That is awesome! I want one. But uh, I don't have a 3D printer. Sadness.

 

I need a beholder mini though. And Reaper's eyebeast just isn't imposing enough to stand in.

 

In any case, this looks great! And I'll bet at the table the stepping isn't noticeable at all. Do you intend to game with it, or is it for display only?

Turned out good. The principal of the local elementary just got one of those for the school and was interested in printiñ off minis for the kids. Are there any good sites I can direct him to?

Like you said, the stepping isn't really too awful unless you really look for it. I can see it a little on the teeth, but that's all.

Nice model, and cool paint job!

This is awesome! How does it stay up on that tiny support?

Hello and thank you for your kinds words all!

 

@sirgourls: I would use it in game if I had the chance. I don't really get to game much these days :( 

@tjrez, I can't publish links as that goes against Reapers' policy as they are also commercial sites, but you can PM me.

@Lorathorn: superglue. The support is a paperclip superglued underneath the base and comes through a hole that I drilled and under teh beholder it is bent in a 90 degree angle so the mini rests on a horisontal support a few millimetres before the paperclip is bent 90 degrees again to enter the hole I drilled for it in the beholder. if that makes any sense.

The beholder is hollow (the printer fills it with a wide honeycomb-structure inside for strength) and does not really weigh much. The PLA is quite light.

Wow looks nice and a nice sculpt. On top of this, I am impressed at the quality on a cheap printer.....this may push me to finally order a printer. I have been waffling on buying one for a couple years now.

What a miniature is made of & how it is produced isn't as important as what you do with it once you have it in hand. At least that is my take on the subject.

That is an IMPRESSIVE creation, AND BEAUTIFULLY painted...I love the tongue. VERY WELL DONE!

      One of the other players in my group had me paint these guys up, Woody Stumpwimple and Balto Burrowell. The other players always wanted really muted (y'know, edgelord/masculine) colors so kept them pretty simple. Have already painted up Balto twice now (once for myself, 2nd time for a different player) so might say no more commissions for Balto although he's fairly easy to paint at least.

      Rounding out my egyptian themed minis I painted up these two avatars of sokar that I have. They were fun but challenging with all the detail. The bases were really fun to do. I made little pieces of temple floor with cork board then put a thin layer of milliput over them and used these textured rollers from Green Stuff World that was an egyptian themed roller. I've used Basius prior for stamping stuff and was surprised how well the rollers turned out and will be getting more of them in different themes eventually for sure. Anyways, thanks for reading!

      Been painting up my egyptian themed minis. Rebased these guys on some temple looking bases from Dragon Forge that I painted to look more like sandstone. They were fun although the detail on their gold was challenging. Thanks for reading!

      Painted the duplicate of this guy a while ago and huz needed a 2nd one for an encounter we had so I painted him up pretty similarly. Nothing exciting, thanks for reading!

      These three pieces have been sitting around in a box for ages, I rediscovered them the other day and decided to just have at them. They really did not take more than a few minutes plus drying time each.

      The well was filled with a drop of blue and a drop of unshaken green (=blotchy and stripey as the pigments had seperated alittle) vallejo paint.
      Just one drop directly from the dropper bottles into the well each, a very gentle stir and leave to dry.
      A little touch up around the edges and hey presto! I am pretty chuffed with the result.
       
      The stone is done by black undercoat, dark green/grey over that, heavily drybrushed with sandy yellow and lighter drybrush with offwhite.
      Differently coloured glazes help differentiate it a bit where needed.
