show some pics of games and other stuff that I enjoy. So come in and make yourselves at home.

Victorian Street Furniture

     I've been practicing my digital skills a few hours each day by selecting a random item and working on it. Each one has taught me a some new or more efficient way of handling some of modeling with Rhino software.

     Over the weekend I modeled a Victorian street lamp.

     Today it was two versions of letter boxes.

     Until I get these into production in metal they will be available at Shapeways.They are available in 1/100 scale as well as 1/56 scale for 15mm and 28mm gaming.

     On Monday I received the quick test print of the steam launch.

     There are some design issues I need to adjust before the final master print and I may scale it up about 10%. But, all in all, I am thrilled to have a physical model in front of me. One step closer to the end goal of production.

     Work has stalled on the small bird while I figure out how I'd like to handle some design issues. But last week I was able to finish the digital work on the Aphid. I still need to revisit the guns and mounts, but the structure is done.
