Since it's arrival last month, I've been experimenting with my first 3D Printer. Today marked the first finished painted projects that were made on it.
Several Giants, designed by Duncan "Shadow" Louca.
The Gourdlock, by dutchmogul:
One of my favorite finds while randomly searching for STL files, the Dwarf Rock Star, also by dutchmogul.
Completing my Frostgrave Bestiaries is an eventual goal...here's a simple crab from Rocket Pig
Tortles seem to be the new hotness since their introduction in a charity event tied to "Tomb of Annihilation". These guys are a mix from Fat Dragon and the wonderful DM Workshop
The last are a murder of Redcaps, again designed by DM Workshop. I swapped out their weapons to give them some variety.
Figured I'd create a thread to show off the finished cars from my thread in the Sculpting sub forum.
Here's the Europa Magnus Hover Wagon:
Wasn't really sure how to do the glass area. I am happy with my color choices, but not sure about my highlighting.
Here's my delivery van:
I didn't even try to sand out the print layer lines, since these are supposed to be quick and dirty, yet practical pieces to practice painting techniques on.
Continuing on from my sculpting thread here, I've begun assembly and painting of my Rottweiler tank.
Started sanding and first coat of primer. Ran out of black primer, so stalled myself out.
I'm thinking this might be a practice piece for a ReaperCon entry of the same tank.
It has been a really busy year for me, between moving across the country, starting a new job, finding a place to live, getting married, major surgery for the missus, and evacuating/rebuilding after a major hurricane. Unfortunately, this has left little time for painting- and it’s been driving me nuts!
After the wedding a few weeks back, we finally had some time to take a step back and breathe. The wife poked me and said “why don’t you start painting again?”
The first thing I picked up was this squad of half-finished Ritterlich Republic cougars I had been working on last winter before the move. They had been painted and inked, but not assembled, highlighted or jeweled.
I’ve been working on them a few hours at a time over the past few weeks, and finally had a big chunk of the day yesterday where I could sit down and power through them… here they are! I still need to do the bases, but I couldn’t do that last night as the glue was still drying. They will also get a matte varnish coat, but I'd like to get your C&C on a few things before then.
As I have mentioned before, this is from the CAV kickstarter; one of the things I wanted to do with the kickstarter CAVs was to explore a different painting technique for each army. For the Ritter, this was edging.
As time went on, I started to become a bit fatigued at the sheer amount of edging required. This caused me to slowly rotate from display quality (for me at least) to more tabletop quality. But hey, a painted mini is always better than an unpainted one, and easing up a bit on the quality allowed me to finish them quickly.
I am also trying to incorporate more blending in the canopies, as well as some OSL effects. As you can see, I am still practicing. I expect I will get better with time (at least I hope I do)!
As always, C & C are very welcome. I am trying to get better and I can’t do that without critique. Any comments about how to improve the jeweling or OSL in particular would be most appreciated.
If anyone wants the paints or techniques used, I can provide that information too.
