  1. It has them turned for you? I have so many weird issues with the images I take LOL
  2. Thanks! I'm actually really surprised that I got through it so quick! To be completely honest, though, I DID take Monday off for my birthday and worked on it for like 5 hours LOL Such a fun model to paint!
  3. Just finished this guy up tonight! Got the base from Dragon Forge today and had to wrap it up. This mini is scaled to 22" at 100%, but that seemed a bit too large for the space I currently have for displaying stuff, so I lowered the scale down to 70% when I printed, so he's only 14" tall now. There were a couple of breakages (some of the pieces have thin contact points) and the central piece of the body had a printing error where it flattened out some. But, I'd probably have to point it out to people for them to see it because it sort of blends in well to how he's contorting his body. The feat
  4. Wrapped this up today! I keep saying I'm going to get my Bones painting caught up for when my Bones V stuff gets here, now I have a bunch of 3D printed stuff i somehow managed to work into the queue.... Not sure how that happened... But, aside from print errors (was the second thing I printed, so there are a few of them unfortunately) I think they turned out pretty well! http://www.bojesphob.com/Army/printed/Mando1.jpg http://www.bojesphob.com/Army/printed/Mando2.jpg
  5. so, yellow work? http://www.bojesphob.com/Army/printed/AnubisWIP3.jpg
  6. Been printing up a storm LOL Have a couple that turned out FANTASTIC and figured I'd post them here so you all can see them before I start painting them. First is the Clay Cyanide Jormungandr: http://www.bojesphob.com/Army/printed/jorg.jpg You'll notice I have Dance of Death in progress in the background, which also gives some scale to Jorg. Also have the water of the base painted up as well. There are some pieces for an ice giant sitting around it as well, but have a few piece to print for that before it's ready to show off. And, my favorite print recently. the Cold
  7. So maybe do a gold with black irises? That might be interestin
  8. Maybe. It almost looks like the eyes are black in all of the artwork of Anubis that I can find (that's where I got the color scheme, for the most part). Maybe just do white with black irises?
  9. I am close to being done with the Anubis I printed. Definitely loving the new printer I bought! There were a few printing issues with this piece, but since I didn't want to waste a lot of resin after the fact, I just dealt with the broken pieces/misprints as they were. I'm doing FAR better with the prints now that I know the finer points of where to place the models in the slicer programs and how to add the supports, so it was definitely a learning experience! That said, I bet if I don't point out the printing issues or where I trimmed pieces in the wrong places not realizing that I cut the wr
  10. Learned some new stuff over the weekend.... Mainly that sometimes there aren't enough supports on some of the pieces even if you do the "auto" function in the slicing software. This, in turn, caused one of the legs of the Mandalorian to partially drop off of the base and damage the FEP film. So, new ones ordered... Anyhow, I got quite a bit printed, and am learning a lot about it as I go along. I am THOROUGHLY impressed with the quality of prints this Anycubic Photon mono makes!! Just need to figure out a good place for it and the wash/cure stand as where they're at now isn't going to work lon
  11. doesn't bother me too much. I only got the clear for things like water bases or effects on minis, so they'll be getting a wash and then a drybrush on top even if they stay clear. Mando will be fully painted, so you won't even notice when I'm all done :)
  12. Finally got the settings right, and got the Mandolorian printed from a free STL. Have a few other things printing right now (using some advice from Glitterwolf :) ) and he turned out pretty good! I'm pretty sure the yellowing is from him sitting in the printer overnight, and I didn't cure him until this morning, but not really worried about it with him as I will be painting him and not keeping him clear. The Child is printing right now along with some pirate stuff, so once I get those cleaned and cured, I'll post some pics of those too. I did end up snapping Mando's legs off when I was trimmin
  13. Third attempt worked! Once I get back from dropping a certain someone off at kindergarten I'll be able to scrape it off, clean it, cure it, and get some pics.
  14. Well, first print attempt failed miserably. But, after reading the bottle for the clear resin, I don't think I had the exposure set properly. I have it rerunning now to see it will work. Set up was exceptionally easy, and hopefully after adjusting the layer cure time will get the second attempt to print properly. Will post when I get a good print!!
  15. Printer and wash station just arrived... If I wasn't so backed up with some production issues at work, I would SOO be setting it up right now! LOL
  16. I figured i would wait on them. I want to make sure I get the process down before I start any large miniatures. Jorgmundir will be the first one I try for the larger ones, but even that one will wait as well even though I have the STL for it already. What I did was get the Pirate stuff that you had posted in the thread about the pirate ship from Bones V (can't have too many tables, treasure, pirate cages, etc LOL), the cannon ball monkey from the same company, the God King Anubis from Archvillian Games, the really cool dragon skull from the Dragon Trappers Lodge (will show it below, that one i
  17. I would have, had I known I was even going to entertain getting one. Up until I sold those football cards, it was going to be a "maybe in 12 months" type of thing since it wouldn't fit into my current budget. Once I knew how much I was bringing in, I knew I needed the tools and headlights, and I thought I COULD use the rest of the money to pay off some debt, but that's all I've been doing for a while now with most of my extra money and wanted to do something fun part of it. I still have a few hundred extra to throw towards debt, so it's not like I'm being completely irresponsible LOL Once I ge
  18. Great! Mine are in route to me and will be here tomorrow. I even bought about 30+ bucks worth of STLs to start with
  19. Well. gotta start somewhere LOL Yeah, I'll probably end up getting more. As to what to design, I have actually been working on sculpting some tokens to print that are for the Marvel United game from CMON. The cardboard ones just don't seem like they will be super durable. I have the first one figured out for the main token, but have to put the design on the top and bottom for it, and that will be the challenging part. Of course, I'm using AutoCAD for it, since making proper angles for corners doesn't seem to be super easy in Blender and Mudbox.
  20. Thanks for the tips!! Been doing a bunch of research before I finalized the purchase, and I feel pretty confident in my choice, and I am looking forward to a new challenge :) Not like work, taking classes for another degree, raising a 5 year old, working on house projects, and still trying to paint everything wasn't enough challenge, right?
  21. I personally try not to go directly to China. I know there's not much that you can get that doesn't touch their production facilities in some way shape or form, but at least going with Amazon I could get mine and pay someone at the Amazon shipping centers instead of someone in China. That and I only have to wait until Thursday to get mine LOL My wife has Prime, so just ordered through her account.
  22. You'll have to let me know how the Mars 2 Pro is. I thought about getting that one, but Amazon and other US sellers didn't have it in stock. I've never owned a 3D printer, and from what I've read the Anycubic is nearly as good as Elegoo (with some minor cons in comparison to it) and I don't know enough about it to really care about marginal increases in speed or resolution... anything will be better than what I have right now LOL I also liked that the tray for the Mono can be used to wash and cure in their wash station.
  23. Yeah, the values of cards depends on the player and the rarity. A lot of the stuff I sold was very low numbered and hard to come by, and Adams is a high profile player this year (with the records he broke for the team). Still, I can't believe it sold for so much, so I'm still in shock. Turned out to be a perfect storm of timing for it: COVID stimulus, Adams doing fantastic, Packers getting first seed in the playoffs, the COVID price surge, and people getting money for the holidays. Heck, I even accepted a promo for selling when listing them without paying attention to what it was, and it limit
  24. I've thought about getting a resin 3D printer for a while, but finances the way that they were it just wasn't something I wanted to spend money on. Here before Christmas, though, I decided I was going to list some football cards I thought I would get decent money for on eBay and see if I couldn't free up some spending money that didn't affect my budget. They were Davante Adams rookie year cards (Packers WR) and were in a set that has a high demand. Since COVID hit, the sports card market has skyrocketed, and I figured I'd be able to hopefully get about 1000 bucks for the 22 cards that I had, w
  25. I've heard you could sell Ed on eBay for a decent price, and it would be worth the extra shipping. Might even pay for the rest of your pledge
