Kemvar are the third of the starter factions I've painted for MERCS: Recon. They come in the Assassination Protocol starter.

Unlike the first 2 factions I painted where I just painted the 5 figures that come in the starter, for Kemvar I also dug out the Spy, Monkeywrench and Sniper, who were stretch goals in the Kickstarter.

As with the other factions, these guys are just tabletop, and the bases are kept simple for board game play.  If I ever get around to playing the full tabletop skirmish game I might go back and redo the bases....

 

Here's the pics.  (I'm still getting used to taking pics with the light arch and new backgrounds, these look a little bright....)

Hmm, should have looked at that when doing the assassin's blade...might need to redo that.....

Thanks!  I'm going to play around with taking pictures tonight, they seem washed out.

      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.

      Sat down for two hours today to make the time until bones 3 shipment notification go by.  Thought I'd try a speed paint of something largish.  Wasn't sure if this should have gone in the WIP thread.  Not putting it in show off though since it is far from what I would consider done.  Still, a fun test of my speed.
       
      2:39 pm about to rip open the bag.

       
      2:51 pm mold lines trimmed, washed, glued to a base.
       

       
      3:13 pm.  Brown linered.  Poured too much so a big puppy got some liner too.  Had to wait for drying anyway.
       

       
      3:47 pm.  Green hair, off white weapon and other accessories.  Eyes.
       

       
      4:08 pm. Skin.  Lots of skin.  
       

       
      4:28 pm.  Blue and purple/red cloth and accessories.  What, only 10 minutes left?  
       

       
      4:41 copper details.  Little leather.  Okay, technically a couple minutes over.  Would have liked to go for another 20-30 min but I had to run out.  
       

       

       
      mission accomplished?  Well, there base could use some attention.  And the face.  Really all of the skin could use a highlight. And the hair.  
       
      But I think I'll keep it as is for now to show what I am capable of in two hours.  Maybe try this again in a while (there is the male still to do) and see if I get any faster.

      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?

      I made more progress on my Zombicide Survivors.  Here is number 4: Amy.  I wasn't comfortable with painting up the fishnets from the artwork, so I went with lite pink.  Otherwise I went for close to art work.  As with my other models,  I went with no blood on the survivors.  Only problem is the blade couldn't be straightened perfectly, but she is for gaming, so good enough.
       
      Here is Amy:

       
      Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel like giving.
