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!

      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.
       
          
       
      77136 Well of Chaos
       


      77139 Altar of Evil
       
       

       
      77137 Sarcophagus
       
       
      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.

      The scenery from The Bones 3: Mythos Expansion
       
         
       
      77525 Great Obelisk.
      I have tried to vary the tones on the greys used here, on the obelisk itself and not just the cephalopod on top. It really does not show up too well in the pictures.
       
          
       
      77523 Cthulhu Shrine
      A statue that causes sanity loss. As above, I trued to vary the tones,mostly with different coloured glazes. And they do not really show up in the pictures here either.
       
       
       

      This does not seem to have a code nor a name (yet). It is also from the Bones 3 Mythos Expansion.
      I will call it the Cultists Altar.

      Here we have a collection of treasure markers made by various manufacturers ( I'm pretty sure the boots are Reaper, and I know the bags are ) that I've done up for Frostgrave.
