Golem Print Arrived Today!

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

i just thought i'd post this up as i was excited to see it arrive in the post today: Mr Stitches the Golem and Cat the Cat at a total of 50mm

It's exactly as it arrived out of the box from Shapeways (in the extreme detail material)and cost a total of, i think $35 inc. shipping. I haven't cleaned it or anything and i realise that it's not the easiest to see but i just wanted to pop it up here anyway!

Looks really nice. You should post another picture after a base coat is on it. ::):

For a $30 print that looks pretty good! The extreme detail prints from Shapeways seem like they are a great option for pieces that you can have as samples to show off without having to pay 4x as much for a higher resolution "professional" print. It definitely helps that it was a great looking sculpt to begin with! I may have to pick one up if I see it for sale somewhere in the future...

      I finally finished it!

      Just got back my Chaos Marauder sculpt from Shapeways. 

      The primer is showing the print lines that were hidden when it was frosted. To be honest though, i can't really see that much wrong with it with my eyes, only when zoomed in.

      I've included the original sculpt  for comparison

      Hello all!

      I'm really trying to learn about sculpting for miniatures and here's my current project:

      It's a Golem from artist Chris Walton
       
      It's just at the Armature phase right now but i've started to block in my major shape masses. I'll post that when i get a bit further.

      Any help/suggestions/direction on how to make this more viable for print at around 30mm would be most appreciated!

      All the best, 
      Andrew Cothill

      Hey all, DMAgamus here. It was the extra spoopy time of year again, and I always put on a special game to celebrate. WHat better thing to pain, then, than pieces from the graveyard expansion of bones 3. I present to you, the crypt at the edge of the wilds! The Halloweenies! ANd their minion, Pete the Grave Golem! Also, I've added on pics of the full board, for fun. It was a great time had by all.

      YAY!  Clearance items begotten from Game Kastle and I managed to find not one but TWO of the minis from my wishlist in their clearance!!  WOOOHOOO!
       
      HERALD OF BLOOD
      This golem or construct of the gnomes from deep within the world is brilliantly painted by Martin Jones in the Reaper Catalog:
       

      Painted by Martin Jones
       
      And while I didn't want his work to influence mine I will be doing at least two things the same:
       
      A.
      Glowing Runes and Eyes
       
      B.
      Not Stone Spikes
       
      I assembled this gentleman first with the idea of "full menacing pose" so both arms are over his head.
       
      And amusingly, without referencing the above image, I swapped his arms.
       
      So to start off, here he is Primed, Basecoated in Vallejo Game Color Yellow Olive and the Runes are in Vallejo Panzer Aces Stencil.
       

       
      GOAL!!!!
      On the base, is a piece of slate and green stuff to simulate cavern floor.  Two fallen or unused mine supports are behind him.
       
      What's next ... well, I think the final colors are going to be Purple / Black Granite with a Green under-color.
      The Runes will be a glowing Reaper Rach Red .
       
      The Spikes will be converted into Crystals.  Which might entail some blunting of the ends to get a more crystalline appearance. 
      These crystals will ultimately be Red/Purple or Purple/Green to fit the theme so far.
       
      ENJOY and Stay Tuned!
