  1. Design Great Grimoire Base Design CastnPlay. Printed on my Elegoo Mars ( basic but still going strong!) This is the first Zombie Deckhand for my Vampire Coast Army WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/97971-vampire-coast-army-and-other-pirates/page/2/#comments
  2. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dragonworkshop/gothic-taverns Chris Hunt has just launched his modular Gothic Tavern. This thing is extremely customizable, from a small way-stop to a sprawling Inn. His Shipworks Kickstarter delivered well and he has been very active with his Patreon the past few years. Most of the building add-ons for this project were recent Patreon rewards. He is great with communicating with the community on his Discord channel. This would be a great place for all of the tavern bits from the Green Griffon Tavern set to hang out. Unfortunately, I'm not great at adding the media bits to the Kickstarter announcements. Please check this one out.
  3. These are from a 3d printable Rocks and Plants crowdfunder I backed last year. The company is called Print Your Monsters, and I've been very pleased with how they come out. The base of each flower is ~30mm.
  4. Awhile back I posted part of the LOOT tavern. Here is part 2, which required me to use a slightly larger paint selection. Since my camera didn't want to play nice we have "blurry, but color accurate," and "in-focus but it doesn't quite look like that." Either way, tabletop ready.
  5. As mentioned elsewhere I got a copy of Rangers of Shadowdeep for Christmas, but due to the fact that I've almost always gamed at other people's houses, I lack terrain. Enter LOOT's welcome pack, which is a tavern. The default scale is 32mm. I could have scaled it to 88% and made it 28mm, but I just printed as is. Below you can see how it looks on a D&L grid (30mm), but it won't really matter at all off grid. And part 1 of the painting, just the wood! The wood grain on some of these is quite shallow so I used a glaze painting method like @AntiMatter wrote about. It did fill in the wood grain, but in order to really make it pop I would need to go back and highlight every board, which I'm not doing. Instead they just got some exterior edge highlighting, which I may yet blend in a bit with an ink wash later. My "nice" pics were overexposed, so I just waited for some natural light on the work table and took a new one.
  6. Here's a collection of spooky terrain I painted over October. All of them are from the Shadowfey set from Printable Scenery and printed on an Ender-3.
  7. Printed this out a while ago and made a base for her with the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Roller and a twig. The primer came out a bit chalky will try to remedy that. But for now I've basecoated her boots. Leather can be a bit rough so it's alright.
  8. Design by EPIC Miniatures. Printed it on my Elegoo Mars. Part of the Stygian Faction in my Desert Themed Project. WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79372-shifting-sands-glitterwolf-paints-egyptian-undead/ The expedition had ventured far into the Desert, eager to search for new specimens they had travelled farther than expected. But what a great journey it had been. The wagons were filled with animals they had found, some still alive in small cages, most preserved in bottles with alcohol. Dr. Elisa Hartmann was thrilled, she was certain her colleagues at the University of Mosul would be envious of her findings. Several unknown species of scorpions, lizards and birds and even a rare tortoise. Suddenly Ahmed shouted : SNAKE! Excited Dr. Hartmann ran to Ahmed, maybe it was a rare serpent? She hoped so! Ahmed came running towards her, TURN BACK! He shouted. A bit confused Elisa stood still, Ahmed ran past her. Surely Ahmed wasn't afraid of some snake? And then she saw it. It was bigger than a man and when it came closer she noticed the human torso with four arms. Hypnotized by the image she stood there. *********************** The University of Mosul would never receive the specimens. Dr. Elisa Hartmann was reported missing.

  10. Here comes another one from EC3D, aimed for easy to print, supportless, hordes of lower CR traditional monsters and encounters: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ecaroth/beast-and-baddies-3d-printable-tabletop-models?ref=user_menu Welcome to "Beasts and Baddies" from EC3D, your one-stop shop for the fastest, easiest to print, and highly-reusable tabletop fantasy mini STLS! This campaign was designed with a few goals in mind: #1 - Give DMs and gamers a beautiful set of minis to cover the bases for MANY common beasts and baddies they might encounter across most games (particularly low-to-medium level ones) #2 - Make those minis DEAD SIMPLE to print - no supports required on resin or FDM printers. #3 - Design those minis so they can be painted fast, but detailed enough to paint to a high quality if you wish. #4 - Make those minis resilient - aka less prone to breakage with small pieces, easy to travel with, survive drops on the floor, etc Thus this campaign was born! Many Patreons and Kickstarters have crazy good looking sculpts of various huge bosses, or overly fragile dynamically posed monsters - but nobody is designing minis for the working DM, who wants to throw a set of monsters on the printer before work, come home and they are sitting there finished (with no print errors), slap some paint on them quick, and use them in tonight's session. This Kickstarter is designed for every DM - regardless of what kind of fantasy game you run, what kind of printer you have, or what kind of models you are looking to fill out your ranks with, this campaign will have something for you. We have sets of all your basic monsters (orcs, goblins, gnolls, kobolds, undead, etc) plus MANY stretch goals planned out, with a backer voting to help add even more stuff to the pledge. These minis are designed for your standard fantasy game, and are scaled ~32mm with somewhat heroic proportions. They'll look great next to your existing 3D printable figs, HeroForge, Reaper Bones, etc. Minis are designed to print with zero slicer supports - just drop it on your build plate and print away. Each mini is provided unbased, based on a simple flat base (for you to decorate to your own liking), and also based on a "quick release" bevelled and channeled base (for resin printing, which makes removal from the build plate easy). In addition to carefully modeling designs to be support free, we have another advantage: I am a software engineer by trade, and developed an algorithm to help check and remove overhangs in the modeling/repair process, which leads to even easier to print minis! This campaign is easy to understand. There is one pledge level, and it gets you everything pictured on this page! All the minis below are included with your pledge. These minis will be delivered to you as STL files, with all the base options noted above. I've also release a ton of BASES , and am working on another free base pack for this campaign you can use to base these minis if you want more decorative bases. As new stretch goals are unlocked, I'll add them to the list of included minis below. There's 31 minis in the core pack, and I'm expecting to have nearly 100 minis in this campaign when all is said and done! ** PLEASE NOTE - This Kickstarter is for digital files (STLs) to make all these items on your own home 3D printer - these are not physical goods **
  11. Just some more finished terrain from the Shadowfey set from Printable Scenery. All were printed on my Ender-3 with the exception of some of the branches, the stump, and the bones, which were done in resin on my Elegoo Mars. The Hallowed Mausoleums: Dem bones: Stump, it's stump, it's in my heeeaaaaad: Gloomy Gullies:

  13. Printed on my Elegoo Mars Design from Artisan Guild. Goraku the Oni Mage, part of my Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon Project. WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79416-nippon-land-of-the-rising-moon-by-glitterwolf/page/15/#comments To show off his size I also took a picture of Goraku with Master Nurin.
  14. I've been trying to focus on more minis and terrain for Rangers of Shadow Deep, and luckily some recent Patreons and Kickstarters helped provide terrain. Here's a very humid focus of recent works, all printed on an Ender-3 Swamps, from Titan-Forge Fey Marshes, from the Shadowfey Kickstarter by PrintableScenery And to finish off the muddy theme, Fly Holes from SableBadger.
  15. Next week, the Lost Colony: Spaceship Graveyard Kickstarter goes live. Preview video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoWMlOpl2Vk Pre-signups at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/saucermenstudios/lost-colony-spaceship-graveyard Lost colony: spaceship Graveyard is the ultimate starship wreckage system. It's all about customisation, fallen spacecraft and the fragments they leave behind. This modular, 3D printable terrain is the second Kickstarter from Saucermen Studios and is even bigger and more diverse than the last. As stretch goals unlock, over 210 models become available to help you build incredibly detailed and tightly packed skirmish tables or larger, sprawling battlefields. The huge core set of 80+ interlocking spaceship wreckage parts is delivered as stl files. It features incredibly detailed, double sided hull plates with internal features, computer terminals, piping, machinery, airlocks, windows, rooftops, debris sections as well as attachable ship featuressuch as boosters, engines, landing gears, weaponry and hi-tech gadgetry such as sensor arrays.

  16. Tor Skullcrusher, dwarven tattooed monk A Thrym Project :: A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend. Started working on character of mine who is a Dwarven Tattooed Monk. As I mentioned, I created him using Hero Forge, downloaded the .STL, and had him printed elsewhere. I enjoy using the interface on Hero Forge so far. I have designed and purchased 3 STLs and 2 minis. Once I received the print, I made a manual adjustment to his skull. An ironic happenstance, given the character's name. Tor, being a dwarf and confident in his skills against ogres was going toe-to-toe with a rather large ogre with a great club. This is not something unusual so far. The party had been exploring an ogre controlled encampment searching for an item and information for a tribe of centaurs nearby. Unfortunately, Tor suffered a critical hit from the Ogre Champion's club and took a lot of damage when he was already near unconsciousness. He effectively had his namesake applied to his own noggin. So I removed a large segment of his skull by the patch to approximate the results of his disfigurement once the party ... eventually ... managed to raise him from the dead. His demeanor and appearance was never pleasing to begin with and now it's even worse. I painted on a primer coat first so I could see where I was removing plastic better. The majority of the work was done with a rounded mini-file as well as a small gouge chisel. I cleaned up the space with a small sanding twig. For a color scheme, his pallid skin is Reaper's Fair Skin. The coat is Army Painter's D&D Vampire Garments with Army Painter D&D Mouldy Wash. I put the wash over his skin and his hand wraps as well. The coat's trim is just the Vampire Garments again. For the tans I used Reaper's Desert Sand, Desert Stone, Desert Tan, and Woodland Brown; or some combination thereof. The eye patch, the lining of the coat and the belt are Army Painter's D&D Wraith Black as well as the tattoos on his right and left forearms and the side of his head. His boots started out as Reaper's Coal Black but I need to reshake the bottle before going back to it. Yes, I know the pics and the paint wash are a little dark, but the next set of pics will be better lit. I am planning on layering his highlights up to brighter points. More work to come soon. Stay Tuned and Safe. Enjoy.
  17. 3D Printed on my Elegoo Mars. Designer Artisan Guild. Part of my Shifting Sands Project, in my World she's the Stygian Queen. WIP: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79372-shifting-sands-glitterwolf-paints-egyptian-undead/page/19/ The Desert is a dangerous place, should one travel far enough, avoiding the Sand Worms, the Giant Scorpions and the Undead that roam there, one might find the ancient civilization of Stygia. Be afraid, very afraid, this place is not ruled by Men, be warned when you see the first signs of Snake statues and other signs of worship of Apophis! The first people you meet might look human, but on closer inspection you'll notice the strange eyes, the forked tongue and sometimes the scaled skin. When reaching the Capitol it will be too late. The Serpents and Snakepeople of Stygia will either devour you or enslave you. RUN! I give you Queen Sthenaria the Evil ruler of Stygia. ( Pictures below in the Temple of Apophis Photoboard I built)
  18. 3D Printed on my Elegoo Mars. Design from Heroes Infinite ( Raging Heroes 's 3D Section) Part of my Subterranean Realms Project. WIP HERE: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90052-the-subterranean-realms-by-glitterwolf/page/2/#comments Exploring caverns or mining minerals is not without danger. There is life down there, some of it miniscule and harmless, some of it though.....
  19. So I figured that I would start a thread that semi-details my adventures in learning to 3D print in resin. The printer I'm using is the Elegoo Mars Pro, which is largely the same as the base Elegoo Mars. The primary functional differences are that the build plate has a different texture, and the LCD has something called a UV matrix added to it that makes it just barely faster than the base Mars when it comes to exposure times. I don't know what a UV matrix is, I'm not exactly knowledgeable in that area, but the Mars and Mars Pro use the exact same screen for replacements so it must be something that's not part of the LCD screen itself. Other differences are that they moved the USB port to the front for easier access than the back of the base Mars, and a largely useless air filter/gasket combo that does almost nothing to actually cut down on the resin smell. Practically speaking they're so close to identical that the things I learn here should be equally applicable between both the Mars and the Mars Pro. I've had a single successful print, 1 total failure, and 1 partial failure so far. My first print was a single miniature and, as pretty much expected, it was the total failure. I bought an STL off of HeroForge, loaded it into ChituBox, gave it a slight tilt, hit the auto-support button using light supports(it's a small model, that's all it needs right?), and immediately tried to print it. The end result was that my supports failed, leaving me with a bunch of little sticks stuck to my build plate and a vaguely human shaped blob stuck on the bottom of the resin tank. It was after that failure that I went and watched a couple youtube videos about how to properly support a mini. I learned that the auto-support option absolutely sucks a donkey's nether regions because of all the things it will miss, and that the only real way to ensure a good print is to do the supports yourself, checking every little thing along the way. So after my crash course I went and did my own supports, using what I'd learned, and about 45 minutes later I went to print again. I almost immediately regretted it, as I decided to continue watching more videos about support placement once the print had actually started. What resulted from my regretful printing was a solid print, and my only completely successful print so far.. Everything is there where it should be, and yet I still wasn't happy with it. See, I still screwed up. I didn't screw up the supports by not placing enough, in fact I probably overdid it by a ton. I screwed them up by way of where I placed them. I had a couple supports going right into some of the most detailed areas on him, and supports being built off of the mini itself rather than being built from the plate up. And where I'm pretty sure that I overdid the supports I gave him a lot of little pock marks and nubs that will require a good bit of cleanup. And since a bunch of those marks are on areas that are plainly visible at all times or detailed, like the hat and his shirt, it gives the mini a bad look. Oh well. It's a learning experience. And it isn't like I'm wasting a ton of resin since it's a single, small figure. No, all I was wasting was time because with an SLA printer the print time remains the same regardless of how packed your X and Y on the build plate are. All that matters for print time is the Z. Which is why people tend to load up their build plate with as much as they can before they go printing. Each one of those little Lemmys cost me two and a half hours and about 30 cents worth of resin. I probably wasted more resin cleaning the tank after that first failed print than the first print actually used. So let's fix that, shall we? Let's load up a build plate so that when I fail again I'm blowing both time and money, though with how relatively inexpensive resin is it still isn't much money. And to change things up I went and grabbed a different model. I don't need 6 Lemmy the Dwarfs, although I have plans to pretty much print just that in a couple days. No, this time I grabbed a larger multi-part model. Since I'm currently playing the crap out of Destiny 2 I got myself a free 75mm Cayde-6(RIP, Robot Nathan Fillion) from Thingverse. It's a good sculpt, it's designed to be printed in 6 pieces total including the base, and it will let me test out some of my newly acquired knowledge of placing supports. And that's what I did. I spent probably 2 hours the other night placing supports, moving supports, double checking supports, scanning through the slices to make sure I'd gotten everything, trying to get the pieces as good as I could. It was slightly nerve wracking. But then before I headed to work today(or rather yesterday since it's past midnight here) I decided I'd let it print while I was at work. Kill two birds with one stone. I had to be gone for 12 hours, the printer had to print for 4 and a half hours, so I hit print just before I walked out the door. Sounds like a perfect deal. Boy was I wrong. It's a good thing I didn't have to actually do anything at work because I was anxious about my print. I wanted to know how it was going, and I had no way to check on it. I just had to wait until I got home. And when I got home I found this. That's a perfectly printed Cayde-6 torso and head, with horribly failed arms, legs, and cape. Apparently they just didn't stick to the build plate at all, because as you can see from their misshapen blobs, they have the thin outer edges where the bottom layer extends past the actual outline of the part to give it a bit of a raft, and then everything else is that dark area. And outside of that differentiation they're all perfectly flat. That tells me that there was just no adhesion at all. So after cleaning the tank I leveled my plate again, refilled my tank, and am currently in the process of reprinting everything. I'm writing this up just before I go to sleep, and when I wake up I'll find out how it went. Or, since it's actually been about an hour since I started it(Really? It took me that long to write this crap?) I may just go check on it now... Well, crud... That's the torso and the legs, but no arms or cape. I'm going to let it finish, though. It'll give me the chance to check out how the supports on the legs went. And if I know those supports are good, then I can turn around and make a new file of just the arms and cape. It could be that I damaged the FEP film a bit much when I pried the failed prints off. They didn't want to come off at all, and I may have accidentally put a small divot or two, and maybe a scratch, into it while trying to pry them off. But I just got paid and official replacement FEP is available for $27 on Amazon, so I'm ready to live and learn through destruction if I need to... Edit: If you guys want to see my supports just let me know and I can post screenshots. But seeing as how this is probably going to be a thread dedicated entirely to my learning process and failures, I dont know if you'll want to use them as a reference.
  20. After a certain owner of RBJ Game Company kept trash talking my simple windmill, I decided it was time for an upgrade, because every village game needs a lonely windmill to joust at. Everything is printed on an Ender 3. Here, Farmer Forscale fills in for his nobleborn cousin (Reaper 77665: Townsfolk) Next to the older Windmill, a file from Thingiverse
  21. A ranger I painted up for someone's first ever D&D character. His name is Bad Dog, he was raised by wolves. Also, first real attempt at doing some basing, added some mud to a spare base I had printed and also muddied up his boots a bit.
  22. In a previous post I mislabeled Aline the Bold also from Artisan Guild as this model so here is the actual Sony Jona. I had a happy accident with the teal cloth. I was painting in bad light (tsk tsk) and ended up mistaking silver on my palette for white. By the time I realized my mistake I was mostly done with the skirt but upon reflection (no pun intended) I thought it didn't look half bad and sort of fit the personality of the figure. The other thing I realized too late is that the base is designed so that the scroll and bottles snug up to her right foot. I realized this as I was painting the base at the end. Since she was pinned and glued in place so she remains.
  23. Hi folks and welcome to our first campaign - Dragon's Gate!
