  1. I run at least 1 (usually WbG) at ReaperCon. I started it a few years ago the first year when we were at HGI & I've done it ever since. The vibe of the adventure fits the attitude of ReaperCon.
  2. I read that as the base was translucent, but if it's the entire mini, eh. I'm leaning towards not adding that one in due to that.
  3. Anymore, my minis consist of just a primer coat & then a wash. About all I have time for with my weekly game. Depending,on the mini, I may put a base coat if I can spray paint it (like lots of flesh or plate armor, etc, etc).
  4. Picked up few more files this morning. One due to I had code from a Patreon I'm in: Rakshasa (Rocket Pig Games) (note the hands aren't backwards, apparently this is WOTC trademark......) Love Dark Realms offerings! He really has allot of Eberron "Inspired" pieces. The male with the banner will be the leader of the warforged band, my Monday night PCs will encounter. Elise - Wizard's Apprentice (RN Estudio) Also, my wife & I went to probably my favorite restaurant in town tonight for dinner. It was nice to actually eat there (vs takeout). Spaced off, also finally got a package of 25mm plastic bases (around 100) off ebay. Took forever to get here thou. I ordered like around 23rd last month & yes it was a US seller........
  5. Fly, Dwayne Johnson, fly!! Awesome diorama! Love the flying effects you did for the copter.
  6. I totally forgot about that KS. Hmmm, I may have some minis to paint next week!
  7. Yup, Gadgetman mentioned this last month or May. Good stuff so far.
  8. While it really doesn't help you, my flgs has a singles option for dice buying. Anything like that up in your neighborhood?
  9. Funny, what happens when you forget about files & go snooping through file names. I backed one of Evan Caruth's 3d file KS awhile back (the Egyptian/desert one) & there was a rug of smothering in there, a personal suggestion I might add. While my first print on the printer was a animated rug, I liked the EC3D one (plus again, he added it to the KS after my comment of having something like that) so it's printing right now. Anther 7+ hr print, no worries. I've noticed the large figure files are around 8 hrs so but I'm a little surprised it's got a long time due to well it's a upright rug. ha ha.
  10. Suppose to get close to 100 on Saturday this week, currently thou is amazing weather! Like in the 80s, a little bit of breeze, no humidity (thou that is never a factor here). Just nice & it's been like this most of the week, so that 100 is gonna be a shock. At least it doesn't last as it suppose to drop back down in the 80s on Sunday. For those with a 3d printer or access to one: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3328612
  11. Apparently, you can download a version of Z Brush for free!!! While I'm never gonna be like Jason Wiebe, Bobby Jackson or Christine Van Patten, it would be nice to at least understand the program & maybe churn out something that nobody makes (like a Living Burning Hands spell for example).
  12. That is a Al-Mi'raj. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Mi'raj This is the file I printed it from: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3791464 Nice to see the Bones IMEF troopers found a home so soon. I've got em in metal so they've just been sitting in the original Vampire Box from Bones 1. Great selections overall.
  13. Yah, I really like that sculptor's work. I joined his Patreon last month but due to personal reasons, he gonna have to shut it down, so he's giving current members a free month for August & then who knows if it'll continue. Btw, Bulck has 3 options, the axe, dual tiger claws or single tiger claw. For my purposes, he'll be a badass gnoll the PCs have to encounter in a couple weeks. He's part of a bounty hunter group that assualts the town they are staying in. Technically, he is suppose to be a she. I gender swapped him with the ogre as I found a killer female ogre (which I got as well, I just forgot to put it up) (I'm not sure which one she'll be, now. ha ha)
  14. Totally forgot to post! I preordered this back when the Australia fires were still going from PopCultcha & it arrived earlier this week. I also purchase some digital figure files off myminifactory. Mainly for my weekly AL game: Venus (Artisan Guild) The Disciple of Puppets (TigerSkullRPG) (awesome helmed horror proxy!!!) Bulck Grassbreath (Fabioschizzo Miniatures)
  15. So I joined anther Patreon today, Epics 'N' Stuffs Miniatures. They made the ogre zombie. I kinda wish I would have looked at the patreon page before purchasing, ha ha (ogre Z is part of their welcome pack). The reason why I joined was simply the amount of products you got for becoming a member. Like 2 months worth of offerings (& those offerings are like at least 10 minis each) + some TMNT inspired figures. I backed a Patreon recently cause I love the sculptors style (his warforged are some of my favorite figures) but he is taking a break next month so who knows if he'll return or not. I love this figure. I was going to purchase it today, but she is part of this month's offering:
  16. Facebook mainly & even then I don't post that much anymore (you can thank the pros & cons of today's political/social environments for that). Randy Mendoza on Facebook if you'd like to add me as a friend. I'm on Discord, but I have no idea what user I'm on it. I joined earlier this year to keep up with my FLGS & such. I'll find out soon thou, as I'm planning a game for RCon this year!! Other then that I'm not much into social media.
  17. Why I said 2 steps. You're still dealing with supports still being attached to your project. Nice work on the curing oven. My daughter found what I believe is a ceramic "cover" of sorts for a Kleenex box or possibly for a small plant. Whatever it is, it works for me. I will admit, the undead ogre is testing the heights in it thou. I have a turntable like the one you have in yours in it. (btw does your spin without batteries? Mine doesn't, even thou it suppose to have solar panels) Speaking of the ogre zombie!! I didn't take a nap after coming home from work this morning, shockingly only 40 mins of OT yesterday. I fell asleep around 1030 pm or so but woke up like at 1130. So I came downstairs & it was done! Supports were a pain to get off, as they were really stuck to the base (one of those I'm gonna have to sand the hell out of it, to smooth it flat). Denatured alcohol seems to work pretty good. My can was so old that the plastic around the nozzle/cap crumbled after I popped it open & tried to close it. So I poured what I could into my tub before taking the can outside for trash. The mini felt clean after letting it float in the DA vs the Mean Green cleaner. So in it went into the box for curing. I tried a different setting & I don't know if it's the size but details are allot better then before. I'm gonna try in the morning, a human size figure & see. I will add to the gloves & mask, my left eye was red & itchy & I read that there are gases inside the chamber when you open the lid (or take off the cover, depending on brand) so I've started to wear googles I got at Harbor Freight. I don't know if that was it, but my eye isn't red or itchy anymore. To add to my curing box, my UV source is a light I got off River Site. Just type up UV lamp & look for the pics of lamp shining on objects like dentures. Is your bed level? That could be your problem.
  18. My one concern with this system is the curing. You can attach the plate directly to this & let it wash & cure, all in one step (or 2) but that means the supports will be harder to remove afterwards. I don't see that being a helpful step. Probably too late but Elegoo has one for around 50 bucks on the big winding river site. It's more or less a can with UV lights in it. For now I'll take the planter box with tinfoil on the inside with a cardboard flap my daughter made me for Father's Day this year.
  19. Hey! Hey! I actually have a can of Denatured Alcohol! I thought I did, as I recall using some in my airbrushing, many years ago. I may have to try it out on the ogre zombie, that is printing right now. I've got about 4 or 5 hrs left in the job for it.
  20. Yah, this one is definitely my answer. It's funny, my trip to LV this past Jan, seems like it was taken in a different era right now.
  21. I may have to try that. I did find something like 4 lt of IPA for like 44 US dollars. It'd have to be shipped but at least it was free shipping. Ok. undead ogre new size is around 50mm. It's gonna take a little over 10 hrs to print out. Sucker is even hollowed!! Oh I was the same way, but I never committed to buying the equipment. It wasn't until talking with Rastl at ReaperCon over the years where I decided, "hmmmm, maybe I try it." I knew I wasn't going to get a Prusa due to the price but when I saw the Ender 3 at 180, I knew I had have it. Granted, after my blob of death incident, I haven't done anything with the Ender 3. The dust on it, it gonna require it's own step when I re-assemble it this weekend! (finally vacation, well if I actually get it, we shall see). I've bought upgrades for it but I'll attach them a item at a time, just so I don't screw something up & I have no idea what I did. Well. avoided a disaster. I started up the print & it was close to halfway before I noticed, no build plate was attached!!!! Stop! & attached the plate...
  22. You'd be surprised on how many 3d printers are out there cause the person that bought them couldn't figure them out enough to get it going. I think allot of people think 3d printers are gonna work like a regular printer, ie plug & play. So I'm out of IPA. I've been using Mean Green cleaner for post clean up but I'm not sure I like it as much. It's great for cleaning off the build plate. I do have 2 types of MG. One is green & the other is purple (the purple one is what I've been using for the plate cleaning). I did use that one for post clean up so we shall see. I have been using the green one, maybe different formulas, who knows. Gonna re-size my undead ogre. I just need to find a good size for him. I think what I'll do is go grab one of the Bobby Jackson Reaper ogres, measure the height & then use that for this one. I like those 3 ogres & they generally are my go to ogres. Top of this guy's head right now is 60mm
  23. Nice work! Points for the squirrel too!!
