  1. I have yet to unpack the Elegoo Mars. However I installed Chitubox. I have now loaded files. As recommended on Youtube I filled the bed with several minis to print. And I laid them flat to speed up the printing process and tilted them a little. Test subjects: Snake Warrior Cobra ( with base) Bat Demon Small Foo Dog statues Asian Ghost Oni in three parts. Added the automated supports.
  2. Found the 3d model while browsing Pinterest and reached out to the designer and they sent me the file so I could have it printed
  3. As an entry to @Glitterwolf’s painting Pandemic challenge I figured I’d try something a little different. I printed up this scaled-down nurse from Silent Hill. Plan is to have her with a wall that is flaking away (crackle paint is the intent here) and dirty tile floor. a long time ago (I swore I had it bookmarked but alas...) I found a write-up by an individual who painted up some amazing veiny zombie skin using batting as a mask for the airbrush with the dark bruised colours going on first before adding the skin tone overtop. Since I can’t find the reference, I’m going on trial and error and some fuzzy memory. im going to have to be very careful with the cleaver as it is less than 1mm thick. primed white and her dress was then covered with tape to minimize cleanup later. A good vibrant purple (mix of warcolours Violet 5 and Vallejo game air alien purple). Never planned on painting a zombie purple before. Then I hit it, using some batting that I teased and stretched out with Vallejo game air electric blue. The right, her left, leg turned out better but it’s more splotchy than veiny. I feel for the skin layer I’ll need a finer mesh (more space between) but thicker strands. Will have to play with the batting to see what I can come up with. Thinking of priming up a couple plastic spoons to try this on to see how things turn out before I attack her. Hope to start some work on the base tomorrow night. Thanks for looking.
  4. So with the big confrontation coming for my group this Friday, I’ve been busily prepping some terrain to go along with the portal I posted up last week. some crystal formations (wish I had hollowed them). Done with mostly clear resin, though there was a little red left in the tank. Based. Used green painters tape to fill the gap in the bases. I may regret this... Bases have been prepped with some Vallejo texture paste. You may notice a large surprise for my guys who is going to interrupt their encounter with the Drow. His wings are printing right now. Thanks for looking.
  5. So I’ve been burning through resin for the past few weeks. Been focusing on busts as my collection of unpainted minis is... impressive. I should be painting those, but... Other than my airbrush exploding on me (paint bubbling up through the trigger), this guy hasn’t taken much time yet. Got this from Fotis Mint on Patreon along with a bunch of other ones. Printed with a mix of regular clear Elegoo resin mixed with clear red ABS-like Elegoo, about 70/30. Primed with Vallejo black primer then base coated with Reaper Coal Black (my new favourite black!!) with a drop of Minitaire Green ghost tint to help enhance the green hue. he then got a bib and I hit his face with Reaper Mist Green mixed with some white with a lighter (much more white than Most Green) highlight. i then glossed up the face with some varnish. His face then got some washes. Old GW Ogryn Flesh thinned down all over, Vallejo Model Wash Dark Green on the skin and Minitaire Fresh Blood Ghost Tint on the lips and teeth. The crown then got a base coat of Reaper Scorched Metal. Apparently I didn’t take shots of it, but I then mat coated it and cleaned up the black around the face. Tonight I’ll bring the skin back to an almost pure white, leaving the washes in the cracks and I’ll get his mouth done. The crown is a more silver colour in the comics but I’m planning on sponging lighter metallics on to give it a less pristine look. The leather will be relatively plain as I want the face to stand out, but it will get some highlights and buckles picked out. Thanks for looking.

    The Child

    After having whipped up a bunch of cake decorations on my 3D printer for my daughter’s birthday (Disney Descendants stuff), my son figured he should get the same treatment. While this is unlikely to go on his cake, after watching the Mandalorian, like many, he was smitten by the Child, specifically the soup scene. this is a pretty quick job of base coat, drybrush then wash (repeated on the clothes because I tried to dirty them up and made a mess), with a bit of more delicate work around the eyes. The vallejo water effect in the cup clouded a little but it should clear up in a couple days. Am quite happy with the little fellow and Mrs. Rahz is thrilled and hope my little dude will as well. thanks for looking.

    Plague Doctor Bust

    WIP thread Here STL was picked up on Myminifactory from TytanTroll Miniatures. And here he is with an LED inside. The one in the light box didn’t turn out as clear due to the LED being too high. I may or may not leave it in. And when holding it in a better spot. Was a fun little job. Probably spent about 3 hours painting it. It’s pretty much some base coats applied by airbrush, a ton of dry brushing and then a variety of washes. thanks for looking.
  8. Since apparently I am incapable of working on a single project, here is another 3D print that is presently “under the brush”. Seemed sadly appropriate for these days. Here he is before the cure. a little Vallejo black primer. Picked out the beak with Vallejo Dark Fleshtone by brush. Went back to the airbrush and hit all the black parts with Reaper Coal Black (seriously, is there another black?!). The beak then got some Reaper Rich Leather mixed with increasing amounts of Model Air Sand, focusing the lighter sand colour on top. The straps for the mask were painted with Rich Leather as well. The beak then got a drybrush of straight Vallejo model Air Sand, followed by a very light and selective dry brush with Warcolours White. The black then got a heavy dry brush of Reaper Jungle Mist. next up will be some washes with some details being picked out and some metallic around the goggle lenses. Thanks for looking.
  9. Another 3D print that I’m working on, this time a big one. I’ve shoes away from buying/printing dragons for the most part as I have a ton of amazing Reaper ones still to paint (or finish... ) but this one was a freebie of sorts from one of the creators I follow on Patreon. In keeping with my clear resin tricks, I whipped up the base really quickly and then stalled on how I was going to paint the actual dragon... oops! I masked off the crystals and plugged the holes for the feet and primed it with a mix of brown and grey Vallejo primers, drybrushed it with a tan followed by a tan mixed with white and then it got a series of Vallejo model washes (green, grey and dark brown). I then peeled off the mask and gave the crystals a quick coat with Tamiya Clear Green. For the actual dragon, the plan now is to paint the heavier scales like the base with the softer belly and flesh being brown. Like my recent plague doctor bust, I masked his eyes so they will be the same green as the crystals on his base. I toyed with putting a light in his head as well, but seems to be doing that to everything all of a sudden, and skipped it. in case you’re wondering about the pink, that’s what mixing the Vallejo red and grey primers did. The base was that colour before the drybrush and washes. Hoping to get some more work on the brown and get the drybrush done on his scales this weekend. That’s going to be a lot of drybrushing!! Thanks for looking.

    Portal

    Quick job here. Printed this off a couple weeks back in clear red resin, mostly because I've had the most luck with my current settings and a mix of clear and clear red resins. Decided to use the clear resin to my advantage. Quick shot of Vallejo Black primer by brush, couple coats of Reaper wolf grey mixed with the black primer, then a drybrush with just Wolf Grey followed by a lighter one with Wolf Grey mixed with a little Daler Rowney White ink, followed by a quick wash of Vallejo Dark Grey. The clear red then got a coat of Tamiya Clear Red, and I really like the look. Not going to win any awards, but for a D&D prop, and the little bit of time required, I'm calling this a win. Total about 30 minutes spent painting this, minus some drying time. When my PCs finally reach a portal that may lead them out of the Underdark, there will be a decent set piece on the board before all hell breaks loose. Thanks for looking.
  11. Following a couple trials to print these (really I was looking for things to print with the clear green resin and Necrons sprung to mind) I managed to get a good set of 6 printed up. Then the idea skittered across my brain that I should put a light in them... So I have started painting them in the stereotypical dark+metal+green and picked up a small box of LEDs along with a coupe switches. Here’s the group shot. A bit of Reaper Coal Black and some Vallejo Copper. They need at least another coat. Test with a green LED held inside. Once they get a bit more paint on them, I’ll build up some bases to hide the following bits in them. Hoping to get another coat of paint on them later tonight along with the start of some edge highlights, but I’m solo-parenting so we’ll see how the evening goes. For now, it’s time to take the kids to their music lessons. Thanks for looking.
  12. Hi, my Lovecraft inspired range of 3D printable miniatures and bigatures is live on Kickstarter now. The campaign is currently over 400% funded with 5 stretch goals unlocked and 25 days to go. If you fancy adding some Eldritch beasties to your collection then join us on the campaign! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spareoomstudio/creatures-of-cromsfall-lovecraft-inspired-minis-for-3dprint/
  13. Just got back my Chaos Marauder sculpt from Shapeways. The primer is showing the print lines that were hidden when it was frosted. To be honest though, i can't really see that much wrong with it with my eyes, only when zoomed in. I've included the original sculpt for comparison
  14. Hello all, i just thought i'd post this up as i was excited to see it arrive in the post today: Mr Stitches the Golem and Cat the Cat at a total of 50mm It's exactly as it arrived out of the box from Shapeways (in the extreme detail material)and cost a total of, i think $35 inc. shipping. I haven't cleaned it or anything and i realise that it's not the easiest to see but i just wanted to pop it up here anyway!
  15. The grand folks at Firaxis games produced a winner for me. They updated the classic XCOM game and produced XCOM 2. I thought it stayed true to the feel of the original game while adding great looks and good game play. The plot is Aliens have invaded Earth and are trying to take over. You have to stop them and save the human race. In the second release you failed and your team are now a rag tag bunch of terrorists trying to bring down the one world government. One of the nice things they did was to throw the game open to modding. If you purchased the game on steam you can also subscribe to the XCOM to developer package free of charge. They make the tools and ALL the assets from the game available. I wanted to see if I could extract game assets and print some mementos for my self. I found out you definitely can extract the assets. The only issue with printing them is they're optimized for visual presentation and not for 3d printing. I started with something simple and edited it for FDM printing. I present the Alien overlord statue! (You show your love for your overlords by blowing it up in the introductory trailing mission) FDM has issues with "overhangs". You can't draw molten plastic with nothing under it. Gravity pulls the molten plastic and it doesn't just hang in mid air. Darn gravity! I split the statue in half so there are minimal overhangs. The arms are built up vertically from the bottom to the top: Each mirrored half was printed: Then a test fitting: Slapped on some one part bondo (for fixing scratches on cars): a bunch of sanding: Then some spray painted gold paint: A 3d printed base: And it's done! I'm happy with the result. The surface texture is still not wonderful. I'm still experimenting with methods to improve that. It's supposed to look like this: Have a great weekend, See you at ReaperCon! Jay
  16. After getting a 3d printer I was thinking about how to organize my painting area a little better. Here's my list of features: A place to put the bottles of reaper paints. I have the colors being used for the figure without hunting for them. A place to put brushes while not actively painting. A well for a little water for brush cleaning. A small wet palette area. My big wet palette collects dirt, flecks of dried paint, cat hair, etc. If the wet palette is small I will have to change it often. It won't have time to grow mold or collect dirt This is the result: The larger well on the left serves as the wet palette. The smaller one of the right is for water. I'll bring it along to Reapercon if anyone wants a close look. Later! Jay

    AMC Robot 3D print

    I finally pulled the trigger on a 3D printer. Although it's not related the Reaper my wife thought I should post it here too. I sculpted, printed, assembled, and painted the robot from one of the AMC movie PSA's. If you're interested you can read more about the project here: http://www.3dprintingforum.org/threads/2352-The-AMC-robot?p=7145#post7145 I've made a base and a paint station for myself as well. Since they're a lot more Reaper/Miniature related I'll definitely be posting those shortly.
