    It really has.  I'm amazed at what I can get out of a $200 printer.  I have replaced parts and fiddled with it a lot, but that's printer life.

     

    It sure takes some skill to make the nice prints happen, no doubt.

     

    There was a guy doing Warmachine terrain with a 3d printer a few years back. His stuff always looked a bit rough in the finish to me.

  2. His base isn't like normal broccoli, its more flat. Like he's standing on a big flat thing. I usually go for a dungeon-y look to the bases. Perhaps a warmer stone grey could do the trick?

     

    I've got some army painter clumps, kinda like them.

     

    That makes a lot of sense. I have a bottle of really translucent army painter red somewhere, perfect for that! I mainly use my GW red, that covers really well.

  3. Rattlesnake lizardmen, scary! Give them some extra poison-rules.

    I got a little impatient trying to clean off the mold lines as I'm more used to working with metal and not the Bones material.  But most of what I didn't get is lost in the patterns.  

     

    Not caring about mold lines on bones is nice 8) I usually go that route myself, going "bleep this, no one is going to see it" sooner or later.

    I like the effect you got on the dragon-man armor.  It looks like iron.  I think you could improve him with a light touch of orange highlighting on his back scales and spine.

    I think the dragon man is actually pretty decent, it’s just lacking contrast between the armour and the skin. As Inarah said the iron looks good so personally I’d just give the skin another simple pass to brighten the red up. 

     

    If you wanted to go a step further then using a lighter base would also help that read as separate from the figure

     

    Highlighting red with orange is scary! Suddenly it is too much and look dull. But I agree, some orange is a good idea. I wonder how he would have looked painted like fire, white to red-black. I considered hitting the scales with some shiny sealer.

     

    Not sure what to do with the base. It's a fairly boring, flat broccoli. Perhaps stamp him on a happy-seppuku cobblestone and paint the stone lighter? Or paint the whole thing black. Or paint him a flat, light grey, base. Grass, perhaps, to contrast with the red?

     

    Thanks for kind word and feedback!

    Love the stone's sword and the dragonman's arnor. Nice job all around.

     

    Thank you! :blush: 

    I also thought "petrified adventurer" with that mini. She is apparantly a column, and I must have her in column-form in my bag o' bones.

     

    My players would expect something if I add a mini for a statue..

    Yep, it sure did.  New one is presently under construction on the same foundation.

    Wow, that is very burny indeed. Good to hear about the rebuilding. Strange thing, "Buglips house burnt down" was like the third thing I read on the forum when I got back. 

    Did you scrape off some coal and make a "burnt house brown" paint? :poke:
