80040: Bathalian Primarch

9 posts in this topic

Here is my completed Bathalian Primarch. I started going more of a dual color approach at first, but didn't like where it was going. So I pretty much just ripped off Canuckotter's excellent bathalian (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69926-80040-bathalian-primarch/). Not much to be said. I'm happy with the way it turned out, but nothing amazing. Thanks for reading!

It's definitely got a good alien vibe going. Well done.

Great work.  I've never noticed that the back side of the figure is an exposed brain...

      And they* said 3D printing poses no threat to traditional miniatures...
      well maybe not yet, but still:
        

       
      There are a few more pics at my blog.
       
      This is a 3Dprint I printed out myself on my cheapo Flashforge Finder. Printed in PLA with .01 layer height. I scaled it a bit randomly to make a large one.
      The original model is by Axolote Gaming, an unexpected bonus item from their second Kickstarter, and also one of the better models of a Beholder I have seen yet.
      You can see the stepping from the printing process if you look closely. This is particularily obvious in the teeth and the eyeball as.the gloss varnish I used on the eye really made the stepping apparent. It was not half as bad before.
      At any rate, the stepping is really only apparent when looked at closely, or when magnified such as in the pictures. The fangs are a bit misshapen here and there, mostly from my printer not being all that great. I have not used a file when prepping, just clippers and a sharp hobby knife. Maybe a file would have straightened those teeth out properly. Something to try next time.
      The tentacles are hollow as their cross sections are to small to include any infill. This means they are quite brittle and prone to snappin off. Luckily only one of them broke during the removal of the supports though.
      My printer also left a lot of extremely fine hair-like strings attached to the finished print, so together with removing the print-supports there was quite a lot of prepwork.
      At least I did not have to wash it to get rid of the mould's release agents, as I have realized the truth: there is no mould.
       
      A note about painting 3D models: Neither drybrushing nor washes are good techniques for them, as the stepping will get accented and more pronounced. (and here I am with drybrushing and washes as my favorite techniques... argh!)
       
      I used a 50mm lipped base with a paperclip to make the stand.

      I finished this guy up on Friday; he's an old Ral Partha thief (if i remember correctly, he came in a 2 or 3 piece blister pack with some of his fellows; I'm pretty sure I've got them around here somewhere).
       
      My usual tabletop paintjob; I hope you like him.
       

       
       

       
      I'm still experimenting with my pictures; which version looks better?

      Here is the mighty Shrew-zerker, from the Burrows and Badgers line (and game) from Oathsworn.
       

       
      Sorry about the shininess, as he's a for play piece so I gloss coated him, and its been too humid or damp to dull coat him for the last couple of weeks.  I'll update with some new pics whenever I get a chance to spray him.
      He's a great little fig (Oathsworn's anthropomorphic figs are scaled like the actual animals are, so shrews are pretty tiny, around 20mm) and was fun and quick to paint.  He's been done for a while but my basing stuff was all away from moving to a new painting space.  I finally found some and put a quick and simple base on him. Hopefully as I get more used to basing with flock again (its been....a while) my bases will improve for future B&B figs.
       
      Update!
      Dull coated and with improved photography....

      Next we have the Shrew Warrior.
       

       
      Again, sorry about the shininess.  I'll post new pics once the weather cooperates for dull coating.
      Another fun little guy, full of character.
       
      Update!
      It actually stopped raining long enough to spray some dull coat.  I've also been messing around with my phone and background to get less washed out pics.

      So, It's May the First, Time for a new Hangout Mini!
      Continuing in our theme of Building a Frostgrave Warband,
      This Month, our mini is Blacktongue, Gnoll Ranger, 03190 in metal, 77104 in bones.
       
      Now I have 20+ of the Old Ral Partha Gnolls in 25mm, so this guy, being much bigger than them, will be a Flind from Fiend  Folio...
      On the other hand, I painted the first of my Partha Gnolls using Ral Partha Mane Yellow, so this guy needs to be different....
      Going back to MMI, Gnolls have a Green Grey Fur, so I decided that I would use SC75 Field Grey 38 50% with SC75 SS Camo Shade, mixed with some Nacre mixed 50% with the aforementioned mix as my base coat, as I now tend to paint 'Dark to Light'....
      So here he is with the first basecoat...

      Even though I am doing the metal version, the way his left arm fit into the ball and socket at the elbow, looked best in more the bones pose than the metal.....
       
      So Thanks for looking!
