  1. Good day everyone, I've been working on a diorama display for some time now and I thought some of you may like the see my progress. I used AutoCad for my sketches and Inventor to build the 3D model. Then I used Blender to texture the model and Slicer to generate de code for my Prusa printer. The following pictures are the steps I went through so far. It’s my first big project. It's taking long but it's a learning experience. Let me know what you think about it so far. The first image is a screenshot of the final model in Inventor. Some sketches in AutoCad software.
  2. Howdy! My name is Dom and I'm new to the world of minis. I started fiddling away with Procreate in the fall of 2017, trying to make some minis for a D&D campaign I play in. I roughed out two ghoulish-looking figures (which weren't supposed to be ghouls), grew pretty frustrated with it, and shelved the whole business for 2018. I decided to give it another go in January, and started another five for a new D&D campaign. Progress was slow but better than the first go-round, and spurred on by an opportunity to apply for a mini design talent program with a large company, I finally finishe
  3. After converting Ingrid to better match the character she's going to represent (giving her a bow and rapier), last night I got to painting. I started with thinned down brown liner, then went straight to the eyes with Linen White. Surf Aqua was used for her irises, and brown liner for the pupil. I painted her flesh with a 2:1 Warrior Flesh: Linen White mix. Her hair is Blond Shadow with highlights of Tanned Leather. Her lower lip is a 1:1 blend of her flesh tone with Old West Rose. The armor, gloves, boots were painted with a thinned Rich Leather. The bow and scabbard are
  4. Hey there, I'm very new to sculpting, and i was hoping for some advice in removing the "seams" that show up when you add a new blob of greenstuff onto your model, I've been using Vaseline, and a small slightly rounded steel dental tool for the bulk of my sculpt, i can get most of the height difference to go away, but the seam is still visible, I'm mostly trying to blend it into other soft green stuff underneath it, i don't have too much trouble blending a soft layer into a cured layer, any advice, tips or techniques Also, I appreciate all the great tips I've already found on the
  5. Hi Guys! Another quick update! I've just finished adding hair onto Deva. I love this sculpt, the only thing that i didn't like was that she was bald. I wanted more of a Valkyrie descending from heaven look for the model as i'm going to need it for an upcoming campaign. So, out comes the greenstuff. I'd previously experimented with adding beards to models and i figured that hair couldn't be much different could it? Turns out it's really different. Hair flows in different ways to beards, particularly if you're wanting long flowing locks of the stuff. Still, i'm very happy with how it came
  6. Quick question regarding Bones and Greenstuff. I have a couple of Bones minis I'm going to be painting up here shortly that desperately need some gap filling done on them. I know that Bones minis generally do not need to be primed (other than maybe a thin layer of liner) but how does the GS used to fill gaps interact? Do I still need to hit it with some primer? On a related question, have any of you used the liquid green stuff? I'm assuming that it is also potentially pretty hard on brushes, much like brush on primer, but was curious as to what your experiences were. Some of
  7. To those who haven't seen these in the Work In Progress Section: I will readily admit to a somewhat bizarre imagination aka NUTS. SO making Goblin Faeries seemed like a fine idea. Reaper does make these lovely fairy wings; I do have abundance of out of production, but oh-so-merry G.W. multi-part, plastic Night Goblin parts; AND way to much time to spend following my imagination to strange places. The individual photos are taken on my work table with some group pictures taken in The Witches' Shanty Town Board. The Fling Circus, one by one: Smiling Jack Himself:
  8. Sitting at my desk, painting up goblins, I decided that I needed to do different goblins, but I didn't have any different goblins, just the mace guy with a shield, and the spear guy with a shield... And because one was left handed, and the other right handed, I couldn't just do a weapon swap, so I cut off both their arms!! That sort of worked... the arms don't really fit cleanly though. So rather than try to make them fit, I decided it'd be easier to just cover it with fur. Eh, it'll look okay when painted up...
  9. I was having some trouble finding a monk miniature that I liked for my D&D character, so I decided to learn how to use greenstuff to make my own. I played around with it and looked up different tutorials but so far this is my third sculpt, and my second using an armature. Anywho, enough about all that nonsense. There's a lot I have to learn, so any criticism and advice would be very helpful! Here's a shot with the reference photo in the back.
  10. So as some of you may know, I have been busy converting a Team Frog Duck into a certain Jet packing, Glitter Happy Monotreme... and I have finally finished him... So I give you..... (well you know who it is....!) He was a lot of fun to do, stretched my sculpting skills and ingenuity a bit, but I am pretty happy with the results. Thanks for looking! George WiP here
  11. Many moons ago, when the first official preview for D&D 5E were coming out, a friend and I were discussing that the Paladin preview had a Half-Orc as the example art, and it would be interesting to see more atypical race/class combos in the books. He had suggested a Tiefling Barbarian, and lo and behold, not but five minutes later, WotC previewed the Barbarian and it was...a generic Viking style Human. Later that day, during downtime at work, I thought I'd make it up to both of us and sketch out a concept for a Tiefling Barbarian. I kept the 4E & 5E pact-style Tieflings, and took a
  12. I want to make a few bandana type hats for my Orks, as my theme with them is Pirates! I have silicon clay shapers, Greenstuff, vaseline and well, gumption. But I don't know quite how to go about this. I usually just use Greenstuff for gap filling and such. I was thinking of basically taking the GS, squishing it flat, and cutting triangles out of it, which I would then use to form the "hat" portion (I'm envisioning these like a kerchief if that helps make sense). One thing I'm very uncertain about is how to do a "knot" type look on the back? If anyone has any advice about the knot, or a
  13. ***Since I don't have enough projects going already....**** So this figure showed up in the BOGW, and I flashed back to Casket Works #13 where Reaper had Team Frog stuff in the catalog... (Really bad scan....) I don't really do anthropomorphic minis, but I saw the inner platypus screaming to get out, so.... Drilled a couple of holes in his bottom, and put a piece of paper clip into them as an armature for the new tail: Then added some greenstuff, Thinking that once that hardens, I can work from there to try to do some fur lines.... Any Ideas on how to ma
  14. Here is a completed Xanthia Skyclad, from Hasslefree Miniatures. She's standing on a base from Micro Arts Studios (in their forest collection, the wround 30mm group). Photos linked for nudity. Xanthia front Xanthia profile Xanthia back Xanthia quarter profile There is also a basing thread and a WIP thread. I gave her two small tattoos -- a triskelion on the right shoulder, and a band around her right ankle. Those I just drew on using a .005 Micron pen with archival blue ink, on the base coat, and then covered them over with multiple very thin layers of flesh tones. This is the first
  15. There's been some water droplets forming on the inside of the cap of my bottle of liquid greenstuff. I've noticed this a while ago, but never really bothered about it. Should I be concerned about it?
  16. Recently I added some foliage elements to my Narthrax. I'll share how I made them here! First, materials: For this, I only used the greenstuff, Vaseline and the purple tool Andy made for me. (Shameless plug for Andy Pieper's Sculpting Classes at Reapercon- take them!!) But, those are my favorite tools to use when sculpting in general. They are a pin tool from my ceramics set, a narrow flat wax shaper and two of the extra firm clay shapers. The plastic surface I use for this is the insert from the reaper paint caddy- the little dividers I always end up taking out to stuff more p
  17. "When a powerful spellcaster with a strong personality, a lust for life, and a remorselessly evil soul dies and is buried in a graveyard infused with eldritch magic, a strange phenomenon sometimes occurs. The flesh of the decaying body fats and instructs the very worms that gnaw, and these graveworms quicken not only on corruption but upon the spellcaster’s memories and magical power. The spellcaster’s very soul is consumed in this vile process, only to be split apart to inhabit each of the individual chewing worms in so many fragments. The result is a hideous hive mind of slithering life
  18. In my Pathfinder group, I have a paladin who is fast approaching level 5, and I've decided that she'll be getting a nice shiny mount as her Divine Bond. As such, the quest for a mini began. While Reaper has a nice bundle of horses, I couldn't find anything that was quite right for my pally, so I ended up grabbing Starmane and commencing a conversion. Starmane I originally bought to convert into a centaur, but I hadn't got round to it and then I decided he was just too pretty to chop up to that degree... But I've not got a lot of use for unicorns. So instead, he got adopted for m
  19. So here he is so far. He's being made for my daughter, so his name will probably end up being, Buckbeak... And that's okay. But I'm painting it in more of a golden eagle and bay color scheme, rather than the gray. I tried a dusky white/gray scheme first, but the sculpt didn't lend itself to those colors... I couldn't for the land find a satisfactory, unpainted hippogryph, so I used Starmane, Unicorn (02151) and Griffon (77157)--both lovely sculpts by Sandra Garrity. Took a little wiring to make it solid and to act as a skeleton for first plumber's epoxy, then greenstuff. The base is
  20. Alright, I'm still new to sculpting but I wanted to replicate something a friend of mine drew. Unfortunately after several failed attempts I haven't made too much progress. What I want is "this" What I made, is "this" I'd like some pointers and words of wisdom and maybe some instructional pictures to help me out with this project.
  21. So with trepidation I am starting a thread to track the likely painfully slow and experimental process of mashing up the Bones Eldritch Demon with a Games Workshop Chaos Space Marine Daemon Prince. Lots of Greenstuff will be involved. Probably blood and tears as well. I have the initial blush of an idea of what I want to accomplish but large sections are essentially going to be sketching with greenstuff. The plan is for this to end up as a Black Legion Daemon Prince that is Lovecraft Mythos meets 40K Chaos. I picked Black Legion for this because I already have Daemon Princes finished/i
  22. So, I've been working on this fellow for about 3 months. He's the Darksword Ranger (with bow!) sculpted by Jeff Grace. He's a gorgeous figure, with a very expressive face. I loved painting him. The bird is Reaper's Hawk Familiar from Bones. I went to the Knoxville painting day last weekend, and Wren helped me figure out how to fix him up, so now I'm setting him free into the showoff forum! However, I'm taking him to Reapercon, so if anyone has any suggestions, please please let me know! I feel much better about the hair now! Enjoy! The Wip is located here in my runnin
  23. I think I'm done with this one. I sculpted the base from Sculpey and the miniature from Greenstuff. C&C always welcome! And a scale shot, just for fun. It did end up larger than I'd originally wanted. All respect to those mini sculptors out there- it's hard to make things so tiny!
  24. Warning, contains spoilers for the Pathfinder Adventure Path "Serpent's Skull". The Serpent's Skull campaign that I'm GMing is almost finished, and I wanted to put together something special for the final boss. I haven't been able to find any minis that came even close to representing this thing, so I decided to try to create my own 'mini' for the final boss out of green stuff. A lot of green stuff. I have made modifications to small miniatures with green stuff before, but I have never tried to sculpt something on my own before I made this thing. I expected it to come out horribly. I
