Swampwood Huts submitted!

I've been spreading my time too thin, so updating on the progress of things takes a back seat. I'm still doing stuff! Today, I wrapped up the cutfiles for the Swampwood Hut TLX kitbash.

Not a very impressive picture, but I needed to snap something for the kitbash tumbnail. Here's an aerial shot:

Kinda fun. I left the the square huts open, for no particular reason. Maybe they're falling apart. The kitbash judges will surely find some suggestions to make, but until then, I'll start making progress on converting the cathedral!

Building the TLX Swampwood set

It's about time, right? I've battled some serious motivation issues, some scheduling issues, some technical issues, and the holidays. Oh, the holidays! But, the new year is in full swing, and I've muscled out some printed pages from my aging printer. I *will* get this TLX conversion completed. I will.

The TLX stuff actually builds pretty quickly, even if it's not exactly thrilling work. In one distracted evening, I've got enough walls and posts for one or two huts, and I've got the trusses and tiles started. Once I'm done, I'll be able to build a whole bunch of different sizes and shapes of huts, and it'll be easy peasy to add on to it!

But, here's what I'm planning. First, I'll get the hut tile made for this round hut. That, and a small and hallway tile for square huts. Then I'll get a couple standard TLX roof pieces made, and... FINALLY... I'll try making some of the different special roof pieces. Yay.

If nothing goes wrong, then it's only cutfiles that stand in my way of releasing this conversion and moving on to the next thing.
