    Depends on the printer and the material used.

    The 3D Dino I was talking about didn't need sanding, only sealer.

    It is a high quality print well detailed, only thing is that it is hollow and therefore brittle.

    Since I paint for display it suits me, but for wargaming it won't be sturdy enough.

    Still, great quality.


    Here is the Dino ( The riders are metal minis,)




    That is a good looking Dino.

    To be fair, I would surmise you haven't been impressed with FDM 3D printing. Resin based printers are frequently used to produce miniatures. Different technologies for different applications. Folks who use FDM printers to produce miniatures are frequently left with sub-par results. Though there are rare exceptions to the rule when using very fine nozzle sizes, or specific printer settings to yield better results. Recent developments in the technology have lowered the barrier to entry to resin printers significantly, to the point where individual sculptors can afford an AnyCubic Photon/Maker Select/Wanhao to produce very acceptable prototypes. The biggest cons are the relatively small build chamber, mess and fumes, and significantly increased cost of materials when compared to FDM.


    You are right about that. I always give a KS or a seller in general a look over.

    There's no true Protoss equivalent, and the Zerg replacements are...  I dunno.  They're missing Hydralisks and Mutalisks.  Y'know, the friendly "I so want one as a pet" cute ones. ::P:


    Well said! Ya i would imagine the eldar are the closes to the Protoss. It would be really nice to have 28mm scale protoss figures.

    Beautiful. Great blues. Wonderful sparrow. And the touch of having smoke come out from the pipe!

    THANKS Iridil! The pipe was a last minute addition. I saw it on a WarHammer 40k figure and thought that would put it over the top! :) Glad you like it.

    I like so much the blues! Very nice!

    Thank you Cicciopiu. That is about 4 or five different shades of blue too. I really wanted to push the effect of his blue.

    Beautiful blues!

    Ty Warlady, It's really the deepest blues that sell the effect.

    Awesome! Great color choices. All of him looks great but I really I love how the details on the puffy sleeves really pop. 


    Thanks! I really had to mull over it for a while until I decided on a color I liked.

    Awesome!  Very smooth work.  Great nmm.  Love the little freehand accents.

    :) :) THANKS! I'm really trying to push NMM and get it down!

    Beautifully done and very colorful!

    Exactly what I was going for. I usually do some in the not so bright range but I'm trying to break out of those comfort zones.

    Yeah, he turned out nicely! I love the color choice for the skin!

    Thanks, honestly the hardest part to choose. I was originally going to go with green.

    Thank you so much Glitter.

    Really love the gold NMM! 

    Appreciated. I used it on a piece I'm still working on and it worked well there so I tried it here. I use a neon orange and deep brown for the transitions. Although I feel it like the lightly patterns off a bit, but it doesnt look horrible. Progress not perfection, right? :)

    Beautiful and vibrant - such clean painting and freehand! I like that you chose a colorful look for him!

    Thank you Iridil. The free hand took a few tries. I was going to go with scales but could not manage to freehand paint one that I liked so I did a diamond instead. He's a fancy fellow so diamond is more apt I think. :)

    Very cool scene!  Awesome work!

    Thank you Nerco! I was eyeballing the blank MDF base for like a week before I decided what to do. You can see some of the WIP on it on my IronBristleStudios webpage.

    Stunning diorama, now tell those two to put their swords up and take a dip in the inviting water to cool down.  They're just too intense. ::D:

    Great work on all aspects.

    HAHAH, yeah Sith happens and they tend to get all mad about it. LOL. Thanks.

    I agree with CitizenCane, do it!  It's included in the dropship one which is a limited time offer bundle!  Thingy! 


    ... Of doom! 


    As much as I would love to I really can't afford it. :( And I don't have anyone to place with at the moment. My group will only play Battletech. I tried to get them to play CAV with the first KS. :(

    Much storage, many envy. 


    Or.. I wish I had that much storage for stuff!  I'll get there eventually though, as I'm seriously considering a few different options... 


    HobbyZone, Back2Base-ix, 


    Those are the two major ones I was looking at when I started the process.





    Before I set up my whole desk space I was looking for Roll top desks. It was very difficult to find one I liked and when I did it was SUPER expensive. SO much so I had to scrap the idea completely.

  10. I found a table and legs at ikea that is great for such builds. I am still using the table. The work space it provides is more than enough. I wanted enough room on my table to support my racks and have elbow room AND have room to lay stuff out and leave it... Trying to accommodate for the "crafting halo", when your working and your put stuff all around you. I found that the 61inch by 29.5 inch work table was more than enough for that. I would highly recommend it.



    • GERTON - Tabletop, beech
    • ADILS - Leg, black

    Then I went with HobbyZone Crafting racks. This was the most expensive parts.
