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?

Nice job!  And regardless of stepping, hound of a great job painting the big eye.  It looks great!

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!

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!

      The following images depict a miniature of a female sylph or fairy in natura. I am not sure if these would be in conflict with the posting guidelines or not. Better safe than sorry.

      Clear minis are best painted by undercoating with a matte clear varnish and then transparent paints such as inks.
      This mini has wings in vallejo pale grey wash before citadel carroburg crimson wet blended on drucii violet. Body in thinned old citadel turquoise glaze, hair and panties in army painter green ink. The eyes are the only bits painted with normal opaque paint.
       
      As this mini does not seem to be released as of yet,  I do not know who sculpted it or what it's code or official name is.

      I'm not entirely sure what this is supposed to be; I got it in a group of figures that I bought on Ebay. I know it's by Grenadier, and that's it.
      I painted this up as part of my Morihalda challenge; to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard.
      Those eyes were tons of fun.

      I forget exactly what this figure is called, but it's another old Mage Knight figure that I have repainted. I think it would work well as a (small) evil treant. I'd have to go through the Monster Manual, but I'm sure that there are other plant monsters this would work as, too.
       
      Tabletop paint job as usual.
       

       

       

       
      ETA---Forgot to mention, this is part of my Morihalda challenge (do art every day in December).

      Bombshell Miniatures 10050 Celeste the Sorceress, sculpted by Kev White.
       
      I wanted a simple mini with few accessories to paint up as a quick little project, so I picked Celeste for her clean lines.  As a bonus I used some of the Breastcancer Awareness Pink I have multiple bottles of.
      Spent maybe 3 hours on her.
